My last game in Seattle I went solo — my Mom hadn’t decided to come along until after I had already purchased my 9th row behind home plate seat. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the best game for being a Twins fan… other than two solo homeruns by Washington native Ryan Doumit, the Twins generated no offense. By contrast, the Mariners scored three in the first, one in the second, and a fifth run in the fourth to more or less put the game away early.
But it was a gorgeous day for baseball and my view of the game couldn’t be beat. Afterwards, I went up to the upper deck and saw Mt. Rainier, which was in full view for the first time all weekend. Seattle — it’s a lovely town. If only the Twins had decided to play a bit better, the weekend would have been perfect.
