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!
