The Reds and Nats went 7….The Nationals fell back 3-1, but in Giant-like fashion came roaring back…They had to score a run in the 10th inning of game 6 to force game 7, and in an “S” aSSault, Strasburg, Storen, and Street combined to hold the Reds to 2 runs while Solano had 3 RBI…Gio Gonzales had a .52 ERA in 2 starts…Pujols hit .308…Longoria had 3 HR for the Reds, leading all LCS batters…Incredibly, Bronson Arroyo pitched a no-hitter in game 4…he needed a run in the 9th to secure the victory.
Congrats to Raphael, who had a truly great season. He’s been in positive WOR every season he’s been in the league but one, and this is his inagural run in the playoffs.
Texas and the Angels have been beating each other up all season, but the late season momentum the Angels built up seemed to carry to the playoffs…After getting pummeled 10-2 in game 1, the Angels swept 4 straight…RA Dickey closed out game 7 with a 126-pitch effort, although the difference was 2 unearned runs..Kendrick hit .381…Napoli hit 2 HR..Hamilton hit 2 HR but only .150…Jean Segura, who the actual Angels traded by Greg Achen did not, hit .316.
What can you say about Rick Wynne? His 1,888 wins are an ASFBL record, he has the best lifetime ASFBL win percentage of anyone to play more than a single season, his +322 WOR all-time are double the next closest, and that’s Leo, which is saying something. Another great year, Rick.
We’ll run the world series games as soon as we hear from Andy and Greg that their lineups are in.,
