Didn’t come the way I hoped it would, I came in for mop up duty. Our team beat ourselves up by errors in the field (a great abundance of them) and missing signs on the base paths and everything else you can think of.
When I came in we were already down 16-1. I pitched 2 innings, gave up 3 (1 earned). Again though even the earned run I would have been out of on an easy 5-3 double play but the kid playing first ducked the throw for some reason (worst thing I’ve ever seen) the second inning was scoreless and I picked up a K.
I’m starting to use the knuckler less and less, I think it’s just becoming a repertoire pitch. I picked up the K with the knuckler but I’m finding that patient hitters can sometimes get a hold of it if I throw it consistently. My duece got me most of my outs last night.
We only played 4 1/2 innings and lost 19-1. I had an unlucky night at the plate, I K’ed once (unfortunately) and then my next two were scorched up the middle but the pitcher’s glove happened to be there.
