Last night was the tonic I needed. The game lasted 3 hours, but was so much fun that I lost track of time.
Yes, it started off poorly (solo home run for the Kernels) and they lead 2-0 after 2. But this time the Chiefs came back. It was 2-1 in the bottom of the 6’th when the Chiefs loaded the bases. One run was walked in (by a reliever) and then a Chief got a bases clearing stand up double down the left field line to extend the lead to 5-2, where it stayed. The same player also robbed the Kernels of an extra bases hit by catching a fly ball just before it could hit the right field wall.
As usual, it wasn’t a big crowd (weeknights usually aren’t).
There is some debate as to whether or not the game itself is the big attraction. I’d say at the fans at the less popular time games are mostly baseball fans; Friday, Saturday and possibly Sunday attracts fans who just like the promotions or outings.
Now major league baseball fans are slightly right of center.

But this makes this incident somewhat head scratching: at a Fresno Grizzly game (AAA) they played a “enemies of freedom” video between the doubleheader games..and listed Rep. Ocasio-Cortez as one of the enemies!
Oddly, I don’t see her praising Kim Jong Un or Putin…the way that President Trump does…
