It was the perfect night for a ballgame. No rain. Sunny. Warm. July. Finally. TV Stevie bought me a Molsons and a Dinosaur pulled-pork sandwich. Awesome.
Before the game, Tug Hulett and Chris Marrero were signing autographs for fans over by the dugout. I love watching the players interact with the kids like that.
Confirming last night's speculation, Ankiel is back with the Nats and Detwiler was called up.
BTW, the Chiefs are having a Patriotic Picnic on Monday.
FIRST BASE COACH CHEER
- Gregor Blanco grinned and waved
- I missed Michael Aubrey both times he coached first
- Tug waved, too.
- No first base coach in the ninth inning
JERSEY RAFFLE: Pink. I bought 10 tickets. I still didn't win.
A little kid -- maybe two or three -- really wanted my bat-shaped rattle. Twice.
There was a group of adolescent girls sitting in section 107 who were rowdy in a funny way. They really loved Scooch and Pops.

Chris Marrero at first base is a true team player. Once first base is out of the action, Chris is ready to help where he's needed, backing up the pitcher, catcher, second baseman, right fielder. We see him everywhere. YAY CHRIS MARRERO!
