|Prince at Arm & Hammer Park in Trenton|
We went to see a minor league baseball game between the Trenton Thunder, the Yankees Double A affiliate in the Eastern League and the Richmond Flying Squirrels, the San Francisco Giants' farm club that afternoon at Arm & Hammer Park which was previously called Mercer County Waterfront Park.
As for the game we saw, the Thunder scored early and often as they beat up the Flying Squirrels, 15-1.

As for the game we saw, Hiroki Kuroda threw a five hit shutout. He went the distance despite only having a 3-0 lead. It was shocking because in this day and age, the closer always comes in the ninth inning when the lead is three runs or less so they can attempt to pick up a save. Much to our surprise and delight, Joe Girardi decided to stay with Kuroda who was in cruise control. Thanks to Jayson Nix who hit a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the fifth inning and Brett Gardner who followed him with a two run homer that hit high off the foul pole in right, the Yankees had all the run support they needed to beat the Orioles as they won the series, two games to one.
In addition, they played the game in a manageable 2 hours and 38 minutes which gave us more time to make our way towards Boston for their annual Patriots' Day game that Monday morning.
Stay tuned for the special post that we'll recap the game we saw at Fenway Park.
