Pudge Catches Another

I know that I've been asked not to blog about baseball. But today was cool. The Detroit Tigers' Justin Verlander threw a no-hitter against the Milwaukee Brewers. And the Angels' Kelvin Escobar got 14 strikeouts . . . in 6 innings. That means that out of 18 outs, 14 were by strikeout.

And in other news, my high school classmate Zach Duke got his third win of the season. The happiness I feel for Frances*, tho, is negated a little by the fact that he beat my Rangers. Ah well--way to go Zach.

That's what I call a cool day for pitching.




*For some odd reason, in our senior physics class, I called Mr. Duke "Frances" and he called me "Sally." That's my claim to fame.

Check your homophones again...tsk tsk Alico/Avacado. Maybe that's a reason not to blog about baseball. :)

Well now that you fixed it my last comment looks dumb...and mean. Thanks.

In the interest of maintaining my own integrity, I point out for the record that I had initially written "Verlander through a no-hitter." The Mysterious V(erlander?) is not mean, and I do have a problem mistyping my homophones.

Now I've cursed you all!
