VOLBEAT GHOST ARCHERS  at  KONA COAST COFFEE GROWERS

WEEK 3 - GAME # 3

Brandon Woodruff reeled off a total of 12 strikeouts as the Kona Coast Coffee Growers defeated the Volbeat Ghost Archers 1 to 0 at Coffee Grounds.

Woodruff (2-0) was simply too much for the Volbeat batters.  He didn't allow much, just 1 hit and 3 walks in 7 and 1/3 innings.  Kona Coast had only 3 hits for the night. 

Incredibly, Pete Fairbanks has ALREADY earned his 6th save.  Tyler Glasnow (0-1) was the "LOSER!!" Mike Volberding was asked about the performance of Woodruff, "He had his good stuff out there tonight.  The fans really get into it when the strikeouts start mounting up - and that seems to give him even more adrenalin." (Not sure if he is a "pusher", but rumor has it that he must be buying the adrenalin-stuff from Fairbanks).

FENWAY FAITHBUL  at  PUYALLUP SPARTANS

WEEK 4 - GAME # 2

George Kirby dominated striking out 10 Fenway batters as the Puyallup Spartans defeated the Fenway Faithful by the score of 2 to 0 at The Coliseum.

Kirby (1-1) subjugated the Fenway hitters.  He had "complete control" on the mound, allowing just 1 hit and no walks in 8 innings seeing his ERA drop from 2.08 to 1.29.

The pitchers took over after the 1st inning as neither team was able to score again. 

Paul Sewald was credited with his 2nd save.  Logan Webb(0-1) was the loser. He pitched 7 innings allowing 6 hits and 1 walk.

When asked about his strikeout total for the game, Kirby offered, "The fan's really got into it. It's really run to see our great fans pounding down the Budwiser as my strikeout totals kept growing!" It was a good thing that we didn't run out of the "Bud-Suds" tonight. I made sure I was going to keep our Beer concessioners busy on all the aisles of the Stands tonight. Fortunately, everyone had proper ID's with them... so I didn't have to worry about bailing out our rowdy fans. Everything turned out great! We got the WIN... and the fans had a great time!"

Richmond kept the scorekeepers busy in the 3rd inning which saw them plate 4 runs on 5 hits.

They almost ran out of baseballs at Coffee Grounds as Kona Coast Coffee Growers clobbered the Puyallup Spartans pitching staff, scoring 11 runs while Brandon Woodruff (4-0) and the Kona bullpen allowed ONLY 1-hit. Can you believe it??  ANOTHER 1-HITTER!!
 
              FOR PUYALLUP                              FOR KONA COAST!!
                                              
 
Kona Coast wasted no time and took the lead in the first inning as they scored 6 runs on 6 base hits. That scoring would be all that was needed.  A.J. Puk was perfect in the ninth giving him his 1st save on the season.
 
Austin Cox (2-1) was charged with the loss.  He pitched 2/3 of an inning and surrendered 5 hits and 1 walk.

GREENSBORO SMOKE at CHICAGO MOB
 
WEEK 6 - GAMES # 1 - # 2  and # 3

What in the Wide, Wide World of Sports is going on in Chicago? Mob sweeps Smoke with superb pitching.

 5/10 GRS  2  4  0   CHM  5  7  0   C.Sanchez (4-0) P.Lopez (2-2)
 5/11 GRS  0  4  0   CHM  4  5  0   J.Irvin (1-0)          K.Freeland (1-2)
 5/12 GRS  3  4  0   CHM  4  9  0   C.Rodon (1-0)     M.Lorenzen (1-2)

 

Game # 1: 11 K's from starter Christopher Sanchez in 6 innings and 3 hitless innings from the bullpen give The Mob an easy victory. Jorge Polanco and Candelario homer.

Game # 2: More great pitching from Chicago. 5 innings of 2-hit shutout ball from Jake Irvin and homers from Taylor and Andrus key the victory.

