SLDS Stars Boston games 3-4

Miami vs Boston game 3

Stars scored first as Joe Young and Devan Arceneaux hit back to back doubles.  Boston scored 3 in the 2nd, starting with a homerun from Kodos.  Next inning Michael Sanders hit a 2 run homer to make it 5-1.  Doug Frazier homered in the 4th, and Boston scored 3 runs in the inning to make it 8-1.

The final score was 9-2, with Matt Rogers striking out 9 over 7 innings.  For Miami, Larry Reed was charged with 5 runs on 9 hits and did not make it out of the 3rd.

Game 4

Aaron Moore hit a 2 run first inning homer off Bryan Castillo.  Castillo barely survived the inning, with the final 2 outs recorded with the outfielders going to the wall.  Alex Williams homered in the 2nd, and one out later a double by Jorge Cendejas chased Castillo.  Miami would unload the bullpen to try and save their season.

Travis Howard walked the first batter he faced, but then recorded two strikouts.  Howard threw 52 pitches over 2.2 innings to keep things from falling apart.  He struck out 5 before tiring.

Peter Rabbitt put Miami on board with a 5th inning homer.  In the 6th, Young and Arceneaux doubled before Billy Bass put Miami 4-3 with a homer.  Oswipe Cabrera reached on an error, stole second, and scored on a Mathis single.

In the bottom 6th Boston tied the game back up on an Alex Williams 2 run homer.  Johnny Anderson relieved Tom Knight and got out of that inning.  In the 7th Aaron Moore homered to put Boston back on top 6-5.

Dwight Schrute came on for the bottom 8th.  He walked Williams, who moved to second on a bunt, and Jorge Cendejas singled him home for an insurance run.  Schrute struck out the last 2 and Miami had one more chance against closer Julio Rodriguez.

Brian Kaat, in his possible final plate appearance, drew a walk.  He moved up on a wild pitch. Joe Young flew out to center.  Arceneaux walked.  Billy Bass hit a ground ball to first which Aaron Moore turned into a game ending 3-6-3 double play.

Miami won 109 games in the regular season, but could only manage one in the playoffs.
