Nick beats Mario, 2-1. Many records, good for me - bad for Mario, were set! Very memorable series.
Future HOFer Jim Thome continued his race for the 2011 PTPVP, launching THREE homers (ties all-time record) and driving in six runs. The stud veteran also added a double, just for good measure. The newly acquired Drinky Cabrera hit a two-run homer and collected three hits. Ian Kinsler went yard as well. With his offense launching bombs all over Seattle, Ricky Romero settled in, tossing a complete game three-hit shutout. In a spot start for Mar, Brandon League becomes the first ever "LONG" to throw a COMPLETE GAME.

This one will be remembered for years! Nick's team puts up 29 runs, on 29 hits, against Mario. The stats are just silly. Mike Napoli hit two grand slams and breaks the all time record for RBI in a game (with nine)! The Birther Luke Scott hit two homers and drove in six. Jose Bautista had four hits, including a homer, and five RBI. Ian Kinsler had five hits; Drinky Cabrera had four hits. C.C. Sabathia was lit up and earns the loss, but Boone Logan will go down in PTP-infamy surrendering 17 EARNED RUNS in ONE INNING of work. Yuck. My team had 11 straight hits at one point and 16 hits in an inning.

After hitting ten homers and scoring 39 runs in the first two games (both records), my team partied their damn asses off on Saturday night at Pioneer Square in the Emerald City. Did you think they wouldn't? Anyway...my hungover squad managed just two hits vs Carl Pavano during the Sunday matinee (both from Wilson Betemit, who has found god and doesn't drink). Pavano tossed a complete game, striking out seven. Big Papi hit a homer and a double, while Shin Soo Choo added a hit and three runs. Juan Pierre also stole home for Mario.
