> Game 1 had the game scoreless after 4 1/2 innings with Greinke and  
> Yarbrough
> controlling the other team.  Jay Bruce broke the scoreless tie with a 2 run
> homerun which was enough for BOW because Yarbrough and the BOW bullpen
> shutout MAD.
> Game 2 MAD started with a 2 run homerun against "Gopher" Yamamoto after the
> first two batters. BOW regained the lead as they scored 4 runs in 3rd  
> inning
> thanks to a Contreras 3 run home run. But Yamamoto gave up 2 runs in the  
> 4th
> inning with two outs and then two more in the fifth.  In the 6th BOW had
> runners on 2nd and 3rd with no outs but couldn't score.  In the 7th BOW had
> runners again on 2nd and 3rd bit with 2 outs and couldn't score.  In the  
> 8th
> it seemed like BOW was going to break it by getting 3 straight hits and
> scoring one run and runners on 2nd and 3rd with no outs but couldn't score
> with Iglesias been thrown out trying to tie game with a fly to cf. Iglesias
> didn't expect to be sent as a 3 and had a slow break. Corbin had the win.
> Game 3 BOW had their starting 2b STL Edman back after missing 3 DTD rolls.
> The starting pitchers were KC "Walk" Keller and TB Richards.  MAD again
> scored first thanks to Bellinger how made an error and gave up 2 unearned
> runs.  BOW fans weren't too happy with Cody since he was 0-9 in the 1st two
> games.  BOW scratched and got 1 run back in the top of the 2nd.  MAD added
> one more run in the 3rd with a Soto SB and a clutch hot by Carantini.
> Bellinger redeemed himself with a deep fly homeun in the 4th.  Edman broke
> the tie in the 5th after hitting a single and scoring on a Fletcher double.
> After that the bullpens took over and kept both teams scoreless.
> Game 4 was a MASSACRE and it was BOW's manager fault.  He had penciled
> Yarbrough to start on short rest but right before the game he decided on a
> hunch to start his 20 game winner NYN "Zipper" Wheeler.  What a mistake.
> Again after two batters MAD was ahead 2-0 thanks to a 2 run homer by Soto.
> BOW got 3 runs back in the 2nd thanks to a 2 run homer by Bruce against
> Greinke (seems like Bruce had his number).  MAD immediately came back and
> scored 3 runs thanks to a triple by BOS Bradley who seems to be getting on
> everytime.  Cody came back next inning with a solo homerun cutting to the
> deficit to 1 run but then all hell broke loose.  MAD scored 4 more runs in
> the 4th and then broke it open by scoring 4 more runs in the 5th.  The
> massacre ended with score 25-8 as BOW wanted to have their bullpen  
> available
> for the deciding game.  MAD suffered an injury when Carantini threw himself
> in the BOW dugout trying to catch foul popup but was injured and will be  
> out
> for the playoffs.  This injury seemed to bring alive the MAD's batter.
> Game 5 was classic ending for the two teams.
> MAD and BOW had split the regular season series and then split the first 4
> games.
> MAD took an early lead in the 1st inning and then it was a pitcher duel  
> with
> WAS Corbin getting out of jams leaving 6 runners on base after 4 1/3  
> innings.
> Finally in the 6th BOW scored one run with a walk and two singles with 2
> outs.
> Yarbrough was tiring and in the 7th inning MAD loaded the bases with 3
> singles and 1 out.  BOW brought in the only player they traded for PIT
> Vazquez who struck out the next four batters.  The duel continues until the
> 10th when Kahnle made an error and then gave up a Deep Fly Homerun to Soto.
> Kahnle fatigued in just that inning and Osuna had to come in and get the  
> 3rd
> out.
> Ohberg got 2 quick outs and then gave up a single, a walk and an infield
> single which fatigued Ohberg.  STL Webb came in to face CIN Votto and Ahmed
> after pitching in game 4 came in as a pinch hitter and got a park triple to
> win the game 4-3.
> This was a hard fought series which came to the very last pitch and this  
> year
> BOW has been getting clutch hits with 2 outs.
> BOW will see who MCM decides to play.
