Outlaws travel to New Milford to take on the Blazers.
Game 1: Miranda @ Kershaw
Goldy is HBP and Springer goes yard for the first two batters to start the game for Kershaw. This is Clayton Fucking Kershaw and his BDBL stats up to this point are fucking stupid.
Bottom 1, with 2 outs, Kinsler ties the game with a 2 run jack and Tulo gives the Blazers the lead with a RBI single.
Bottom 6, a Kinsler HR makes it 6-3.
Bottom 7, a Kinsler RBI double and Saunders RBI single make it 8-3.
Bottom 8, Grandy and Tulo go back to back for a 10-4 lead.
Top 9, Treinen can’t get many outs so Kimbrel is brought in to get the final out in what is now a save situation. After 3 walks, one of which lead to a run, future Hall of Famer Aaron Judge lines out as Blazers escape 10-8.
WP Kershaw (4-1)
LP Miranda (2-1)
S Kimbrel (25)
Game 2: McHugh @ Tanaka
Bottom 3, a Freeman 2 RBI 3B and Grandy 3 run bomb make it 5-0.
Bottom 5, a Grandy RBI 3B and Tulo RBI single and it’s 7-0.
Tanaka (6.2 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 7 K) wouldn’t need 6 of those runs. Blazers win 7-0.
WP Tanaka (9-5)
LP McHugh (6-8)
Game 3: Greinke @ Quintana
Bottom 3, a Betts solo shot and Kinsler 2 run jack make it 3-0.
Bottom 5, a Carp HR, Kinsler RBI single, and Tulo 2 RBI double make it 7-0.

WP Quintana (10-5)
LP Greinke (6-5)
Game 4: Leake @ Moore
A Suarez RBI single in the first and Martin RBI BB in the second is matched by a Tulo RBI single and Leake WP in the second.
Bottom 3, Betts reaches on an error, stole second, moved to third on a groundout and scored on a WP to put NM up 3-2.
Moore is pulled after 4 giving up 4 H and 5 BB but only 2 runs. Devenski goes 3 holding the Outlaws in check.
Meanwhile a Kinsler single and Saunders sac fly make it 5-2.
Tulo HR’s in the 6th for a 6-2 lead.
Tulo HR’s again for 3 more in the 8th, and Blazers complete the sweep 9-2.
WP Devenski (9-3)
LP Leake (5-8)
Kinsler (571/647/1.357) and Tulo (563/529/1.313) go ape shit and drive in 20 runs with 3 HR each. Betts and Grandy hit a paltry 2 HR each.
