In the first inning, Derek Dietrich hit a two-run shot which just got out, and that's all Tanner Rourke needed as the Cincinnati Red defeated the Oakland Athletics 3-0 on Thursday. Rourke gave up no runs on three hits with three strikeouts over six. Dietrich's homer, his fifth in six games, proved to be the difference in the GridCard as well as the game.
After a back-week battle full of high drama--including a Warriors @ Rockets double knockout--the Hamlin-Hopper came down to the final TickerKicker. Jodyann (34) shutout csmorgan71 (33), or rather Tanner Rourke did, Jodyann picking up her second win in three tries and third GridCard win of the year.
The Dietrich HR also settled the ProGrid Tour where Teunesto (31) nipped macs detail (30) for the PGT win. The Second Game played rougher than four-day sandpaper stubble, allowing only three Qualifying Scores. MW (69) and macs detail (69) earned King Kongs for winning the week.
