Most of the Mariner starters took the day off, but Ken Griffey Jr. was the designated hitter for the day. He hit in to a double play the first time up, a weak liner to short on his next trip to the plate, then he put his sweet swing on a pitch and hit a two run homer down the right field line, over the 340 marker. Despite his efforts, the Ms still lost 6 - 5.
Ken and I spent the evening smoking cigars, having a drink, eating, and sitting by the pool shooting the breeze. Ken even jumped in the pool for a quick cool down. It was very pleasant. I'm glad he took an extra day to visit me.
