1949 BVL Review

Visit Troutgorod, where homers fly and pitchers cry
 
The Blow Up The Kennel campaign was a success (Banksville blew up The Kennel), but no one predicted the many home runs that would fly out of Troutgorod. In the very first game in Troutgorod, Brick Church came away with a 1-hit, 1-0 win. Uh-oh! Donít worry: the Dogs are never shut out again ó and the over/under mania was born. Fast forward for crazy Dog demolition totals: 6.5 runs per game at home, 103 big flies (or 309 MLB homers, a record) and 314 runs. How many homers and runs did the Dogs tally in 1948? 68 and 249, respectively. Ronald Acuna Jr. and Mike Trout finish 1-2 in home runs. ďI love they named the park after me,Ē said Trout. ďBut I love hitting in this park more! Oh, yeah!Ē

Outside the Banksville bludgeoning, pitching performances dominated. Max Fried of Brick Church went undefeated, 9-0, and posted a league-best 1.66 ERA. Teammate, reliever James Hoyt, was even better: he didnít allow a run in 27 games (33 innings). Brooklynís Shane Bieber struck out 130 batters in 86 innings. Against Banksville, the righty stud struck out 20 Dogs in 9 innings, 21 in 10, in a game won by Brooklyn in 12. Crazy. That was better that the 18 strikeouts had by Indianapolis' Gerrit Cole and New England's Jacob deGrom.

Despite playing 40 games, Salvador Perez batted .391, clubbed 13 homers and finished third in RBI (39) for the Bruisers. DJ LeMahieu of Toronto batted a .362 high; Trout led all comers with 49 RBI. Ozzie Albies of Brick Church followed a walk-off home run against Homestead with three more in the next game. Thatís four straight home runs, if youíre keeping score at home. Hansel Robles proved you canít judge a pitcher by his card. He earned a save for Toronto despite a card ERA of 10.26. Thatís a record that might last a very long time. In the brawl of the year, Homestead v. New England, seven players are ejected. A.J. Pollock (pronounced Polickey by the Rat) socked a 3-run, first-inning homer and improved that with a Grand Slam in the second for Toronto.

Back to Banksville, who saved their best for last, taking a 10-game win streak into Brick Church for a season-ending 3-game series. Both clubs are tied 36-16. Drama? No drama. Dogs take the first two games, 16-5 and 4-1. Unfortunately, they lost home run king Acuna Jr. for the season in the clincher.

Two games after LES learned the career of Adam Wainwright was over, rookie Dinelson Lamet threw a 5-0 no-no against NYC. He struck out 13 Scrappers. In the Battle for Downtown, Brick Church, 9-3, dominated, followed by LES 5-7 and NYC 4-8.
