  1. DAMN!!!! No hitter through 7 and now MLBN is going to break away to show that game in the bottom of the 8th.

  2. Brett Cecil was wearing matching blue glasses and bulbous, fishlike mouthpiece. Effective diversion.

  3. Rays-White Sox is a real pennant-race game. The Yanks are battling the Orioles, but they’re both mopping up against teams playing out the string.

  4. No hits through 8. At least MLBN switched back to the Yanks until Homer pitches the bottom of the 9th.

    • Sheesh, who cares? There have been so many no hitters lately. Anyone who’s interested can catch the highlights.

      • Costello: Now I throw the ball to first base, whoever it is drops the ball, so the guy runs to second. Who picks up the ball and throws it to What. What throws it to I Don’t Know. I Don’t Know throws it back to Tomorrow—a triple play.

        Abbott: Yeah, it could be.

        Costello: Another guy gets up and it’s a long fly ball to Because. Why? I don’t know. He’s on third, and I don’t care!

        Abbott: What was that?

        Costello: I said, I DON’T CARE!

        Abbott: Oh, that’s our shortstop!

  5. Boy, Kay muffed two plays in a row. Can’t see straight. Erasmus picked it off the ground while he’s yelling about a catch, and now claims Kelly Johnson loafed on that bouncer he coralled and got in to home post haste.

  6. Eppley’s Believe It or Not. Tonight, as the Monkey’s and Neil Diamond would say, “I’m a Believer.”

  7. gee, the stolen base was worth the risk, afterall. Bet Ichi was real sure of having it, too, tho you recall an out there a week ago, and another except for poor handling.

  8. Amos Lee has a neat old voice and a good band over on 13, the Artist’s Den. Nice banjo and harmonica, too.
