And this is the picture of the actual swing on that grand slam...
Kind of noisy- the light is gone this time of year at the night games. (low light= more noise on your digital camera)
Tonight is the last home game of the regular season, so I won't bore you political junkies with baseball stuff anymore pretty soon. Humor me for now.
COMSTOCK PARK – Cameron Maybin jump started the Whitecaps offense and became the first Whitecap ever to hit two grand slams in one season as West Michigan rolled past Lansing, 9-3.
Following a lead off single by Cory Middleton and back-to-back walks issued by Hector Delgadillo, Maybin poked the slam down the left field line to put West Michigan on top, 4-1 in the bottom of the third.
Maybin also hit a grand slam at Dayton on June 10. It was the fourth Whitecaps grand slam of the season.
Three Whitecaps hit sacrifice flies in the game: Middleton, Mike Hernandez and Will Rhymes as West Michigan moved to an 8-1 lead after six innings.
Matt O’Brien pitched seven innings as the starting pitcher for the ‘Caps and allowed just one run on eight hits and a walk to earn his second victory in three starts for West Michigan. Paul Hammond earned his first Midwest League save by retiring all four batters he faced to end the game.
Playoffs begin Sept. 7th. After that, they will be gone and I will be sad and then I will have to go back to yelling at the Republicans. Or the Lions. Whoever bugs me the most.
