Series Highlights:

~ The Blues are inhospitable hosts to Pittsburgh, roughing up the Badgers 14-0 and 11-5 in their two game sweep.  After a sub-.500 start to the season in April, the Blues are a Frick best, 15-5 so far in May.

~ Phoenix and Scurvy split a pair, with the Miners taking an extra inning nail biter in the first game and the Dogs coming back to salvage the split winning another close game when Daulton Varsho leads off the home half of the ninth with a walk off homer.

It’s randomness like that that irks me sometimes. It’s cute when it happens as a one-off, but stuff like that happens it seems every other week in the sim. When was the last time you saw an MLB game end on a wild pitch? Has it happened this century?

Series Highlights:

~ The respective conference leaders are on a roll.  In the KML, Santa Ana is on an EIGHT game winning streak that puts them alone on top of the division for the first time this year.  The Frick leading Bums have won SEVEN in a row to separate themselves a little from the pack.

May 19th

~ Hawaiian's John Means and Chicago's Luis Castillo hook up in a pitchers duel (Means - 7 shutout innings, 3 H, 9 K's . . . Castillo - 8 shutout innings, 2 H, 10 K's).  The Hammers are down to their last out in the top of the ninth when Paul Goldschmidt steps up, works a full count and deposits the last pitch of the at bat into the left field bleachers to give Hawaiian a 1-0 lead.  After striking out the leadoff man in the bottom of the ninth and then sitting through a 63 minute rain delay, Hammers closer Collin McHugh gets himself into trouble allowing a single, issuing a walk and throwing a wild pitch.  Michael Fulmer comes out of the bullpen to rescue his closer and the Hammers secure a wet and wild 1-0 win.

May 20th

~ A wild game in Roxbury sees Motor City steal the lead from the Robots with four runs in the eighth and ninth, the Robots come back to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth, and the teams slog through four extra innings before each team scores in the 13th.  Take a look at the wild finish to this wild game.

In that second game between my Blues and the Miners, it went 11 innings. The Miners were down 4-1 in the 9th and scored 3 to tie it. Stayed that way to the 11th, and the Miners put up 2, both runs with two outs. Then the Blues returned the favor, but scored 3 runs with 2 out. The last run was on a wild pitch.

Another set of short series:

~ Santa Ana blows into Ann Arbor and takes a pair from the frontrunning Landlubbers.  The two wins run the Winds win streak to SIX games and sets them in a tie atop the KML with Ann Arbor.

~ Mother Lode takes two from Arizona, and Moonstruck does the same to Phoenix as the Argos and Blues continue to chase down the Frick leading Bums, who continue to hold them at bay with a pair of one run victories over Pittsburgh.

~ Austin Gomber of Great Auk pitches eight shutout innings allowing just three hits as he outduels Scurvy ace, Shohei Ohtani in the Auk's 1-0 win on the 17th.  Gerrit Cole comes back the next night and strikes out 12 in seven dominant innings and Harrison Bader goes 4-4 with his 4th home run and the Dogs split the series with a 6-1 victory.

~ The Rattlers offense keeps humming right along, punishing Motor City pitching with 24 runs on 31 hits in Windy City's two game sweep.  While Vlad Jr. holds his average at a league leading .378, there is no one hero over the two games as 16 of the 18 starters over the two games collects at least on hit; 17 of the 18 score at least one run; and 13 of the 18 drive in at least one.  The very definition of a team effort.
