Peering out of the train car windows, we could
see an eerie mid day fog that hung over the tops of the tall buildings.
But, by game time things were clearing up !
Although Strasburg got the best of most of the Tribe hitters...
the fireworks started in the second inning.
a 100 mph fastball passed Hafner.
Pronk said "no way" as he parked it over the right field wall!
Travis walked the next two at bats against him.
We did did make him (Strasburg) work a little.
95 pitches in 5.1 innings
52 strikes and 43 balls - not a good ratio
Ultimately, 5 walks sent him to the showers.
However, the bullpen couldn't contain the Nationals.
After a valiant attempt in the 9th inning, we lost 9-4.
It was an exciting day though!
