Softball 1st half slip sliding away

Note. I'm going to continue the softball posts even though nobody gives a rip about 'em. I'm just going to bury them because I don't really like them at the top of the page.

The first half officially began to slip away from us. Literally. The diamond was soaked last night. The game really should have been a rainout as there was standing water in the outfield, the warning tracks were mudholes, and multiple outfields picked up wet softballs and chucked them over the fence. Ooos filled the complex everytime and outfield tried to stop quickly, only to head over heals as his cleats gave way, sending five foot high sprays of water into the air.

The team we played started with 8 guys. They jumped out to a 6-2 lead on us before they picked up their 9th guy. We played from way behind all game, finally tying it at 18 in the bottom of the 7th. After a 1-2-3 8th for both teams, we fell apart in the 9th, giving up 8 and only putting one on the board ourselves. Final: 26-19.

Personal stats for the game: 4 for 5, single, two doubles, triple, and a sac fly.
