Pod 7--#16 2009 Los Angeles Dodgers v. #1 2009 New York Yankees (Camden Yards)
Permalink  
 


BALTIMORE -- The New York Yankees showed why they are the number one seed in this tournament, in large part thanks to the effort of starting pitcher C.C. Sabathia.  Sabathia was simply dominant Monday night hurling a complete game shutout while walking none, giving up just three hits, and striking out seven.  The Dodgers had just one hit and two base runners total over the final seven innings.  Only two men were in scoring position for the entire game to give you an idea of Sabathia's dominance on this day.  The Yankees got to Clayton Kershaw in the first inning as Derek Jeter led off with a walk and moved to third on Johnny Damon's double down the right field line.  One batter later Alex Rodriguez lines a hard single to right scoring Jeter but Damon was cut down at the plate on a strong throw from Andre Ethier.  That one run would ultimately be all the Dodgers needed.  They tacked on two more in the fifth on an RBI single from Damon to score Robinson Cano and later on a three-run double from Jorge Posada to score Damon, Mark Teixera, and Rodriguez to put the game completely out of reach at 5-0.  With the win, the Yankees move on to face the 2012 Cincinnati Reds on Friday night at Fenway Park in Boston.  The Dodgers will face their NL West division rival Arizona Diamondbacks Friday afternoon at AT&T Park in San Francisco.

Pod 6--#27 2009 Florida Marlins v. #11 2007 Cleveland Indians (Petco Park)
Permalink  
 


SAN DIEGO -- The final game of the first week of the tournament treated us to a nightcap pitcher's duel for the second day in a row.  In the end, Fausto Carmona narrowly outdueled Ricky Nolasco giving the Cleveland Indians a 2-1 victory over the Florida Marlins.  The Marlins got on the board first on a second inning solo bomb off the bat of second baseman Dan Uggla but the Indians were quick to counter tying the game at one apiece an inning later.  The third could have been much worse for the Marlins and Nolasco as Casey Blake led off the inning with a double which was then followed by a pair of walks to Grady Sizemore and Asdrubal Cabrera to load the bases with nobody out.  Nolasco was able to get Travis Hafner to line out and then Victor Martinez lifted a fly ball to center scoring Blake and tying the game.  The Indians loaded the bases but were unable to push a second run across in the inning.  Neither team threatened much until the eighth inning.  Ross Gload led off the top half with a walk but Carmona got Chris Coghlan to bounce into a 4-6-3 double play.  Nick Johnson came to bat next drawing a walk and then moved into scoring position on a Hanley Ramirez single.  This would be all for Carmona as Rafael Betancourt was summoned from the pen.  Betancourt was able to get Jorge Cantu to fly out ending the inning.  In the bottom of the inning Nolasco quickly retired the first two batters but left a curve ball over too much of the plate on a 2-2 count and watched Ryan Garko hit it high and long into the left field bleachers to put the Tribe up 2-1.  Closer Joe Borowski came on in the ninth and retired the side in order with two strikeouts to preserve the victory.  With the win the Indians move along in the winner's bracket to face the 2008 Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night at AT&T Park in San Francisco.  The loss sends the Marlins into the loser's bracket where they will square off against the 2008 Houston Astros on Thursday night at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.

It was the best starting pitching performance of the first round.  Sabathia alos pitched a whale of a game for the 2007 Indians giving up 3 runs in 11 innings while striking out 12 earlier in the tournament.

Great game between Halladay and Fister.  Not surprised Chooch got the game winner on a walk.  He has a surprisingly good on base percentage year to year, but in 2011 was one of his better offensive years.

That was a really good Phillies team.  Surprised that team didn't win the World Series that year with the pitching they had, not to mention a good lineup.  The lineup wasn't as good as I thought but was good enough to score 3-5 runs, which was usually enough with the rotation.

