WEEK # 1 GAME # 1  CONCORD GRAPE at GILEAD GUNSLINGERS

Things started out well in game 1 as Gilead got 3 runs in the bottom of the 1st highlighted by a 2 RBI double from highly touted rookie Vlad Guerrero Jr. Starting pitcher Jake Junis was unable to hold the lead and gave up 3 runs in the 6th inning to tie the game 3-3. Stayed that way until bottom of the 9th. Harold Ramirez lead off with a single and Billy Hamilton came in to pinch run and immediately stole 2nd. Jason Kipnis layed down a sacrifice bunt which was thrown away by Concord 3B Austin hedges allowing Hamilton to score the winning run. Gilead wins 4-3 with all 4 runs unearned. 

 

After their very first win it was all down hill from there for Gilead as they drop the next 2 games 4-2 and 5-4 respectively. The Gunslingers could not catch any breaks and the dice just didn't roll their way as they missed on 3 separate HR 1-16 chances in the final 2 games.

Bright spot was prized rookie Vlad Jr. going 4 for 8 with 2 doubles and a HR and 3 RBIs.

WEEK # 1 GAME # 1   ROCKY MOUNTAIN OYSTERS vs NAR SHADDAA MADALORIANS

My Wife asked me to watch TV today. I told her it is opening day. She understood!

Rocky Mountain travels to Nar Shaddaa for game 1 of the season. Verlander vs Houser.

Rocky Mountain jumps on Verlander for 3 in the first. Single runs in the 3rd and 4th and Rocky is up 5-0.

Marcus Semien hits the first HR of the season to make it 5-1. The Oysters scrap a run across in the 8th to extend the lead.

The Oysters forget to bring their gloves out for the bottom of the 8th. 2 errors end up making it 6-3. In the bottom of the 9th down by 3 the Mandalorians come back. Lane Thomas hits a pinch hit 2 run HR. Then Giancarlo Stanton hits a pinch hit triple but it is modified into a double... but he comes home anyways on a CFx as the centerfielder Springer just can't get to the ball and the game is tied.

Then in a battle of the bullpens... nothing until the bottom of the 14th. Jake Rogers who is the backup catcher hits a single. One out later, Ronald Acuna hits a double into the gap.  It's 1-9  to send the "fleet footed" Rogers. Nar Shaddaa goes for it and gets a 7 (gee wiz, the Las Vegas Pit Boss knows "roll 'em"... and knows when to "fold 'em") comes up to send the crowd into a frenzy.

Nar Shaddaa wins it with a 7-6 final. 161 more games to go........

Kenta Maeda (1-1) thrilled the fans at Battle Grounds as he crafted a no-hit masterpiece against the McHenry County Cybermen.  The Richmond Banshees won by a final score of 7 to 0.

Maeda was cheered on with every out from the 7th inning onward.  The adrenaline had to be just pumping through his veins.  The atmosphere was electric out there in Battle Grounds tonight! He walked 3 McHenry County batters. 

                                                            

The tension was mounting with every inning after the 6th.  Maeda appeared oblivious himself to the mounting history until two were out in the 9th.  Only then, did he allow himself one deep sigh and a slow trip around the mound.  Richmond rapped out 11 hits for the night.
