I wasn't at the ballpark last night (Mystics conflict, ending my perfect-attendance streak for this season)...they used to put the baseball scores (and out-of-town WNBA scores of course) up inside the arena, but stopped doing that a couple of years ago (during Caps/Wizards season they used to put out-of-town and other-league scores up inside the arena too, but that's also stopped), so I had no idea how far along the Nats match was when the Mystics finished a bit before 21.00 - got home and immediately put the radio on just as the ninth inning was ending...could have gotten to the ballpark in time to catch the late going (I did have my ticket on me)...BLAST!!!
Yesterday's attendance of 19,662 was the second-lowest ever at Nats Park for a Cardinals visit (lowest was 18,007 on 30th April 2009, also a Thursday)...I guess it must have been the rain threat (and no promos?).
