We played yesterday for our conference title needing to win 2 for a sole title. We went 1-1 and share the BNC title with TC Central, our cross town rival who we had beaten twice last week. I pitched 5.33 innings with 4 hits and 1 earned run and took the loss. I had some trouble with control and it was just always a fight. I hit my first batter in 2 years and had 5 K's but also 4 BB. I wish I had been on for this game, but I was at least I kept it close, leaving behind by 2-1. We had a triple play on a bunt where they were trying to advance the runners to second and third and it was popped back to me. It was a real quick thing as everyone knew exactly where to go with the ball. I also learned something about a suicide squeeze. With a man on third pitching from a wind-up I saw the runner going and pitched it high and outside to stop the batter from laying it down. Scotty made a good grab and blocked the plate with his foot and we thought the runner was out. He was called safe. I think I did everything right except next time I will speed up my delivery or pitch out of the stretch.
