More Boring - No Exciting - Minor League Baseball!

So the hometown Potomac Nationals are playing the Myrtle Beach Pelicans for the League Championship. Best of five, and the first two games were down south. The P-Nats took the first game 15-0, the Pelicans evened it up 6-4, before heading north to continue the series.

Last night, in a back and forth game, the Pelicans were leading 7-4 in the bottom of the ninth. With two outs, the P-Nats combined a walk, a single and a three-run homer to tie the game.

In the bottom of the tenth, the P-Nats loaded the bases and the Pelicans pitcher walked home the winning run!

All told, the P-Nats pitchers struck out 18 Pelicans during the game.

For all that excitement, Liz and I weren't there. She had oral surgery yesterday and wasn't in any shape to enjoy the game. We're not going tonight either. That sucks, but in the grand scheme of things, it's no biggie.

Now, tonight the P-Nats can clinch. Oh yeah.

Oh, poor Liz. Tell her I hope she's feeling better soon.
If Myrtle Beach comes back tonight we'll be down tomorrow, but as much as I'd like to see another game, I'd rather see the Nats wrap it up. (Looking good right now, 8-1 in the 7th.)
