The rest of the story

No, Jeff Ridgway did not jump joyfully into the arms of Raul Casanova, but I suppose he would have been entitled. The game ended scoreless, but Hoff’s Hackers held Charlie’s Angels without a hit. Considering the Angels were essentially the regular starting lineup, I guess we’ll have to chalk that up to the old “pitchers ahead of the hitters” thing.
Anyway, here’s how the rest of it played out:
Top of the sixth
Ridgway pitching. Zobrist flies to right. Baldelli grounds to short. Young takes a called third strike.
Bottom of the sixth
Jeff Niemann pitching. Casanova lines to left and Crawford goes to the ground to grab it. Velandia strikes out. Upton takes a called third strike to end it, leaving the only man to collect any hits today—Brendan Harris, 2-for-2—on deck.
