“Recap Catchup ’10” continues with our game from May 27. This one was against our the third D-minus team, Screaming Chicks. Being a D-minus game, we didn’t have a pesky umpire to worry about.
Sadly, it didn’t help the NAD bats warm up after their chilly performance the week before.
Things started out well well enough for us. The Chicks scored 3 in the first, 1 in the second and none in the third. Meanwhile, your NADs managed to keep pace with 1 in the first, 2 in the second and none in the third to go into the fourth down 4-3.
The Chicks started pulling away a bit in the fourth, as they scored 3 more to only 1 by the NADs to take a 7-4 lead.
And then the NADs stopped scoring. The Chicks plated 7 more runs while we managed a big fat goose egg. We decided to shift the blame for our poor hitting to a lonely box turtle we found in the field.
That, in a nutshell, is how we lost our 5th straight game to open the season.
Final Score: Screaming Chicks 14 NADs 4
NAD Play of the Day: Mike Z made quite the acrobatic, juggling catch in right field in the first inning. Would that I were faster with the camera.
NAD of the Day: Jim I. Jim was 1-2 with a triple and a run scored. He also pitched really well when called upon. We have a dearth of pitchers, so anytime someone can come in and help out, they get applause.
NAD Fans of the Day: Mary’s parents. It’s always nice to have an audience.
Thanks to Ray, Jim S, Dan, Rex, Jon, Jim I, Kevin, Mike Z, Mary, Rob, Cap’n John, Tom & Sue.
