Nick's Team - Wha Happnd?

Fish at Nick
Game 1: Carpenter at Cain
Chris Carpenter helped his cause with a two out single in the top of the second, plating Hawpe and Wright. Nick answered with a Council double in the bottom of the third, plating Ryan Howard and Chipper Jones. With great pitching, there would be no more scoring in regulation. In the top of the 10th, Guzmon loaded the bases with a Castillo single, Hanley error, intential walk to Braun, and a walk to Hawpe, driving in a run. Trevor Hoffman took care of the 10th for the save.
Fish Wins: 3-2
Win – Thatcher
Loss – Guzmon
Save- Hoffman
Home Runs: None

Game 2: Hanson at Wells
Ink manufacturers rejoiced at the site of this game – the pitchers in this game did not have their “good stuff.” Wells gave up an RBI single to Lee in the 1st, then three runs in the 3rd with a double from Brad Hawpe. Then Tommy Gun Hanson had a meltdown – he gave up 7 runs in the bottom of the 5th, a majority of the damage done by Ryan Howard with a Grand Slam Home Run. In the top of the 6th, Fukudome pulled on down the line to make the game 7 -7. A solo home run from Derrick Lee grabbed the lead at 8-7 in the top of the 7th. Insurance runs were scored in the top of the 8th – Ryan Braun and Derrick Lee both batted home runs to push the lead to 10-8. Trevor Hoffman took care of the ninth for the save
Fish Wins: 10-8
Win – Wilson
Loss – Vargus
Save- Hoffman
Home Runs: Molina, Fukudome, Howard

Game 3: Oswalt at Maine
Ryan Braun led the game off with a double and a run scored in the 1st. Nick had big inning in the 5th, Adam Dunn capped the inning with a 3 run double. That was all Nick needed to take the game.
Nick Wins: 6-3
Win – Maine
Loss – Oswalt
Save- Broxton
Home Runs: Counsell
MVP of Series: Howard – 7AB, 3 Runs, 3 Hits, 1 HR, 7 walks

  1. Nice recap dude. Now were getting some good content on here.

    Funny how the MVPs from the last two series with Fish was from the losing side. Individual performances be damned, he's got the balance.
