Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
April 10, 2007: Columbus Clippers 1, Louisville Bats 0
Another pitchers' duel, this one with the opposite outcome of the day before. It was 0-0 until the 8th inning, when Ricky Stone gave up a triple and a single...which turned out to be the game.
Bubba was not in the lineup, but pinch-hit in the 9th. It was kind of surprising, because there was a lefty on the mound. I guess they were hoping Bubba's ninth-inning clutchitude would overcome the lefty-lefty thing. Alas, it didn't work.
Bubba was the lead off hitter. Ball, ball, called strike...then he hit it really hard, but right to the first baseman.
Bubba is not in the lineup tonight. Again. Perhaps because there's a lefty on the mound.
The weather is rainy in Louisville tonight, but they are planning to play the game. The start time is delayed, though - about 7:20pm.
