Game Stories For Brotherhood

LEGENDARY TAKES SERIES BEHIND JERICHO

Legendary defeated Brotherhood 4-3 to take the rubber match of the three-game series.

Legendary took an early lead when Andre the Giant scored on an error by AJ Styles.  Brotherhood tied the game in the bottom of the first inning when Big Show grounded into a double play scoring Jimmy Uso.  In the bottom of the second inning, AJ Styles made up for the error with a two-run single.

Jericho settled down after that hurling five straight scoreless innings.  Legendary would tie the game up in the top of the third inning on RBI groundouts by Andre and Triple H.  The game remained tied until Legendary took a 4-3 lead on the Undertaker’s RBI groundout.

Devon Dudley pitched a scoreless eighth inning followed by The Perfect Closer Curt Henning getting back on track pitching a scoreless ninth for the save.

Michael Hayes said Jericho showed toughness tonight.  “Chris really mowed them down when he got himself right.  We needed that.  It’s always good to win the series.”

“All these games were close and I wish we could have won one of these games we lost.  Roode was good enough to win today.  We need to get offensive consistency,” said Titus O’Neill.

 

Next up for Legendary is a series at Wild Things.  Brotherhood hosts Girl Power.

ROLLINS BURNS DOWN THE LEGENDS

 

Seth Rollins pitched a complete game victory as Brotherhood defeated Legendary 5-2 to even up the three-game series. Rollins scattered 8 hits and Brotherhood used timely hitting to back Rollins.

Jimmy Uso doubled leading off the bottom of the first inning and Kofi Kingston hit a triple to drive him in.  The Big Show then hit a sacrifice fly to give Brotherhood the early 2-0 lead.  Booker T had a RBI triple cutting the lead in half.  But was stranded at third to end the fifth inning.  In the top of the sixth inning Andre the Giant hit a solo HR to tie the game.  In the bottom of the sixth inning, John Cena hit a sacrifice fly and AJ Styles had an RBI double to give Brotherhood the lead for good.  Jeff Hardy’s RBI groundout gave Rollins an insurance run as we headed to the ninth inning.

Brett Hart started for Legendary and gave up four runs to Brotherhood.  Billy Gunn finished off the sixth inning and the rest of the game allowing one run in two and two-thirds innings.

Titus O’Neill praised Rollins’s effort.  “Seth was tremendous today and we were able to manufacture runs.  We still need to be better offensively.”

Tomorrow’s starters are Chris Jericho (1-1 ) against Robert Roode (1-1 ).

BROTHERHOOD GETS FLAIRED OUT

The Nature Boy “WOOOO” was brilliant in a complete game victory over the first place Brotherhood 4-1.

Brotherhood starting pitcher Dean Ambrose was brilliant himself early on in this game allowing only one hit through the first 4 innings.  Brotherhood had the lead early on in this game when Apollo Crews led off the bottom of the third inning with an HR off Flair.  But after that Flair never had a tense moment in the game.

In the top of the sixth inning, Legendary started to get rolling offensively.  Bubba Ray scored on an RBI single by Shawn Michaels.  Hacksaw Jim Duggan led off the top of the seventh inning with an HR.  Michaels led off the eighth inning with a walk and stole second.  Edge drove him in with an RBI double.  In the top of the ninth inning, Michaels again was in the middle of things hitting a single and scored on a bases-loaded walk to Duggan to close out the scoring for the night.

But Flair only needed two runs.  Flair allowed seven baserunners and struck out nine as Legendary knocked off the first place team.  “Flair was brilliant,” said Michael Hayes.  “You can’t pitch any better than that.”

Tomorrow’s starters are Bret Hart (2-0) vs Seth Rollins (1-1).

BROTHERHOOD OUTDUELS WILD THINGS IN CLASSIC GAME

In probably the best-played game on this season, Brotherhood defeated Wild Things 4-2.  This was a game that had two halves.  The first half was dominated by Brotherhood and the second half completely dominated by Freddy Shoop and Wild Things as Brotherhood wins the series two games to one.

It looked like early on Brotherhoods was going to run away with this game as they raced out to a 4-0 lead after 3 innings.  John Cena drove in Kofi Kingston with an RBI single in the bottom of the first inning.  Then in the bottom of the second inning, Kingston and Roman Reigns each had RBI singles.  Aleister Black’s solo HR leading off the bottom of the 4th inning gave Brotherhood a 4-0 lead.  With the way R Truth was pitching, it looked like this game was over.

