The 1927 Yankees beat the 84 Padres 4 to 3. Babe Ruth homered. Padres had men on the corners with nobody out in the 7th and couldn't tie it up and in the 9th, Tony Gwynn and Kevin McReynolds failed to get the tying run home from 2nd with one out.

B.Zobrist grounds it past the mound into CF for a single. J.Baez scores. K.Bryant is safe at 3B in a close play.
A.Russell hits one to LF that bounces over the wall for a ground-rule double. K.Bryant scores.

In a battle for the Keystone state from teams 100 years apart, the 2008 Phils fall to the 1908 Pirates 2-1. Vic Willis throws a complete game allowing only a Ryan Howard solo shot.

In the first upset of the day, the 80 Royals beat the 93 Giants 4-1. George Brett RBI double followed by a Hal McRae two run shot provides KC with their big inning and Dennis Leonard goes 8 allowing 1 run. Dan Quisenberry gets the save with a scoreless 9th. Bonds/Clark/Williams go 1 for 10

The 1944 Browns play like everyone good is still away at war and pound the 53 Dodgers 10 to 3. Carl Ernskie gets pounded for 5 runs and I've only heard of one player on this Browns team.

Will post the other regions this afternoon/evening

Kevin Brown allowed 2 runs in 8 innings, Trevor Hoffman got the save after a 2 run shot by Greg Vaughn off Jack Morris in the 7th tied it and Steve Finley homered off Steve Bedrosian in the 8th to give the Pads a 3-2 victory over the 91 Twins.

Game 2 of the Ruth Region

The 27 Yankees move a game away from a sweep. The Bambino tied things with a 2 run homer in the 6th and the Yankees went ahead later in the inning on a Joe Dugan 2 run single. Urban Shocker went 8 innings allowing 2 earned as NY prevailed over SD 5-3.

Randy Johnson and George Mullin locked horns in a pitcher's duel, with the 1908 Tigers taking a 2-1 lead in the 8th when Ty Cobb scored on a single and told Damien Miller he fucked his mother as he slid home. In the bottom of the 9th, Miller singled with 2 out. Greg Colbrunn walked and Tony Womack followed with a single to load the bases. Jay Bell then lined a single to left center to score Miller and Colbrunn and give AZ a 2-0 series lead.

If you bet on a pitcher's duel between Pedro and Patrick Corbin, you'd have been wrong, as Boston won a slugfest 13-11. Boston played home run derby again as Manny, Trot Nixon, Varitek, Millar, Bill Mueller and Orlando Cabrera all went deep. Washington scored 7 in the 8th to make it close but Keith Foulke pitched a perfect 9th to close things down.

The 98 Braves made quick work of the 08 Rays, as Glavine allowed 2 runs in a complete game and Javy Lopez homered en route to a 7-2 win.

Jake Arietta threw a complete game, allowing one run on four hits as the Cubs bashed the 82 Brewers 10-1. Addison Russell treated the baseball like his wife, bashing 2 homers and Rizzo added another.

The Phils evened up the series against the Pirates with a 6-4 win. Utley plated the go ahead run in the 4th and Pat Burrell added some insurance in the 7th. Lidge got the save with a perfect 9th.

KC and SF were locked in a scoreless tie in the 6th inning when George Brett hit a 2 run homer to put the Royals ahead. Will Clark would tie it with a 2 run single in the 7th and win the game in the 9th, hitting a triple to bring home Darren Lewis and even up the series for the Giants, 3-2.

Duke Snider tied things up at 4 with a solo blast in the 8th inning, but the Browns pulled ahead 6-4 in the top of the 9th thanks to a triple by Al Zarilla, who sounds like someone from The Simpsons. Facing the possibility of a sweep tomorrow at Sportsman's Park, the Dodgers rallied for 3 to win it in the 9th.

G.Caster enters the game to pitch.
B.Cox grounds out to SS.
J.Gilliam lines a single to RF.
B.Morgan enters the game as a pinch-hitter for J.Hughes.
B.Morgan skies one to CF that falls in for a double. J.Gilliam scores.
D.Thompson enters the game as a pinch-runner for B.Morgan.
S.Zoldak enters the game to pitch.
P.Reese takes ball four.
J.Robinson bloops a single to CF. D.Thompson scores. P.Reese advances to 3B despite the throw.
D.Snider walks.
R.Campanella grounds it thru the hole to LCF for a single. P.Reese scores.

Coked Up Keith Hernandez Region

The 86 Mets now have their back against the wall after falling to the Rangers 6-5 in Arlington.

Scott Sanderson threw 7 2/3 innings and allowed 1 run, Eck got the save and the 90 A's went up 2-1 on the 11 Rangers with a 5-3 win. The Bash Brothers both homered for Oakland.

The 2001 Mariners laid an egg in fake reality as well, getting swept by the 1990 Pirates. Randy Tomlin allowed a run over 7 innings, Bonds homered and the Pirates won 6-3.

