Do the Walk of Fame

Yesterday, Prime and I had the opportunity to head to Milwaukee and take in another Brewers game. We managed to get there early, early enough so we could see this:
Walk of Fame/Wall of Honor ceremony.

The inductees were Prince Fielder, Harry Dalton, Doug Melvin and Geoff Jenkins. The ceremony was pretty cool to watch and it was great to see Prince back on the field at Miller Park again. I freely admit: he was my favorite hitter. It was just fun to watch Prince play.

The guys lining up for a pic. You can see the plaques out on the field but unfortunately, I was too far away to get a clearer shot of them.

The game started at 19:10 and we were up against the Nationals. I don’t think I’ve seen them play all that often and I’m rather glad of that; they took an early lead over the Crew and it was 4 – 0 for a good portion of the game. However, the Crew kept trying to fight their way back, like this:

Bases loaded, but no grand slam, sadly. However, the Brewers did manage to get three runs on the board and in the seventh, tied the game at 4 -4. In the tenth, Saladino managed a sacrifice fly that won it.

Final score in ten innings: Washington Nationals – 4 Milwaukee Brewers – 5. All in all, a damn good game and a helluva way to spend Tuesday night with my husband.


About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
