Gameday 8: Video Recap and One Other Gameplay

We’ve completed Gameday 8 here at the Ten-acious Baseball League. It’s actually been completed for a week now. I neglected to post a recap of the action from Gameday 8 here on the blog. The reason was because I created a video recap and then completely forgot to post it here. Here is the recap over at our YouTube Channel:

I would love it if you’d subscribe to our YouTube channel. There will be at least 1 gameplay video each Gameday, barring some extenuating circumstances that arise in the future. I’d also like to start coming up with some other types of video posts to help keep the channel fresh and moving with ideas.

Unfortunately, I only made hard copies of the Gameday 8 statistics. If the desire hits me right, I may scan those in and post down the line.

The TBL continues to chug on, be on the lookout for Gameday 9 updates later today or early tomorrow. We’ll be moving into the 4th (of 18) series very shortly.

In the meantime, here’s another gameplay video from Gameday 8 that I failed to post. It’s an I-94 showdown between the Brewers and Twins.

 

Gameday 7 Recap: LA Bombs Their Way To 4-1 Victory Over Cubs

TBL Standings (7G)

As seen on our YouTube channel, home runs from Adrian Gonzalez, Chase Utley, and Joc Pederson helped the Los Angeles Dodgers improve to 6-1 on the season with a 4-1 victory over the visiting Cubs.

Zack Greinke pitched 7 1/3 innings for the victory, giving up only 3 hits to the Cubs. Dan Haren, pitching for Chicago, was hurt by having 3 of the 4 hits surrendered fly over the wall.

Miguel Montero also homered for the Cubs, who lost for only the second time this season.

In other action:

  • Also covered on the video channel, the Rockies used extra innings to overcome the Tigers 6-4 in 10 innings. Carlos Gonzalez and Brandon Barnes each singled in a run in the 10th of Neftali Feliz, putting Colorado up for good. Detroit’s Alex Wilson was credited with the loss, while closer John Axford earned the victory for the Rockies.
  • A Tyler Flowers error in the 7th inning allowed Eric Hosmer to score the winning run for Kansas City as they beat the Chicago White Sox 5-4. The Sox battled back from a 3-1 deficit to take a 4-3 lead on a 3-run home run from Jose Abreu. But Alex Gordon tied it up with a solo shot, and Flowers’ error handed starter Chris Sale the loss. Luke Hochevar pitched 2 strong innings for the victory in relief, while Greg Holland grabbed his 2nd save of the season.
  • Milwaukee downed Tommy Milone and the Minnesota Twins 6-1. Hernan Perez reached with 3 doubles, and Jason Rogers bashed a 2-run home run to lead the Brewers offensively. Taylor Jungmann came through with a complete game 6-hitter for the win.
  • The Rangers provided Cole Hamels with plenty of run support in his second start, earning the 8-2 triumph over St. Louis. Hamels gave up 4 hits on the day, with the only real blemish being a 2-run homer to Jhonny Peralta in the 1st inning to fall behind. But Rougned Odor tied the game in the 5th off Lance Lynn, and Prince Fielder knocked in the game winning run on a double. Mitch Moreland had 2 home runs and 4 RBI in this one.

Provided below are the current standings and statistics for the TBL. Be on the lookout for more gameday video.

Video: TBL Gameday 7, Colorado at Detroit

For a little bonus coverage from Gameday 7, we recorded the second half of a doubleheader for our Youtube channel. This one is Colorado heading out to Motown to face the Tigers, who have started the season slowly. Will the Rockies climb above 0.500 in this one, or will Detroit be able to change their course in this early season? Check out the coverage to find out!

Day 4: Brewers Walk-Off Colorado 10-9

 

TBL S1 4 Games

The Rockies were cruising along in the 8th inning, leading host Milwaukee 9-2. Then the Brewers bats woke up. They erupted for 8 runs in the final 2 frames to steal a victory from the visitors.

Colorado rode Nolan Arenado’s first 2 home runs of the season, setting up starter Chris Rusin for what looked like an easy win. But Scott Oberg and John Axford were unable to put away the Brew Crew.

After Khris Davis cut the lead to 9-7 on a solo home run, the wheels fell off for closer Axford. A DJ LeMahieu error, a single, and a walk loaded the bases for Hernan Perez. The Venezuelan third baseman grounded out, forcing home a run. Then pinch-hitter Scooter Gennett hit a gapper which completed the improbable comeback. The win was Milwaukee’s first of the season.

In other action:

  • The Los Angeles Dodgers continued their road trip success by defeating the Chicago White Sox 9-3. Home runs from Scott van Slyke, Yasiel Puig, and Alex Guerrero secured the easy win for starter Alex Wood.
  • The Cubs also ran their record to 4-0 with a 7-5 result over Texas. Kris Bryant went 4-for-4 with a home run, and Jorge Soler pounded a 3-run shot to lead the way.
  • St. Louis got back to 0.500 in their win over Detroit. Tiger pitchers combined to walk the Cardinals 9 times, which contributed to St. Louis’s 7 run output on only 1 extra base hit.
  • The Twins dropped to 0-4 after their 3-0 loss to Kansas City. The Royals cobbled together 3 runs on 8 hits, handing a tough loss to Mike Pelfrey. Yordano Ventura pitched 7 scoreless innings for the victory.
