2008 Fall Baseball Game 10


Jack played in his tenth game of the 2008 fall baseball season. The Yankees played the A's for the second time. The Murphy's youngest son was on the other team.

Jack was 2 for 2 at the plate. He loves to swing at the first pitch. In his first at-bat, Jack hit the first pitch to the shortstop's left and was safe at first to drive in a run. He eventually came around to score. In his second plate appearance, he probably did his best piece of hitting of the season. Behind 0 and 2 in the count, Jack shortened up his swing and blooped one over the first baseman.

In a slow five inning game with a lot of walks, Jack played two innings at first and two innings at third. At third, with the runner trying to steal, he took a high throw from the catcher and made a nice sweeping tag to get the runner out. Playing off the line, one grounder right over the top of third got by him. At first, Jack made a nice stretch on a throw from the catcher to get the out.

The Yankees won a close game by a score of 12 to 11. Their record for the season is now 10 wins and 0 losses.
