Small Ball- Who Needs It?

BASEBALL

We went to on-field phot day.  I got good pictures of the kids with McClendon, Boesch, Laird, Cabrera, Elmon, Jackson, Dotel, Kelly and Smyly.

The game was an odd one.  The Tigers had stranded 12 runners when I quit counting.  The only runs in the 3-1 victory came from home runs by Dunn, Jackson (deep into section 148 or 149), Fielder (almost off Kell’s name in the deepest part of the park) and Dirks (insurance in the 8th).

Porcello seemed to have the sinker working and the balls seemed to find the fielders without them having to move far.  Dotel, Coke and Benoit pitched pretty well.  Valverde pitched well enough, but allowed 2 base runners and was 3-0 with Beckham, who ended up striking out to end the game.
