Mariners batting: Ichiro Suzuki was everything the sportscasters describe him as - a major newsmaker, who went 3-for-4 with two doubles, three runs, and a stolen base. Raul Ibanez went 3-for-3 with a run scored, and Jose Vidro went 1-for-4 with 2 sacrifice flies and 2 RBIs.
Padres batting: Adrian Gonzalez went 2-for-5 with two doubles and a run scored, while the catcher Bard went 2-for-3 with an RBI, but he was also thrown out when he overran first base, which was mainly stupidity on his part. One of the best parts of the game came in the bottom of the ninth, Mariners 6, Padres 4, Mitch Headley up to bat. Right before he came to the plate, I remarked offhand that I could feel it and that he was going to hit a 2-run home run right then. AND HE DID! I called that bad boy, which tied the game and sent it into extra innings!
Mariners pitching: Miguel Batista went 6.0 innings, allowed 3 runs on seven
hits, and struck out 7.
Beyond that, the game was awesome, ending in a 6-6 tie (apparently known as 'kissing your sister'), and we left at just past 10pm in the beautiful 75-degree night air. After the game, it was too early to just go back to Flagstaff right away, so we decided to hit up the Big Bang, a dueling piano bar on Mill Avenue on the ASU campus. We were there for about 2 hours listening to them jam out to everything from piano-played rap (an interesting combination to say the least) to 80's rock-and-roll to hip-hop tunes and everything in between. After that, we were all pretty exhausted, so we drove back to Flag, and crashed into bed around 4am.
That was pretty much my Spring Break adventure, the rest of the time being spent sleeping, watching the rest of Season 4 of "24" and being on call in my building for 72-hours. Now it's back to the grindstone, and an exam on Monday (today) for which I am cursing the name of my professor, a paper tomorrow, and another paper Wednesday. Thank God I only have about 7 weeks left until I'm done with school, because Senioritis has hit me BAD!
