Ok, I spent the day on the river, got a decent sunburn to start off my summer and now am joining the BF’s family for drinks and dinner. The boys better win for me.

Three in a row! And tonight’s win clinches a series win, with the brooms all getting ready for Sunday!

Things got a bit dicey when Nick Blackburn left the game after 5 innings with back stiffness. Fortunately, the bullpen was rested after getting last night off and Slama, Dumatrait, Hoey, Burnett and Mijares pieced together four innings of one-hit relief pitching.

Alexi Casilla went 4 for 5 with a double, a run scored and a couple of RBI. It would have been hard to imagine this a few weeks ago, but the truth is that Lexi is the guy that’s holding this line up together right now… and for tonight’s performance, he’s our Boyfriend of the Day!
