Vera led off with an infield single. He went to second on Galusky’s bunt single. Sophomore third baseman Kyle Davis loaded the bases with a single to right field. Vera scored of freshman Darius Hill’s fly ball to center. Corso drove in two more runs with a base hit up the middle and then stole second.
Andrus has been much better in the second half, and last night he was spectacular. When things are going right some nights, they are going right, and last night was one of those nights. Andrus was dialed in from the beginning and he made highlight real play after highlight real play. In the top of the seventh inning, Andrus delivered with a single to right with the bases loaded, clearing the bases and breaking a 4-4 tie to make it 7-4. But Andrus wasn 't done there, as he found himself standing on third base with two away.
“I was feeling both nerves and excitement.” Mr. Reed stated. “ The playing level was very high, playing the best in the state.” The Patriots rallied in the Championship game down 4-2 and put guys on base for Tim Nelson to hit the only home run of his high school career. Aaron Olson pitched 5 great innings to shut down Oconomowoc in the last 2 innings, winning the State Title
The right-hander struck out nine. OU senior right fielder Alex Wise led off the game with a base hit past a diving Galusky. He stole second and went to third on Guerrini 's throwing error. Designated hitter Steele Walker drove in Wise with a base hit through the left side. The Mountaineers answered in the second.
“Charlie was a tremendous left-handed hitter who was also able to bunt, steal a hundred bases a year, and cover center field as well as anyone before him or since…he was like Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth and Tris Speaker rolled into one.” -Buck O’Neil; "If Satch and I were pitching on the same team, we 'd clinch the pennant by the fourth of July and go fishing until World Series time." -Dizzy Dean; “One Time he hit a line drive right past my ear. I turned around and saw the ball hit him sliding into second.” -Satchel Paige. And that was just the beginning. As you can so obviously see people like Dizzy Dean, Buck O’Neil, and Satchel Paige have said some pretty outstanding quotes, are they true?

MLB Quarter Season Awards The first quarter of the baseball season has been filled with surprises (see Phillies), punches (see Jose Bautista’s face), strikeouts (see Max Scherzer), and more. Now after 40 games it is time to hand out the quarter season awards. Some are your typical awards and some are new. Let’s have a look… American League MVP- Depending on which metrics you prefer, this could be half a dozen different players. If you like home runs and RBIs then Robinson Cano is your MVP as he is leading the AL in RBIs with 36 and tied for the lead in HR with 12.
The next five minutes would make an incredible mark on the legacy of this team. The pitcher walks onto the mound and readies himself to throw 3 more pitches and win the game. As if almost in one body,under one mind, the entire team moves in sync the raiders create an effect that intimidates everyone by all moving at the same time. This was not a planned action it was just fate. The pitcher throws two strikes and he is one pitch away from the dream.
I mean, who else is going to make their 100th career homerun a grand-slam and pimp the hell out of it? And then hit another grand-slam a couple games later. No one except Bryce Harper, that’s who. Besides the home runs, and yes playing on the east coast helps, the fun side is what sets Harper apart. And if you start your argument against Bryce Harper saying “baseball isn’t supposed to be fun…” then your argument is over, because you’re old and forgot this is a child’s
I had a baseball game against the White Sox. When I got down there I found out I wasn’t pitching first, so I waited till it was my turn to pitch and when it finally happened it was 5-5 in the top of the 4th and I pitched a no-hitter. Finally it was the bottom of the 5th and still 5-5 and I came up to bat against Kaden Eugenio and he threw it right down the middle so I hit it far to right-center. It hit the fence but it didn’t go over so I ran. When I got to first base I kept going and my coach said go all the way so I ran all the way around and they overthrew it and I was safe.
Baseball is my favorite sport and I had a lot of memories. I have been playing baseball for 5 years. 3 years ago I was on the Serra Minor Giants and we were playing a game against the Minor Pirates. We were losing 8 - 5 and the bases were loaded. One of my teammates was batting, he stepped into the batter 's box about to take a swing.
It was a cool fall night, and Joey was up at the pitcher’s mound, ready to face the most challenging team in the league, the Tigers. “Ok,” Joey thought,” I can do this.” Joey’s hands were shaking and his knees were weak. Joey got into his windup and threw the first pitch. It was a fastball right down the middle. The hitter from the other team smacked it down to second base and the second baseman threw him out.
Eliza’s Memoir I play softball. It was All-Stars, and we were in first place at the moment. We had won three games, to London, Circleville, and another team whose name I can’t remember. It was the second to the last game, and our team was watching from some nice shade in the outfield (By the way, it was in the 90’s while we were there. It felt like a sauna!)
