Night at the Ballpark

Taylor and I went to the Roadrunners game last night. It has been a couple of years since we went to a baseball game, so we felt we needed to catch back up.
I had a Bratwurst and Taylor had a chicken Sandwich. Then we had Nachos and then Ice Cream, it was great!
The game was going pretty well, the team was up 4-1, then the wind kicked in and by the bottom of the fourth, it started to sprinkle, I was hoping that the team could hold onto the lead and then the game could end in a rain delay. At the middle of the 5th, the Roadrunners lead 6-5 and the rain was coming down pretty hard. But then it stopped and everything went downhill from there.
The starting pitcher for the Roadrunners got tired and started walking batters more than usual, they replaced him and the relief pitchers started walking almost everyone. Taylor has early morning soccer conditioning and I go to work early, so as it was nearly 10:00pm and only in the top of the 7th, we decided it was time to go home. As we listened to the game on the ride home, they walked several straight and suddenly the score was 10-6 for the bad guys, what a waste. The Roadrunners eventually lost 10-8. As we drove home, we drove into the rain so it was a nice cool night.

The Crowd, as usual was very small, even though they were offering kids free with paying adults (which BTW, doesn't apply to teenagers we found out) The ones that were there were having fun, until the rain of course, then it was basically only kids and the die-hards.
But we had a fun night!
