#PackADailyCircus #ootp - BLCS/WLCS Championship Rounds, Game 3
Good evening, ladies and gentlemen! We've had a couple nights off here in the PAD Circus Championship Series, so hopefully the teams are well-rested and ready for action!
When we left things, the Dominic FDNYs led the Blogger League 2-0 over the Texas PlayAtThePlates. Can Texas hold on and keep the FDNYs from jumping out to a 3-game lead? We'll find out in a moment.
Before we look at results, though, let's talk about the Wordpress League. The Florida Workmans grabbed a 2-game lead over the Ontario Kazis. So, much like Texas in the other series, the Kazis are hoping to put the kibosh on Florida.
So, let's see what happened in each series game, three innings at a time. In the BLCS, both teams were scoreless at the end of the first, but Texas knocked in a run in the bottom of the 2nd inning. At the end of three, Texas led 1-0. Meanwhile, in the WLCS, both teams remained scoreless through two innings, but each grabbed a run in the 3rd, resulting in a 1-1 tie after three.
Shifting back to the FDNYs/PlayAtThePlates game, Dominic scores a run in the top of the 5th and Texas answers with a run in the bottom of the sixth, taking lead 2-1 after six innings. Neither the Workmans nor the Kazis can muster up a run in the next three innings there, so they remain tied at one run apiece when the final out of the 6th inning is called.
The FDNYs cannot get a runner to cross the plate before the outs add up. They lose the game 2-1, though they maintain a 2-1 lead in the series. In the other game, Florida adds three runs in the 7th inning, leaving Ontario to play catch-up. They can't do it, however, and the Workmans now lead that series 3-0 over the Kazis.
