Still don’t know why they call him Pronk

C.C. was back on the mound today, gave up two runs in the first inning and immediately everyone lost their minds! Except for me I was doing laundry.

~~ Yankees 4, D-backs 3 ~~

After seeing Sarah off on the train, I planned to come home and do laundry, then watch the game in the evening. Instead I took a nap, I felt really good after, but I still had laundry to do. I come home to the Diamondbacks with a lead. Then in the seventh inning the lead started to unravel, with the bases loaded, their pitcher, Wade Miley, walked Jayson Nix which brought in Ben Francisco. It was either his pitch count or the fact that he walked Nix on 5 pitches that prompted the manager to replace him. The next pitcher had to face Brett Gardner, who brought in the next two runners tying the game at 3.

Then in the bottom of the eighth inning Travis Hafner pitch hit for Francisco and he slammed it over the fence. This prompted the D-Backs announcer to say they got ‘pronked’, and I still don’t know what that means or why he’s called that.

That’s all except for, Kevin Youkilis got hit by pitch, go figure.

First game attended

I finally got to a game. Kasey bought tickets for me and Sarah because she was coming to spend the night. Really was hoping for a great game experience.

~~ Yankees 4, D-backs 2 ~~

It didn’t exactly turn out that way. I got my usual hot sausage on a gluten free roll and Sarah got nachos. They were were kind of soggy and stale, although the cheese had a nice flavor. I finished them for her so she could get pizza. Which she did, after she got ice cream and we both had hot chocolate. You might think that after all that she would get a stomach ache, actually I was the one that ended up with a stomach ache. It was so bad we had to leave.

Nova was o.k., or at least better than the last time. Only gave up 2 runs, when we left during the middle of the 4th the Yankees hadn’t scored yet, Sarah had to visit the ladies room and I was keeping track of the game. That’s how I knew when Robinson Cano hit a home run it was a 3 run home run which put the Yankees in the lead.

After getting home I turned on the TV so I could at least see Mo pitch. So the evening wasn’t a total loss.
