Astro-Girl and I secured tickets for games on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, in the hope of viewing Bidge's 3,000th.
Bide came into this series three away: 2997 hits, all told.
So of course tonight, Bidge comes out tonight, goes 3 for his first 4, and wraps things up as we watch at home on TV.
It was a single he tried--unsuccessfully--to stretch into a double. I'm guessing the only 3000th hit that has resulted in an out.
Right now, 4-4 headed into the tenth.
Oh, and Bidge got 3001, passing--as everyone knows--Roberto Clemente.
