Sunday’s Day Game

July 9, 2017

Felix is on the mound and it’s a beautiful day. Keep the complaining at bay.

Wolcott threw out the first pitch. He’s a player many fans don’t recognize in the 1995 photo of Griffey scoring to get the Mariners into the post-season. [I probably have this a bit wrong. I remember 1995, but I am not a historian. )

Felix made it through 6 innings, with a 3-0 lead. At 100 pitches, he is probably done. The A’s are on pitcher number 3. Actually number 62.

Game over. Both teams used 5 pitchers, and the Mariners prevailed, 4-0.

Time for the all-star break. 

And what’s left of the afternoon doing “family arithmetic.”
