Game 68: Birthday Party vs….baseball?

The little one's birthday was yesterday, and his birthday party is today. Therefore, this is the game log you're getting. Although, in compete fairness, with the ugly way the team has been playing, and the even uglier way that the team has been run (training staff, personel decisions, etc) it's pretty unlikely that I would've put much more effort into it, anyway.

Nolasco takes on Pineda. If that sounds line a recipe for a good game...then your standards are probably in need of some calibration.

If I do happen to get any time to watch sports today, it'll be the US Open.

Game 153 – Mariners 5, Twins 4

Only nine more games, thank god. The Twins made it interesting in the 9th, before channeling the early 2010 Twins to remind us all they are the 2011 Twins:

• League pitching.
• Tosoni pinch-hitting for Butera.
• Tosoni singled to center.
• Revere singled to center, Tosoni to second.
• Plouffe safe at first on a sacrifice plus pitcher League's throwing error, Tosoni to third, Revere to second.
• Cuddyer struck out.
• Parmelee grounded into fielder's choice, first baseman Carp to catcher Olivo, Tosoni out, Revere to third, Plouffe to second.
• Valencia grounded out, third baseman Liddi to first baseman Carp.

Yuck. That's ten losses in a row. Bring on the Mark Appel era.
