Game 11
 

Home Up


 

June 6th, 2014              

    Drew's team faced off against the first place Mets in tonight's contest, a team that has beaten them by a combined 20-2 score. The Dodgers came out ready to play tonight, keeping the score close through the first few innings. The Mets put a few runs on the board late in the game to take a 4 run lead, and things were looking dire for the Dodgers. Drew managed a walk in the final frame after making contact with the ball but popping out in his first at-bat. He eventually came around to score, narrowing the gap as his team attempted to come back. Although the inning ended before they could manage to grab the lead, the highlight was a swinging bunt that was overthrown at first and resulted in the batter coming around to score the tying run. This has to be the shortest "little league home run" I have ever seen! The game was called due to the time limit at that point, but coming back was just as good as a victory to the kids on the Dodgers team!

    For the first time Drew was moved to first base tonight - because he had sunglasses and the normal first baseman did not - and he performed quite well there. He did not get many throws that came his way while in the field, but he did snag a hot line drive in the first inning. He made it look like it was a commonplace play, but the ball went from the bat to his glove quick! I was thrilled and amazed that he caught it!
