Very good pitcher's duel at the Stadium tonight, Randy Johnson (Arizona) vs. Livan Hernandez. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on who you are) Randy Johnson isn't the dominating pitcher I witnessed a couple of years ago. Johnson gave up 3 runs over the first 2 innings, before he buckled down. He lasted 6 innings, giving up 5 hits and a walk, while striking out just 4. Livan scattered 7 hits and 2 walks over 8 innings, while striking out 8. The game showcased a couple of really neat defensive plays, and a couple of almost great plays. It's obvious why the Diamondbacks are sucking this season, the 'backs were playing with so many young fill-in players, it was almost sad.
In other news:
- The rain got so bad outside that it started dripping on the seat in front of us.
- Two knuckleheads ran onto the field.
- I also saw Erik Stamboulieh and Pedro Avella, both seemed quite happy with life.
Record of the Expos when I'm in attendance: 3-3
