19 innings. Two complete baseball games in one. All for a loss. A dismal ending as I was packing my suitcase for the trip to Pittsburgh Monday morning. I was totally spent after watching the game. I cannot imagine how the players feel. Bad news: Sanchez and Soria are on the DL. Price pitched well. Only to see the lead become a tie. Welcome to the "club" said JV, Porcello, Scherzer, Sanchez, et al....
In the early morning fog, 5K in 25'16".
This morning, 4.5 miles at a 8:08 pace. Really, really good for me. I wish that I could maintain a pace like that on a long run. Oh well, with my wretched arthritic hip, I'll take anything. I have been diligent about doing a thorough routine of stretches before and after the run. This has helped significantly. I miss running on the sandy trails at music camp.
I'm hoping that the Tiger bats were shipped, by mistake to Toronto. They certainly were not in New York! Porcello pitched well enough to keep us in the game. But.... Rick's family are all Met fans. Last year, or maybe it was the year before, the Tigers played the Mets and Rick was pitching. He told the press, "My family is here. But, not to cheer for me." It was neat to see Mr. and Mrs. Leyland, as incognito fans, at the game--sitting in the posh seats. I'm hoping...
Hunter: nothing broken. Just a bad bruise. Painful, but thank goodness it is only that. He will be day-to-day.Yesterday, on the blah, blah,blah sports radio, callers were complaining about Alex Avila's lack of presence as a batter at the plate. Uh, he hit the home run in the 12th inning that saved the day.David Price was everything we thought he was going to be. When he and his dog, Astro, arrive in Detroit, there certainly will be a celebration.
Porcello is forgotten in nearly every discussion of Tiger pitching. Yet, quietly, he racks up the wins. One of the Freep writers commented that Frederick, during games when he is not pitching, has a notebook where he notates what he sees in pitchers and batters. A serious student of the game, that Porcello.
This morning, 3 miles in under 24 minutes. For me, a darn good pace. I read the following, today, and winced: "Incurable is your wound, grievous your bruise; there is none to plead your cause, no remedy for your running sore, no healing for you." -Jeremiah 30:12-13
Tomorrow, in Yankee Stadium: "The Price Is Right". I love this:
Ha! This is not my normal speed--though I wish it were! On the 4th of July 5K, I ran a plodding 9'+ mile. I am just lucky to be running. (Arthritis in my wretched hip.)
Thanks for the tip. It looks great!!
