5 K, this morning, at the "Run-of-the Mill" race in a small town near Lake Woebegon. Pure Americana. Not a better way, or place, to start the 4th of July Celebration. Gorgeous weather: blue sky, 50 degrees. Heading to Detroit for tonight's Detroit Tiger game.
Porcello! Back to back complete game shut outs. In post game interviews, he's a very "Aw, shucks! guy. Fast game, tonight! (The way baseball ought to be.)

In spite of the best efforts of the bullpen, namely, Ian Krol, the Tigers won. And, the Royals lost. We're back in first place. To take a 5-0 lead and make it 5-4 in an eye blink requires talent. Krol just did not have his stuff. Rick Porcello, quietly, racks up another win--his 9th of the season.
