Giant Sucking Sound at Safeco Field

Six hours ago I was gasping for air in Safeco field along with 42,000 Mariners' fans.

The Minnesota Twins' Torii Hunter had just sucked the oxygen out of the Mariners' stadium on a ninth-inning, full-count pitch with two outs and the bases loaded.

Yup, Hunter's grand slam homer over the left field fence was a stunner — and cemented the score at 6-1.

But it was a good game. Close for eight and a half innings, and then for a team — never mind which one — to win it with a grand slam in the 9th with two outs. Well, that's just plain fun.

Well worth a day's round-trip to Seattle.
