Cubs 11, A’s 1

The Cubs used strong pitching, solid defense and a methodical offense to overpower the A’s, 11-1. Justin Cohen started and pitched two innings, allowing just one run, then Scott Moulin and Sean Bird came in to complete the victory with three shutout innings. On offense, the Cubs scored in every inning but the fourth.

Kevin Stoner continued his power surge with a triple, two doubles and a walk, scoring twice. Ben Whitefield hit a booming double to left and was on base four times. Bird was on base three times, scoring twice, and Leo Meissner chipped in with two singles and scored twice. Daniel Cohen, Juan Carrasquero, Robbie Fuelling and Brock Hudnut eached scored a run. The Cubs’ infield was especially tough defensively, highlighted by Whitefield’s nice play at third in the final inning, turning a hard-hit ground ball into an out.

Mets 10, A’s 9

The Mets staged a dramatic comeback in the bottom of the 6th to beat the A’s 10-9. In the first inning, Mike Fuelling led off for the Mets with a Deep Homerun onto the pavement. After the long ball, fine pitching by Muller blanked the Mets through four innings. After falling behind 9-1, the Mets chipped away, scoring two runs in the bottom of the fifth on base hits from Wills Van Sickle, Austin Willis and Fuelling. The Mets offense came alive in the sixth as Adam Horne led off with a double, and hits from Ryan Rubendall, Van Sickle, and Brendan Hempstead sparked a seven-run rally to give the Mets their first lead of the game. The A’s defense extinguished the rally with an amazing catch in Center Field and then relay home to nail the runner at the plate. Kyle Cheung struck out the side on the seventh to preserve the victory.

Brewers 6, Dodgers 5

The Brewers ended the season on a high note with a 6-5 victory over the Manny-less Dodgers Thursday before a festival crowd. The pitching staff was great as Mason Gilmour pitched three scoreless innings followed by Jack Webster pitching two and a third innings and Alex Gorski feeling comfortable in the closer roll. The Brewers started early with great batting by John Monroe, Mason, Will Huston, and Miles Dunbar for their first inning run production. Tyler Fierro continues to lock down the outfield supported by Langston Black and Hunter Pao. Daivon Grayson emerged as a great first baseman and crushed the ball at the plate. The Brewers are poised to make a deep run in the playoffs at this rate.
