    A Shaq of Their Own at stone temple seattle pilots

    The Kingdome; Seattle, Washington
    First Pitch: 8:47 PM Eastern
    National Anthem Sung by: Anthony L Ray
    Weather at First Pitch: it doesn't matter, we're playing indoors


    Pedro Martinez came out with guns a blazing, striking out the first two batters he faced on his way to a 1-2-3 first inning.

    Addie Joss, though, had some struggles in the first inning, showing us this would not be quite the pitching duel we had in game one.

    Joss retired Hugh Duffy to open the game, then gave up a one-out single to Nap Lajoie, who then stole second base. Ken Griffey flew out for the second out, and Joss opted to intentionally walk Lou Gehrig, but Jocko Milligan - with his first hit since Aproids, we think - singled to score them both. George Brett was intentionally walked, and this time Hanley Ramirez singled to score Milligan, with a Willie McGee ground out ending the inning at 3-0.

    stone temple seattle pilots added a fourth run in the second, with an RBI single from Nap Lajoie, before a rally-killing, inning-ending double play from Ken Griffey Jr, clearly with his head not in the game due to playing left field.
    '
    it looked like that be enough, with Playoff Pedro absolutely dominant through five innings, striking out four along the way and carrying a perfect game into the sixth inning.

    But, Jack Clements got a leadoff single, ending the bid for the perfecto - right after John Smotlz mentioned it - and a walk to Roger Connor put two on, and gave us a chacne to see how Martinez would respond to pressure. Milligan had a passed ball that moved both runners up, and Martinez walked Joss, loading the bases with nobody out. A walk to John McGraw scored a run, as did a walk to Shoeless Joe Jackson, and a Ted Williams single scored two runs, and ended the night early for Martinez, with Tom Hanks as Jimmy Dugan calling on Dellin Betances.

    Betances got the first out of the inning on a George Sisler ground out, then Sisler made the second out, getting caught stealing. But, a bloop single from Wee Willie Keeler scored Jackson, Keeler stole second, and then scored on a single from Arky Vaughan. A wild pitch from Betances moved Vaughan to second, and an intentional walk to Clements brought Roger Connor to the plate. Connor doubled, scoring both Vaughan and Clements, before a Joss line out ended the inning with A Shaq of Their own up 8-4.

    Martinez final line was a disappointing five innings pitched, with five runs allowed, he gave up just two hits, but his four strikeouts were matched by his four walks.

    Joss worked around a one-out error and Betances got a 1-2-3 seventh inning, bringing his team to bat down four after the seventh inning stretch.

    Oscar Gamble entered the game as a pinch hitter for Betances and got a leadoff single, before getting replaced on base by Hugh Duffy after a fielder's choice. Duffy moved to third as Lajoie singled, bringing Ken Griffey Jr. to the plate, and he scored Duffy with a fielder's choice, but a ground out from Lou Gehrig ended the inning with just the one run in, and the pilots down to six outs in the game.

    Mike Adams was the selection from the pen for Hanks-Dugan. Sisler got a leadoff single, but Keeler hit into a fielder's choice and then was caught stealing, with an Arky Vaughan ground out ending the inning with no damage.

    Joss struck out Milligan to open the bottom of the eighth, but gave up a one-out single to George Brett. Hanley Ramirez hit into a fielder's choice for the second out of the inning, but Joss couldn't escape unscathed, as Willie McGee hit a ball to center field that if "Wee" Willie Keeler was just a little bit taller (or perhaps a baller or a shot caller) he might have been able to leap and catch, but at 5-foot, 4-inches, he had to just watch it barely clear the fence, bringing the pilots to within one run at 8-7. Hanks-Dugan went to the bench and sent up Kevin Mitchell as a pinch hitter, and Mitchell unloaded on a pitch from Joss, sending it high and deep to left field ... but not quite deep enough, as Ted Williams settled under it for the final out, sending us to the ninth inning.

    Hanks-Dugan went to Chad Green, and he gave up an infield single to Jack Clements to open the ninth inning. There would be no further damage, though, as a fielder's choice from Conner, a ground out from Joss, and a strike out of McGraw sent us to bottom of the ninth with a one-run game.

    A quick camera pan to the bullpen saw all pitchers for a Shaq of Their Own Duct Taped to the bench save Doc White, who turned to the camera and mouthed "I got you bae", apparently encouraging Joss to get the complete game.

    And, sure enough, Joss came out for the ninth, facing the top of the order, trying to even the series at two.

    Hugh Duffy was the first up in the ninth, and he grounded out to short. Nap Lajoie followed with a ground out to second. And Ken Griffey Jr. - still confused as to why he was playing left field - grounded out to Joss to end the game.

    And, just like that, the season is reduced is a best two-out-of-three.

