Well I have been battling unfortunate injuries this year, so I have not been able to pitch much because of my coaches reluctance to let me due to the injuries. I injured my back and right elbow about 1-2 weeks ago, as well as my ankle just today. Due to have a limited amount of guys yesterday, I came in relief yesterday, and pitched pretty well. The first inning I pitched was great, as I retired the side on 11 pitches, all strikes. my changeup was really working yesterday, but unfortunately coach calls our pitches and he didn’t call it once. I got roughed up in the second inning, as a jetstream to right field allowed a pop up to hit the base of the fence down the line. That hit scored 2. The next inning the wind carried a ball all the way to the very top of the fence, but luckily it stayed in the park and the guy only got a double. After that I was able to get three groundouts and the game was over. We won 14-8 against a top 10 team in the area. We are now 5-6 going into a tournament this weekend. I did not walk anybody in my appearance but only struck out one. My curve wasn’t working well enough to give me strikeouts, but It worked well enough that the other team rolled over it every time. I felt like I was throwing really slow. My line from last game
My K/BB ratio is good, but I have allowed my ball to stay up in the zone, so unfortunately that has hurt me in the ERA department. I should get some innings this weekend. My finger is feeling good, as I have used my new fastball grip to a lot of success. I feel my pitches don’t have as much movement as before, So I will switch to my old grip in the summer when colleges come to see me.
