For the first time in 2 weeks, my much better half, Sweet Levonia, called for a little bingo...and Hewett delivered. I'm telling ya, boys, Levonia is a savant!

Hewitt has had a huge game. Key at bat with the bases loaded. Just stroked a no doubt single.

Followed by a beautiful safety squeeze by Vastine. Diaz then ropes a hit. It’s 6-2. Man on third - we need to get him home.

Inning ending double play leaves it at 6-2.

Let’s hope the strike zone doesn’t shrink with us ahead. We really need this.

And Futrell opens by hitting the first two. Scheech.

A little appreciation for Austin and Polk. Both having really big games when we had to have one.

Ditto for Hewitt and Thompson - but i already praised them.

Consider Austin - learning first base all year, for this game goes to second… starts the critical double play that ended the sixth. It was a bang-bang play - not an easy one. Polk had a diving catch himself.

Espy waiting on a curve and then driving it to LF for a 2-out, 2-run single. Nice piece of hitting. Oh the what coulda beens for this team with a more disciplined, season long approach to hitting.