 

     

 Game # 3  On Fred Turtle Bobblehead Day, Carlos Rodon in his 2024 Mob debut pitches 5 shutout innings. Running out of gas in the 6th, the bullpen is not as sharp, allowing 3 runs in the inning. But Karinchak, McGough and Fernando Cruz stymie the Smoke for the rest of the game, giving the near sellout crowd home happy. Note - Rookie Joey Wiemer got his first hit of the season after starting off zero for 30. It was a BPSi 1-18, with a split roll of 18. Welcome to the ways of HAL, Mr. Wiemer.

Shohei Ohtani took a no-hitter into the 7th inning and Tyler Stephenson blasted a homerun and had 2 RBI at Harbour Park where the Mississippi Big Orange beat the Virginia Destoyers 10 to 1.
 
Ohtani(1-2) was indeed brilliant as he hand-cuffed the Virginia offense.  He was stingy on the mound, allowing just 1 hit and 3 walks in 8 innings reducing his ERA from 5.71 to 4.85.  The right-handed Ohtani had his no-hit bid broken up by Ryan O'Hearn who homered with nobody out in the 7th inning.

Mississippi had a total of 16 hits for the game. Clayton Kershaw(4-1) was the loser.  He allowed 14 hits and 6 walks in 6 innings.

WEEK # 8 – GAME # 2   11 INNINGS!

Oysters................  0 0 2  1 0 0  0 1 0  0 1 -  5 11  1
 

The Rocky Mountain Oysters nipped the Volbeat Ghost Archers in 11 innings 5 to 4 at Centennial Field in a hard-fought contest.
 
The score was knotted at 4 after nine innings.  Rocky Mountain won the game in the 11th inning.  After an out was recorded, Ryan Mountcastle smacked a single.  Sam Haggerty stepped into the batter's box, and he drew a walk. Jordan Westburg then drew a walk to load the bases.  George Springer came upand he delivered a one-base hit resulting in an exciting win for Rocky
Mountain and a raucous post-game celebration by the hometown fans.  Rocky Mountain out-hit Volbeat for the game, 11 hits to 6.  
 
Jay Jackson(1-0) was the winning Pitcher allowing no runs in 1 inning. Matt Brash(0-1) took the loss in relief.  He pitched 1/3 of an inning and surrendered 1 hit and no walks.

Oysters.............. 2 2 0  1 1 0  0 0 2  -  8   9  0
 
 
In what could be described as an ultimate “meltdown”, the Volbeat Ghost Archers came back to win one over the SHOCKED Rocky Mountain Oysters, 10 to 8.
 
Prior to the games, Manager Fleischman was reviewing his game plan, and was heard to say, “WHAT A MONSTER.” “How are we going to deal with Davis Schneider?” “Maybe we’ll walk him Intentionally every time he comes to the Plate.”
 
Well, the decision was to pitch to Schneider very carefully… not giving him anything too good to hit. But that plan was short-lived as Designated hitter Davis Schneider ripped 2 homeruns and had 4 RBI as Volbeat scored the winning runs in the top of the 9th inning when they scored 4 runs on 4 hits. 
 
The critical plate appearance was by Schneider who silenced the crowd when he smashed a two-run homer.  Rocky Mountain was not lacking for run support as they scored in 5 separate innings, yet victory eluded them as they seemed to forget that pitching is also needed to win ballgames.  
 
Felix Bautista (1-0) got the win allowing 2 runs in 2 innings. Cole Irvin(1-1) suffered the loss in relief.  He allowed 1 hit and 1 walk in 1 inning.

Brandon Nimmo had 4 hits and 2 RBI as the Seattle Pilots ballclub embarrassed the Linwood King Pins by the count of 14 to 2.
 
Seattle scored 7 runs in the 2nd inning when they had 8 base hits.  That scoring would be all that was needed.  Seattle bats were very productive in the 2nd inning which saw them plate 7 runs on 8 hits.  Overall Seattle out-hit Linwood 20 to 4.  
 
Freddy Peralta (3-3) was the winner allowing 1 run in 6 innings. Alek
Manoah (1-3) took the loss.  He allowed 7 hits and 2 walks in 1 and 2/3 innings.
