We just got back from a jolly outing to Raley Field in West Sac. We were wearing shorts and t-shirts and were beginning to get a wee bit cold, and the home team was up 7-0, so we split after 6 innings, because we're all old fogeys who just want to get to bed at a reasonable hour.
Either the A's AAA team is a hitting juggernaut or the pitchers for The Oklahoma City Redhawks suck.
Raley Field is a swell ballpark, modern and clean. It was my 3rd game there; #1 for Brother Jon.
The right fielder for O.C. made a spectacular catch early when the sun was still glaring into that field. He was running almost straight out and snagged a ball over his head right out of the sun.
In the afternoon of course we had watched the Giants romp in Houston. I haven't checked the box score yet but it seemed like everyone was hitting. Pablo's still hot, FSanchez also. Rowand's doing well, and how about that grand slam by Eli Whiteside?
And I say that a meaningless single late in a one-sided game counts as a CLUTCH hit when it keeps alive a 12 game hitting streak. Hooray for Eugenio Velez.
And the return of Joe Martinez guaranteed a big feel-good day. He's our 5th starter until someone else is.
