Yes, it was snowy outside, and I talked about my walking outside in the sloppy slush soup.
But Saturday I was treated to an unusual 9 inning game double header (sort of) when Bradley defeated Southern Illinois 14-4 (10 run mercy rule in the 7’th) and 7-1 an hour later, to complete the 3 game series sweep. The thing is that SIU is not that bad; BU was just outstanding.
The 14-4 game saw Bradley take a 3-0 lead on the strength of 3 hits, including 2 home runs. SIU came right back with 4 in the top of the second, but that was to be their total scoring. Bradley had 12 hits in 7 innings and scored 5 runs in the 6’th ans 2 in the 7’th to attain the 10 run lead.
My spouse went home in the hour between games (the second game was originally scheduled for Sunday) and I came back for the second, which was 7-1 win.
The few fans that remained for the second game flocked to the sunny areas; I chose a picnic table in the outfield for most of the game. It was more of the same: good pitching and defense by Bradley and a lot of hitting.
Then today, it was time for the Women’s Basketball Team Banquet.
That was well done and fun to attend.
