After a few games where my AA’s played very well and stayed in the game for most of it, last night was a step back.
My starter did well, pitched two innings but was around 55 pitches. He came out after 2 and my first reliever came in. He had major issues finding the strike zone. Out of the 7 or so batters he faced, he walked all but one of them. It took a bit to get another reliever ready and when he was, he came in and got us out of the inning.
By this time, we were already in a large hole, one that proved too big to climb out of and we lost 15-4 in 5 innings.
We are off today, practice tomorrow and then our team outing on Thursday night. The AAA team plays tonight but I am going to take the evening off.
The umpire who tossed me on Sunday was umpiring last night. Before the game, he came over to the dugout and shook my hand saying that we perhaps both had bad days the day before and let’s move on – sounds good to me, we all have bad days.
Hopefully today is one of those good days. 🙂
