    The game seemed to turn on what, from my seat, seemed a horrible HR call by the base umpire in the 4th inning. A ball that hit off the top of the scoreboard in RF (if you didn’t see it, you could tell by the aluminum sound that reverberated throughout the ballpark) was ruled a HR, but should have been a double.

    Also, Frazier may be a great athlete and great hitter, but he’s a BAD shortstop. I’d say the sooner they can get him to a corner outfield spot, the better.
    RN’s own Matt Klinker starts tonight for the Dragons! Good luck Matt.
