Last night was a win for us. I was grilling out last night, listening to the game and heard us hit back to back to back homeruns. That’s right. Three in a row! The Bulldogs ended up winning the game 11-1. Too bad we couldn’t save a few of those runs for todays game. Because all good things must come to an end.
Well, I went to a Sunday School Bowling party and the Dogs were up 6-3 in the top of the 7th inning. I go out to check the score later, figuring we’d won and find out that our relief pitching gave up 5 runs in the bottom of the 8th. We lost 8-6. Dang!
I can handle the loss. And I didn’t expect to sweep LSU at Alex Box Stadium. But it was the way that we lost that makes it sting a little extra. To be up like that and give up 5 runs in one inning. As I was getting out of the car, I heard Jim Ellis say that we needed a few extra runs because “you can never have too many runs when playing LSU at Alex Box.”
How right you were, Jim. The streak is over at 18. Quite impressive if you ask me. Tomorrow is the rubber match. We need another win to maintain a good ranking as well.
