Florida State League Championhip Series
This evening my friend Anne and her daughter Emily, attended the fourth game of the 5 game series against the Tampa Yankees for the Florida State League championship. As the final score indicated the Crabs kicked ass and took names and won the game by 3-1.
This was a fantabulous game because the Stone Crabs picthched a perfect game through the first out of the SEVENTH inning. Yes you read it right the Crabs had these smary bastards by the pubic hairs through six full innings and part of the next inning.
The best part of the night was Greg Sexton hitting a three-run homer in the bottom of the 6th inning giving the Crabs everything they needed. In desperation the Yankees scored one run in the top of the 9th inning. Too little too late and there is no way its more deserving than for the Tampa Yankees.
One nice thing was that the umpire behind the plate seemed to actually care about the quality of his calling - totally different from last night's game.
Regardless, the Port Charlotte Stone Crabs will be playing the hapless New York Yankees for he championship of the Florida State League, and they will be doing it on Wednesday night.
Regardless, the Crabs (in their first year of existence) will be playing the Yankees on Crabs home turf. If nothing else it will be one hell of a battle. Wish you could be there to see it!