BOSTON -- In a rematch of their 2008 American League Divisional Playoff Series, the Tampa Bay Rays eliminated the Chicago White Sox just as they did back in October of that year.  Mark Buehrle did his best to keep the Sox alive, but James Shields was just a little bit better in helping lead Tampa Bay to a 2-1 victory ending Chicago's tournament.  Shields allowed just one run and six hits over eight and one-third innings of work while walking none.  He only struck out one batter on the day but that wasn't indicative of the way he was throwing the ball.  Shields was in a groove and worked fast against the equally as fast Buehrle in a game that took just over two hours.  For his part, the veteran White Sox hurler allowed just two runs over seven and one-third innings of work himself.  Buehrle's big mistake of the game came in the first inning when he uncorked a two-out wild pitch to Evan Longoria allowing B.J. Upton to score from third for the game's first run.  Shields retired the first two batters in the third but Alexei Ramirez roped a double and came into score on Orlando Cabrera's two-out single to tie the game at one apiece.  The deciding run came in the fourth when Ben Zobrist was able to beat out what would have been an inning ending double play to set up runners on the corners with two outs.  Jason Bartlett came up next and lined a single to left to score Longoria.  Chicago threatened a bit in the ninth as A.J. Pierzynski laced a one-out double down the right field line to put the tying run in scoring position.  This triggered a move to the bullpen and Dan Wheeler came out to close the game for Shields.  Wheeler got Carlon Quentin to ground out and then struck out Jermaine Dye to end the game.  With the win, the Rays move on to face the winner of the 2008 Chicago Cubs and the 2012 San Francisco Giants which takes place at 6:00 tonight here at Fenway Park.  In a battle of lefties, Ted Lilly of the Cubs squares off against Madison Bumgarner for the Giants.  The two winners will meet Friday here in Boston.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Division rivals squared off Wednesday afternoon in a park both are familiar with, as the Los Angeles Dodgers moved on in tournament play with a 2-0 elimination game win over the Arizona Diamondback at AT&T Park, the home of another division rival, the San Francisco Giants.  Josh Collmenter pitched well for Arizona but on this afternoon, it was the Randy Wolf show as he came up big in a huge spot for the Dodgers.  Wolf pitched eight innings of four-hit, shutout baseball, while walking just one man and striking out five.  The Diamondbacks had only one runner in scoring position all game and that wasn't until the seventh inning.  Los Angeles got on the board in the first inning with leadoff man Rafael Furcal starting things off with a double and scoring one batter later on a Manny Ramirez single for a 1-0 lead.  Ultimately, this would be all the Dodgers would need but they did add an insurance run in the eighth inning on a two-out single from Furcal to bring home Matt Kemp who had led off the inning with a double.  Wolf started the ninth but game up a leadoff single prompting a visit to the mound and a call to the pen as closer Jonathan Broxton came on for the save.  Broxton struck out the first man he faced and then got Gerardo Parra to roll into a game ending double play sending Los Angeles on in the tournament to face the winner of the 2013 Kansas City Royals and 2011 Texas Rangers in a game later tonight here in San Francisco.  The two winners will meet here at AT&T Park on Friday.

BOSTON -- The San Francisco Giants took an early 2-0 lead in this elimination game before the Chicago Cubs bats got hot and never looked back with the Cubs advancing on with an 8-5 victory Wednesday night in Boston.  Angle Pagan gave the game it's first run on a one-out homer over the Green Monster off Cubs starter Ted Lilly in the top of the 3rd inning.  Buster Posey followed suit an inning later to put San Francisco up by two, but the good news for Lilly and the Cubs was that they were both just solo homers.  Chicago answered back in the bottom of the inning off Giants starter Madison Bumgarner thanks to a pair of San Francisco errors to cut the lead in half.  The score stayed that way until the bottom of the fifth when Alfonso Soriano and Ryan Theriot led off with singles.  One out later both runners were in scoring position and scored on an Aramis Ramirez blast over the Green Monster down the left field line to give Chicago a 4-2 advantage.  The Giants cut the lead to one the next inning on their third solo home run of the game, this one again coming off the bat of Posey for his second round tripper of the evening.  The Cubs came back to score in their third straight inning on a clutch two-out single off the bat of Soriano to bring home Kosuke Fukudome and push Chicago's lead back to two.  The score stayed that way until the Cubs broke it open with three runs in the eighth to put the game out of reach.  The Giants managed two in the top of the ninth but couldn't get any closer as the Cubs out the game to move on in the double elimination tournament.  The Giants will be heading home while the Cubs will move on to play the 2008 Tampa Bay Rays Friday afternoon here at Fenway Park.  That game will likely see Ryan Dempster taking the ball for Chicago as faces off against Scott Kazmir for the Rays.

