2012-366 Day 267 – Softball Game 1

Well, that started poorly, went okay in the middle, then ended poorly again. The first inning’s troubles were my fault, as apparently I put the wrong arm on playing third base. I hurried one throw and easily cleared the first baseman by 15 feet. The second throw was a little better, it only cleared them by 6 feet or so. Those bad throws led to four runs, and we were able to get one back when I got on base via a bad throw and scored on a two out double. Things were pretty quiet for the middle three innings, and I got on via another bad throw but was stranded while the other team put up a couple of runs. We finally managed to string together some hits and scored three runs in the bottom of the fourth to bring the score to within 6-4.

If you were paying attention to the beginning, you’ll know that this is when things again started going poorly. The other team started finding gaps and we made some mental errors (like not hitting the cutoffs and giving them extra bases). I got another double in my final at bat and scored my second run of the day (and knocked in my first), but we wound up losing 18-7.

I’m not overly concerned at this point, as there is a lot of room for improvement on defense (we certainly played below our capabilities) and some inefficiencies in our lineup since I didn’t know everyone’s capabilities accurately enough beforehand. We have a single game next week, and then a double header the week after, so we’ll have a better sense of how we’re doing after that.

Since I love stats, they’re going in the footer. I don’t really count errors in church softball (it all evens out in the end), so it’s just the aggregate numbers.
