I'll hit a few bullet points:
- Matt Scioscia, son of the Angels' manager, plays for Cedar Rapids. He DH'd Saturday, went 1-for-4 , killed a rally with a double play ball.
- Chevy Clarke, the centerfielder I mentioned from Friday's game, had a long double. He also lost a fly ball in the lights in the seventh inning that resulted in a run that tied the game at 6.
- The Peoria infield was just awful defensively. A double error by their third baseman keyed a five-run second inning. Then the pitcher balked home a run ...
OK, enough of the baseball. It was Star Wars Night, so the Kernels were wearing special uniforms. I've never bothered to see any of the Star Wars movies, so I don't really understand the connection, but it was apparently the biggest attendance in CR in five years.
The fireworks after the game probably didn't hurt any either.
Headed home Sunday. The regularly scheduled Pic of the Week post will not be pre-empted. And soon I'll get back to blogging about the Twins. I understand they've been winning since I stopped paying atttention,
