Jonny Venters & Ruben Gotay laughing!
Jonny was ready to come off the DL and the team sent him to Gwinnett to have a few rehab innings. He threw six pitches for three outs last night and was in the dugout in DC by this afternoon. That's my boy. :)
So Susan and I went to cheer on our favorite Brave, and although we got rained out, we had a great time! The G-Braves website didn't have a starter listed and when we entered the gates I asked the ticket taker if he knew who was starting. He replied, "Mr. Rain Delay himself, Julio Teheran." Except... Teheran started yesterday. So I knew that wasn't right. Turns out Jonny pitched the first, then Julio Lugo came in as the "real" starter.
Of course, I took pictures. My pics never come out well at Gwinnett. I'm a little disappointed in these.
lineups and standings
Teheran was presented with an award before the game.
Almost all the players were socks up and everyone seemed to be in good humor.
