I didn’t have a big lunch so I was very excited to see what the kitchen staff had cookin’ for tonight. I was pleasantly surprised by seeing Spaghetti and Meatballs on the menu.
The noodles were as expected pretty basic, but my biggest critic comes from the sauce. The taste of the sauce was fine, as the problem comes from the amount of it that was present. There wasn’t any! It was almost criminal how little red sauce they served with the noodles. The meatballs (two in total) were impressive in size and fairly tasty but they were a little dry if I’m being honest.
The off-brand twinkies were amazing too, by the way.
Live Game Notes
Top 1st – Caleb Baragar pitching
Baragar with a quick 1-2-3 after a HYPE introduction coming in from the bullpen.
Tapia F7, Pillar 5-3, Story F9
Score: Giants 0, Rockies 0
Bottom 1st – Castellani
The Giants threaten with 2 outs but Crawford grounds out.
Slater F9, Dick E6, Solano K, Belt BB, Crawford 4-3
Baragar is pulled quickly after giving up the Blackmon double, but Webb handles the bottom of the order with relative ease.
Tapia (an outfielder but DH’ing tonight) doubles in Hampson and then makes Joey Bart look foolish. Tapia had a large lead at second and baited Bart to throw to second – and as soon as he did – Tapia took off for third.
Hillard K, Hampson 1B, Tapia 2B, Pillar 5-3, (Tapia to third after faking out Bart), Story 3U
Score: Rockies 2, Giants 1
Dubon’s HR all but locks up the Giants W.
Dickerson 2B, Solano F9, Belt BB, Crawford Sac F8, (Dick scores), Longoria BB, Dubon HR, Bart K
