9th Inning Heroics; Durham Bulls Are National Champions


Durham Bulls 10; Reno Aces 6; Box

If you did not get a chance to watch last night's game, you missed a thriller. At first, it looked like the Bulls were going to run away with the game the way they did on Saturday night. But the Aces caught up. After masterful middle innings by both relievers, the Aces got a home run in the bottom of the 8th and it looked like the end. 

But ... top of the 9th ... Aces reliever goes off-script and walks two batters. Double brings in a run, single brings in a run, homer brings in three runs. Bulls reliever slams the door. The Bulls are the national champions!

Very, very pleased to be able to listen to Patrick Kinas & Scott Pose broadcast the final game. They did a spectacular job of creating the illusion that they were at the game. I turned off the MiLB sound, fiddled with the timing to get them in synch with the feed, and thoroughly enjoyed their insights and commentary. They have done a really, really good job this year. We are fortunate to have them in the booth. Note: is it a rumor that Brady Williams won't be back?

This was a good team this year. In particular, was how they stayed with every game, and behaved as a team (at least as far as I could see). This was a group of young men who obviously like playing baseball. And I certainly enjoyed watching them play.
