Game 5: Cleveland 5 KRAKENS 3 (2-3)

The CLeveland Buckeyes went up 5-0 thanks to 3 homers including yet another by Andrew McCutchen (he eats Kraken pitching like whales eat krill). Coney Island's relievers pitched well but it was just a case of closing the barn door after the horse had left. The Krakens threatened and Scott Hairston came to the plate as the tying run in the bottom of the 9th but Ryan Cook shut him out to give the Buckeyes the series. 

Overall a disappointing series for the Krakens. The starting pitching was inconsistent, the bullpen overused and the promised hitting explosion has yet to materialize. J.J. Hardy wen 0-14, A.J. Ellis 2-19 and leadoff man Ben Revere 3-22. Kudos to Josh "The Willing Hammer" Willingham who hit 438/813/571.
