What an ending today as the Naturals nearly blew a 6-run lead in the 9th, but they throw out the tying run at the plate to end the game! To me, it was more exciting than a walk-off win at home would be because it looked like it was turning into a sure loss and then the team made a great play to get a win.
Before the game, Ed Lucas was as happy as I’ve ever seen him.
Why? Because he got to bat leadoff today, the only place in the order he had never batted in his baseball career. Congrats to Ed for achieving this distinct but never tracked milestone. By the way, he went 2-5 with a double and a triple. The guy can flat out hit.
That’s all for now. Naturals and Travs again tomorrow night at 5:30.
