Sweeney's a Spoiler

My friend Mike Sweeney of the Kansas City Royals was activated from the 60 day disabled list last night between games of a doubleheader.

In the 2nd game the Twins' starter Scott Baker was working on a perfect game going into the 9th inning. 24 batters faced. 24 batters set down. He hadn't walked a Royals' player or allowed a hit.

Then things changed...dramatically! He issued a walk to John Buck and then Sweeney got the only hit off Baker, a bloop single. I guess Mike can't stand perfection. He's a spoiler! A good one at that!

The Twins went on to defeat the Royals 5-0 with Baker picking up the win...and a one-hitter.

Welcome back, Mike! The PILGRIM PALS were praying for you when you had your surgery and following.

And I bet Scott Baker wishes you had waited until today to make your grand entrance!

Blessings, brother!

My sister says to tell you, Mr. Fisher, that we saw Sweeney's name in the headlines on TSN.ca, and we almost screamed, "OH! Sweeney!" I've probably read or heard his name hundreds of times before, but it meant nothing until you brought him to our attn!
