4’th of July Chiefs baseball

Well, it was not like the days of old..but the Chiefs did draw a crowd of 5000 + for the first time in a long time

The above was at the start of the game; it filled out a bit more than that.

I had a friend to go with.

Oh, the game: it started out promising. The Chiefs got 6 solid innings of pitching from their starter and 2 home runs from the same player:

So the Chiefs took a 3-2 lead going into the 7’th and then… the bullpen. And it was a disaster. The first reliever didn’t last the inning; second one wasn’t much better and by the time the carnage stopped, it was 7-3 Beloit.

But wait, there’s more. Top of the 9’th down 4, give up 4 more..and the game ended 11-3, Beloit. That is 9 runs over 3 innings..

In fairness, the Chiefs ..or rather the Cardinals, promoted several players last week.

Nevertheless, I am glad to see games. And this was 1000 more than last year’s 4’th of July game.
