Game 11
 

Home Up


 

    While Samantha's team continues to improve in the field and at the plate, they continue to struggle with pitching. Tonight's game could have been and should have been much closer had so many runs not been walked in. I know the feeling of pride when your kid pitches, as I have that feeling each and every time Sam pitches, but I also have a feeling of dread because I know we will be in for a long inning as her control isn't where it needs to be. After tonight's starter was taken out of the game, this was the feeling every parent experienced tonight as player after player on the cubs was walked in, allowing the maximum 5 runs per inning on more than one occasion.

    On a personal note, Sam had one of her better games today. She finally swung the bat, getting her second hit of the season (combined with about a thousand walks, so I can't fault her entirely on the limited amount of hits she has). She also scored a run tonight, as opposed to getting stranded at third which has seemed to happen a lot lately. She played the entire game at second base, but didn't make any plays that resulted in an out. She almost got a runner at first, but was just a bit late.
