17July10 Thanks Nate
Thanks to Nate who called me this afternoon to offer me his tickets. While I am sorry that he had a conflict, I am happy to be at the game. He knows that Sue and I are big sports fans and that we would appreciate his offer and put the tickets to good use. Thanks Nate. We had a great time!
This time I finally saw a Twins win after 3 losses in the previous games that I had attended. Whereas the game on Thursday night had Slowey falling behind virtually every batter and causing the game to drag on for over three hours, tonight Pavano pitched quickly and effectively in a 1 hour 52 minute complete game performance. The Twins bested the Whit Sox 3-2 to take a 2-1 game lead in the 4 game series.
The photos from tonight are some of the same as before from around the park, but they also reflect the weather situation of the night. The weather took enough of a break in Minneapolis for the quick game to be played, but the ride home was a bit of an adventure. It was good to find that our home was spared any ill effects from the area’s tornadoes and straight line winds and we made it home safely. The pictures and a ride home video can be seen on my Flickr page, or the video alone can be seen on YouTube.
