Amazing Night at the Uht

Yes, it was the last buck night of the season, and yes, we got pretty drunk, and no I didn't spend a lot of money to get pretty drunk, so that was all good. And it was beautiful out, and we watched the last 5 innings from the first row directly behind home plate...and the Seawolves, after giving up 7 runs in the top of the first inning, yes, Bowie's first nine hitters all reached base, the Seawolves came back to win 10-7. Amazing game.

Couple of notes:
  • Erie starter Wilsen Palacios got his 9th win of the season, despite giving up 7 earned runs in the first. He threw 101 pitches and came out after the fifth, by which time the Seawolves had scored 9 earned runs off the Bowie starter.
  • Dean Green and Stephen Moya, Erie's two best hitters, went a combined 7 for nine, with Moya mashing 3 doubles, and Green hitting a home run. Both are lefties. Moya now has 102 RBI in 127 games. Seems like a likely Sept. call up for the Tigers. His downside seems to be 152 strikeouts and only 20 walks. Not sure how that will play in the major leagues.
Oh, yes and Jim Kelly is being critical of the Bills quarterback play, and I really couldn't agree with him more. He echoes my thoughts the EJ is a bright and nice guy, and everyone seems to like him, but on the field, he is just not (yet?) getting the job done.
