Friday Means Fireworks
The score was 1-0 Chiefs when we arrived. Gwynett scored in the top of the 2nd, tying the game.
Hoffpauir's sacrifice in 3rd brought Bynum home. 2-1 Chiefs
The top of the seventh inning, Sandee mentioned the game was a little boring. That's all it took.
In the 7th, pinch-hitter Jim Negrych hit a home rum that also brought Rivero home.
Score now 4-1 Chiefs.
The Gwynett Braves scored off Jeff Mandell to the scent of fresh skunk (we wondered if it was a coincidence) in the top of the 8th.
Syracuse continued their late-inning ways in the bottom of the 8th: Carroll hit a triple with 1 RBI, then Rivero hit a single that brought Carroll home. Final score: 6-2 Chiefs.
Seth wore his socks on the outside tonight. We liked it. We wonder if he thought the change would help him increase his bat power. Players are very superstitious, you know.
Fun moment of the game: Pops and a bunch of men stood in front of us to have a photo taken. We couldn't see the field. So Sandee and I grabbed our bats and stood up so that we're in the pictures, too.
We needed a little fun.
And the lights in the sky after the game weren't the only fireworks at the stadium tonight.
