See ya Sosa

Carlos Sosa smacked his first home run of the year Thursday, putting the Defenders up for good against Portland. The ball easily cleared the Foxwoods sign in right and I don't even want to guess at how much further it went before hitting the ground.

It was a good win; the guys were as loose as they have been in a couple of weeks.

On a side note, the attendance was over 5,000 and I would say every head was accounted for. With fireworks Friday and the rescheduled salute to vets, we may see three consecutive 5,000-plus crowds.

Last night was my first opportunity to see McKae and I came away a little disappointed. I hope it was an off night rather then a team catching up to him the 2nd time around. He does have a lethal looking curve, relies on changing speeds, and needs sharp control. Last night the control wasn't terrific and it resulted in him getting smacked around.

Is this assessment fair?

I don't know how much was that Portland had seen him already, but he wasn't sharp and most significantly, he didn't have control.

He hadn't allowed a walk as a Defender until the first inning last night.
