Good evening, folks! Sorry we have been away longer than anticipated, but the good news is we have a DOUBLE-HEADER to kick off the Tribecards PAD Circus Championship Series!
Tonight, we have the Blogger League Championship Series (BLCS) and the Wordpress League Championship Series (WLCS).
Featured in the Blogger League, we have the Texas PlayAtThePlates playing against the Dominic FDNYs in Game One action!
Over in the Wordpess League, we'll watch the Ontario Kazis take on the Florida Workmans.
Remember, we have TWO games tonight. As always, here is the link to the game logs:
In first game action, the Texas PlayAtThePlates scored THREE RUNS in the 1st inning! Things were looking bad for the FDNYs until the pulled in a run during the bottom of the 3rd. The PlayAtThePlates could not add any more points through the 6th inning, but in the bottom of the 6th, the FDNYs stepped up and knocked in 4 runs to take lead! Going into the 8th, Texas trailed by 2 runs. They managed to score a run in the 8th inning, but that's all they could muster and the FDNYs walk away with Game 1, winning 5-4.
Meanwhile, the Kazis also jumped out early, grabbing a run in the 2nd inning followed by 2 more in the 3rd! The Workmans would remain scoreless until the 5th inning, but they could only score 1 run. Going into the bottom of the 9th, the Workmans trailed 2-3 and things did not look good. But, they managed to knock in 2 runs to tie the game and force Game One into extra innings. Neither team scored in the 10th, and the Kazis ended the 11th still tied with Workmans . In the bottom of the 11th, though, Florida brought a runner home after a crazy balk and an error from the Kazis. the Workmans win it in 11, 4-3!!
After suffering a loss, could Texas tie things up against the Dominic FDNYs, or will the FDNYs jump out to a two-game lead? Let's see what happened... The game remained scoreless until the bottom of the 3rd when FDNYs scored a run. Two innings later, they added another run to the board while the PlayAtThePlates had yet to find home plate. The scored remained 2-0 through 8 innings. In the top of the ninth, Texas grabbed a single run, but could not find a way to tie the game. The FDNYs now lead the series 2 games to 0.
As we moved into the second game of the double-header, the Kazis had to be asking themselves what they could do to keep the Workmans from scoring. Unfortunately, they did not have the answers, giving up 5 runs in the first inning! The Workmans came in ready and fired up from their first game and they never looked back, adding a run in the 3rd, 2 runs in the 4th, and another run in the 5th. As the Kazis came up to bat in the top of the sixth inning, they found themselves trailing 9-0. And, that is where things stood for the rest of the game. Workmans win the game 9-0 and take a 2-game lead in the series.
Who will face each other in the World Series? So far, it looks pretty cut and dry. But, we have a long way to go before we crown the Blogger League and WordPress League champions. Stay tuned for more baseball action in the coming days!
