Blazers close out chapter 5 with an up north trip to the Lightning.
Game 1: Kershaw @ Gray
Altuve and Frazier go yard off of Kershaw. That is a tad much but I guess I can handle it. Jay Bruce homering off of Kershaw is just plain dumb.
Betts launches a HR for New Milford, but it’s not enough as Lightning win 4-2.
WP Gray (11-12)
LP Kershaw (19-7)
S Schultz (2)
Game 2: Tanaka @ Gonzalez
Scoreless through 6.5, but Bruce goes yard again to put Granite State up 1-0.
Tied at one in the 9th and Choo does some MVP shit by depositing a ball over the right field wall for a 2 run lead. KRod does some closer shit by finishing it out as Blazers win 3-1.
WP O’Day (2-2)
LP Worley (3-2)
S KRod (31)
Game 3: Anderson @ Milone
Anderson goes 5 giving up 16 hits and 2 walks leading to 9 ER. Lefties him. Righties hit him. Grandmothers hit him. (no, really, he got slapped leaving the field) Lightning roll 9-4.
WP Milone (8-5)
LP Anderson (12-9)
Game 4: Quintana @ Niese
Bottom 2, a Bourn double plates a run and puts GSL up 1-0. (the GSL lefties hitting left handed pitching in this series was retarded).
Bottom 4, a RBI groundout and Niese RBI double make it 3-0 Lightning.
Bottom 6, a Betts 2 run bomb and Tulo RBI double tie the game.
Top 10, Teixeria PH’s and lines an RBI double giving NM the lead.
Bottom half Warren induces a DP as Blazers get the road split 4-3.
WP KRod (2-1)
LP Hinojsa (1-1)
S Warren (4)
The New Milford magic number is down to 3 games.
