So last night we played the longest game that I have ever been a part of, and it only went 9 innings. I also witnessed one of the most ridiculous things that I have ever seen in pro ball. It was the top of the 5th inning and we were winning 1-0. There was an obvious storm on the horizon as it had already started raining. The opposing manager pulled his team off the field, and wouldn’t send them to the plate. He did so in fear of going 1-2-3 and the game being called official due to the storm. I have never seen something like that happen before, it was pretty heinous. So long story short, we sat through a 2 hour rain delay, and the game started back at 10 35. We finished the night with a walk off win, and Jason Delaney hit a game tying home run with 2 outs in the 9th. And the game finished sometime after midnight. All in all it was a crazy night.
Now just a quick write up on my last outing, and sorry it has taken so long but my girlfriend came to see me again. It was an unfortunately short visit, but it was really good to see her since it had been like 2 months since I saw her. So anyways, my last outing I gave up only 1 hit over 6 scoreless innings, and I really threw the ball well. I did have 4 walks, but they weren’t because I was necesarrily wild, but that I was making pitchers pitches. Perhaps even nibbling from time to time, which I try to stay away from for the most part. The main key to my success for this outing was my ability to pitch in. It has been something that I have struggled with the past couple of outings, and something that I have had to work on because teams now know that I am going to attack them alot with sinkiers. So it was reassuring to be able to attack them differently than I usually do and still have success.
Well that is all for now guys, I throw again on Friday in Akron, and should have another post some time shortly after that. Until then everybody take care.
