A bargain for Arizona fans

I’ve been gone for awhile, but during the summer there’s more MLB action than NBA anyway. And one cool thing about baseball – sometimes your ticket buys you extra innings. The other night at Coors Field, Arizona Diamondbacks’ fans got two games’ worth of play for the price of one. And they finally nailed the win over the Colorado Rockies, 2-1

5-plus hours on the field is rare, but turns out there were two games that went 18 innings Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. Over at Minute Maid Park, the Chicago Cubs held on to beat the Houston Astros 8-6.