SAN FRANCISCO -- C.J. Wilson and the Texas Rangers were locked in a pitcher's duel for much of the game before Adrian Beltre delivered a big blast which disposed of the Kansas City Royals 4-1 on Wednesday night in San Francisco.  Wilson went seven strong innings of work while allowing just five hits and walking three while also striking out three.  The Rangers scored in the game's first inning as Josh Hamilton lifted a sacrifice fly to score Ian Kinsler off Royals starter James Shields.  Shields, who was magnificent allowing just one run over seven innings in a first round victory, pitched well but gave up one huge mistake in the sixth inning which cost him the game.  With the score still just 1-0, Elvis Andrus and Michael Young sandwiched singles around a Hamilton ground out to put runners on the corners with one out.  Beltre was on deck and strolled to the plate.  Shields tried to throw him a first pitch fast ball but Beltre made him pay lifting the ball high and deep into the Bay area sky to put the Royals in what would turn out to be an insurmountable four run hole.  For the game, Shields was touched for four runs and nine hits over six innings of work.  The Royals had just one base runner reach scoring position over the games first six innings but staged a rally in the seventh.  After Wilson retired the first batter on strikes Miguel Tejada reached on a single and then Alcides Escobar and Alex Gordon walked and was hit by a pitch to load the bases with one out.  Texas manager Ron Washington visited the mound but decided to stay with Wilson and his starter rewarded him by getting Eric Hosmer to roll into a 4-6-3 double play to end the inning.  The Royals loaded the bases again in the ninth, scoring one on a bases loaded walk, but ultimately left three men stranded to lose the game 4-1.  The Royals have now been eliminated from play while the Rangers will come back here Friday afternoon to face the 2009 Los Angeles Dodgers.

The top of that Cubs line-up had a great day. 

BTW, how do you decide at which ballparks the games will be played.

Agreed, 10-19 isn't too shabby. 

As for the stadiums, I set those up prior to the tournament. The first week there were seven pods each taking place in a different stadium. It's listed back on the first page. Then it shifted to two East pods (Fenway Park & Yankee Stadium) and two West pods (AT&T Park & Dodger Stadium) and finally it will finish with a Championshlip pod at Wrigley Field.

NEW YORK -- Pitching kept the game tight for much of the afternoon as neither team could break anything open through seven innings of play in this elimination game.  The two teams were knotted up at 1 run apiece through seven innings and it looked like the first team to get that elusive second run would win the game.  In the end, however, the Minnesota Twins pounced with four runs over the last two innings to advance on in the tournament with a 5-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves here Thursday afternoon at Yankee Stadium.  Brian Duensing and Mike Minor took the hill for their respective teams and both pitched well.  Minnesota also received four strong innings of work from its bullpen, most notably from Jesse Crain and Brian Fuentes who went two innings apiece while yielding no runs.  Minor was the tough luck loser allowing just two runs over seven and one-third innings of work.  The Twins got on the board first in the top of the fifth on a leadoff blast off the bat of outfielder Jason Kubel.  The Braves had a chance to do some real damage in the sixth inning as they loaded the bases to start inning off Duensing before he was relieved by Crain.  Crain almost got out of it as he coaxed Chris Johnson into a 5-2-3 double play but then uncorked a wild pitch to Brain McCann to bring home Justin Upton with the tying run.  Joe Mauer doubled home Denard Spahn in the top of the eighth to break the tie.  The Braves came right back in the eighth putting men on second and third with nobody out but Fuentes came on and struck out the side to get the Twins out of the jam and preserve the lead.  Minnesota broke the game wide open in the ninth on a three-run bomb off the bat of Danny Valencia to all but end any hopes Atlanta had of a comeback.  Fuentes retired them in order in the ninth to end their tournament.  The Twins move on to face the winner of the 2008 Houston Astros and 2009 Florida Marlins as those two teams will square off here tonight at six o'clock.  Minnesota and the winner of that game will square off Saturday afternoon here at Yankee Stadium.
