Cowtippers finish the season series with the Blazers.
Game 1: Hutchinson @ Kershaw
With 2 outs in the second, Kershaw’s perfect streak ended as Morse grounded a single up the middle.
Top 3, Reyes singled up the middle to give the Tippers a 1-0 lead.
Bottom 5, Carpenter ties the game with a RBI single.
Bottom 6, Kershaw left the game with a random injury.
Top 8, Warren comes on and a bunch of bull shit happened, with a bunch of IF singles scoring 3 runs.
Bottom 9, a Dietrich 2 run bomb brought the tying run to the plate, but Teixeira K’s to end the game.
WP Hunter (4-0)
LP Warren (9-9)
S Street (9)
Game 2: Shoemaker @ Tanaka
Game 2 featured what looked like 2 AAA teams with the difference that New Milford had an all star on the mound and Salem had a AAA pitcher on the mound.
Nieuwenhuis HR in the second is follow by a Gillespie RBI double.(for New Milford)
Bottom 3, a Lowrie HR pushed the NM lead to 5-0.
Bottom 4, MVChoo with the RBI triple and it’s 6-0.
A late Betts PH 2 RBI single rounded out a Blazer 9-2 rout.
WP Tanaka (10-4)
LP Shoemaker (3-13)
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.
