After heavy, heavy rain, the Mudcats decided to go ahead and do the firework show before the game resumes. A halftime show, if you will. So The long blast show commences and there is cardboard all over the field. It takes almost an hour (plus some more light rain) before the game resumes. Gus takes the mound and gets the Mudcats out of the inning. Denis Phipps his a two-run bomb to take a 3-2 lead. Fast forward to the eigth inning and the Mudcats give up the lead. Then in the tenth the Mudcats give up two runs, making it 5-3 Suns.
    Bottom of the 10th: Kris Harvey goes in for his third inning of work. Denis Phipps leads it off with a single into left. Quntin Berry then walks. Chris Hatcher replaces Harvey. Mike Costanzo pops out, one away. James Skelton walks. Bases are loaded, one out. Naftali Soto strikes out. Two away. With the bases loaded and two strikes on second baseman Henry Rodriguez, Pollo (Rodriguez's nickname) singles back up the middle, scoring Phipps and Berry. Game tied. Hatcher throws a wild pitch, moving the runners up to second and third. Then outfielder Felix Perez punches out at 12:52 AM. The umpires and the managers get together and suspend the game for the morning. It will continue tonight (Tuesday) at 6:15 in the top of the 11th with it 5-5. I have never seen anything stranger then these events that occurred on Monday night.
    The night before on what was supposed to be the Suns 4th of July game with the "biggest fireworks of the year", and the stadium full of kids, the Suns won in the bottom of the 17th. Of course by then it was well past midnight, and the stadium was nearly empty and all the kids went home without the fireworks.

    If some there would have had the smarts to say. "Let's pause the game for 20 minutes, shoot the fireworks, let the umps go to the bathroom, and resume the game"......

    So Suns followed that up with bus trip to Carolina, and then the marathon described above....
