Annnd THAT’S the difference between playing a team just running out the schedule (*cough* Phillies *cough*) and playing a team that is desparate for a win like the Tiggers.
Miguel Cabrera was bouncy, bouncy, fun, fun, fun, fun – with two absolute bombs off Matt Wisler, and Pooh and Piglet (Ian Kinsler and Justin Upton) also homered. The game really wasn’t in much doubt, although The Heffalump (Matt Kemp) made it interesting with an 8th inning homer of his own, but it wasn’t enough on this blustery night to find our way out of the 100 Acre Woods.
It has been an interesting season, and the last month has sparked some hope for next year. I’m looking forward to it.
