AAAAGAME 3 NATIONALS vs. ANGELS  * 9-8 LOSS

Baseball CardWhat a great game! Sure I wish that we had won the game, but the time limit took us by surprise and we allowed the go ahead run immediately after the time limit was called. This is when it is hard to be the visiting team instead of the home team.

When I say it was a great game, I really mean it. Our team showed so much promise. The other team’s coach commented twice to me privately that he had never had a team score so many runs without getting a hit. We were extremely aggressive once we got on base. Our game plan was to hit and draw walks and then steal like crazy. Almost every player was sent to second on the first pitch and there was absolutely nothing their catcher could do about it. Were we too fast? Were we too prepared for run? Or were we just all that and a bag of chips? I believe that it was all of the above. We have that part of the game under control.

To continue that thought, we were teaching our runners to take off the moment the ball crossed home plate. They were to run at least 4 steps as though they were stealing and then stop to see what was happening. This aggressive nature obviously affected their pitcher (Jackson Finch) and he would walk the next batter and the same thing would happen all over again. We scored 2 runs in the first inning after the first two batters struck out. That is a good rally. To be fair, the strike zone was huge and inconsistent at the start of the game. The next three walked with Emma and Daniel stealing all the way around to home, while Aaron was left stranded after stealing his way to third.

In our second at bat we once again started with two strike outs and then 4 more straight walks scored 3 more runs with Brady, Garrett, and Tommy scoring with Emma being left stranded at 3rd base.

In the third inning Aaron popped up foul near our dugout and the first baseman caught it for the out. Our next batter went down swinging and then Hyatt drilled a good single through the shortstop, followed by a great hit by Alex to right center field that brought Hyatt in to score. Brady then also got a hit and scored Alex. Garrett then hit to left field and scored Brady. Tommy’s pop-up out ended the inning.

Looking at our production, the first two innings we manufactured 5 runs off of nothing but walks. The third inning saw our bats come alive with no walks and 5 hits, with just one strike out and one pop-up out. I can’t wait until our bats come alive and every inning is filled with hits like our third inning today. See you at the same time tomorrow.
