Mustangs Bomb Ghosts in 4th: Rain and Hail Subdue Both in 5th



Soon after I took this picture a few drops of rain were felt along with a lot of grumbling in clouds with some lightning as well. I decided it was time to leave as my car was parked in the far reaches of the Deaconness Medical Center parking lots. I just made it to the car in time, fortunately the Mustangs had retired the Ghosts in the top of the 5th, making it an official game. The Ghosts just couldn't get the Mustangs out in the bottom of the 4th, not a lot of power, just a lot balls just eluding the infielders, some bleeders in the infield, some wild pitches, a balk and the result is 9 runs. Very discouraging if you are a Ghost.

While the Mustangs were batting in the bottom of the 5th they were deluged with both rain and hail and thus they called the game, at least for awhile, at 8:36pm according to Joe Bloch, official radio guy for the Mustangs and the best one we've had in a long time. They don't have a ten-run rule in this league but maybe they should. And according to the Mustangs website it was called a game fairly early. The Mustangs are on the road for the next week. The Great Falls Voyagers not surprisingly beat up on the Idaho Falls Chukars and thus are the winners of the first half of the season. That means the Mustangs need to continue to play as well as they have been recently through the rest of the season in order to get into the playoffs.

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
