BIL Tour: 8/25/10 New Orleans Zephyrs 1, Nashville Sounds 2

Greer Stadium, Nashville, TN

The second game of the tour was a blast, not as much a pitcher's duel as two teams struggling to 'make something happen' offensively (in the old days they called this "manufacturing runs")...

NEW 1 6 0
NAS 2 6 0

The ball game was tied 1-1 until Luis Cruz' sac fly scored Erick Almonte. Interesting to see former Cardinal Brian Barden for NOLA, and hey...Mitch Stetter nearly lost control of his mind, but regained his composure. Milwaukee, don't call him up yet!

We saw our first HR of the tour, and once again both of left the game with more balls than we had when we got there.

Back of the program...I was so confused by the Honey Board Trivia game, I didn't realize that my program was autographed by "Ozzie"...I could have won something else!

  1. Hey Stevo,

    Nice win of the trivia match. Looks like too much fun to me. I am actually here in East Peoria with you Mom and Dad heading for Knoxville later today or tomorrow. HI to Mark.

    Be safe,

    Uncle John
