According to an AP story , “Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is in the hospital after he was attacked by person using a metal pipe as he was leaving the Wisconsin State Fair.”
About the only thing I could add, the suspect could not have been an Astros' ball player; as poorly as they’ve been hitting they couldn’t have done it. The Astros’ struggles continue with vs Brewers ; between their pitching and lack of hitting they aren’t much to look at right now; and I’m one of their fans.
“The Astros have lost 12 of their past 15 games on the road and 15 of 21 overall. Houston (56-61) is five games under .500 for the first time since June 25, when it was 33-38. The Astros are 9 1/2 games out of first place in the National League Central -- their biggest deficit of the year.”
There’s a high definition video clip of Pence getting a two run shot which accompanies Brian Mc Taggart’s article; this new age in computer graphics ability still blows me away. Perhaps the Milwaukee police will want to talk with Pence to see if he has an alibi, or maybe Matsui after he’d logged his 2000th major league hit.
