Righty gets to see a Sano Grand Slam , HR 15
Now 49 rbi's.
Yeah, that was exciting. It was a no doubter too. I was not optimistic when he fell behind 0-2. Sano took a couple balls to even the count before the pitcher hung a breaking ball. As soon as he hit it I made it clear I was not cheering for the home team. The wind was blowing out but it did not matter for 3 of the 4 HR's that were hit in this game. Unfortunately for the Snappers, the wind was involved when the Timber Rattlers' Brandon Macias hit a 3 run shot in the 7th to tie the game. If there was no wind this ball wouldn't have made it to the warning track, but what are you gonna do...
It was not all good for Sano, he struck out twice and hit into a 1-6-3 DP in the 9th. But the GS certainly makes up for that.
Hopefully I'll be able to make another road trip next year. I would really be temped if Buxton is on the team but I have a feeling he will be playing for the Etwins next year.
