Game 14
 

Home Up


 

    Wow, what a game! The Cardinals jumped out to an early lead and never relented. They finally put together a good all-around game with great hitting, fielding, and pitching (a complete game shutout!). Tyler even got in on the act, having his first multi-hit game. We learned how to motivate him tonight - offering him $5 if he got a hit. And what do you know? He promptly went out and got a base hit (granted, it was on a ball hit about 500 feet in the air that landed about 15 feet from home plate, but he got to first). The next time at bat we hollered to him that if he did it again we would give him $5 more, and he went out and drove one into the outfield over the second baseman's head. He played both right and center field, but didn't see any balls come his way. In fact, the opposition didn't get too many men on base throughout the entire game. Thanks to Tyler's hitting breakout, he was awarded the game ball tonight! All that, and a 19-0 win too. What a game...

...but not high enough to prevent Tyler from popping it up in the infield for his first hit of the night and only his second of the season. Total: $5.00
