Yep that’s right. CCBC made it through our first round game last night convincingly beating our opponent. It started rough. I mean rough. They only scored 1 run in the first inning, but had the bases loaded until star pitcher Kenny Ball was able to get 2 quick outs. Then in the bottom of the first, we went 1,2,3. No good. Then Kenny again got them to get 3 quick outs and then the flood gates opened. We batted around in the bottom of the 2nd to open up a big lead. And most of the runs were with 2 outs. Some good 2 out rally base hits. With the comfortable lead, CCBC’s defense relaxed and didn’t let the small things get us down.
This week’s game ball goes to the whole team for a good overall performance. We didn’t let them capitalize on having the bases loaded in the 1st inning keep us from getting them out. We didn’t let the 1-2-3 1st inning get our bats down the next time up. Good game CCBC. Next week, we play at 6:30 and if we win, 8:30 and if we win, 9:30 in the championship game.
Oh yeah, yours truely went 2-3, but it should have been 0-3. All 3 balls were mile high in the air and it just happens that the 1st and last weren’t caught. I just can’t keep the back shoulder level. I did have a long drive down the left field line that just was foul. Anyway, enough about me even though it is my blog.
