Yesterday I was able to see the Stockton Ports play against the San Jose Giants. Lucky for me I have a DSLR camera so I could take very nice pictures. Unlucky for me I don't even have a zoom lens so I couldn't take close up pictures. However I went on the computer and did some super cropping and the pictures came out okay!
The game featured Justin Duchscherer starting for Stockton for a Rehab start. He pitched two perfect innings. Stockton scored first in the 1st inning. 3 runs off of Giants starter Paul Oseguera. The game would remain 3-0 until the Giants scored 7 runs in the 7th inning. It was ugly, 7 runs on only 3 hits. In the 8th Yusef Carter hit a two run home run making the game 5-7. That was the last any team would score and the Giants won (booooooooo).
Pictures anyone? (yay for amateur photography!)

Todd Johnson and Grant Desme in the back.
Holy crap Justin Duchscherer! This is when I yelled out "Hey Justin." He didn't even look at me :(
Still walking away from me :(
Jermaine Mitchell, Todd Johnson, and Jemile Weeks
Grant Desme hitting. Desme was the infamous beer batter at the game. He struck out to give everyone half priced beer. A few innings later he struck out again to give everyone half priced apple juice. Thanks?
San Jose manager dude guy is feeling down after being ejected in the first inning.
Next Justin Duchscherer's pitching:
Woooo and that is all. I hope you guys like them.
I have a question now. Is it okay to root for the San Jose Giants? They're my hometown team but also they are part of the enemy. I'm confused!
