Grizzlies At Raley Field

First of all, Buster Posey did not play, so that was disappointing.
Second of all, Kevin Pucetas was awful. He didn't get out of the second inning. The score was 9-2 when he was pulled out and the game was already over.
Third, there was a celebration of the '89 World Series, from an A's point of view, and that did NOT put me in a good mood. Dave Stewart, Dave "Hindoo" Henderson and Tony Phillips were there. Oooh baby.
On the other hand, it was a gorgeous hot summer night and we had good seats. The Griz scored first. With two outs in the top of the first Frandsen got a single, Guzman walked, a wild pitch moved them over, then Downs drove 2 runs in with a single. However Downs rounded first for some reason and got into a rundown for out number three.
Pucetas gave up 2 runs in the bottom of the frame. So we knew officially we would not have a pitchers duel.
Pucetos gave up 7 runs in the second. I stopped taking notes. He was replaced by Osiris Matos. He and the rest of the bullpen did okay, because the River Cats never scored again the rest of the night. They didn't need to.
The Griz actually ended up out-hitting the River Cats, 13-12. Kevin Frandsen went 4 for 5.
Final score 9-5.

I would have taken a trip to the men's room during the '89 WS ceremony. Then immediately replaced my lost bodily fluid with another pint.
