Gearing up for the fall tournament season, the Outlaws scrimmaged Oorah Baseball.
At the plate, Jack was 0 for 2 with 2 walks and a run scored. In his first at-bat, he walked on six pitches, but ended the inning at third base. Jack hit a grounder to the left side in his second plate appearance and was throw out at first base. In his third at-bat, he walked on seven pitches to load the bases. Jack scored from first on Josh's bases loaded double to right center. With a full count, he drove a hard grounder to the left side in this fourth plate appearance; I was sure it was a single. The shortstop went deep into the hole, made a great stop and threw Jack out by half a step.
In the field, Jack played four innings at third base and pitched one innings. While at third, he only handled one ball. Jack took a high throw from Josh at catcher and tagged out a runner on the head trying to steal third. Jack pitched the fifth inning. It is only the second inning that he has pitched since April. He struck out the first batter. Jack then walked the next two batters. With runners on second and third, he got a grounder to short. Jeremy made a nice throw to Jullian at catcher for the out. Pitching to the next batter, Jack caught the runner on first leaning the wrong way and the runner was out in a run down.
The Outlaws won the game by a score of 12 to 5 in five innings. They will be playing in their first fall tournament at Tracy and Manteca over the Labor Day weekend.
