Out For Summer

Left work Tuesday at 1:15 and headed over to Athens. Helped Will pack and load his Jeep. He had a lot of stuff, and we barely had room for everything. He bought someone's small fridge, which turned out to be tiny. Didn't leave Athens until after 6:00 pm. Just before he left he learned his RA assignment had been switched to a brand new dorm. We drove by it. Looks like a red brick hotel. Will had only slept four hours Monday night, having stayed up late studying for finals. Exhausted, he slept the second half of the trip home. Sounds like his grades will be good. Will reports to Camp Highland on May 20, just a week and a half away.

Wednesday afternoon’s series-clinching victory over the Reds had several bright spots. Here are but a few…
Left fielder Evan Gattis threw out the speedy Phillips trying to score on a sac fly. 
Dan Uggla hit two home runs. Like BJ, Uggla’s work with Greg Walker seems to be paying off.
Jaun Francisco hit a grand slam. Fredi wanted to give him two starts against his old team.
Andrelton Simmons had four hits.
Jordan Schafer had three hits, including a stand-up triple.
Mike Minor had a quality start, and got the win. Only gave up one run, I think.
Jason Heyward starts his minor league rehab tomorrow.
BJ Upton is working to revert to his 2008 form, when he hit .300 by hitting to all fields…after his four strikeout game Monday night he has been doing better and better.
