Chris Young Is Dangerous!

One of the highlights of Sunday’s 4-0 win over the Marlins was watching outfielder Chris Young blast a shot in the fifth inning that just missed being a home run as the wind drifted foul. Almost everyone thought it was gone, including the pitcher who served it up, Tom Koehler, who turned and watched and then […]
