Yes it was, pitching seemed to rule on this opening day of games.  Two shutouts and the most runs scored by a team was 4.  Very tight games to start the tournament.

MILWAUKEE -- The Oakland Athletics struck early Thursday afternoon at Miller Park and the solid pitching of veteran right-hander Bartolo Colon was enough to give them a 4-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins in first round action.  Colon went eight innings for the win allowing eight hits and two runs but did not yield a free pass to the Twins.  Coco Crisp led off the first inning with a double and scored on a John Jaso single off Minnesota starter Carl Pavano.  Two outs later, Josh Donaldson would lace a single to left to score Yoenis Cespedes.  The A's scored again in the fourth on a Eric Sogard single which scored Seth Smith who had doubled one batter earlier.  The lead expanded to four runs the next inning when Donaldson again came through with two outs, blasting a solo homerun to left field.  The score stayed that way until the seventh when the Twins finally got on the scoreboard courtesy of J.J. Hardy who crushed a 3-2 hanger off Colon into the seats to score himself and Jason Kubel and cut the deficit in half.  Colon would settle down the following inning and retire the Twins in order.  Grant Balfour came on in the ninth to throw a perfect inning for the save and secure the victory.  The A's will play the winner of the Washington Nationals and Kansas City Royals while the Twins will play the loser of that game.  Both games will be played on Sunday.

SEATTLE -- In the biggest upset we will see in this first round as the top two seeds have bye's, the number three seed Los Angeles Angels were taken down handily 5-0 by the lowest seed in the tournament, the Toronto Blue Jays.  Unfortunately for the Angels, most teams seeded in the bottom of a tournament don't have Roy Halladay pitching for them.  Halladay was completely dominate as he had the Angels hitters off balance all day.  Halladay went the distance allowing just five hits and one walk while striking out five.  Only three Angels baserunners reached scoring position all day and none made it to third base.  The Blue Jays got on the board in the second on a Rod Barajas single to score Adam Lind.  Toronto then got another run the following inning on a Vernon Wells sac fly to score Marco Scutaro.  Lyle Overbay double the lead in the sixth with a two-out, two-run homerun off starter Ervin Santana.  The sixth would be Santana's final inning of work.  The Blue Jays added an insurance run in the eighth on a Wells single to score Alex Rios.  The Atlanta Braves and Pittsburgh Pirates square off later tonight with the winner facing the Blue Jays Sunday night.  The loser will take on the Angels earlier in the afternoon.

MILWAUKEE -- The day of high seeds going down continues in Milwaukee.  Just as the three seed was knocked out earlier today, the fourth seeded Washington Nationals were taken down by the #29 seed Kansas City Royals 4-1 at Miller Park.  Royals veteran Billy Butler was huge knocking in all four runs on the day while Eric Hosmer went 5-5.  Hosmer laced a one-out single in the first and then moved to third on two wild pitches from Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez.  Ahead in the count, Butler then laced a single to score Hosmer and produce the games first run.  Butler came through with another RBI two innings later on a sacrifice fly to score Alex Gordon.  In the fifth, Butler sent a 2-0 Gonzalez pitch into the bleachers to again score Hosmer ahead of him and give Kansas City a 4-0 lead.  Washington finally got on the board in the bottom half of the inning on a Roger Bernadina solo homer.  That homerun was the only run Royals starter James Shields would allow in his seven inning of work while also giving up just four hits on the day.  The Nationals never really threatened over the final four innings and went down quietly.  The Royals will come back Sunday night to face the A's while the Nationals will square off against the Twins Sunday afternoon in the loser's bracket.

