6:54 pm
the very next pitch brandon belt delivers. they are pumped up, as they approach the lead. the bottom of the 6th inning they will tie it up again, the base hit up the middle to score the run to make it 8-8. broncos by the way with a three- run homer with four rbis. that is just an excellent game with no decision. that's where they are. the bottom of the 8th inning. remember a few years ago when puig came in to the national league? this guy is just a sensation. they would have laughed in your face. they tried hard to unlode them as nobody wanted them. but today they would send them to the minor league to make way for josh reddick and apparently that he would have no problem with accepting the new role as minor leaguer. we will see how that will pan out as we are getting ready for
