A Beautiful Night for Ugly Baseball

The lovely Robin and I got to attend a Reds game last night with a half dozen friends.
I got to see the Reds score eight runs in an inning for the first time this year. Got to see Billy Hamilton steal a base. Got to see Devin Mesoraco scorch a ball out of the park. Got to see Jay Bruce homer too. Got to see Aroldis Chapman throw a 102 mph fastball. Got to see thirteen-year minor leaguer Jumbo Diaz make his major league debut. Got to eat a frozen chocolate malt.
Unfortunately, I also got to see seven Reds pitchers, none of whom were on their game, and a losing Reds effort.

But otherwise a beautiful night for baseball. And no play review. So it could've been worse.