Pod 5--#19 2013 Pittsburgh Pirates v. #14 2013 Atlanta Braves (Safeco Field)
Permalink  
 


SEATTLE -- Thursday night at Safeco Field brought us a matchup of two teams NL playoff teams whom both lost in the Divisional series in 2013.  The two playoff teams didn't dissappoint as we were given arguably the most exciting finish of the tournament thus far.  The Atlanta Braves came from behind in the ninth inning to tie the game off Pirates closer Jason Grilli and then won it in the 10th.  The Pirates early on looked they were going to have no trouble with the Braves.  They got on the board in the first thanks to a Justin Upton flyball flub with two outs to score the games first run.  Pittsburgh then pushed the lead to three thanks to an Andrew McCutchen two-run opposite field blast off Braves starter Mike Minor.  Gerald Laird led off the bottom of third with a solo homerun off A.J. Burnett to cut the deficit to 3-1.  The Braves chipped another run off the lead with a second solo homerun, this one off the bat of Jason Heyward to close the gap to 3-2.  The score stayed that way until the ninth when Grilli came on to close it down for Pittsburgh.  Freddie Freeman led off the inning with a single and then one out later moved to third on a Chris Johnson double.  Dan Uggla then came through with a clutch single to tie the game before Grilli got Laird to ground into a double play and send the game to extra frames.  The Pirates put two men on with two outs in the top of the 10th but Braves closer Greg Kimbrel was able to strikeout Gaby Sanchez to end the inning.  Grilli stayed on in the bottom of the inning and retired the first two batters easily with a strikeout and foulout.  Heyward came up next and devoured a 2-2 pitch from Grilli sending it high into the right field bleachers for a game-winning, walk-off homerun.  The Braves will come back Sunday night to face the Blue Jays while the Pirates will battle the Angels in the afternoon in an elimination game.

This is a really cool project.  Cheering for the Phils.  I would recommend Worley over Oswalt.  Worley was amazing that year.  If they can score a run, they are a dangerous team.  Looking forward to day 3 action.

Great game by Shields and the Royals in an upset win!  Way to go Kansas City!  Make some noise in this tourney!

 

I also second TT's suggestion.  Worley was terrific that year.  I would also go with Worley over Oswalt for the fourth starter and use Roy out of the pen for a long man reliever.   

In that same replay I noted earlier, Worley went 10-6 with a 4.33 ERA in 19 starts and a 1.2 WHIP vice Oswalt whose ERA encroached 5.00 in 22 starts. 

 

Go Phillies!

Best,

-kb

Good games indeed Strat.  Always nice to see some upsets go down in tourney play.

KB & Tall -- Thanks for following along guys.  Shields has been money, pitching two teams to first round W's.  As for the Phils, I really thing they're only going to need to throw their top three guys the way I have this set up.  Therefore, I think both Worley and Oswalt will be coming out of the pen if needed.  That Phillies team is probably the favorite if I had to pick one.  Their top three pitchers are just so tough.  Like you said TT, if they can score a run, they're dangerous.

I will have some Day 3 results posted later afternoon/early evening when I get home.

PITTSBURGH -- Chris Tillman and Yovani Gallardo treated fans in Pittsburgh to an exceptional pitching matchup on Friday afternoon at PNC Park.  The two starters dueled back and forth with Tillman going nine innings and allowing just three hits while striking out sixth while Gallardo worked eight innings allowing just three hits as well to go with eight punch outs.  In the end it took 11 innings and one unearned run for a winner to be declared as the Milwaukee Brewers squeaked into the second round 1-0 over the Baltimore Orioles.  Through nine innings only three total runners had reached scoring position, all with two outs, and not one man had touched third base.  Baltimore finally threatened in the 11th when J.J. Hardy led off with a double to start the inning and the Orioles then loaded the bases as Nick Markakis and Matt Wieters sandwiched walks around an Adam Jones flyout against Brewers closer John Axford.  After a visit to the mound, Axford reared back and struck out both Chris Davis and Wilson Betemit to end the threat and preserve the shutout.  Darren O'Day retired the first batter for Milwaukee in the bottom of the inning.  Yuniesky Betancourt came up next and legged out an infield chopper and then went to second when Baltimore third baseman Betemit threw the ball away for an error.  O'Day struck out Jonathan Lucroy to bring up Jerry Hairston with two outs.  Hairston came through with a two-out, walk off single to right center to bring home Betancourt and send Milwaukee into the second round.  Milwaukee moves on to play the winner of of the Red Sox-Astros game on Sunday while Baltimore will take on the loser.

