IRONPIGS TODAY: “Un-Abel” 5/18/2016

“They call it a free pass,

but in life and baseball,

You’ve still got to step up to the plate to get walked.”

Darnell Sweeney came home on a botched intentional walk as Abel De Los Santos went Aumont, and the IronPigs walked right off.  Sweeney, Venable, and Hunter each had two hits–Hunter a HR to lead off the first for the ‘Pigs.

A win is a win–even if I wasn’t there to see it.  I hate missing games, but it was worth it!  I’m only one guy–I’m sure they didn’t miss me.


Link of the Day

Tommy Joseph had a HR and went 3-for-4 last night in the Phillies win.  Google that and read all the articles!  🙂


See you at the park,

  1. Tommy Joseph really had the best possible start to his Major League career, going 3-4 and hitting his first MLB homerun. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy — and a guy who’s faced challenges the last couple of years. I’m so happy for him!
