My first attended Steelers game in over 10 years and my first game at Heinz Field. Great day for football and the Steelers spanked the Browns 28-10. Doc and I went and had a great time. Thanks for the tickets Bob!

Rain came around 3 but luckily not enough to hurt the field. The championship game went on as scheduled. The diamondbacks came back with the same two pitchers. They seemed to not throw as hard as Monday night. The Cardinals went with a rested Devon Lee who threw 3 shutout innings. The Cardinals were able to get 3 runs in the two innings their starter went. They had to go to their second pitcher an inning early. They would have to find someone else to pitch after their hammer. He shut us down and going to the 6th, the Cards led 3-1. In the top of the sixth, the Cardinals plated 4 runs (three coming on a bases clearing double by Mason Hall). The Hall's drove in all 7 runs (Austin drove in the other 4). Trey gave up 1 run in two innings of relief and Cameron shut the door with a scoreless 6th to wrap up the win 7-1! Great job boys!!
The Diamondbacks won their game in the losers bracket and came back out to face the Cardinals again. Although now the Cardinals would have to be beaten twice to take the title. The Diamondbacks put the ball in play a little and the Cards kicked the ball around some and fell 9-5 setting up a winner take all on Tuesday 10/5. Good thing the Cards used plenty of pitchers during the season instead of hanging on 2.
Great game by the Cards. Devon started it in the first with a mammoth 2 run bomb. The pitching took over from there. Trey Henry and Cameron combined to throw a no hitter and the Cards won 3-0 advancing to the Championship game!
