Soggy In the Middle

Backyard apple blossoms

It was a beautiful day here, cool and sunny. The apple tree outside my kitchen window is in full bloom, and gorgeous. But it was wet in the midwest. Both the Yankees (playing in Detroit) and the Louisville Bats were rained out today.

The Reds, playing the Mets in New York, probably wished they were rained out. Just about everything that can go wrong for them has gone wrong. When they're hitting, their pitching is terrible. When they're pitching well, they can't hit. Their defense is underwhelming. And today, they even batted out of order - the first time I've ever seen that in a pro game.

Andy Phillips' hitting streak is still going. It's at 13 now, the longest active streak in the IL. The Bats lost on Friday, but Andy went 1 for 4, keeping the streak alive. Yesterday, phenom Homer Bailey had a terrible day, giving up 11 hits, 2 walks, and 7 runs (6 earned) in only 4.1 innings. But the Bats still won, helped by home runs by Paul Janish and Jay Bruce. Andy went 2 for 5 with a 2-RBI double.
