This week five Gentleman’s Game Cup series was decided by two ‘great’ calls by Swindaman3: the stones to use Clay Buchholz, who delivered 36.2 points with 11 strikeouts in Seattle; and a contrarian play of Billy Butler in a game that got wild late out in Oakland.
Diamondhoggers led the contest almost the entire way until when it mattered, aided by 26 points from Gerardo Parra and 30 points from two-homer Ryan Braun.
Who would know that a late-night base hit by Country Breakfast that didn’t even make Sportcenter could decide such high drama.
Four of the five contestants used Clayton Kershaw who scored 28.8 points.
Diamondhoggers – 23 points
DStars45 – 19 points
t3bird04 – 17 Points
Swindaman3 – 17 Points
Jsquad34 – 13 Points
Here’s a copy of the winning lineup that got the job done for Swindaman3:
The Gentleman’s Cup Series is heating up with the weather. Things are getting tight in the middle and Diamondhoggers is beginning to distance themselves from the likes of JSquad34. But we have an entire summer of Gentleman Fun to decide the victor.
Will a late-night Country Breakfast give someone a gallstone attack next weekend? Will anyone have the audacity to use Clay Buchholz once again? Will Pete Kozma ever make an appearance in the Gents cocktail party?
You must all stay tuned to find out.
