Willington 2 vs. Willington 1

On Saturday, April 28th, my baseball team, Willington 2 played the Willington 1 team, at River Road.  In the first inning, my team allowed five runs, and had a few errors, to give our opponents a big lead.  We tried to get some back but all of our batters struck out.  We did much better the next inning, allowing just one run.  I started the batting order off for the 2nd inning, and I was the first player to reach base as I got walked with a full count.  Next up, Max struckout swinging, Jason hit the ball to the third basemen, and he threw it to second.  Despite beating the throw, I was called out for some reason that I’m not sure of.  In the third inning, Willington 1 scored three more runs, but we had some nice plays.  Our outfielder John ran in and caught a shallow fly ball; a ball that was hit to our shortstop Jason, he flipped to me for the inning ending force-out at second.

In the fourth and fifth innings, we allowed no runs and got on the board in the fifth.  After a couple walks, the base were full, and the pitcher twice walked a batter with the base loaded.  The pitcher got out of the jam, but we scored two runs.  In the final inning, Willington 1 got the runs back, and we did not score, so we lost by a final score of 11-2.  It was our first loss of the season, due to errors and not having our heads in the game.  I also think that we were not swinging at good pitches.  In my last two at-bats, I struck-out swinging, but I did make contact with the ball twice.  We have a rematch with Willington 1 on Wenesday at River Road.  Despite the big loss, I think we might have the upper hand, as the other team might be cocky, thinking it will be an easy win.  If we come into the game with a good attitude, don’t make errors, play heads-up baseball, and swing the bat, I think we can win!
