We played this series a month ago, and I've been irritated about it ever since.
Game 1- Strasburg was injured for this game and Carlos Rodon stepped in to fill the void, but got his ass handed to him as the Overbays scored in four consecutive innings to put up seven runs. Estrada was more than good enough to hold down the pathetic WIB offense. Overbays 7-1
Game 2- Thankfully, WIB got back to their regular rotation in this game with Syndergaard pitching vs. Steven Wright. Thor was cruising through three innings when the infamous triple six came up and before you knew it, he was gone for the game and the next series. Seriously?! Anyway, after Noah left the game, the Overbays scored two runs in the 3rd, three in the 4th and for good measure added eight more runs in the final two innings. WIB scored a few, but the math didn't come close to working out. Overbays 13-4
Game 3- Chris Archer against wrongfully robbed Cy Young runner-up Justin Verlander, according to Kate Upton at least, and when she speaks, I listen. Finally, some justice occurs in the third inning when Verlander has to leave the game with whatever ailment the little +@$*# felt. Sadly, there were no little leaguers in the bullpen for the WIB to take advantage of, so instead they just watched as the Overbays circled the bases five times. Overbays 5-0
Game 4- King Felix and Jon Lester faced off in a matchup of guys who have been around forever, but the old guy has never looked better and the young guy looks ancient these days. That trend continued in this affair, with the Overbays scoring in each of the first four innings and WIB was not able to mount any sort of offense at all for the second straight game. Overbays 7-0
Game 5- Kevin Gausman and Tyler Chatwood. Chris Davis hit a two run homer. This game is %*!!. I hate it and the Overbays. I'm coming to the cottage for titties and test tube shooters it seems. Overbays 4-2
There were really no close games at all in this series and WIB had a stretch of 23 scorless innings to drive home that point. At least the Overbays acquired Kerhsaw immediately after the series and I didn't have to face the indignity of being shutout in another game
Syndergaard will be staying in Brampton for the upcoming series vs. the Sluggers.
