Game 2 of the 8 day home stand did not disappoint. It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon. The Hoppers started out slow, but came out ahead with a 8-7 win. Miss Babe Ruth peed on the field. Great way to end the weekend.
That’s right, I said Miss Babe Ruth peed on the field. Check it out:
She didn’t get ejected like Master Yogi Berra’s famous ejection last year. Most fans probably didn’t even notice, although the bat boy seems to think it’s funny and the ump seems to be contemplating an ejection. You can click the picture to see a larger version.
In other news, the Hoppers continued to taunt Sebastian Valle by putting up pictures of Sebastian The Crab from The Little Mermaid when he was up to bat:
Sausage Race (between 2nd and 3rd): won by Country Sausage
Sumo (middle of 3rd): won by Blue Sumo
Poor Sage never wins, but it looks like she’s having fun. Here’s the whole group of sausages rounding third base:
The game itself was a little worrisome at first. The Hoppers didn’t score until the fifth inning, but they got three runs then. Another two runs in the seventh gave them a comfortable 5-2 lead. The eighth, however, was quite troublesome, as the Blueclaws reassumed the lead (5-6) with four runs scored. The Hoppers responded with three runs of their own, giving them a two run lead. In the ninth, the Blueclaws managed to get a run, but it wasn’t enough and the Hoppers didn’t even have to take the field in the ninth.
Once again, I used iScore to score the game. Here’s how I had it (click each picture of the scoresheet to enbiggen):
All of my pictures from the game are on Facebook. Big thanks go out to my buddy Chris who lent me his telephoto camera lens. I had all sorts of fun taking close up pictures from my seat. You can tell, there are 100 photos of the game that I posted.
