Especially when the A’s win!
A terrific game against the Halos this evening. Barry Zito went 7 2/3 innings, getting 4 strikeouts, walking two, and registering a big goose egg on runs. Woohoo! He tosses some wicked looking loopy curve balls that once again gave me faith in his abilities. Well done Barry!
Defensive highlights: Kendall throwing out Figgins in the fifth when Figgins attempted to steal second (the first time Figgins has been caught stealing this year). Payton catching the heart-stopping fly to deep right by Garret Anderson with Figgins and Cabrera on base in the bottom of the eigth inning. Kotsay with a nice catch as he ran into the wall in deep center, robbing Salmon of a likely double or triple.
I love baseball.
