Salt Lake 4, Beavers 2

Went to my first Portland Beavers game tonight, at PGE Park. What a great place to spend a beautiful summer evening! I’ll have to fit a few more games in before the season ends.

The game got off to a fast start, with Salt Lake scoring three runs in the top of the first. Portland loaded the bases with none out in the bottom of the frame, but only scored one run out of it. After that, the game settled down into a pitcher’s rhythm, and Portland went down fairly quietly.

I can’t believe more people don’t go to Beavers games. Nine bucks buys a seat behind first base and nine innings of high-quality baseball—a pretty good deal—but the announced attendance was only about 4900, and there couldn’t have been half that many people actually in the park.
