You never know…

This was an interesting game.  The Indians started Hagerman (BYW) and the W means wild.  The Dodgers started Cheney (AY) followed by reliever Marquard (A&CZ) then Dell (BZ).  The obvious thing from the Dodgers using three pitchers was that they were behind early enough that they went to the bench and bullpen.  The W rating didn’t directly hurt the Indians, but the two walks ended up advancing the lineup so the Dodgers were at the top of the order in the 9th inning.  The Indians fielding killed them in the end.  

Daubert led off the 9th inning by reaching 2nd on a two-base error.  After moving to 3rd on a groundout by Stengel, Zack Wheat launched his 2nd home run of the game.  Dell, who came on in relief in the bottom of the 8th, got the final three outs to preserve his win.  

With a runner on 3rd, there are several ways for a single-column player to hit a HR, but the 66-11 that brings up a 1 works every time.  This was one of the most exciting games and my first in the tournament with a player hitting two out in the same game.


ImageThe Indians didn’t really have a much better reliever and ultimately their fielding was their undoing.  The Indians are a 33 for a team rating of Fielding Three.  The Dodgers are a team 40 on defense which is Fielding Two.  If they had pitcher with a fielding rating of 2, instead of 1, that would enough to bump them to Fielding One at 41.  That seems to be their only downfall as far as a potential APBA Convention Tournament Team.  But, it is early and life is good!
