League Championship Series, Game 4: Magpies level series again with thumping win

By Maggie Pye | 12 October | 5,384 comments

Tommaso Chigi finally got the nod to start for the Magpies in game 4, and didn’t disappoint, producing a fine display to keep St. Paul scoreless over 6 innings. The Magpies offense, meanwhile, kept the Rockets pitching staff under pressure and the runs came regularly and often. They scored in each of the first three innings, culminating in Fernando Martínez’s solo home run in the 3rd. When the impressive Martínez, now batting .302 with 10 RBI in the postseason, went deep for the second time in the 5th, the game was effectively done and dusted right there.

Chigi finished with a stat line of 6 IP, 5 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 8 K and a 7-0 lead. Manny Gallegos allowed a consolation run in the top of the 9th, but it didn’t matter. The only grey mark on an excellent day for the Magpies was that Orlando Gonzáles came out of the game late on with hamstring soreness. Jeremiah Harvey will deputise in tomorrow’s final game in Des Moines, but Gonzáles will return for game 6 in St. Paul.
