Final game of the regular season. The Bulls go on to the International League playoffs and the Tides go home for the year, but at least they made it interesting; today’s game went 12 innings. The Bulls won, 6-5.
Above, bottom: Zach (left) and Buck (right) Britton are brothers. Zach, younger by 18 months, was drafted out of high school, Buck two years later out of Lubbock Christian. Phillip Britton, also on the Tides’ roster, appears to be no relation. But he might be a third cousin, you never know. Toss in today’s Tides starter and you get Britton, Britton, Britton & Bascom, which sounds like a pretty decent law firm if not necessarily an all-star rotation. (Buck is an infielder. Phillip catches. Probably the Orioles prefer they not pitch. Ever.)
