We got handed our first double loss. This whole season we have gone without loseing two games in a row .. let alone loseing to the same team twice up until this past Saturday. We played the first place team who’s record was 15-1 and now 17-1 after our two games. We have dropped back to 18-4 which lands us in third place in the standings and unsure if we are going to make playoffs. We have 3 more double headers left to decide our fate of the season. One more game against the first place Undertakers and one more game against the second place Jay Hawks .. both MUST WIN games for us. Over the next three weeks are our games and seriously there going to be the longest 3 weeks ever. Constant checking of the standings and results of the top two teams in the league. It’s really upsetting to now have to tight-rope walk our way into the playoffs since we have dominated every team we played, exception Undertakers.
Well time for me to talk about the game. Before anything got started I took a physical inventory of the Undertakers .. most of them seem’d to be in there 30′s and physically fit .. so right off the bat I knew they weren’t going to lay down and let us take two games away from them. I believe we got to bat first and only 4 batters stepped up by the end of the inning .. and produced nothing. They got up .. first guy hits a home run in the gap. That set the tempo for them. Hardly no mistakes feilding on either team .. but they edged us out in the top of the 7th to win game one.
The second game was just as close. We were leading going into the top of the 7th with them at bat. The lead off hitter for there team had 2 people on base and they were down 1 with 1 out. Guess what .. he hits a home run in the gap in center feild to put them up by 2. After that another batter got a hit driving in another guy, so they were up by 3 going into the bottom of the 7th with the middle of our order due up. First guy gets up and pops out .. second guy gets up and is another out .. then heller and anthony get on due to great clutch hits to bring up Ryan. Ryan gets up and has been hitting good all season with me due up next. Ryan takes pitch one .. strike .. the next pitch .. pop out to short and game over. Two loses chalked up for the Dirty Dalerz.
The loses we had earlier in the season are coming back to bite us in the asses big time now. Possibly taking ourselves right out of the playoffs. I’m coming with a different approach .. I really think we can win every game from here on in .. we played to many weak teams then come up to the hard teams only to not be in a competative mentallity .. now that we have a tuff end of the season the bar gets raised and we have our eye on the prize so YES, I do think its possible to make the playoffs .. Undertakers .. you might of taken 2 from us .. but don’t worry .. you’ll get yours BRUUUUUCE !!
