Home sweet home
I am so lucky and fortunate to have season tickets. And believe me, I don’t take it for granted. PNC Park has quickly been my 2nd home this summer. (More so, than ever)
Everytime I am at the ballpark, I feel like a little kid again.
Okay. That’s not me. But that’s exactly how I feel.
Oh, yes. I just embarrased myself. Haha I look like such a dork. But I love this picture. I started out playing 2B but was converted to a pitcher soon after.
The phightin phils are in the burgh for a four game series. It’s the only time they will be town the whole season.
Here is today’s Pitching Matchup:
Cole Hamels vs Daniel McCutchen
6-6 4.08 ERA 0-3 11.00 ERA
His last start against the Blue Jays This is Daniel’s 4th start, his 2nd since
didn’t go so well. He allowed 9 R in being recalled. There’s a lot of pressure
5 innings, including 3 HR. on him to make a good start. Unless he
dazzles he could be back in AAA once
Zack Duke comes off the DL.
