Mid-Summer Classic

Watched the first eight innings of the ASG. McCann fouled out twice…once on a great sliding catch by Bautista in right. JJ, Kimbrel, and Venters pitched the 6th, 7th, and 8th, all back to back. The huge Padres closer relieved Venters, sprinting in from the bullpen, then stopping with a slide, tearing up the infield grass.

Felder hit a 3 run HR, Adrian Gonzalez a solo shot. Hunter Pence threw out a runner at the plate, and went first to third on a passed ball.

During introductions that weird Giants reliever Brian Wilson gave an extra weird wave, right into the camera. Then when David Ortiz was introduced, he executed the same wave.

Got a new bobblehead that I didn’t have before…another Bobby Cox.

David Norman left for California this morning, along with Jos, Isaac, and Kevin Howes. David was Facebooking every time they entered another state. They were in Mississippi before noon. Becky said they have to make it before a highway closes down.
