Yeah, it’s late. This might be a theme for a little while. Get used to it. However, to offset the lateness, we’ve added a new feature to the NAD Blog … Photos! Yes, that’s right. A camera will be making appearances at NAD games throughout the year. Now those of you who haven’t made it to any games will be able to put some faces to names.
The NADs opened our 2010 season a couple weeks ago. Our opponent? D-zero team, Twisted. Fortunately for us, we were the home team. Which meant it was a “No Umpire Allowed” game.
So how’d we do? Read on.
Things were looking good for the NADs after one inning. We put Twisted down 1-2-3 in the top of the first and 4 straight hits (including a double by Jim S) quickly put us on top 2-0.
However, the successful pitching from the 1st didn’t carry over to the rest of the game. And the NAD bats went cold from time to time. But that doesn’t mean we were out if it. Not by any stretch.
Sure, Twisted scored 4 in the second and 3 in the third while we put up goose eggs. Even when Twisted scored 3 more in the fourth to put the NADs in a 10-2 hole, we kept on scratching.
In the bottom of the fourth, 5 straight hits (including 4 for extra bases) plated 5 to bring the NADs to within 10-7.
Sadly this is as close as we would get. Twisted scored 5 and the NADs scored only 1 over the next two innings to make the score 15-8. In the 7th, Twisted scored their 16th & 17th runs. The NADs tried valiantly to muster an end-of-game rally, but could only manage 3 more runs.
Final Score: Twisted 17 NADs 11
NAD of the Day: Eddie. As one of the more self-deprecating members of the team, he’ll probably tell anyone & everyone about all the mistakes he made. But the bottom line is he went 3-for-3 with a double, scored 2 runs and drove in 2 runs.
NAD Plays of the Day: The Bjurling boys win the honors this week. Dan made a great falling catch at short and Jon had a sliding catch in center.
Thanks to Ray, Jim S, Dan, Eddie, Jon, Sue, Tom, Cap’n John, Anne, Ram and Nick.
And Logan better have a good excuse for pulling a no-show.
Your humble NADitor,
|Twisted v. NADs|
