Alright so we’re going to our conference tournament in less than a week. Our pitching staff is a little thin because on of our guys moved down south and one of them got hurt pitching.
We have been playing 7 inning games all year (we’ve played two 9 inning games due to extra innings) and the conference and state tournaments are both set up with 9 inning games.
So odds are we need people to pitch complete games or at least go real deep. I’ve pitched 3 complete games in a row so I know I can get through 7 just fine.
We have a divisional doubleheader two days prior to the tourney starting so odds are (depending on how we do) I will be pitching either the first or second game of the tourney.
Any tips on pitching a 9 inning game? Particularly should I change anything to try and go all 9 innings or should I just pitch the way I’ve been pitching and hopefully I can get all 9?
