As the old saying goes…
“So close, yet so far.”
We played the now #3 team in the nation and the still #2 team in our conference.
The first game, I thought we had them beat for sure, but we lost 2-0.
The second game, we played incredibly well, until one bad inning allowed them to run away from us, and we lost 10-2.
It’s frustrating because we lost, but it is hopeful because it showed we are literally so close to being so great.
I’m still super proud of our pitching staff for their performances, as well as our freshmen who had some clutch hits.
I caught the first game and the last inning of the second game. I was 0-2 batting with a strike out and a fielder’s choice. (The first baseman made a good play.)
Aside from playing, I’m also excited to announce I have my first hitting lesson as an instructor on Monday!
I’m nervous because this will be a new experience, but I’m super pumped because coaching has always been a dream of mine. I’m hoping this is the first step in the right direction!
All games home next week, including Senior Night on Saturday! We play the team we lost to in Texas, so they owe us a couple wins.
However, I still plan for a 6 game sweep.
(God knows we need it.)
On to the next ones!
