The threat of bad weather and a change in the scheduled pitchers led me to scrap plans on going to the Gwinnett Braves/Indianapolis Indians game last night. It turned out that they played the game with no problem and Indians pitcher Jeremy Powell took a no-hitter into the seventh, only to lose 2-1. Jose Tabata and Pedro Alvarez went a combined 0/7 with 6 K’s. Tonight I have every intention to try again. Brad Lincoln will be on the mound if the weather holds, but right now the forecast is a 40% chance of thunderstorms at game time. This is the last scheduled game of the year between the two teams so I expect they’ll make every effort to play.
UPDATE: Weather report looks great now. (5pm) I’ll be headed to the park shortly!
