After two horrible days without any baseball and two sub-optimal days without baseball that counted we’re finally back to normal. Fifteen games last night and games every single day until the end of October at the very least. Ahhhhh.
What the heck got into the water in Houston? Brandon Barnes went 5 for 5 and hit for the cycle. An even better night: Mariners shortstop Brad Miller who hit two homers — a two-run job and a three run job — driving in five. And I’m willing to bet only seven people watched that game.
Which is totally cool. It’s seven more people enjoying baseball than could have on Wednesday or Thursday.
