Good morning, PAD Circus fans! The OOTP game is on October 10, so I have a little catching up to do. We'll run the 10th's game now and later this afternoon, I will run the game scheduled for Oct 11.
We've already seen the Workmans secure their place for the next round of playoff action. Which team will move ahead today? I can tell you that one team does move on as the remaining four teams duke it out for the chance to play in the semi-finals!
You can tell things are getting tight because we really didn't have any blowouts in this morning's action. We had a 1-run, a 2-run, and a 3-run win today. The question, though, is which margin led to the winning team moving on to the semi-finals? And, of course, which team was it!?
Let's have a little fun with this, shall we?
In the Tribecards/PlayAtThePlates game, the PlayAtThePlates scored a run in 3rd inning, leading 1-0.
In the NachosGrandes/FDNYs game, the NachosGrandes took a 2-run lead in the 4th.
The Thorzuls grabbed 3 runs in the 1st inning, but the Kazis answered with 3 or their own in the 4th inning.
By the end of the 7th inning, here is what things looked like:
Texas lead Arkansas 2-0
NachosGrandes and FDNYs were tied at 2.
The Thorzuls led the Kazis 7-4.
NONE of the games went into extra innings.
How did things pan out? Let's take a look... After the break:
The Tribecards fail to score ANY runs, getting blanked by PlayAtThePlates 2-0. This puts Texas ahead of Arkansas, 3 games to 2! The Tribecards are absolutely stunned at their apparent collapse.
The FDNYs score a 9th inning run to take the game and the series away from the NachosGrandes. Congratulations FDNYs! Wow!
The Thorzuls keep the Kazis at bay, winning the game 8-5 and leading the series 3 games to 2.
That means we have one team from each sub league resting up for semi-final action! Who will move on? Who will go home? Will the Tribecards save themselves and tie the series, forcing a Game 7? Will the Kazis step up and keep the Thorzuls from claiming victory?
