The ninth inning began with Aaron Orender blooping a single to center. Seth Tucker tried to move him to second with a sacrifice bunt but Hiatt’s big breaking curve evaded Tucker’s barrel.
Late last summer I found myself in Denver on a layover. I was just considering some of the Veteran writers I was hoping to profile, but I hadn’t reached out to any of them yet. I’d finished reading Brady Seth Tucker’s amazing collection of poetry, Mormon Boy, a few weeks before, and I realized he was teaching in Colorado. I zipped off an e-mail in his direction. It turns out that he happened to be in Denver for the Litfest at the Lighthouse Writers Workshop, and we were able to meet.
