Saturday in Review
At least from me.
Michael and I finished off our series. Despite being up 5-2 when the rain delay started (two weeks ago), a late almost-rally had me worried and I won the second game 5-0. The last game was an unexpected pitcher's duel when Barry Zito inexplicably had a good day, giving up 1 ER and 4 H in the first five. Still, I had no trust and pulled him late in the 6th for Marmol, to keep it a 1-0 game. At the top of the ninth Matt "I'm supposed to be pretty good" Holliday finally did something and hit a solo HR to tie it. Carlos "Me too" Beltran hit a single and stole second, then scored on a Garrett Atkins hit to go up 2-1.
Alas, Marmol was a bit wild, hitting Troy Tulowitzki, then giving up a home run to Robinson Cano, so Michael avoids the sweep. I've now finished my first tour, and am 8-10.
After the series, Michael and I played a few games of Race waiting for people, then one group did Descent while I taught some more bridge. We ended (at least I did) with a game of Tichu.
Thanks to Chris and Mr. Black for hosting.
