Pitched only 1.2 innings. Did pretty bad and gave up 6 runs. I was throwing only 4 seams and 2 seams because I gotta work on my form. I need to develop an off speed pitch probably the slider since its better for lower arm slot pitchers and I need to get my circle change to be more accurate and more reliable since I don’t feel comfortable using it on the mound. I also need to throw a better percentage of strike. The game I pitched, I only threw 48% strikes.
I went 1 - 3 for the day with a single. My first I bat it was a 2 - 0 count and the pitcher threw me an outside ball which I took to right field. It was a line drive but the right fielder was right there to make the catch. The second at bat, it was a 2 - 1 count and the pitcher threw me another outside pitch that I took for a strike to get me behind in the count. I then fouled off an inside pitch to stay alive and the pitch after that he threw me a curve ball which I took for strike 3. My last at bat for the day, It was a 1 - 0 count and the pitcher threw me a pitch right down the middle which I took again to right field but this time it dropped for a single.
I went 1 - 1 from the field today. A ground ball came to me at third with bases loaded and 1 out. I threw it to home for the out and we almost got a double play when the catcher threw it to first but the runner was safe.
I got on base one time today from my single. The player after me tryed hitting a sac bunt but the ball was popped up. I didn’t wanted to get doubled up so I only took a few steps from first. The ball ended up dropping but only like an inch from the catchers glove and they ended up throwing me out at second. I probably should have been a few more steps off the bag at first, but my teammate needs to be able to place down that bunt too.
My right middle finger was bleeding when I was pitching which I think affected my accuracy slightly. It is because I gripped the ball by the seams. I’m probably going to lay off the seams a little bit so I don’t get friction from it when I throw.
