Reset! 3:30 at the DBAP!

After winning three in a row, the Bulls were behind 4-1 last night at Harbor Park in Norfolk, Virginia. The lights in right field had been a problem that was just getting worse. The umps suspended the game in the 7th inning. In a variant of the timelessness of baseball, we are about to be treated to skip in space and time.

At 3:30 pm today, the umpires are going to reset the stage the way it was last night at 9:34. It was the top of the 7th inning. Jeremy Moore had drawn a walk. Wilson Betemit hit a fly ball to right field that was caught for the first out, but Ali Solis reached 1st base on a fielding error by the same right fielder, who may have lost the ball in the darkness. Ray Olmedo was at bat.

That’s how the game will resume. The gameday link will show you the setup as it stood last night. My guess is that Charlie will stick with the lineup except bringing someone in to replace Matt Andriese, who might not have started the 7th anyhow (6 innings, 76 pitches).

Here’s our problem: Do we show up for the 3:30 game, watch the final innings, and then hang out until 5 o’clock for the second game? Or do we listen to the first game and keep with the schedule we already had in mind.

Your/our choice. Should be fun in any circumstance. Today and tomorrow are the last regular season games of the year.
