This Will Make You Laugh
The Mariners High-A affiliate in the California League, the High Desert Mavericks, have scored 14 runs tonight in the same game that center fielder James McOwen set the league record by getting a hit in his 36th consecutive game. McOwen also homered, as did two of his teammates, as the Mavericks lit up Lake Elsinore’s starter for 11 runs in 4 2/3 innings.
They’re losing by 18. I’m not kidding. Here’s the box score. Lake Elsinore is up 32-14 as I type this. Thirty-Two to Fourteen.
Gotta love baseball at altitude.
Update: They weren’t done – the final score was 33-18.
