  • And it's three strikes you're out at the old ball game...
A bizarre family brawl culminating in multiple stabbings and a chase involving vicious dogs erupted at a Vallejo pee wee baseball game.

The action started when a player's estranged mother and father began arguing after the child struck out. The argument took a physical turn when the mother's current boyfriend -- you knew this would be messy -- was knocked to the ground. At this point, the mother, 27-year-old Katheryne Wildman, allegedly stabbed her ex-husband with a small knife on her keychain.

The boyfriend, 24-year-old Josh Gonzalez, and his two pit bull dogs then chased down the father -- and allegedly stabbed him again. Gonzalez' weapon of choice was a screwdriver. 

The twice-stabbed father claimed his elbow bone was chipped by the screwdriver. He also complained to police, who arrested both Wildman and Gonzalez.

To the young man whose strikeout spurred all this bad craziness: It's okay, kid. You'll get 'em next time.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