Bewildered by scoreboards, night baseball and commercial airline travel, the 1917 White Sox fell to the 82 Angels 13-4. Brian Downing homered, Fred Lynn had 3 knocked in and Reggie Jackson drove in 4.

A 7th inning Greg Luzinski double and an RBI groundout by Gary Maddox an inning later proved to be the only scoring in a 2-0 Phils victory over the 98 Astros.

MGM Resorts presents the Pete Rose Region

Coors Field provided a prototypical Coors Field slugfest as the 75 Reds beat the 96 Rockies 12-10. Morgan, Bench, Perez, Griffey and Concepcion all homered for the Redlegs.

A Jorge Polanco RBI double and a Miguel Sano sac fly in the first proved to be all the runs the Twins needed to beat the 57 Braves 2-1. Michael Pineada went 6 innings for the win and Taylor Rogers pitched around 2 hits in the 9th for the save.

The Giants exploded for 6 runs in the 7th inning, including a three run shot by Gregor Blanco to beat the 05 ChiSox 8-6. Santiago Casilla picked up the save.

The 15 Mets trailed the 17 Astros by a run going into the bottom of the 8th of game 3, but Cespedes led off the inning with a solo shot to tie things up and Travis d'Arnaud put the Mets ahead with a solo shot later in the inning. Familia retired the Astros in order for the save.

Mark Mulder threw a complete game 5 hit shutout and a Moneyball team has a shot at actually winning a postseason series. Tejada, Chavez and Hatteberg went back to back to back in the first.

A four run first was all the 71 Pirates needed to sweep the 77 KC squad with a 4-3 win. Bob Johnson went 8 for the win.

The 2011 Brew Crew won 1-0 in 10 innings to put the mighty 98 Yankees on the doorstep of elimination. Shawn Marcum and John Axford combined on the 4 hit shutout. Ryan Braun singled to left center to plate Lucroy with the winning run in the 10th.

... The 02 A's cruised to an 8-2 win over Curt Schilling and the 93 Phils. Dye and Terrance Long went back to back in the 2nd to take a lead the A's would never relinquish.

...
Dye blasted Home Runs for two different teams on the same day! That’s having a solid day.

Thanks for doing and sharing this Aaron and congrats to you and Mrs. Aaron.

Game 4 Coked Up Keith Hernandez Region

A 16 SEED HAS DEFEATED A 1 SEED! THE 86 METS HAVE BEEN KNOCKED OUT BY THE 99 RANGERS!!!!!

A Raffy Palmeiro two run shot gave the Rangers a 3 run lead in the 4th that they never relinquished on the way to a 7-5 win. Esteban Loiaza got the win in relief and John Wetteland got the save. Pudge, Palmeiro and Rusty Greer all homered for the Rangers. Four Mets were hospitalized for drug overdoses after the game.

Jack Morris allowed 1 run in a complete game victory to advance the 92 Blue Jays over the 03 Marlins. Joe Carter homered twice and Dave Winfield and Robbie Alomar added shots of their own for a 5-1 victory.

Dave Stewart went on short rest and dominated the 11 Rangers, the 90 A's advanced with an 8-0 win. Jose Canseco and Dave Henderson homered.

The 1917 White Sox throw the series to get back at cheapskate Jim Berger, who spends all of his time in Maine instead of focusing on the team. Geoff Zahn threw a complete game and allowed 3 runs for the win. Brian Downing went 4 for 4 with 3 doubles to lead the Angels offense.

It was not Lima Time in Houston as Jose Lima allowed 5 in 7 innings, Steve Carlton threw a 3 hit shutout as the Phils cruised to a 5-0 win to advance. Schmidt homered twice, Luzinski and Larry Bowa also homered as no game in this region will go to 5 games.

MGM Resorts Presents the Pete Rose Region

The Big Red Machine advanced in another typical 90s Coors Field game, 14-12.Colorado trailed 11-6 entering the bottom of the 8th, but tied things up with a Big Cat double and a pair of two run blasts by Eric Anthony and Vinny Castilla. The Reds went ahead in the 9th on singles by Griffey and Geronimo. Rawley Eastwick got the save, pitching around a home run.

Miguel Sano tied things in the top of the 8th for the Twins, but the 57 Braves responded with a home run by Joe Adcock to win 11-8 and force Game 5.

The 05 White Sox forced Game 5 with a 12 inning victory, 13-9. Freddy Garcia and Barry Zito both got knocked out early. Konerko singled home Tad Iguchi off Jeremy Affeldt in the 8th to tie things up. Chicago went ahead in the 11th thanks to a triple by Aaron Rowand, who came home on an AJ Pierzinski single. The Giants evened things back up thanks to a Gregor Blanco homer in the bottom of the inning. A Konerko grand slam gave the White Sox a 5 run lead, but the Giants would load the bases to bring the tying run up with 2 outs after a Brandon Crawford bases loaded walk. But the Giants were out of pitchers and Joaquin Arias had to hit for himself and popped out to left field to end it.

