On Sunday, I went to Reading to see the Fightin Phils (still not a fan of that name) take on the Harrisburg Senators. Reading is always a great place for a ballgame. I think the team does a good job in providing the fan experience.
The game was exciting as Reading and Harrisburg decided that they would each score in the same innings. I was concerned at first because it was 1-1 after one inning, then 3-3 after two innings, but after the Senators took a one-run lead in the top of the 8th, Christian Marrero broke the cycle and hit a grand slam in the bottom of the 8th for a 7-4 Reading win. I was able to see Victor Robles play for the second time this season. He’s the Nationals top prospect and definitely looked good again going 2-4 with a two-run double out of the leadoff position. I will say that I’m not a fan of his Andruw Jones impression when catching the ball where he flicks his glove down as he catches it. I mention Jones because he had the infamous mistake where he did that and dropped the ball. I hope he starts catching the ball with two hands when the situation allows.
