Yes, this is how I relax.
Yesterday the Chiefs dropped a contest against the Lake County Captains 6-4 in 11 innings. What was weird is that the starter had a very rough start; gave up a double to the first batter and 4 earned runs…but then over the next 5 innings: “3 up, 3 down”. In fact the Chiefs retired 28 batters in a row while they crawled back into the game.
It was 4-3 going into the bottom of the 9’th but the Chiefs got runners on 2’nd and 3’rd with one out. Then came an intentional walk to load the bases…and the Captains walked the next run in! So it was 4-4 in the bottom of the 9’th, 1 out and bases loaded…then a strike out (on a full count no less) and another out.
In the 10’th..once again, the Chiefs had runners on 2’nd and 3’rd with 1 out and the game still tied at 4…stranded them.
Then some ill advised infield play lead to 2 runs by the visitors and a 6-4 loss.
Today: virtually empty. It was 5-1 Captains in the top of the 8’th before the thunderstorms let loose…I made it to my car when it let up a bit. Not sure it they will continue, or pick it up tomorrow, or just call it.
