Overall, a very tough, hard fought series by both teams.  There were just a
ton of rolls right on the cusp of ranges, and some key plays (and
not-plays) that made a difference.

*Game One*
SCS jumps out in the 2nd on a Lindor solo home run off Morton.  GTY comes
right back in the b:2 with a Merrifield solo shot, then a Bichette single,
scoring Bell, in the third to make it 2-1.   SCS loaded the bases with one
out in the 5th, but failed to score as Morton struck out Voit and Dozier to
end the inning.  GTY scored in b:5 as Marisnick was hit by a pitch and Bell
doubled him home.  The scoring stopped there as Morton went 6.2 then turned
it over to Kintzler, Britton, and Baez who pitched the final 2.1 allowing
only 1 base-runner.  *GTY 3, SCS 1.  W: Morton  L: Bieber  S: Baez*

*Game Two*
All the scoring in this one happened in the bottom of the first, as
Merrifield reached on a fielder's choice, scored on a Bell double, which
was followed by a Garver 2-run homer to make it 3-0 GTY.  Bauer, Gallegos,
Ottavino, and Leclerc shut GTY down after that, allowing only 2 more hits
and two walks.  GTY pitching was too strong though, as Paddack went 5.2
IP.  A weird 4th inning as Olson led off with a 2 base error, advancing to
third on a warning track show by Ramirez.  Dickerson then rolled a
potential E-6, but rollbot went Bichette's way as he fielded it cleanly
with Olson trying to score.  Bichette threw him out at the plate as
Dickerson moved to second.  Paddack got out unscathed 2 batters later.
GTY's pen came up big as Kintzler, Hand, Lugo, and Britton went 3.2
scoreless innings.  *GTY 3, SCS 0.  W: Paddack  L: Bauer  S: Britton*

*Game Three*
This one was pretty much all SCS as the bats came to life.  Teheran went
6.1 strong innings, allowing only 2 runs on 6 hits, the runs a result of a
LeMahieu single and Bell home run.  GTY loaded the bases with 1 out against
Smith in the 9th, but Smith struck out Ervin and Gallegos struck out Long
to end it.  SCS scored two in the 2nd on a Vogt RBI double and Pillar RBI
single, then Vogt jacked a solo shot and Alberto scored an unearned run off
hand in the 5th.  SCS finished their scoring in the 6th on a 2-run HR by
pinch-hitter Corey Dickerson.  Besides losing the game, GTY lost Lugo for 6
days with a post-game arm injury.  *SCS 6, GTY 2.  W: Teheran  L: Skaggs
S: Gallegos*

*Game Four*
An exciting game with lots of scoring as GTY jumped out big only to see the
lead dwindle.  SCS opened the scoring in the first with an Olson infield
single scoring Hiura.  GTY stormed back in the second, batting around and
getting an RBI single from Marisnick, an RBI single from LeMahieu, and a
3-run dinger from Bell.  GTY scored another run on another Marisnick RBI
single in the third to make the score 6-1, then gave one up in the bottom
half on an Olson RBI double.  Marisnick stayed hot in the 5th, blasting a
solo home run, only to see a pinch-hit 2-run homer off of Hand in the
bottom half to make it 7-4 GTY.  Rojas smacked a solo HR in the bottom of
the 6th making it 7-5 (Hand having faced 4 batters and giving up 2 HR).
Marisnick came through in the 7th again, hitting a sac fly to CF, scoring
Soler to make it 8-5.  There the scoring would stay, as Kintler got the
third out of the inning, then Baez pitched into the 9th, at which point
Glasnow came in for his only appearance of the series to get the last two
outs and the save.  *GTY 8, SCS 5.  W: Morton  L: Bieber  S: Glasnow*
