I was sitting in the middle of the first base line, about 25 rows up (awesome seats). Memorable game. Gives me chills just thinking about it. Madison, were you there?
In the 6th inning, the crowd started to get antsy...each and every pitch was watched with the utmost anticipation. He almost walked each batter in the 7th (all had a 3 ball count), and in the 9th...a fly ball ended the game.
It was amazing.
FYI- 97 total pitches...He was the first Lefty to pitch a P.G. in the AL history!
And now he can't even go 6 innings and give up only 2 runs.
