12 Innings and Just 1 Run

The early Father's Day gift from Seth came even earlier than expected. The Detroit Tigers arrived in town to play the Angels in Anaheim and the original plan was to go to a game tonight or tomorrow. But Seth went on eBay yesterday morning and had the winning bid on a pair of tickets to the Memorial Day game. So we went last night and had a full view from the right field pavilion seats.

It was a wonderful game if you like fine pitching and fielding. For those who like to see lots of runs, this was not an exciting night. I'm in the "like a close game" group but admit to a good deal of disappointment and frustration when the only run scored in the entire game was scored in the bottom of the 12th inning on a bases-loaded walk.

Thanks again to Seth for a great evening. It was wonderful seeing the Tigers again. And it's turning into quite a baseball year. I can't believe that I've actually seen 4 regular season Major League games before the end of May .
