Our boys pulled off a great win yesterday. You know that thing I was saying about how opposing pitchers always seem to be on their game when they’re against us? Well, turns out I was wrong. Yesterday, there were two guys on the Mariners that didn’t have it together at all.
Mat Latos was good in his first start of the spring. He went two innings, allowing one run on one hit with one walk and one strikeout. He was actually really sharp.
So we were down 1-0 when we went into the top of the third. We got like five walks and a few hits to drive in eight runs. Yeah, eight. I was so thrilled. It was so cool to hear the boys really taking advantage of the situation and scoring some runs. That was a very fun inning to listen to.
Speaking of listening, I was sooooo excited when the broadcast started. I was like, I can’t believe this is actually happening!!! Oh man. It was so great to hear that first pitch to Everth Cabrera.
Anyways, we did really, really well. I was very pleased with the way we played. Gallagher, Poreda, and Italiano pitched perfectly. I think things are really coming together.
Who I am kidding? It’s only the first game of the spring! 🙂
Well, the Atheltics played yesterday too, and guess what? Kouz played! He had three ABs but no hits. It’s just good that he’s playing again. MISS YOU KOUZ!!!
We’re playing the Mariners again in about twenty minutes. Jon Garland is going to start!
