Due to a quirk in the schedule, brought about by rainouts, the Knights took the field again this Tuesday against the Devils, who we had last played on Thursday. That was a close fought game, and this one was as well. Unfortunately, this time, the Devils got the better of us, beating us by a single run.
I continued my work as the team’s utility fielder. I spent the first four innings at third base, where I made some good plays, and some not so good plays. I then moved over to right field for the last three innings where absolutely nothing happened.
I had a mixed night at the plate, going 2 for 5 with an RBI and 2 Runs scored. In the great irony of the game, my three outs were on much harder hit balls than my two hits. I opened the game with a dribbler that rolled all the way down the third base line before hitting the bag and giving me a single. On my next at bat, I hit a screamer right at the short stop. I picked up my RBI in my third at bat, when I hit a soft looper over the middle infield.
I got my best swings of the night during my last two at bats but got nothing to show for them. Taking some advice from a teammate, I backed up in the batters box and found the pitches falling right onto the sweet spot. In my fourth at bat, I blasted a shot into right field, only to have the ball snagged by the woman in right field on a nice running catch. My final at-bat came with 2 out in the last inning, and the tying run on first base. Again I rocketed a ball into right field, and this time the woman stationed out there made an even better running catch to end the game.
