Carlo breaks out the brooms
Here's the series recap I was provided:
Game one. Lincecum vs. Delarosa. Both got off to shaky starts. Colby Rasmus got things started with a two-run jack in the top of the first. Buster Posey answered with a two-run bomb in the bottom of the frame. A shaky Lincecum was chased after completing only three innings and allowing six earned runs. Not one to be outdone, Delarosa lost it in the bottom of the third, walking three and allowing four hits and seven earned runs. That lead would hold. Aubrey Huff added a solo shot in the fifth and ended a double short of the cycle. Buster Posey goes 5 for 5. Carlo wins 12-7
Game two: Kershaw Vs. Cain. Kershaw was largely ineffective allowing four runs in six innings, including a bomb in the third by the hot swinging Dan Uggula. At the plate, however, he delivered a three-run bases clearing double in the second. Cain settled in for a few innings, but Fish fell victim to the big inning again. Matt Cain was torched for seven runs in the sixth inning allowing four hits and three walks. Tulowitzki's three-run shot was the highlight of the frame. Fish chipped away in the seventh with Beltran doubling in two runs, but it just wasn't enough. Carlo wins 12-7 again.
Game three: Arroyo vs. Latos. Early scoring was the theme of the series. Fish raced out to a two-run lead in the top of the first as Rasmus and Edmonds drive in runs. Aubry Huff launched a three-run shot in the bottom of the first to pull Carlo back on top. Arroyo lasted only four innings and was chased after back-to-back doubles by Chipper and Pujols put fish on top 5-3. Latos was lights out, striking out 14 in seven innings. With a two-run lead in the bottom of the ninth, Billy Wagner was called upon to end the game. He allowed a leadoff double to Fukadome. Neil Walker plated him with a single bringing, Carlo within a run. Wagner struck out the next two batters. With two down, Tulo smashed a sinking liner to center. Jim Edmonds and his creaky knees were unable to make the grab, instead allowing the ball to get by for a game-ending triple. Final Score: Carlo 6, Fish 5.
A demoralizing sweep.
Standings and stats updated (Fish, get me yours when you can). Look for a recap of Fish and my series coming soon...
