2006 DMBO World Series

Game 1

We go to Toronto, where the Blue Jays and Giants will square off in the 2006 World Series.  Pedro Martinez looked for more post-season glory for the Jays, with Josh Beckett doing the same for the Giants.

With 1 out in the top of the 1st, Curtis Granderson continued his excellent post-season, hitting a home run to deep right center field.  The Giants added to their lead in the 2nd inning when Toby Hall hit an RBI single, scoring Eric Chavez to give the Giants a 2-0 lead.

Neither team put together many base runners over the next several innings, with the Blue Jays finally getting on the board with a Ryan Klesko home run to lead off the 6th.  The Blue Jays made more noise in the 7th inning, with Iguchi, LaForest, and Uribe hitting consecutive doubles for 2 runs, giving the Blue Jays a 3-2 lead after 7 innings.

Pedro Martinez stayed in the game, getting 3 quick outs in the 8th inning.  He came back in again in the 9th, looking to finish the game against the heart of the San Francisco order.  He got Granderson to strike out, Francoeur to fly out, and Shealy to ground out to end the game.  Martinez gets the win, Beckett the loss.  Final Score – Toronto 3, San Francisco 2

Game 2

This game featured Doug Davis for the Giants, against John Smoltz for the Blue Jays.  Just like in Game 1, the Giants got off to a 1st inning lead.  Clark and Granderson hit singles to put 2 on and 1 out.  Ryan Shealy hit a single to shallow center, with Clark getting thrown out at home.  Eric Chavez came through with a 2 out double, however, to bring in 2 runs.  Carlos Guillen followed that with an RBI single to give the Giants a 3-0 lead.

Toronto got on the board in the 4th inning, with Konerko hitting a single, and Pascucci following with a home run.  The score stayed at 3-2 San Francisco until the bottom of the 6th, where Davis started getting hit hard.  Konerko homered, Pascucci doubled, and DuBois homered, giving the Blue Jays a 5-3 lead through 6 innings.

The Giants weren’t done yet, however.  In the 7th inning, they put runners on 1st and 2nd with 2 outs and Francoeur at the plate, but he flied out to left field to end the threat.  The 8th inning saw them with a little more luck, as Chavez hit a 1 out single, then steal 2nd.  Guillen advanced Chavez on a fly out, and then Chavez scored on a wild pitch by Dotel, putting the score at 5-4 heading into the bottom of the 8th.

San Francisco still trailed by 1 run heading into the 9th inning.  Freel grounded out to short, and Clark grounded out to 2nd.  With 2 outs, Granderson got his 2nd hit of the game, bringing up Francoeur with the tying run on base.  Francoeur worked the count to 2-2 before popping out to 1st base, giving the Blue Jays a 2 games to 1 series lead.  Smolt got the win, with Cabrera and Dotel getting holds, Riske the save, and Davis the loss.  Final Score – Toronto 5, San Francisco 4

Nice start for the Jays, but I've got to stop playing come-from-behind. The fans love it, but it gives the GM indigestion :)

On to San Fran. No changes for the Jays - Alvarez and Glavine.

Much deliberation, but in the end, no profile changes for the Giants for games 3 & 4.

So Robb, do you want to try to keep us to a real-life schedule?  Sounds as if Scot and I are both ready to keep the series moving and get to a conclusion!

Everything OK back at headquarters?  We haven't heard anything about the series in four days.
