Alex Meyer was also pitching for the visiting Hagerstown Suns. He was selected by the Washington Nationals in the first round (23rd overall) of the 2011 First-Year Player Draft out of the University of Kentucky. Dude throws major gas. The ballpark gun had him in the 97-98 MPH range.
At the game, they did flash on the scoreboard that the Yankees were losing 7-6 in the fifth. And, after the post-game fireworks in Lakewood, we got back to our car just in time to hear Cory Wade turn a 10-7 game into a 14-7 game.
Vent all you want about the Yankees in the comments section. In the meantime, here are some pictures from First Energy Park. Click on the image to enlarge them.
Ryan Howard facing Alex Meyer!
Pork Roll, Egg, & Cheese race. Hey, it’s a “Jersey” thing.
Hey, Lenny’s kid was in the game! (True story.)
Ka-boom! Post-game fireworks.
