I live in Austin, Texas, where bats flying up out of nowhere is one of our things. Last night’s Marlins/Pirates game gave Western Pennsylvania a taste of the Austin experience with a SUDDEN BAT OUT OF NOWHERE flying in to interrupt play. Real live, flying-around bats. He flies right over home plate, too, which means he’s got better aim than most of the Miami pitchers. Must be the sonar.

The way Miami’s season’s going, I wouldn’t have been shocked if that thing had transmogrified into Dracula and killed Christian Yelich in front of everybody.