    Player of the Game, brought to you by being Left Out in Left Field: You know, this was a team performance and we're not going to single anyone out.
    Final: A Shaq of Their Own 8, stone temple seattle pilots 7
    Win: Joss (1 - 0)
    Loss: Martinez (0 - 1)

    The Best-of-Seven Series is tied at two games each.

    A Shaq of Their Own at stone temple seattle pilots

    The Kingdome; Seattle, Washington
    First Pitch: 8:47 PM Eastern
    National Anthem Sung by: Kurt Cobain
    Weather at First Pitch: it doesn't matter, we're playing indoors


    Both teams know how important game five is - the team that wins game five in a best-of-seven baseball series when the series is tied 2-2 goes on to win the series about 70% of the time.

    And, while A Shaq of Their Own goes by the mantra "don't tell me the odds", they didn't waste any time getting to Charlie Bender in this one.

    John McGraw drew a leadoff walk, stole second, and moved to third on a groud out from Shoeless Joe Jackson, giving the Big Dieselers a chance to manufacture a run in the first. But, they didn't need manufacturing, as Ted Williams unloaded on a pitch, homering to right-center to give ShaqOTO a quick 2-0 lead. George Sisler walked, and Wee Willie Keeler singled, setting it up for Arky Vaughan, who singled, scoring Sisler and moving Keeler to third. But, Bender got Jack Clements to foul out, and Roger Connor to ground out, limiting the damage to three runs.

    Hugh Duffy tried to jump start things for stone temple seattle pilots, getting a leadoff single and stealing second base. But, a shallow fly out from Nap Lajoie (before the steal) and a ground out to third from Edgar Martinez (after it) gave Doc White a chance to get out of the inning. But, White walked Jocko Milligan, and George Brett delivered an RBI single, scoring Duffy, before Tip O'Neill grounded out to Vaughan to end the inning.

    Bender settled back into normal, getting a 1-2-3 inning in the second, and giving the bats a chance to back him quickly.

    Hanlery Ramirez got the second inning started with a bang, doubling, and then moving to third on a single from Willie McGee. McGee, though, ran the pilots out of a big inning, getting caught stealing, and a fly out from Bender gave White a chance to escape. However, he, again, could not take that chance, giving up a bloop single to Duffy that scored Ramirez, cutting the deficit to 3-2. Duffy stole second, and the inning did not end on a ground ball from Nap Lajoie, as Vaughan muffed it, putting runners on the corners with two outs for Edgar Martinez ... who struck out.

    Bender worked around a two-out single in the top of the third, and White got a 1-2-3 bottom of the inning, sending us to the fourth.

    Jack Clements doubled to open the inning. Roger Connor grounded out, and a sac bunt from White simultaneously moved Clements to third and made a strong argument for the Designated Hitter. John McGraw singled, and Clements scored, before McGraw was thrown out to end the inning, with the Big Dieselers up 4-2.

    The bottom of the fourth was a "what if" for the pilots, and the top of the fifth was a "what the ****?" for them.

    Ramirez singled to opening the inning for the pilots, but White got McGee to bounce into a 5-4-3 double play. Then, with two outs, a walk to Bender and singles from Duffy and Lajoie loaded the bases for Martinez, but again, he would not capitalize, bouncing into a 6-4 ground out to end the inning, and send Martinez on his way to a frustrating evening, with six men left on base.

    In the fifth, Bender retired Jackson to start the inning, but singles from Williams and Sisler put runners on the corners with one out. Keeler doubled to score those two, then he scored on a double from Vaughan. Clements singled to score Vaughan, and that brought Tom Hanks as Jimmy Dugan out of the dugout, and knocked Bender out of the game. Chad Green came on, and gave up a ground-rule double to Roger Connor, and a two-run double to White. A walk to McGraw and a single by Jackson loaded the bases once more, and a Ted Williams fielder's choice scored one more run - giving the Big Dieselers seven in the inning - before Green struck out Sisler to end the inning, with the pilots now down 11-2.

    Bender's final line was four-and-one-third innings pitched, with nine runs surrendered on eleven hits, two walks and no strikeouts.

    With the narrative in this game done, White was lifted for a pinch hitter in the seventh. His final line was six innings pitched, with two runs allowed on eleven hits, two walks and two strikeouts.

    A Shaq of Their Own added two more runs in the eighth, and Hong-Chih Kuo and Vida Blue tossed a combined three shutout innings - with Martinez making the final out of the game, capping his frustrating night - to seal the win for the Big Dieselers.

    A Shaq of Their Own will now head back to Petco Park needing just one win at home to win the first championship in franchise history, while the stone temple seattle pilots will hit the road with no margin for error left - they cannot lose again this season, or their season is over.

    Player of the Game, brought to you by squandered chances: Jack Clements
    Final: A Shaq of Their Own 13, stone temple seattle pilots 2
    Win: White (2-0)
    Loss: Bender (0-2)

    A Shaq of Their Own Lead the Best-of-Seven Series 3-2.
