Mickey Rivers had a nice day at the plate in an ugly loss.  He went two for five with a homerun, two runs and two RBIs.

It’s like the second coming of Reggie Jackson with my new demarini bat.  I hit two out of the park the other night.  Baseball Rampage is a great one stop source for everything related to baseball and I also picked up my kid a Nokona glove.
