My wife and I, and a fellow couple, were able to make it to the A’s game last night. Thanks to my wife for winning free tickets at the Ryan Rowland-Smith signing.
The main highlight was Griffey’s homerun. My first in Safeco, after seeing several in the Kingdome. As always, I am thrilled to watch Junior in person. Lopez also hit a home run, but the crowd reaction was not nearly as loud as it was from Griffey.
Another highlight was watching Snell pitch. For the past several years, I followed his progress through the Pirates organization and was thrilled he is now a Mariner. He pitched well. I had a small hope that his no-no for 4.2 innings would last, but my hopes were dashed.
The M’s also won and the “DA” was able to hold onto the save. All in all, a great night! (But where was Ichiro?)
