4th of July in Frisco

I went to my first and probably only Roughriders game of the season last night.  Every time I go to a game at Dr. Pepper Ballpark I am amazed at how nice that place is for a AA stadium.  All of the patriotic stuff from a Irag War hero throwing out the first pitch to a modern day Andrews Sisters act singing the National Anthem was pretty cool.  The fireworks were good too even though they scared the bejeezus out of my 2 year old daughter.

The game itself was quite a rout with the Riders winning 8-1 behind 8+ strong innings from Michael Ballard.  He started the 9th with a 4-hit shutout (what's up TLT) but clearly looked gassed and gave up a couple more hits and a run before they took him out.  I have to admit that I had never heard of the guy until yesterday afternoon but he really looked impressive.   He doesn't have overwhelming stuff but he had good command and I could see him being a Rheinecker/Murray type that spends time in AAA and makes an occasional emergency start in the majors. 

I was impressed with Andrus more than anybody else.  He walked 3 times and had a single at the plate and made a couple of nice defensive plays.  The thing that struck me most about though him was his speed.  He scored from 1st on a double by Vallejo and he was really flying around the bases.  He's a good.  I also love the minifro that he is sporting...

And here is a picture of Andrus and Borbon before the game.
