Winning.

Fantastic W.

No dramatics.  Effective pitching, timely hits, brilliant defense, a reawakened Hamilton, vintage Feliz.  Good baseball, really good win.

And forgive me for straying off the big league page, but there’s no way I wasn’t going to get this in (in fact, it’s what convinced me to send something out tonight rather than in the morning).

Remember last night’s report, which included this?

“Meanwhile, in Spokane, extremely important righthander David Perez sits tonight and waits, waits for his first official stateside baseball game, which comes tomorrow as he gets the Opening Day nod for the Indians.”

Spokane is in the third inning right now, trailing Salem-Keizer, 1-0.

But here are Perez’s nine outs:

Strikeout swinging.  Strikeout swinging.  Flyout to center.

Strikeout swinging.  Strikeout swinging.  Strikeout swinging.

Strikeout swinging.  Strikeout swinging.  Strikeout swinging.

There’s a walk and three third-inning, groundball singles mixed in, but man.  There’s not a pitcher in the Rangers system I’m more excited about than the 18-year-old Perez.

The 18-year-old.

It’s been a good night of baseball.
