The First Inning...

The first pitch occured right on schedule. After an hour drive to beautiful Port Charlotte I made it to the Crabs Stadium. Through Venice I saw a lot of rain and got very nervous, but it is bright and sunny as can be. A perfect night and my view from the press box behind home plate is absolutely PERFECT. The top half of the inning was quick and painless. Starter Frank De Los Santos allowed one infield hit, but promptly picked the runner off 1-3. In the home half of the first, the Crabs went hitless. They didn't go completley without a whimper though. Lead-off batter Isaias Velasquez worked Hammerheads starter Graham Johnson inside and out, fouling off pitches left and right. He finally lined out to deep center field on the 11th pitch of the at-bat. Tim Beckham struck out swinging before Kyeong Kang grounded out to end the inning. Onto inning #2... Score tied up at ZERO.
