    Puig singles up the middle again.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Uribe ends the inning. Really need to get something back this next time through the order… once we get there.

  • http://www.tomahawktake.com/ Chris Headrick

    Frustration from the TED

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    WALK to Simmons to start.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Wild Pitch puts him at 2nd – EJ up; Chant activated.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    That wasn’t the best out.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    3-0 to Meds… now full count (no shock). That was likely ball four… fouled back.
    There’s the strikeout. 2 down.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Jason now 0-5 with 5K vs. Kershaw. Really.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Jason late… guarding against something off-speed… which usually doesn’t come vs. CK.

    • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

      Groundout – end of three innings. 0-4.

  • fireboss

    Our holes are very visible against Kershaw but we should have a run or two by now

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Ellis knows exactly where our OF’s are located. Another double.

  • fireboss

    not sure sliding and missing it 6 feet was a good idiea

    • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

      probably a double either way.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    The other Ellis singles home AJ Ellis… and Heyward once again fails to hit the cutoff guy. 5-0, runners 2nd/3rd.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Ayala warming quickly.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Tourniquet applied… Ramirez pops out.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Justin/Freddie/Bear for the bottom of the 4th.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    That’s Hunter Wendlestetdt??? Oy.

    • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

      Throw out everything I said about umpire scouting, then.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Classic Freddie Freeman liner for a single.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Shut up about Puig, already!

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Here’s where Bear needs a swing.

    • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

      …but wisely didn’t. TWO ON. 1 out.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Dang…. 4 feet away from being back in the game.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Chris Johnson RBI liner up the middle. 5-1.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    arrrgggg…. Simmons waves through ball 4.
    Medlen probably stays in the game now as a result.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Puig hit in the back. Crowd happy, Puig and Medlen aren’t.

    Medlen coming out.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Runners 1st & 2nd… nobody out. Welcome to the 5th inning, Luis Ayala.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Uribe bunts everybody over. not sure if CJ had gotten to third to cover.

    • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

      Oh my – he was definitely there… and with AGonz running… that was an easy out.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Ayala leaves ‘em loaded – Dodgers score no more.
    We’re halfway home… 5-1 LA Blue.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Johnson explaining to Hunter that his bat was a little loose in the turn.
    Seriously, though – this ump does not ask for help on check swings.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Kershaw is getting way too comfy now. Two strikeouts.

    • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

      Three. End of the fifth.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    6th… 5-1 Dodgers.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Walden out to pitch now. Under the circumstnaces, it’s probably a good time to find out if he’s truly good to go.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Maybe not. After a groundout, a sharp single past Simmons and now a big double to the RC wall.

    6-1.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Got AGonz to roll over on one… Hanley moves to third. 2 down.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Texas still has a full minute to save their coach’s job at Iowa State… from the 1 yard line.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Puig waves at a pitch over his head to end the threat.

  • fireboss

    If this team is all about emphasizing defense as I guessed and Fredi said we sure didn’t show it early on. Let them get their tails up and that’s been it

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Justin… 0-2…Kershaw carving now with his curve. Strikeout.

    Texas finally gets the TD… 31-30 after a ton of reviews. Iowa St. has 50 seconds.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    0-2 to Freddie. Check swing K. This is getting too easy… whether he really swung or not.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Gattis got decent wood on the ball, but Uribe dives and gets him at first.
    End sixth.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Iowa St. loses on batted ball interception…about 12-15 yards away from field goal range.

    Hello, Alex Wood.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Was that the first play for Simmons tonight?

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    1st 1-2-3 inning since…. the first?

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Kershaw’s matching us… pitch-for-comment. This is #105….his next pitch will be also.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Best swings tonight have been by McCann. Does he have another one in him?
    3-0 count… WALK… not even that close.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Chris… make him throw a strike…

    • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

      He didn’t. Ball just missed bouncing off the plate.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    That wasn’t fair????? Oh…. my…

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Pitch recognition is a problem… high or low.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Order restored defensively… but no offense to go with it.
    Middle 8th – still 6-1.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    The Beard is in… and added a pony tail? Ugh.
    Johnson #3 grounds out.

  • http://tomahawktake.com/ carpengui

    Finally – a clean single by Herward.
