After the home run Golden struck out the second batter before a single, a walk and another single made it 2-0. A fly out to right field with a man on third allowed the third run to score before Golden struck out the final batter.

    Sometimes we take the words we use for granted. Take the word “fan” as it relates to supporters of sports teams. Fan is short for fanatic.

    Fanatic is defined in the Cambridge English Dictionary as “a person whose strong admiration for something is extreme and unreasonable.”
