Blazers travel to the high altitude to face the Outlaws.
Game 1: Kershaw @ Muscrat
Kershaw was great, going 7 IP with 1 ER. Unfortunately, John Muscrat, who has never pitched in the BDBL before, threw a gem. Blazers get first and third with no outs in the 9th and then load the bases with one out, but can’t get a hit with RISP ( a theme for the first 2 games) as Outlaws escape 1-0. “what kind of scouting report do you have for a Muscrat,” Peburn said after the game.
WP Muscrat (1-0)
LP Kershaw (9-2)
S Baez (8)
Game 2: Tanaka @ Leake
1-1 in the 4th, Bethancourt hits a 2 run bomb to untie it. Blazers still can’t hit, and lose 3-1.
WP Miranda (4-3)
S Watson (3)
Game 3: Quintana @ Greinke
In a battle of New Milford’s former highly touted CY caliber arm and New Milford’s laughed at when drafted CY caliber arm, the current CY candidate didn’t disappoint (6 IP, 4 H, 8 K). Greinke meanwhile, Saunders and Castro connect for 2 run bombs and Tulo hits a Grand Salami. Grandy goes yard too as Blazers roll in a laugher 12-0.
WP Quintana (15-6)
LP Greinke (8-8)
S Morrow (1)
Game 4: Moore @ Wacha Wacha
Moore is all over the place with walk after walk and gets pulled after 3.1 IP.
Top 5, Freeman rips a 2 run triple followed by an RBI single from Kinsler for a 3-1 lead.
Blazers break out late, highlighted by a HR from Betts, as Blazers split the series with a 7-2 win.
WP Bowman (3-1)
LP Wacha (3-9)
Blazers are 2-2 on the chapter.
