Thoughts and pictures of my local minor league baseball team the New York Penn League Connecticut Tigers; a Detriot farm team. We'll still be looking at former Navigators/Defenders players along the way....

Defs win in 13 innings 6-5.....

in a game that lasted 4 hours and a minute. Brett Pill doubles in Brock Bond who had singled as CT comes back from a 5-0 deficit to win. Pill endes up with 3 RBIs on a 3 for 6 night that included a double and homer.
Mitch Livley gets the win to improve to 3-0 with a 0.78 ERA. Lively went the last 3.2 IP giving up two hits and getting 5 Ks.

Misc fan notes: Spent a lot of time tonight chatting up Tom, Bob, Brendon, GB and chilling up in Lou's watching Giants/Pat pre season football as opposed to watching the early innings. Peaceful night at the park, full moon......
Pic is of starter Geivy Garcia. They are wearing those camo uniforms more and more...

Nice come from behind win especially considering the Defenders already have the division in hand
I will make my final trip of the Reg.Season to Dodd on Sunday, my friend had an extra Sky Box ticket, and I plan on making it to the playoffs
Anyone have the dates for the games at Dodd?
