- watching Jon Rauch blow a big lead. I think Piazza hit one off the facing below the upper deck. Not near Mike Epstein / Frank Howard territory, but it seemed to scare the wits out of the Nats pitchers.
Welch, Rauch did pitch in that game but Chief Cordero gave up the Piazza solo blast and 5 runs in the 8th and 9th
I was in the rightfield mezzanine and the sound of the HR hitting the facing was like a cannon going offhttp://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/WAS/WAS200607090.shtml
