We had an interesting week. With our 4 freshmen playing for our first 3 games
we were 1-2. In our first game I pitched and allowed no runs and 1 hit thru 4
innings with 5 K’s and 1 walk. We won the game 5-4. Our second game was called
because of darkness after the 3rd inning with us leading 12-6 and was
“unofficial”. When I pitched I thru 84 pitches so you can tell by the numbers
that we had a few errors. It seemed like I was always pitching out of a jam.
The guys settled down though and we got our coach his first Win at West.
The weekend found us in Jenison and we lost 7-5 to them. I was 2-2 with 2
walks, playing 1B. We played Grand Ledge and were out of pitchers so we started
a freshman. GL was ahead 7-0 before we had an out. I was 0-2 batting and we
lost 15-0 in a mercy game. I didn’t like the feel of that game. I didn’t pitch
because of the 84 pitches 2 days earlier.
Tuesday we played conference games at Gaylord. I pitched the first game and
everything was working. I had a perfect game thru 4 with 6 K’s and coach pulled
me. I needed just one more inning facing the 7,8,9, batters with a 14-0 lead.
My pitch count was in the low 50’s and Coach Bocain did not realize that I
hadn’t given up a hit. My infield was awesome. I think coach felt worse than I
did, but I didn’t say anything before hand because I didn’t want him to think I
was a “me” guy. I was 4-4 in that game. The next game we won 7-1. I was 2-3.
Stats are below…..we will be playing at Grand Rapids Catholic Central this week
instead of Midland. Somehow we had them on the schedule, but they didn’t have
us on theirs.
Pitching 8 innings….ERA 0.00 1 hit 1 BB 11K Whip 0.25
Hitting 14 AB 9 hits BA. .642 (all singles) 1SB 2 BB
