More Angell:By Comparison

With four divisional playoff games on view yesterday between twelve-thirty in the afternoon and one this morning, a surviving witness of forty-one innings and three hundred and four at-bats (three hundred and twenty-nine batters, counting walks and sacrifices; or one thousand two hundred and fifty-four pitches) can offer only blurry, overlapping notes as summary… game of the day, a corker, with deGrom and the celebrated Dodger lefty and double Cy Young holder Clayton Kershaw striking out batters in thickening clusters, and the game teetering on a 1–0 Mets lead after Daniel Murphy’s third-inning homer. Little gardens of K’s accumulated horizontally or vertically on my scorecard, which took on the landscaped air of a pitching duel.

95 years old and he stays up till 1 to watch all 4 games
