NLDS - Chinook/Outlaws
Bill Liming - November 03, 2018 07:21PM
Game 1: Outlaws management was worried about this series from the outset given the LHB heavy Chinook lineup, LHB leaning park in Forsyth, and Justin Verlander's weakness vs LHB. Verlander managed well enough through 5, exiting somewhat early in a 3-3 game in the 5th in a failed effort to squeeze another run across. Then, the wheels pretty much came off as the otherwise reliable Outlaws pen managed to give up 8 runs and hand an 11-4 victory to the Chinook and help Marcus Stroman's modestly shaky 5 IP hold up.

Game 2: Rich Hill strikes out 9 and gives up only 4 hits in 6 IP, but one of them is a 3-run Bergman HR. Outlaws pen gives up a 9th inning insurance run that proves to be important as they score once in the bottom half, but strand the tying run on 2nd despite having two outs to work with. Sonny Gray takes the win with 6 strong innings.

Game 3: With hopes fading, and on the road, Chase Anderson proves he was worth what the Outlaws paid for him with 6.2 innings of 5-H 8-K ball, and a pair of two run doubles in the 3rd off Chinook starter Aaron Nola are enough to power the Outlaws to a 6-2 win. The first of those doubles costs the Outlaws starting 2B Daniel Murphy for the rest of the series (and into a potential WS appearance), however. After the game he's placed on the DL and replaced on the roster by occasionally used backup Brandon Crawford.

Game 4: Zack Godley guts out 5 decent innings on short rest after a game 1 relief appearance, but things look grim heading into the 7th inning down 2-0. With 2 outs and 1 on, a Michael Taylor PH single leads to a Chinook pitching change. Kirby Yates then walks PH John Hicks before giving up a grand slam to Josh Donaldson. Yusmeiro Petit gives up a lead off HR in the bottom of the 9th to make things more interesting, but ultimately books the save and ties the series at 2 games.

Game 5: Putative ace Verlander back on the hill for the Outlaws gives up a 2-run HR to Conforto in the first inning which would prove to be enough to send the Outlaws back to Forsyth down 3-2. Dylan Bundy navigates around a bunch of baserunners for the win.

Game 6: With the Outlaws season on the line, Rich Hill and Jimmie Sherfy combine on 5-hit, 14-K shutout. Lorenzo Cain leads off the bottom of the 1st with what would prove to be the game-winning HR off losing pitcher Stroman. Matt Olson adds a couple late insurance runs with his first ever HR off a LHP (and his 3rd of the series).

Game 7: For the first 7 innings, the teams literally match each other run for run and out for out, with each side scoring 1 in the 2nd, 2 in the 5th, and 1 in the 6th. Both starters, Anderson and Gray, throw 5, and give way to shaky pens, with LHP Wandy Peralta throwing another gopher ball to Olson, and Deck McGuire giving up the matching run for the Chinook. With Pedro Strop on the mound to start the Chinook 8th, Gregorius grounds out, and the speedy Byron Buxton singles but is thrown out stealing. One out away from getting back on offense, the Chinook get a single from Max Kepler who's then plated by a Joe Panik double to take the lead before Jon Jay flies out to end it. The bottom half of the 8th goes poorly for the home team, who not only strand the tying run, but lose starting SS Chris Taylor to cap it off. With DJ Lemahieu at SS and Jose Pirela forced into action at 2B, the Outlaws manage to get a scoreless 9th out of Edwin Diaz, despite making their 10th error of the series. The bottom of the 9th starts with Kiermaier drawing a 9 pitch walk, followed up by a Hicks single. With Chinook closer Soria on to pitch, Jose Pirela bunts to avoid a potential DP, and manages to beat it out to load the bases. With the season on the line, Justin Smoak pinch hits for Lemahieu despite their being no one else to play SS, and also manages to beat out an infield single that ties the game. The next pitch from Soria eludes Grandal, and the Outlaws escape with a walk-off game 7 WP.

Outlaws have no idea who's playing the infield in the first couple games of the NLCS (will probably need to make at least one roster move prior to that series), but that's a better problem to have than waiting until next year.

Great writeup for a great series. Congrats to Outlaws. Chinnok were close enough to taste it ...

Terriers MP vs BDM

Not sure if I can H2H. Contact me if you think that's an option.

otherwise good luck.

If droning, McCullers needs to pitch game one and Wallker game six.

I've emailed twice. Are you not getting them?

I can play Wednesday night. Maybe Thursday, and Sunday.

Edit: Also Michael, I think your MP as posted has too many active players. If you want Walker activated to start G6, you need to have only 24 actives.

Marauders MP
ChrisC - November 08, 2018 09:54AM
Much belated -- sorry. Will see if there's a time to play H2H with the FireDogs, otherwise this is good for Greg to sim (or for a managerial sub to use if preferred).

BDM's MP, since H-to-H seems undoable.

SPs should be Paxton, Happ, deGrom, Gray.

Use lineups as follows:

vs Walker and Wacha, use #1 "vs RHP"
vs McCullers and McCarthy, use #4 "vs RHP Inverse"
vs Nova and Chacin, use #3 "vs RHP Extreme"
vs Ryu, use #2, "vs LHP"

Good luck!

I am sorry that I couldn't do H2H.

I believe my mp does have 24 active players and the injured Walker.

Good luck

Assuming that I only think I had MP right, here is one with 24 and injured Walker

thanks for all patience and help with sim.

good luck Arthur

No worries. Sometimes we just don't have time.

It's all up to Greg now!
Heroes-Breakers Results

Iron Horse Division champs Crescent Beach hosted wild card Higglytown in the American League Division Series. The series started in Wrigley Field as the home team Breakers thrilled their fans, erasing an early 5-0 deficit to take Game 1 8-6, and then shutting out the Heroes 4-0 behind Patrick Corbin in Game 2.

Things looked dire for Higglytown as the series moved to Camden Yards, but the home team rode early leads to 9-4 and 7-4 wins to even the series after four games. The Heroes broke open a tight Game 5 to win 6-3, sending the series back to Crescent Beach. Lefties Corbin and Robbie Ray matched goose eggs for four innings in Game 6 before Hero bats broke through for two in the fifth and seventh and held on to take the decisive Game 6 4-0.

It was a back-and-forth series all the way, and three of the games ended with the go-ahead run at the plate, making for dramatic finishes each time.
