Baseball weekend

Thank heavens for the orthopedic cushion and the blanked I used as a lumbar cushion.

It was nice to forget about my back/piriformis for a while.

Ok, Saturday, Bradley lost to Dallas Baptist 6-1. But BU had one the first 2 in this series and sweeping no. 16 DBU was a tall order. They pulled out the stops with their pitching, getting strong performances from the entire staff.

Sunday: 40 F and breezy; the Chiefs went to 6-3 by way of a walk-off 7-6 win. But what a game. The starter threw fire and struck out 10 in 5 innings; the first reliever didn’t drop off much, striking out one and not allowing any runs.

So after 7 the Chiefs were up 2-0 and then came the top of the 8’th. OMG..the Loons teed off and got 5 runs..and were close to a 6’th when a runner was thrown out at 3’rd trying to leg out a triple..and from where I sat..the Loons had a right to complain. But the umpire was right there.

And so the Chiefs promptly..scored 4 in the bottom of the 8’th to retake the lead!

In the 9’th the Loons tied the game with a solo home run to left..but in the bottom of the 9’th..two on base due to an infield single and throwing error…what should have been the third out was botched allowing the runner from second to score and win the game 7-6.

Sadly, few were there to watch.
