First game against the Dukes. AJ wanted the start against his old teammates and he did pretty good. He got knocked around a bit but settled in. At least we didn’t have to wait 2 weeks to play this game and we hit the ball a little bit. We finally scored a run with Peaches breaking the slump and getting the RBI. We popped the ball up quite a bit this game but at least we got more than one hit. We lost 7-1 to a hard hitting Dukes team.
We made the switch to the heavy baby blue jerseys and put Teddy on the bump. Things started to look back to normal as we started to play some D and knocked the ball around. Teddy pitched well and we finally got a W on the board winning 7-6. Peaches led the offence with a HR shy the cycle. Bad news is that most of us are showing our age and are now hurt and falling apart. Also, we need serious baserunning lessons. We had 2 guys picked off at second and another picked off jumping the gun trying to steal second. Kuzek would have absolutely lost it if he was there.
We are in mid-June and only 10 guys are showing up for games. Can’t wait until August. Arne may be getting a call soon…
