    I suppose I'll start:

    Just finished two games against CPU Oakland. Ill do stats and such moving forward, just wanted to get this down so I remembered before i went to bed.

    Game 1

    Lost the first 3-2 in bottom of the 9th. Asdrubal Cabrera homered in the top half to tie it, but Mark Ry[okjasd;fljknisky gave up a walk and 3 singles to take the loss.

    Game 2

    In game two, it was 0-0 going into the 7th when Asdrubal Cabrera AGAIN came up big, singling up the middle to score Michael brantley. In the next inning Nick (Bro-hio) Swisher smashed a 2 run homer to right to give the Tribe a 3-0 lead. Unfortunately, after the win the CPU gods failed to give the tribe the win and didnt count the game as being played. Any chance i can go ahead and resolve a win for the Tribe when I get on tomorrow?

    Yep. We've found that waiting about 30 seconds after the game ends to exit out helps record games. Not sure why but it seems to work.

    CLE - 1
    OAK - 4

    The A's took the opening series of 2014 with a 4-1 win at the O.CO. Colosseum behind a dominant pitching performance by Milone. Danny Salazaar showed some poise late after giving up 3 runs in the second due to 2 walks and 2 hits. Bro-Hio hit a meaningless solo bomb in the 9th to make it look better, but the Indians fall to 1-2 on the young season.


    Cle - 5
    SD - 1

    A 1-1 game in the 8th was broken open by the top of the Tribe order as they scored 4 in the frame. Corey Kluber pitched 7 strong but came away with a ND. Vinnie Pestano got the win and John Axford picked up the save as the Tribe won their home opener and move to 2-2 on the season.

    Twins fans had little excitement going into this season but after the opening series against the White Sox, optimism is everywhere.

    Game 1:

    Twins-3
    White Sox-1

    Game 2:

    Twins-6
    White Sox-3

    In the first inning of game 2, Joe Mauer was injured sliding into second trying to break up a double play. Chris Cobello came in as a substitue, and answered with a 2 run homerun in extra innings to win the game for the Twinkies.

    Game 3:

    Twins-9
    White Sox-3

    Twins fans were anxious entering this game without Joe Mauer in the lineup, and a rookie on the mound. Alex Meyer delivered a 7 inning 9K performance allowing only 1 run on an Adam Dunn home run. Josh Willingham answered any questions about where offense would come from blasting 2 homeruns in his first 2 at bats.

    This Twins team is young and has a lot of potential. I wouldn't think this would be a year for them to make a playoff run, but crazier things have happened.