Truth did not allow a hit until the top of the fifth inning, which is when Wild Things started to take control of the game.  Pedro Cerrano reached on an error by Kingston and scored on a Mickey Scales sacrifice fly making the score 4 to 1 Brotherhood.  Truth pitched out of jams in the sixth and seventh innings.  Then in the top of the eight inning things got interesting.  With two outs Clue Heyward walked and Jack Parkman hit a double.  After Cerrano singled home Heyward Truth was removed from the game.

With runners on first and third Brotherhood closer, Xavier Woods got Rube Baker to ground out to end the threat.  Meanwhile, Freddy Shoop got dominant and starting with 3 outs in the bottom of the third inning, not one Wild Thing batter reached base.  16 straight batters were retired by Shoop which kept Wild Thing in the game.  In the top of the ninth inning, Woods retired the first two batters of the inning.  Willie Mayes Hayes doubled and Kelly Leak singled him to third.  Up to bat was Darryl Palmer.  The slugger is who Wild Things want up with the game on the line.  Woods got him to pop up to end the game.

Next up for Wild Thing is a home series vs Outlaws.  Brotherhood goes home for a series against Legendary.

“Shoop deserved better today.  He was so dominant” said Lou Brown.  Titus O’Neill was pumped up after the game.  “Wow what a game.  Man Shoop got into a groove and we were fortunate to win.  But we played well and I am glad we took the series.”

WILD THINGS POUNDS BROTHERHOOD 12-5

Wild Things smacks three homers and Chet Steadman cruised to a 12-5 victory over Brotherhood.  Finn Balor lasted only 4 plus innings as Wild Things shrugged off the tough loss yesterday to pound out 17 hits in the rout.  Pedro Cerrano hit a three-run HR and drove in four runs overall.  Willie Mayes hit a grand slam and Jack Parkman added a solo HR.

Clue Heyward also had four hits as eight of the nine batters had base hits.  Brotherhood hit three homers in a losing effort.  AJ Styles, John Cena, and The Big Show all hit the round-trippers for Brotherhood.

Tomorrow’s rubber match has Freddy Shoop(1-1) for Wild Things pitching against R Truth(1-0) for Brotherhood.

Wild Things manager Lou Brown had this to say.  “That’s the way we can play offense.  It’s going to be scary when everyone is hot at the same time.”  Titus O’Neil on his team’s performance.  “We gave up 4 runs in 2 different innings.  We can’t win games that way.”

THE BIG DOG TREATS WILD THINGS ROODELY

In a game where Sammy Bodeen and Wild Things were dominating for 5 innings, The Big Dog Roman Reigns and Brotherhood get the last laugh in a 5-3 victory.

Wild Things jumped out early with Clue Heyward’s RBI Double in the top of the first inning off Robert Roode.  Two innings late Roger Dorn had an RBI single driving in Darryl Palmer.  On that play, there was an error by Big E which let Pedro Cerrano score giving Wild Things a 3-0 lead.  Meanwhile, Bodeen pitched 5 shut out innings on 4 hits.

Finally, in the bottom of the 6th inning Brotherhood got things going.  Kofi Kingston led off the inning with a walk.  The Big Show then had a base hit forcing Kofi to second.  Roman Reigns cracked a three-run HR to tie the game up at 3.  Bodeen settled down and got the next 2 guys out before walking Aleister Black and giving up a hit to EC3.  After Jimmy Uso walked his brother Jey also walked forcing in the go-ahead run.

After the third inning, Roode pitched gloriously for the next 4 innings before handing the game to the bullpen.  Wild Things scratched out another run in the 8th to lead 5-3.  Xavier Woods and Zack Ryder closed out the last 2 innings to give Brotherhood an unlikely win.

Tomorrow’s matchup has Finn Balor vs Chet Steadman.

Wild Things coach Jake Taylor had this to say. “Sammy was in complete control.  The walks killed us.  Give credit Roode for shutting us down.”  Reigns on his big HR.  “After Show gets on base I was figuring I would get a good pitch to hit.”

ROLLINS IS MASTERFUL IN DOMINATION OVER THE OUTLAWS

Seth Rollins hurled a six-hit shutout to lead the Brotherhood to a 7-0 shutout over the Outlaws in the rubber game of the series.

