Baseball makes me wet

Stephen Vogt crosses home plate after hitting go-ahead grand slam in 2nd inning vs Augusta.
I like baseball.

A lot.

It excites me.

No, not that way.

But baseball sometimes does make me wet.

Like tonight.

The Columbus Catfish fell behind the Augusta GreenJackets (Giants) 5-0 on two towering home runs in the 2nd inning.

But this Catfish team don't quit.

They came back with 6 runs in the bottom of the 2nd, capped off by LF Stephen Vogt's grand slam home run off the billboards behind the left field wall that game the Catfish a 6-5 lead.

When the skies quit raining baseball, the raindrops started.

And the lightning.

With one out in the bottom of the 3rd, the umpires had to stop the game. And I got wet. The Wife got wet too.

Baseball does that to us. When it rains, that is.

The game is officially "postponed." That usually means the game will be concluded if it makes a difference in the standings. That would likely only be the case if the Catfish and another team (other than Augusta, who won the 1st half) are within 1/2 game of each other for the 2nd half division title.

The Catfish take the road Saturday for 8 games.
