Plus – Phils offense pounds out double digit hits for second consecutive day. Perfect weather! Fairly quick game ended in 2:41. There was a pre-game Barbecue hosted by Garry Maddox for his Youth Golf & Academics Program, a charitable organization set up support children in troubled city neighborhoods. Chowing down on some great BBQ for $10 towards a charitable cause was much better than the customary ballpark prices.
Meh - $27 ticket, Beers and Parking covered by Friends, $8 Parking. $35 total
Around the League – Mets Lose. Phils pull to within 1.5 games of first place.
Useless Info – So Taguchi, uniform #99, flew out versus Joe Beimel, uniform #97 in the 7th inning. This has to be one of the highest uniformed number hitter-pitcher combinations to ever face each other (196)
On Deck – The Phungo travel team is hopefully headed back to Baltimore this week to catch Jim Thome and those Chicago White Sox.
