A Split!

The forecast thunderstorms didn't materialize, so we got to play softball. Quite honestly, I did not want to play, but I'm glad we were able to because we won our first non-forfeit game of the season. We're peaking right as we head into the post-season! Anyway, we had our best run production of the year (better than what we normally score in 2 or 3 games) and handily defeated the opposition. My hitting woes continue, as I experimented with a number of bats, and I went 2 for 5 with 1 run scored. Second game we were back to our usual tricks. I was 0 for 2. I don't know what's going on, but I don't seem to put the ball on the ground any more. I keep getting really good smacks pretty deep to left--I've never been a power hitter, and used to poke the ball between short and 2nd, so this is really weird.

Tonight I played center right for the first time (usually I play catcher or right field). I usually commit at least 1 error a night, but I was very pleased with my solid defensive play in both games. Unfortunately, I tweaked my knee in the 6th inning of the first game. The ground is really uneven on this particular field, and as I was running to pick up a grounder that scooted through, I stepped hard into a divot or dip or something. Not a major injury, obviously, but it's now feeling pretty lousy. I'm going to dine on some Advil, a bottle of Magic Hat #9, and take a hot shower--hopefully that will loosen things up.

So, my season totals: hitting .428, 7 runs, 1 RBI. An offensive powerhouse.
