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.

Giants advance to semi-finals

On Monday Sam and Andrew's team won 6-0, our second straight shut out in the play-offs! This time it was Chris Gordon who started, and pitched a 2 hitter in 4 innings. Sam was supposed to pitch the middle innings, but Chris was HOT, so he stayed in. He pitched 7,7,12, and 13 pitches in the 4 innings, keeping him under 40 pitches, which allows him to pitch again on Wednesday if necessary. Billy Michels closed out the game for us.

Today the other two games were played today, and we now know that we will be playing the Indians on Wednesday. We beat the Indians 12-2 and 6-2 during the season, but they have been RED HOT since the last week of the season, scoring tons of runs in their last 3 regular season games, and then beating the devil rays and mariners in the playoffs. St. John's Parishioner Brad Thompson is an Indian.

The winner of the Giants-Indians game will play the winner of the Rangers-Devil Rays game for a best of three Grosse Pointe Park Double A World Series Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, weather permitting.
