I caught the last three innings of this atrocity while eating dinner at Carpool in Arlington, and honestly wish I hadn't. Well, at least they didn't throw the game away this-oh, wait...they did. DAMN IT! Patrick Reddington has all the horrible details.
On a more positive note, Sue Dinem at Nationals Prospects has the news from the Nationals' farm system.
The Blue Crabs won again last night, posting a 6-1 victory over the Somerset Patriots in support of lefty starter Craig Anderson's eight scoreless innings. This win puts the Blue Crabs three games up on the Camden Riversharks with nine games left to play in the first half, and they'll be going for the sweep tonight at 5:05 on Meet The Team Sunday.
Baysox made it three straight against the Curve in Altoona last night, winning 5-3; they'll be going for the sweep tonight. Meanwhile, the Keys took the rubber game of the match against the Winson-Salem Dash and will be hosting the Wilmington Blue Rocks tonight at 6 PM. They're having a Lil' Kins giveaway, playing catch on the field before the game, and shooting off some fireworks afterward.
Joe Posnanski's looking to put together a list of the top 100 sports books. Go on over and add your favorites to the list. I'm thinking of doing my own (much shorter) list of favorite baseball books.
Rule 5 Sunday post will be up later.