While Seth cruised Brotherhood rode a balanced offensive attack as every batter reached first base safely.  The game was scoreless into the bottom of the fifth when Danial Bryan issued walks to Big E and Matt Hardy.  Jey Uso then hit a two-run triple.  Twin brother Jimmy Uso followed with an RBI double.  AJ Styles then drove him in with a single.  Four runs were all Seth would need tonight.

Andrade relieved Bryan in the 6th inning and he was greeted by a John Cena solo HR.  Then in the 7th inning, AJ styles homered and Big Show had an RBI double to chase Andrade.  But the game was over at that point.

Shane McMahon was understandably frustrated after the game.  “We can’t get a streak going and somethings need to change.  This is not working right now.” No other comments were spoken by management.

Lio Rush commented, “Toxic. Toxic.  This is not working.  When you have two people trying to run the same entity in 2 different ways it’s toxic.”  No doubt LIo is referring to Vince and Shane McMahon being co-owners/managers.

Next up for the Outlaws is a 3 game set against at Girl Power while Brotherhood has a home series against Wonderboy

ZIGGLER AND HARPER LEAD OUTLAWS TO WIN

 

Dolph Ziggler pitched a complete game and Luke Harper drives in three to lead the Outlaws to a 6-2 victory over Brotherhood.  Ziggler gave up 11 hits and one walk while pitching out of trouble all game long to give a battered Outlaw bullpen the night off.

Harper got the scoring started with an RBI single driving in The Miz in the top of the first inning.  Brotherhood countered with an RBI single driving in Jimmy Uso.  In the top of the second inning, the ray Wyatt had back to back singles with 2 outs.  Lio Rush hit a three-run HR to give the Outlaws a 4-1 lead.  Brotherhood inched closer in the bottom of the 6th inning when Apollo Crews drove in Aleister Black with an RBI double after Black reached on an error.

But that was as close as Brotherhood got.  Luke Harper homered in the top of the seventh inning and also added an RBI single in the 9th making the score 6-2.

Outlaws Owner/Manager Shane McMahon felt like talking and said “Dolph was big time today.  We really needed a big performance.”  Dolph Ziggler, when asked about his performance, said” I was fortunate to keep my control in check.  11 hits are a lot to give up.  But my team needed me today.”

The rubber match of the series tomorrow has Seth Rollins pitching for Brotherhood against Daniel Bryan of the Outlaws.

Brotherhood Pounds Outlaws

BROTHERHOOD POUNDS OUT 21 HITS IN BLOWOUT WIN OVER OUTLAWS

Every player in the lineup had at least one hit and 8 different players scored a run as Brotherhood blows out Outlaws 16-1.  Brotherhood put on an offensive display as they batted around in both the 6th and 7th innings plating a combined 14 runs.  Outlaw starting pitcher Shinsuke Nakamura could not get out of the 5th inning and his replacements did not fare any better.

The Outlaws did have the early lead after Drew McIntyre’s sole HR in the top of the 1st inning.  The Miz’s sacrifice fly made the score 2-0 after three innings.  In the bottom of the 4th inning “The Top One Percent” EC3 slugged a 2 run HR to tie the game at 2.  The Outlaws came right back scoring 3 runs on a Miz RNI single followed by RBI singles by Elias and Rusev.  After that it was all Brotherhood as they unleashed an impressive offensive display to break open the game.

Jimmy Uso drove in 4 runs and Twin brother Jey was 4-4 scoring 2 runs and driving in 3.  AJ Styles, Apollo Crews and EC3 all had 3 hits apiece and Sin Cara was excellent in relief picking up the win.

 

After the game Shane McMahon was not in a talking mood just staring out into the field.  Brotherhood Manager Titus O’Neil commenting on hit offense.  “Impressive.  Just Impressive.”

Tomorrow’s pitching matchup will be Dolph Ziggler for The Outlaws and Dean Ambrose for the Brotherhood.

Game 9 Stories

GIRL POWER RIDE DEVILLE, 4 HOMERS FOR MUCH NEEDED WIN

Sonya Deville is starting to build up a reputation as the team stopper.  For the second time in as many starts Deville stopped a losing streak as Girl Power avoids a sweep to Wonderboy with a 7-3 victory.

