I don't get Chapman in the 10th and not in the 8th. But then I just got home for the last two innings.
The offense is very, very hard to watch when it is slumping. I know they will score runs, but man its brutal to watch a team wide slump. I only got to see 2 innings of hacking, but man, the last guy, who has now struck out what, 6 in a row. Those were all balls, every last curve was not in the zone. They hacked away.
Not defending the guys that were up there hacking, but this umpire did not help matters. He was calling balls strikes all night and obvious strikes balls as well. For both sides. There were plenty of times, I was about to walk to my kitchen, because of strike 3, inning over. Nope, ball 2, then 3, then a walk and then we know the rest.