SAN DIEGO -- C.C. Sabathia was not going to let his team lose.  He had one bad inning, but outside of that he gutted and fought his way through a whopping 11 innings of work before being lifted when the game went into the 12th inning.  Sabathia struck out 12 Colorado hitters on the day.  His counterpart, Ubaldo Jimenez wasn't bad in his own right, giving up three runs in the first inning and then blanking the Indians through his next seven innings on the mound.  Jimenez KO'd 10 Cleveland hitters through his eight innings.  The game went 13 innings, surrendered a tremendous amount of drama, and was arguably the most exciting game of the young tournament.  It didn't look like Jimenez was going to make it out the first inning as the first five Cleveland hitters reached base.  Grady Sizemore led off the game with a single and moved up a base on Asdrubal Cabrera's walk on four pitches.  Travis Hafner came up next and lined a single to bring home Sizemore and move Cabrera to third.  Victor Martinez followed and drew a 3-2 walk to load the bases for first baseman Ryan Garko.  Jimenez fell behind 3-1 to Garko and not wanting to walk in a run, threw a get me over fastball that was lasered down the left field line for a double which brought home Caberera and Hafner and put two runners in scoring position with still nobody out.  After a visit to the mound, Jimenez got both Jhonny Peralta and Kenny Lofton to fly out, neither deep enough for Martinez to tag and then got Trot Nixon to ground out to end the inning.  Cleveland led 3-0 after one, but the way things started, Colorado was elated it wasn't more.  Troy Tulowitzki led off the top of the second with a double, but was gunned down at home plate by Sizemore after Brad Hawpe lined a single up the middle to center.  The score stayed that way until the fifth when Hawpe led off with a single and moved up a base when Garrett Atkins was plunked by Sabathia.  Ryan Spilborghs followed with a double to score Hawpe and move Atkins to third.  With the infield back to avoid a big inning Chris Iannetta grounded out to score Atkins and move Spilborghs up to third with one out.  Seth Smith came up next and lifted a sacrifice fly to left center to bring home the tying run.  The Indians put two runners on in the ninth but Rafael Betancourt got Casey Blake to bounce into an inning ending double play to send our second game of the day into extra innings.  The Indians put runners on first and second again the 10th but this time Betancourt got Martinez to roll into a double play ending another Indians threat.  The Rockies threatened in the 12th on a one-out double from Iannetta but Rafael Betancourt (yes, he pitched in relief for both teams) struck out Smith and Dexter Fowler to end the inning.  Blake then doubled to start the bottom of the 12th but Huston Street came on to retire the side and we moved to the 13th.  In the bottom of the 13th Street retired the first two batters of the inning but then issued back-to-back walk to both Peralta and Lofton.  Franklin Gutierrez then came through with a game-winning single to give Cleveland a 4-3 first round victory.  With the win, Cleveland moves on to face the winner of the St. Louis Cardinals and Florida Marlins on Monday night while Colorado will face the loser Monday afternoon.

