Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 52 year old Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church of Detroit. Piety Hill refers to the old name for our neighborhood. The neighborhood has changed a great deal in the over 150 years we have been on this corner (but not our traditional biblical theology) and it is now known for the neighboring theatres, the professional baseball and football stadiums and new hockey/basketball arena.

Seven Runs in the last two innings!

As I was driving to Northville today for the visitation at the Funeral Home for Tom Mullin's Father (may he rest in peace), I heard the Tiger pitcher, Mike Maroth, getting bashed for 6 runs in the first inning. "Oh well", I thought, "every team has a bad game once in a while".

When I turned the radio back on later in the day the Tigers were only losing 8-6. Then by the end of the eighth it was 8-8. Then the Tigers had a 5 run nineth inning to win 13-8!

The Tigers are 33-14, 1 1/2 games ahead of Chicago (who has the second best record in baseball!). They have won13 of their last 14 games.

The next two weeks will be the real test of the Tigers ability!
They come home for 3 games this weekend against the Indians (the parish outing to the game is Sunday, with our Choir singing the National Anthem), then the Yankees come in for 4, followed by 3 with Boston here as well. Then they fly off to Chicago to play 3 against the White Sox.

If at that end of this they are still in the fight, then perhaps we can start planning our PRAY HERE FOR THE TIGERS service for the playoffs.....
