A big apology to all those who have missed me out at the yard, its been a hectic February, and add a lot of rain to that factor, and we have the makings of a drought (of baseball that is). In any case, here is the write up for the game two weeks ago, from our very own five tool player (six with his journalistic abilities), Mike Gaspar.
First a big thanks to all who helped fix up the field to make it playable, especially Greg. Also pros to those who played in the outfield. Especially left and center, it was a real swamp out there, as everyone's cleats and half of Brian's uniform can attest to. It was a big turnout, 10 on 11. Greg started for the homers, and Johnny for the visitors. The visitors quickly cranked up a couple of runs, but in a lightening flash, the home team had tied it up.
From there, the home team steadily added a few runs every inning, but the visitors could not muster up the same run support. Sean came in relief for Greg in the 5th or 6th and put the hammer down, at one point striking out 3 of the four batters he faced.
Glen came in relief for Johnny in the 8th and also got 3 quick outs. The visitors rallied for a few more against Tony in the top of the 9th, but fell short, the final being 10-5.
Nick Kinsey- Good to see you back, with a couple of hits and RBI's
Vinay- Likewise good to see you again, at least two hits and some RBI's.
Glen- Some good defense at first and second
All the pitchers for the home team, Greg, Sean and Tony did a excellent job.
An addendum to the game and a gentle reminder:
Something to consider, as you all know we have no formal batting order, in the MBC. So if you have batted in the top four of the order in the previous few games, think about dropping back in the order from time to time. Especially when there are big turnouts and we have 10th, 11th, 12th place batters, they are going to get cheated in the long runs.
