Tigers vs Mariners – April 18, 2009

Tonight’s game started out as a great pitchers duel for the first 5+ innings. Both Eric Bedard and Edwin Jackson were throwing great games. Bedard did have a pretty high pitch count though. In the 6th inning Ordonez led off with a single and advanced to 2nd on Lairds single. Brandon Inge singled to right where Ichiro fielded the ball cleanly and fired it to home like a laser, but unlike what we are used to seeing, the run being gunned down so easily, what we saw was the ball sailing and going out of play, thus allowing 2 runs to score. E-9! I don’t think I can recall another game where I have said, “We lost on an Ichiro throwing error!”

Tax Season is finally over…

I am an office manager for Jackson Hewitt Tax Service here in Olympia, WA, and now that tax season is over that means that I can concentrate more on other things like… BASEBALL!
