Stats from the Game

Coach’s Game Analysis:

- Opposing pitcher had flat pitches. Ump was not calling these pitches illegal. However, I personally think the pitches were easier to hit.

- Both teams played effectively on defense.

Base running:
- Neither team was particularly aggressive on base running.
- A-WOL made the only base running blunder of the game. Looking over the film, he was being aggressive, and he was picked-off after making a bad split-second decision.

Game Highlights:

Big Bats:
Daniel: 5 for 6 with an RBI.
A-WOL: 4 for 5 (K) with an RBI and a run scored.

Memorable Events:
- Strong defensive game put up by both teams. Only 9 total runs scored.
- Game played through a total of 10 innings.

A-WOL Watch:

Played game with groin injury. Did not limit base running speed, but it did impact maneuverability (i.e., fielding.)

4 for 5 (K) with a run and an RBI.
- Used light bat for first 3 at-bats. Then used heavier Black Magic bat for final three.

- First hit was solid and to the LF netting. The others were off the ceiling and near the mound and 3B. (I think.)

- After second hit, was originally called out trying to take third on a Daniel base hit. Ump claimed that a fielder tagged me on slide to third. However, fielder admitted he never touched me, so call was reversed.

- Was picked off second in 5th. After I advanced to 2nd on a Kim SAC, Daniel hit a grounder to the right of 2B. I intended to dash to third after the fielder got ball, but she bobbled it. I mis-processed this and tried to go back to second. As luck would have it, the ball dribbled toward me, so fielder had a clean lane to tag me.

- Struck out looking in last at-bat. Ump in other game yelled “ball” as ball crossed plate. I thought it was our ump, but he called it a strike, netting a K.

3 touches.
- Caught and made a put-out at 2B. (Latter was a quick but soft throw that narrowly beat runner.)

- In 9th, a throw to 2B was wide but deflected off my glove. I managed to scramble and collect ball. While lying on ground, made desperate attempt to touch 2B with right leg, but I ended up pulling a muscle. Had to leave game.