Jay Buhner broke a 2-2 tie with a solo homer in the 8th inning to force a 5th game. The desperate M's threw Randy Johnson, who pitched a complete game and struck out 12, but must now turn to Jamie Moyer or Jeff Fassero for the rubber match. Paul Sorrento also homered for the M's

Yuli Guerriel doubled home JJ Reddick in the 2nd for the only run of the game as Lance McCullers, Chris Devinski and Ken Giles combined on a 3 hit shutout to force Game 5 in Houston tomorrow.

The 93 Phillies rallied for 3 in the 8th to even the series with a 4-2 win over the 02 A's. A bases loaded Darren Daulton walk got the Phils on the board and Jim Eisenrich had a two out, bases loaded double to put them ahead. Mitch Williams got the save

The 98 Yankees avoided the upset with a 3-2, 11 inning victory over the 2011 Brewers. Cory Hart had two solo homers for the Brewers, including one in the 8th to tie things up. Betancourt got nailed stealing second right before a Lucroy single in the 9th to killer a Brewer rally that could've won the series. Bernie Williams doubled home Tino Martinez for the winning run in the 11th, but Mariano Rivera had some trouble in the bottom half. Jeter and Chad Curtis both had errors that put runners at the corners with one out, but Rickie Weeks didn't try to tag on a shallow fly out by Betancourt with one out, and Lucroy flew out to the track to end it.

The Earl Weaver Meltdown Region

The Orioles took a 7-1 lead and held on for a 7-5 win to send the series back to Baltimore. Archie Bradley was the goat again, giving up 3 runs while only recording 2 outs. Grienke awaits either Mike Cuellar or Dave McNally in Game 5.

A Tony Gwynn single provided the Padres with a 1-0 lead in the 6th inning, which held up until the 9th. The Padres left Trevor Hoffman in the pen and Kevin Brown couldn't finish it, allowing Randy Bush to drive home Brian Harper with a 2 out pinch hit RBI single to tie it up. Brian Boehringer tossed a scoreless top of the 10th and got the win when Ken Caminiti hit a 2 run walkoff smash off Mark Guthrie in the bottom of the 10th. Game 5 at the Metrodome tomorrow.

Dave Stieb threw a complete game, allowing 2 runs as the 85 Blue Jays knocked the 105 win 2004 Cardinals out of the tournament. The Jays took the lead in part to a Scott Rolen error, which loaded the bases. Rance Mulliniks walked and Willie Upshaw grounded into a double play, but that made it 3-2 and the score held up.

The 94 Expos exploded for 15 runs at Wrigley, knocking Steve Trout out in the first inning to win and force game 5. Butch Henry got the win despite giving up 6 in 5 innings.

Cleveland scored 3 touchdowns en route to a 21-1 victory over the 97 Marlins to clinch the series. Yan Gomes had 2 homers, Lindor had 6 RBI and Clevinger went 8 for the win.

The Angels stayed alive with an 11-10 victory in ten innings at Fenway. The Angels took a 10-6 lead into the bottom of the 9th, but Al Levine gave up a 2 run homer to Wade Boggs. Troy Percival came in to get the save, but allowed a 2 run shot to Dwight Evans to tie things up. A Garrett Anderson ground rule double gave the Halos the lead in the 10th and Brendan Donnelly picked Wade Boggs off first for the final out to send the series back to California.

The Tigers stayed alive, winning 7-6 in 10 innings. The Rockies tied things up in the 6th thanks to a Seth Smith pinch hit 3 run blast. Hall of Famer Alan Trammell singled in the 10th, stole second, advanced to 3rd on a sac fly and came home on a Larry Herndon single to win it. Game 5 at Tiger Stadium tomorrow, though Sparky Anderson threw Jack Morris today so he'll be without his ace to face Ubaldo Jimenez

Game 5 Ruth Region

The 04 Red Sox walk it off to survive. Max Scherzer went 8, allowed one run and struck out 13 as Washington went into the 9th with a 2-1 lead. Then this happened:

S.Doolittle enters the game to pitch.
J.Damon walks.
J.Damon is caught trying to steal 2B.
M.Bellhorn grounds out to SS.
M.Ramirez draws the walk.
D.Ortiz rips a liner to LF for a double.
D.Roberts enters the game as a pinch-runner for D.Ortiz.
N.Garciaparra hits a bloop double to LCF. M.Ramirez scores. D.Roberts scores.

The 1908 Pirates beat the 08 Phillies 3-2. The game was tied at 2 in the 7th when Pittsburgh put together a rally with 2 walks and a Roy Thomas single to get the winning run home. Philly went down in order in the 9th.

The Dodgers avoid the upset as the Browns staff unravels and allows 7 runs in the 7th and 8th to lose 10-9. The Browns had a 9-3 lead after 5. A Jackie Robinson triple and a Duke Snider sac fly cut the lead to 9-5 in the 7th. The Duke would bring home Pee Wee Reese and Robinson with the game winning double with 2 outs in the 8th. The shell shocked Browns went down in order in the 9th, having blown the opportunity for a huge upset.
