C.C.'ing you in the playoffs.

AL - TORTO @ SPENCER @ Morry's Bar, Beaver Dam

GAME 1 - Roy Halladay @ Slick Rick Porcello

Spencer kicked off the scoring in the bottom of the 2nd with a Pudge Rodriguez 2RBI-double. Spencer 2-0. Torto tied things at 2-2 in the 3rd on a 2RBI-triple. Spencer would take a 4-2 lead on a J.D. Drew 2RBI-double in the 4th. The Cover Girl, Evan Longoria added a solo shot in the 7th to make it 5-2 Spencer. Torto would tie in the 8th however, as Justin Morneau smacked a bases loaded double. Jerry Laird was hit by Darren Oliver to lead off the 9th. After a Oliver balk, Laird scired the winning run on a Magpipes Ordonez single. TORTO WINS 6-5

GAME 2 Justin Verlander @ Nick Blackburn
This game was pitcher dominated. Spencer scored first on a RBI-double by Cesear Izturis. Spencer added one more on a Franklin "Do You have them, GUTS!" Gutierrez RBI-single. Torto made it 2-1 in the top of the 8th on a Jason "Pears" Bartlett RBI-single, but Torto's shoddy defense cost him in the bottom of the 8th. Big Tex reached on a Rob Cano error.

Torto cut the gap scoring one on a bases loaded walk, but Spencer scored right after in the bottom of the 5th on an Average Mexican RBI-single. "Pears" Bartlett jacked a meaningless solo bomb in the top of 8th. C.C. Sabathia dominated for the second straight start and picked up his second straight CG. SPENCER WINS 4-2.

  2. Nice recap Spence. I'll get the stats updated on the sidebar this evening. Be sure to scan me those scoresheets so I can track my stats. Then I can figure out who to ship to Triple AAA Kewaskum first - Jason Bartlett, I'm looking in your direction...

  3. Spencer - could you scan our series as well? I think King Felix is in the running for most strike outs this season, with 16 in his first outing.

  4. Torto and Fish - good job getting your hands on those scoresheets to double-check Spencer's numbers. Aaron Hill with 6 RBI's - come on....

    Just kidding buddy - nice start.

    I heard Lou Pinella announced he was retiring at the end of the season. Strange - I thought for sure he called it quits after last season.

  5. Nice work, guys. My team of platoons can't wait to light up C.C.

    Torto...before you crazily think about sending Bartlett to the minors, talk to me. I like that guy...

  6. I was being facetious about Bartlett (for now), just highly critical of his inability to get on base in my first series, despite his 0.379 OBP. A garbage time HR doesn't count for much in my book. But stay tuned, there is always a possibility of trade.
