Sweet Sweet Success

Tonight we played Ashley for my final time as a high school baseball player. The first game I sat the bench, giving way to our other first baseman for some playing time. Game two, I DHed. A DH is a designated hitter, which is someone who bats for someone playing the field.

We won the first game easily with a score of 16-1 in 4 innings. In game two, I finally put my hitting shoes on. My first at bat came with the bases loaded and two outs. I placed a ball down the right field line for a two run double. We ended the inning with a 5-0 advantage. My second at bat resulted in a sharp hit line drive single to right field. My third time up to bat, I ripped a bases loaded shot to the fence in right center. The result was 3 runs scored, and me being thrown out by two steps trying for third. This Porter was not blessed with the fleetest of foot. That was most likely my last chance for a triple.

The second game ended with a score of 16-3.

Game 2 Offensively: 3-3, 2 2B, 5 RBI
