One play really exemplified this game tonight between the Spirit and the Grays. In the bottom of the 7th inning, with 2 outs in the inning and the Spirit up 3-0, Mayke Cabrera tapped a grounder right at Chris Farley. Farley picked up the ball and uncorked a horrific throw to first base, sailing well past Alex Trezza and allowing Ben Tinius to score from 2nd base. At the end of the play, Farley let out a loud, very audible “F-bomb” which was clearly heard by all 15 or so people in attendance.
All in all, it wasn’t pretty, but the Spirit got the job done --- an improvement from the last series against these same Grays, wherein it wasn’t pretty AND they lost. So it’s a starting point. The Spirit are now right in the thick of the CanAm race despite their rough start to the year. It’s on to
Oh, another note: The PA announcer was actually good --- very good --- tonight. I'm guessing it's because of the lack of people in attendance - he decided to tone it down and do his job.