The game did not start off good for Deville as Juan Primo led off the game with a double and Bobby Rayburn hit a 2 run HR that erased a brief 1-0 lead Girl Power lead on a solo HR by Charlotte Flair.

Sarah Logan’s solo HR in the second tied the game up and Carmella’s solo shot gave Girl Power the lead in the 3rd inning.  Girl Power continued to talk on the runs in the 4th as Nikki Bella drove in Ronda Rousey with a sacrifice fly and Nattie drove in Logan with a double.

Juan Primo had an RBI single in the 5th for Wonderboy making the score 5-3 Girl Power as Deville settled in and finished the game by pitching 7 innings of 3 run ball.  In the 9th inning Nikki Bella hit a 2 run HR to put the game away.  Zelina Vega pitched 2 scoreless innings in relief for another bright spot.

Girl Power is just 2-7 on the season but have been in every game.  “We really needed that win today,” said Paige.  “I know we will be fine.  These women compete every game.  We will get results.  It will come.”

Wonderboy is 5-4 on the season and while star catcher Crash Davis is set to return from an injury Low Collins went down today.  We asked Pop Fisher about the injuries.  “We were excited to get Crash back tomorrow and then Lou goes down.  But I don’t expect to struggle like out backup catchers did when Crash was out.”  When asked about Girl Power.  “Tough team.  They were right there with us.  Those games could have gone either way.  They also did a great job controlling Roy Hobbs.”

Next up for Girl Power is Legendary.  Wonderboy gets Wild Things.

BLACK & BALOR & BROTHERHOOD CRUISE TO WIN

Finn Balor pitched 7 strong innings and Aleister Black drives in 4 runs as Brotherhood avoids a sweep with an 8-2 win over Legendary.

Roman Reigns singled home Kofi Kingston in the top of the first inning and Brotherhood never looked back from there.  Balor got into a groove, firing zeros at Legendary as Brotherhood started to pull away in the middle innings.

Black hit a 2 run HR in the 5th and followed that with a 2 run base hit in the 6th to build a 6-0 lead.  The Brotherhood victory forged a tie with Legendary for the top spot in the league.

“Balor was tremendous today,” said Titus O’Neil.  “He was impressive and Aleister stepped up hitting before Kofi who is always in the middle of every rally.”  Next up for Brotherhood is a home series with the Outlaws.  Legendary goes on the road to play Girl Power.

WILD THINGS HOLDS ON TO AVOID SWEEP BY OUTLAWS

Wild Things scored 5 runs in the first two innings as Chet Steadman and the bullpen held on to pick up a hard fought 5-4 victory over the Outlaws.

Darryl Palmer hit a 2 run HR in the top of the first inning and followed that by cracking a 3 run HR the next inning to give the Wild Things all the runs they would need in route to the victory.

Before the game got out of line Outlaw Manager Shane McMahon replaced starting pitcher Sheamus with Andrade in the top of the third inning with the bases loaded and 2 out.  Andrade got that last batter out and pitched another 6 innings of scoreless baseball to keep The Outlaws in the game.

Drew McIntyre drove in the first Outlaw run in the 4th inning followed by RBI’s by Erick Rowan and Brock Lesnar in the 6th inning.  With the Wild Things clinging to a 5-3 lead things got interesting in the bottom of he 8th.

With Cliff Youngsberry in the game he walked Luke Harper. Then Mcintyre and The Miz followed with singles to load the bases with no one out.  Erick Rowan’s RBI groundout made the score 5-4 and on the play McIntyre and Miz made it to second and third.  Youngsberry then retired the next 2 batters to end the inning,

The Duke came into the 9th inning for the save and he promptly gave up a lead off single to Lio Rush.  Rush stole second to put the tying run on second.  Shane McMahon then had Sami Zayn try to sacrifice Rush to third, but he was cut down.  After Zayn’s failed sacrifice bunt attempt The Duke settled down and struck out Elias and Luke Harper to end the game.

The Outlaws failed to sweep Wild Things but the play has improved.  But we have been unable to speak to any of the players and management as the McMahons are still not allowing media access.  Next up for the Outlaws is a series against the first place Brotherhood.

Wild Things manager Lou Brown had this to say after the game.  “We needed that win.  No one wants to get swept.  Darryl got us started early.  I felt Chet was starting to lose it.  We may have gotten fortunate we held on to win.  Youngsberry has got to pitch better.” Next up for Wild Things is a series at Wonderboy.
