Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees 2, Ottawa Lynx 1 (11 innings): My son and I traveled to Moosic, Pennsylvania earlier today to see this afternoon's half of the day-night doubleheader between the AAA affiliate of the New York Yankees and the AAA affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Lynx used three pitchers who had all previously appeared for the Phillies. Lynx starting pitcher Eude Brito threw six-plus innings of scoreless ball. Next, reliever Clay Condrey held the Yankees to just one run over four innings, although by giving up that run in the bottom of the eighth inning Condrey was charged with a blown save. Finally, reliever Yoel Hernandez foolishly tried to record an out at first on a well-placed bunt attempt for a base hit by the Yankees lead-off batter in the bottom of the 11th. Not only did the batter reach first base before the throw would have, but Hernandez made a wild throw that allowed the batter to go all the way to third base as the ball was retrieved from foul territory in right field. After intentionally walking the next two batter to load the bases with no outs, and with both the infield and the outfield playing in, the next batter for the Yankees dunked a single over the second baseman to secure the victory. You can access a wrap at this link.

Although the box score indicates that more than 8,000 attended the game, the actual attendance was closer to 800, as this afternoon's game was a make-up from a cancellation earlier this season, and the SWB Yankees have many, many season ticket holders, but only a handful of them turned out for this afternoon's game.

Thanks to Lynx center fielder Chris Roberson for kindly tossing my son the baseball as Roberson was heading to the dugout after having caught the final out in the bottom of the ninth inning on a fly ball to center field.

It may seem odd that the Phillies AAA affiliate is in Ottawa, so it's worth noting that in 2008 the AAA affiliate of the Philies will be located much closer, in Allentown, as the Lehigh Valley IronPigs debut.

Today was the first AAA baseball game that my son and I have ever attended. I'm scheduled to attend my second AAA game later this month with a certain sentencing law blogger as the Columbus Clippers host the Pawtucket Red Sox.

"Makings of a major-league fuss; A parent turns up legal heat after being asked to leave a baseball game": The St. Petersburg Times today contains an article that begins, "The signs at the New Tampa Little League field are clear: Please practice good sportsmanship at all times. League officials say one parent has missed the message, and they've asked him to leave the park more than once. But that parent also happens to be a lawyer for one of the largest law firms in Florida. Now he's alleging that the New Tampa Little League defamed his character in front of parents, friends and clients, and he has hinted strongly at legal action."

"Court supports Bush in wiretap suit; Because plaintiffs can't prove they were targets of the secret program, they can't sue, according to the federal appellate ruling": Henry Weinstein has this article today in The Los Angeles Times. In addition, the newspaper has an editorial entitled "Hush-hush, sweet liberty: The NSA's secret wiretap program, upheld by an appeals court, diminishes our democracy."

The Detroit Free Press reports today that "Secret wiretaps by U.S. are OK'd; Appeals court panel overturns a ruling by judge in Detroit."

And The Detroit News reports that "Court ruling stirs fear of secret spying; Detroit judge's decision on domestic surveillance overturned; critics say it gives feds too much clout."
