The real playoffs began today and some real old school baseball was played. San Francisco shutout Washington on the American side, while Charlotte shutout New York in the National league.
San Francisco got 8 great innings from Felipe Bournigal who allowed 4 runners while strking out 11. Joe Ogea struggled a little in the 9th allowing 2 runners on base, but managed to keep the shutout going. Grant Perez got on base 3 times and scored one run while driving in another. Elvis Ogea struggled a little in the game but still went the distance. He allowed 5 ER and gave up 5 walks in his 8 innings of work for Washington.
Charlotte took the 1-0 series lead by getting 7 near perfect innings from Vic Guardado. He allowed 3 hits and had one walk. New York's only threat was in the 5th as there were runners on 1st and 2nd with one out before two groundouts ended the inning. Ben Beamon continued his solid playoff play as he went 3-4 with a run scored. The FatNasty (I don't even want to know where that name came from) got a run in the 2nd and that turned out to be all they needed.
