The fourth man at bat, former NY Yankee Shelley Duncan, thought he drew a walk, but the ump called him out. Shelley took exception to the call. Extreme exception. The ump took exception to Shelley and ejected him. Moments later, the ump also tossed the Clippers manager.
Because of the rain earlier in the day, the field was slippery, and at least three Clippers lost their footing on the wet grass, enabling the Chiefs to run the bases.

Jersey Raffle: Throw-back Thursday
First base coach wave:
- Tug Hulett ignored us in the first, then gave a half-hearted, "oh-do-I-have-to" wave in the second.
- Innings 4 - 7 was our good friend Corey Brown. He heard us. He even heard me say, "Come on, wave!" Dissed.
- Tug was back for the 8th and there was no 9th, because the score was 3-0 Chiefs.
Exciting news of the night: The Nationals are sending Roger Bernadina back to Syracuse. I wonder how the Chiefs will make room for him on the roster. Maybe Corey Brown is wondering the same thing.
Curiosity of the night: Maven was no where to be seen. Even if he sits on the 3rd base side out of the heat or the rain, when things turn "normal" he comes home to Section 207. No one sighted him at the stadium tonight.
