I watched a couple of Bradley Baseball games…hopefully this will make up for the Chiefs games I will miss during all of the grading period from Wednesday to Friday.
But I did get in a walk:
No this wasn’t fast (14:30 mpm) and yes, it is in line with what I walked for 24 hours way back when:
7 Pmmjf Obozft 44 M Peoria IL 101.03 11:13:38 14:07:55 23:40:10
(Yes, I did that to keep my name out of the search engine)
Nevertheless, this is the best sustained walk I’ve had in several months, and it is probably due to my weight.
Now about the games:
Last night: total disaster. Illinois State won 14-1 in a game that was as lopsided as the score would indicate; it was 1-1 going into the 5’th when ISU exploded; 3 run home run shot as part of a 7 run explosion (11 Redbird batters saw the plate in that inning) and then they added 2 in the 7’th (another home run) and 4 in the top of the 9’th.
Bradley’s line: 1 run, 2 hits, 3 errors as opposed to ISU’s 14, 12, 2. Total mismatch.
Today: much better; the pitchers dominated early but BU “small balled” it to take a 1-0 lead in the 4’th. Then in the 5’th, Bradley caught a break on an error and then converted to score 4. Then a 2 run home run in the 6’th put the lead to 6-0.
ISU rallied a bit for 2 runs in the top of the 9’th but it was too little, too late.
Both teams had good defensive plays.
Social: Vickie (my yoga teacher) and Harry (her s. o.) joined me in a box for the teeth chattering Saturday night game.
Today’s game was a Mothers’ Day special.
