Well this weekend we had 4 games in two days In Camrose. We won 3 lost 1.
First game was against carstairs. We won by 2 runs. We were the home team. I played some 2nd base and centrefield, made some nice catches in centre. Bottom of 7 i had a man on 2nd and third, and i hit a huge shot( we were playing on a field that was messed up, and had about a 460 centrefield, and 420 right(i'm a lefty batter) that probably would of been gone at our diamond, around 370 foot shot. Got the winning RBI, which felt nice.
2nd game, we played south jasper place, an edmonton team, close game, we were home team again. I came in to pithc in a crappy situation, and my catcher had a passed ball on a strike three that he droped, went to the cage, then overthrew it, they scored 2 on the play. Other than that I pitched fairly well, curveball was awesome, a bunch of kids ducked out. We ended up losing the game, 7-5, should of won, had a big lead, 2nd releiver blew it, then I came in, pitched alright only one earned run in 3 innings.
3rd game we played Fort Saskatchewan, a team we haven't beat all year. We started our worst pitcher, can't even make it across the plate without it dropping like a rock. Well, it threw off their timing, they are the best hitting team, crushed all the hard pitchers in the league and couldn't hit our own Tim Wakefield(LOL) except his amazing "sinking" fastball, LOL. It put them in fits, we started to hit off their ace who's shut everyone down, they started getting frustrated, coach was freaking out on them about why they couldn't hit him. Then we put in a kid who throws decent heat, nasty knuckler, which just murdered them. We ended up winning by 1 run, I was the winning run this game.
4th game we played camrose, won 11-3 or something. They're pitcher had 9 pitches in the first inning and we were up 3-0 after, alot of first pitch swinging. We just rolled them.
Summary: I finally broke out of a hitting slump, i think 9 rbi's, and 7 runs. Struck out once, first bat all weekend. Grounded out 4 times, twice if you don't count sac bunts The 2nd time was bogus, I laid down a bunt, adn beat out the throw, the pitcher stepped on my foot when my foot was on the bag, and I was called out.
Other than that I was on base every time.
