Willington 1 vs Willington 2

Posted by Josh on May 3, 2012 in Baseball, Sports |

On Wednesday, May 2nd, my team Willington 2 played Willington 1 for the second time in a row.  We started out playing much better than in our previous meeting with this team, allowing just one run in the first inning and batting well.  The next inning, I was the very first batter, and I hit the first pitch.  The ball grounded right to shortstop, and I was thrown out at first.  In the third inning, with two outs, the ball was hit to me in left field, but it dropped in front of me. I didn’t want to charge the ball to let it go by me.  I felt bad because the other team scored five runs.  In the next inning, our very first batter, Austin walked and that brought me up to bat.  After swinging and missing, the pitcher pitched four straight balls to walk me.  Later Austin and I both stole a base and the batter that was up walked to load the bases with no outs, which lead to a pitcher change.  The new pitcher struck-out our next batter, but a passed ball allowed Austin to score our first run.  I stole third on the past ball.  After walking another batter, the bases were loaded again.  The next batter hit the ball to third and he tagged the base, and threw it home, but I just barely beat the throw for our second run of the game.

In the fourth inning, we allowed four runs, but with the base full and no outs, our pitcher struck out three batters in a row.  The next inning we got a man on third and two outs when I came up to bat, and I struck-out leaving him stranded at third.  We allowed no runs the same inning.  We never got up to bat because the game was called due to darkness.  We lost 10-2.  We did much better in batting.  We had some errors on fielding but I think we did better.  Our next game is at River Road against Willimantic, and I think we’ll do better, and I think we’ll get another win!

    Losing is never enjoyable but I am proud of your positive outlook and I am sure your parents are too! We all learn from our mistakes and the mistakes of others. It is so important in life to recognize the areas we can improve on and then take the necessary action. Keep up the great work both in your sports and your writing. Remember practice makes perfect. I really enjoy reading about your adventures and can’t wait for the next update.
