And the Raccoons beat us

Last night: 2 hour delay to dry out shallow left field.

And it ended 6-2, Quad Cities. The Chiefs starter, recently from low A, gave up two 2-run home runs in the 1’st and 2’nd inning, and 2 more runs (3’rd and 4’th); the relief pitching was good but the Chiefs only mustered 2 runs in the bottom of the 8’th.

Then today: kind of the opposite. Chiefs were down 2-0 early but then rallied to seem in command at 6-2 through 6. Then came the relief pitching..walked the bases full and gave up 2 6-4..then with a new relief pitcher, 3 more (1 HR) and now it was more in the top of the 9’th to lead 8-6.

Bottom of the 9’th..2 outs..and the Chiefs get a run and put runners on 1’st and 3’rd! But…called third strike (looked inside to me) ended the game.

Workout notes: PT, deadlifts, then 2 mile walk (12:55 at Moss and MacArthur )

The GPS screwed up again..gave me way too much going out (1 mile at the Church) and shorted me badly (note the parallel legs) on the way back. Turns out it gave me 2.1 for a 2.05 course…so overall, cancelling errors. Not bad for me at this stage on deadlift day.

Deads: 10 x 134, 10 x 184 low

10 x 250 4 inch

10 x 280 8 inch.
