A Long Road

View Larger Map

Game 72: Bulls 10, Mud Hens 11
Season: 39-33
Wrap, Box

Where where you Monday night? Like me, probably driving home from the DBAP. Where were the Bulls? On a couple of buses trekking across the Appalachians, watching the sun rise over their right shoulders, and on to Toledo. Eleven hour trip. Then a 13 inning baseball game that went on and on and on (4-1/2 hours).

Like Adam Sobsey I didn’t check in until very late in the evening. Even then I didn’t have the will to stick with it. But Adam did, so if you’d like to get a run down on the good and the not-so-good of the game, take a look. Suffice to say, in spite of the heroics of Rhyne Hughes (two homers) and Ray Sadler (grand slam) we couldn’t push a winning run across.

Today’s game is on the air as I write. So after their 11-hour trip and 13 inning game, they are back on the field.

I was going to do a longer piece since last night's game was the midpoint of the season (72 games), but will be putting it off for a while.

Odds and Ends:

Winston Abreu watch:
  • Last appearance with the Bulls: June 12
  • First appearance with the Rays: June 16, 1 inning, 1 run, 2 hits, 1 walk
  • Second appearance with the Rays: June 23, 2 2/3 innings, 1 hit, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts (came into the game when the Rays were losing 10-0).
