What a Come-Back!!

We played Florence High School tonight.  They beat us in a double-header last week at their place really badly.  Today was a chance to redeem ourselves. 

It was not a good start.  In the first inning they put up 2 runs.  The next inning 5.  It got worse.  In the top of the third inning, they went up on us 10-0, OUCH!!  We just wanted the game to end.  Our ace picture was running out of gas, we made a couple of errors inthe field and nothing was going our way.

The fourth saw things turn around a bit.  In the bottom half, we put up a three spot with a bases clearing double.  At the end of the fourth iniing, the score was 12-3.  We didn’t know it, but we had them right where we wanted them.

The bottom of the fifth we did not score, so that left us down 12-3 with six outs left. We scored 5 in the sixth inning and 6 in the seventh to win it. It was truly awesome.
Brandon reached first 3 of his four at bats. He walked twice and got on on an error by the short stop. He scored all three times. His highlight of the day was a diving catch at third and from his knees got the force out at second base. It really was a remakable day!

    You don’t have many of those game experiences in a career, but they are amazing and unforgettable! Thanks for sharing and congrats to Brandon for his contribution to the team and to this most impressive victory!

    So glad yours and Brandon’s Saturday, sports-wise, went better than mine! I had to watch Memphis get whomped by Ohio State in the Elite 8! Man! Oh, well, there’s always next year, right?
    Tell Brandon we’re proud of him.
