The Brandon Larson Honorary Star Of The Night
Nick Senzel - 1 for 3, 1 HR, 2 BB, 1 SB
Senzel scared the shit out of us this weekend by jamming up his shoulder and getting pulled from a game. I think there were x-rays and stuff, but it’s all real scary and I didn’t like it. Not at all. I was scared. Everything is fine though and none of us have any reason to be scared. Senzel brought his professional approach to the plate tonight, and I love dingers and walks. He also showed off his plus wheels. The dinger didn’t go over the fence. He hustled out an inside the park round tripper and stole a base for good measure! Hooray! You don’t need no shoulder to run.
Here’s the video. I’m still not sure what the hell was going on in the outfield. I think they thought it was gone off the bat.
