Game 4: Eickhoff @ Quintana
Eickhoff, and his .833 OPS against lefties is masterful against a line up of all lefties (albeit, scrubs, but still)
A Bourne 2 RBI double in the first is halved by a Choo sac fly.
A 7th inning Altuve RBI single to the pitcher is the only other thing that really happens as Lighting win and secure the split.

Game 3: Fiers @ Anderson
Fiers dazzeled with 7 IP, 7 H, 1 ER and 11K.
Anderson did not with 6 IP, 5 ER.
8th inning Matz comes on and I do some quick math to find out he can only throw 0.2 IP. I let him throw a full inning, then tell Glander that he has a penalty for next year. Battle won, war lost.
Salem wins 5-1.
WP Fiers (11-13)
LP Anderson (12-11)
Game 4: Strasburg @ Quintana
Stras’s struggles against the Blazers in his career have been well documented. Today, 7 IP with only a single run .
Quintana was better, pitching 7 with no runs.
Protecting a one run lead in the 8th was left to Charlie Furbush. After a Furbush E, he coughed up a 2 run double to Casey McGehee, who apparently is still alive and the Tipper take the lead.
Bottom 9, with 2 outs, this really happened. Teixeira PH and reached on an E4. Moved to second on a wild pitch, and scored on a Johnson single
Top 11, Warren on again and loads the bases but escapes the jam.
Bottom 11, TRex singled but Choo was cut down at home.
Bottom 12, with 2 outs, Carpenter singles Iwakuma to second (who failed to advance the runner on a bunt attempt). Weeks is brought in the PR for Iwakuma and before the pitch to Betts is thrown, Glander writes GG. Betts lined a double to left for the walk off win .
WP Warren (10-9)
LP Igleasias (6-8)
Blazers split the season series with Salem. Blazers are at 95 wins and need 5 more wins in the next 12 games to extend their record streak of 100 win seasons to 5.
Blazers travel to Boulevards
Game 1: Kershaw @ Kazmir
Blazers score 5 in the first highlighted by a Choo 3 run bomb.
A Raburn 2 run bomb in the 7th is all Kershaw would need, as he went 27 up, 27 down to become the first pitcher in BDBL history to throw a PERFECT GAME, needing 104 pitches to throw the gem tallying 11 K’s in the process.
WP Kershaw 21-7
LP Kazmir (12-12)
