Game 3
 

Home Up


 

    Samantha's team made some dramatic improvements in tonight's game, but unfortunately it still wasn't quite enough to secure a victory. The pitching was strong to start out today's game, and the bats were on fire early, allowing the Ray's to jump out to a 5-0 lead. The pitching wasn't quite as strong after the starter left the game, however, and the lead quickly turned into a 14-5 deficit. They rallied late to make a game of it, but darkness and the seven run per inning limit put a stop to the comeback. The final result was a 14-12 defeat. Today's game was a step in the right direction for the team...

    Sammie played well tonight. She had a bloop hit and a walk from the plate, coming around to score on that walk in the final inning. She didn't see any action while playing in either centerfield or shortstop, so nothing to report on her progress in that regard.

    PS: Sorry for the picture quality tonight. It was cold and dark, and I really don't know what settings to use on my camera in those conditions. I do the best I can, and sometimes I get lucky!