PITTSBURGH -- The St. Louis Cardinals jumped on Roy Oswalt and the Houston Astros early and while Houston tried to fight back, they didn't have enough firepower to take down the former World Series Champion.  Boston roughed up Oswalt for eight runs in just 3 2/3 innings pitched while also tagging him for 11 hits and four walks.  Jacob Ellsbury and Shane Victorino led off the game with singles and Ellsbury came home on a Dustin Pedroia sacrifice fly.  David Ortiz followed with a single but Oswalt worked out of the jam to allow just one run.  The Red Sox came right back in the second with a one-out solo homerun off the bat of shortstop Stephen Drew to give them a two run advantage.  The Red Sox really turned it on in the fourth with eight of nine men reaching base against Oswalt.  Drew and Will Middlebrooks led off the inning with walks as Oswalt threw eight straight balls.  Ellsbury singled to the load the bases and then Victorino followed with a single to score Drew as the bases remained loaded.  Pedroia followed with another walk to bring home Middlebrooks and keep the bases loaded with still nobody out.  Oswalt seemed like he may get out of it as he got Ortiz to hit into a 5-2-3 double play but his control problems continued as he walked Mike Napoli to load the bases back up.  Daniel Nava came up next and laced a two-out single to score two runs and Jarrod Saltalamacchia followed with a double driving in two more to give Boston an 8-0 lead before Chris Sampson came on to get Houston out of the inning.  Houston chipped away for four runs (three unearned) over the next two innings to cut the deficit in half, but that was all they could muster.  Houston never really threatened again and Boston took the first round matchup 8-4.  Boston moves on to face Milwaukee in a winner's bracket game on Sunday night while Houston squares off against Baltimore Sunday afternoon on the loser's side.

SAN DIEGO -- The final game of the night continued the day's trend of extra inning games as we saw our third game out of four go to extra frames.  Florida may have been the #27 seed but nobody told them that as they jumped out with five runs in the top of the first off Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright.  Chris Coghlan singled to start things off and then moved to second when Wainwright beaned Nick Johnson with a curve ball that got away from him.  Hanley Ramirez stepped up next and lined a single to bring home Coghlan and move Johnson up to third putting runners at the corners.  Cleanup hitter Jorge Cantu followed and line a single of his own to left to bring home Johnson and move Ramirez up a base to second.  Jeremy Hermida was next up and skied a 2-0 pitch high into the night for a three-run homer to right field putting Florida up 5-0.  St. Louis was not going to go away easy and on this day, neither team's starter fared well.  Both Wainwright and Marlins starter Josh Johnson allowed six runs apiece through six innings of work.  St. Louis started off the bottom of the second with a leadoff homerun off the bat of Allen Craig followed by followed by a single and double from Yadier Molina and Matt Adams to put two runners in scoring position with nobody out.  Johnson managed to retired the next two Cardinal hitters but shortstop Pete Kozma (.217 BA) came through with a clutch two-run single to cut the lead to 5-3.  Florida came back the next inning on a two-out single from John Baker to score Cantu who had doubled to lead off the inning pushing the lead up to three.  The Cardinals struck back in the fourth on a leadoff homerun by Adams, but Johnson managed to pitch out of a major jam after allowing a triple to David Freese right after the homer.  Johnson struck out Jon Jay and Kozma (two of his nine K's on the day) before getting Matt Carpenter to bounce out.  In the sixth, the Cardinals alternated an Adams walk and Jay single with two strikeouts.  The runners then both moved into scoring position on a Johnson wild pitch and scored to tie the game on a Carpenter single.  The Marlins had the top of the order to start the seventh and put runners on the corners on a Coghlan walk and Johnson single but reliever Kevin Siegrist retired the heart of the lineup in order without allowing a run to score.  The Marlins loaded the bases in the 11th but Cardinals closer Edward Mojica got Hermida to pop out to end the inning.  The game moved to the 12th with Baker connecting with a pitch from Mojica for a solo homerun to put Florida ahead 7-6.  Kiko Calero got Carlos Beltran to ground out to the start the inning but gave up an single to Matt Holliday before being relieved by Leo Nunez.  Craig followed with a single but Nunez got Molina to bounce into a game ending double play to give Florida the upset victory.  We have now see the #3, #4, and #6 ranked teams go down over the last two days.  With the upset victory, Florida moves on to face Cleveland on Monday night while St. Louis will matchup with Colorado in the afternoon.
