Darn Orange Birds ... Again

Nick Wagner pitched a nice game for his first varsity start, going 5 innings, allowing 2 earned runs, and giving us a chance to win. We scored in the top of the 4th, but they matched us in the bottom half. We scored again in the 5th. Then they came back and scored 3 runs to start the 6th inning. At 4-2, we mounted a quick comeback in the 7th inning, scoring 2 runs to tie the game. Pitts was again at the center of things, driving in the first run, then stealing third and scoring on the catcher's throwing error - to tie the game. In the bottom half of the seventh, the first batter walked, went to second on a wild pitch, then the next two hitters struck out. Which brought up their number 4 hitter (who already had two RBI). We quickly IBB'd him. But then, their catcher made up for his throwing error, by hitting a pitcher's pitch down the third base line to score their fifth and deciding run. We deserved victory ... we just didn't get it. We will.

Tonight is senior BBQ night. The weather looks bleak, but hopefully the rain will hold off and we can have a nice night, beating the Rebels, and having a cook out to honor our seniors and their parents. Go Pirates!
