Game 56: The rubber game

I scheduled this post well in advance and as it goes up, I'll more than likely be at the Stadium already. Hopefully Hiroki Kuroda can keep his home winning streak going. The last time I saw him pitch on Sunday night, earlier this season, he pitched a complete game shutout against the Orioles. Hopefully I didn't just jinx him.

I also hope the weather holds out. There is some scary stuff in the forecast tonight and I don't feel like being stuck in the Bronx until 3 a.m. so they can finish the game.
