It's a no-no Rockies, getting the shirt involved (Braves 4, Rockies 3)
And then Braves phenom Jason Heyward puts a ball deep to center and I see two Braves baserunners go in ftw.
"The shirt is undefeated! The shirt is undefeated!"
I wasn't planning on bringing the 6-0 shirt to Sunday's game until the Rockies on Saturday went for a no-hitter, the 264th in MLB history and the first one since the Chicago White Sox's Mark Buerhle had a perfect game last season.
So on Sunday, the shirt went into play. Sham and I were able to get our usual tailgating spot and also as usual, the mix of grilling and beeze meant we didn't catch the game until the 3rd inning.
But no matter. The shirt exists to close out games, not set perfect attendance.
And to win a game but lose the series? That's the real no-no in anybody's books.
