The offensive star today was Travis Ishikawa. Travis went 3 for 3 with 4 RBI and 2 long HRs. The 1st HR was against a lefthanded pitcher and the 2nd was against a righty. The reason I included the 2nd photo here is to give you an idea of how long his HRs actually were. You would think he would have more trouble againsty the lefty, but Ishikawa's first HR completely cleared the party patio that you see above the RF wall. I am talking over the patio out into the parking lot.....AND it was not a dead pull. Both HRs went over the wall just between the 2 signs you see on the wall. The 2nd HR (off the righty) "only" landed about half way up the party patio. The wind was blowing out to RF and the ball was really carrying, but these HRs would have been out no matter what the conditions. Quite impressive. I think Travis wants a job.

Just finished watching the game... DVRd it from MLB Network and watched when I got home. The first Ishikawa HR was freaking crushed. It was about 7-8 feet to the right of hitting the charter bus parked behind that party deck. Somebody wants a job.
