“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.

It’s “Education Day” #2 as we go at 10:35AM–Doors 9:15AM, Club 9:00AM
RHP Zach Eflin (4-0, 2.79) is on the mound for the Pigs, to face RHP Paolo Espino (1-3, 3.22) as Syracuse gets away today.
Cap of the Day: It’s gonna be blue. Probably stars/stripes bacon.
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.

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,
