Marathon Baseball/Marathon Storm Systems
More details on my new Western Ohio weather blog at:
Centerville, Ohio...Hal outruns the storms
Other towns were hit worse, and some of the fantastic damage reports can be found at WHIO~TV:
It was a Hell of a ride last night....
The Reds Lose...in 19 innings__
While all that drama was going on, our storms, at least the first batch, was heading east and north...Mom decided to head for home, so I kicked back, watched the Reds, the Stanley Cup, and WHIO, with remote in hand to see where the action was best.
The Reds looked like they have of late...and after a hosing by the first base umpire, some stupid base running by Brandon Phillips, and some unwise swings when they had the Phillies pitchers down...the score stood 4-4 heading into the bottom of the 18th inning...the major storms passed and I headed for bed...the Reds? Well they couldn't hit a non-pitcher(Philadelphia was out of bullpen hurlers)..and lost in the 19th inning...5-4. Ugly road trip, as they appear destined to fall out of the NL Central race by early June, if this keeps up. They play the final of the 4 game series this afternoon in Philly...both team could be exhausted.
The Stanley Cup continues to be a great show, despite having no teams left to root for or against....Tampa Bay defeated Boston last night to tie the Eastern series at 3 games each....tomorrow they head back to Taxyer2shits and the winner will face off against Vancouver in the Finals starting this coming week...Go Lightning..there I've picked a team to root for.
In the Big Ten Baseball Tournament in Columbus, Ohio State scored 5 runs in the bottom of the 8th to stay in the winner's bracket with a 5-3 win over Minnesota...they play again tonight, weather permitting....be sure to stop by the new Weather Blog for more photos and details of last nights storms:
Photos-Dark Clouds roll through Mercer County, Ohio, we were spared the worst of the 3 major storm fronts yesterday and last night....Hal's Hail, bigger than a quarter, but smaller than the Softball size stuff in Bellbrook....and his car(double click for dents) have getting "Stoned" in Centerville...the trees took a beating as well. The Reds sink in 19 innings...they are now 1 up and 6 down on an ugly road trip...
