The 14th Inning

14th Inning

Tonight was the annual Irish Night at the Mariners and we bought tickets for $11.

Even after 20 years in the States, I still know next to nothing about baseball. I picked up a copy of the Baseball Field Guide before last year’s Irish Night, and found the first chapter very helpful in explaining the basics. I re-read it last night and it helped me follow tonight’s game.

Neither the Mariners nor the White Sox could score a run. Inning after inning the game went on, zero-zero. No one had scored by the bottom of the ninth, so play continued. A tenth inning. An eleventh. We called it a night and took the new Light Rail to Beacon Hill.

The game finished in the 14th inning when the Mariners finally pulled ahead.
