2009 LYB Minor Twins Game #8

Jack played in his eighth game of the 2009 Laguna Youth Baseball Minor League Season. The Twins played against the Giants. There was one player from the Gunners (Trevor) on the Giants, plus Kyle who was on the Padres with Jack last year.

Here is a short video of Jack throwing one pitch. The video is available is high definition; click on the HD button in lower right of the player.

At the plate, Jack looked rusty; due to his bruised foot he missed a game and a practice and has not swung a ball in a week. Jack was 0 for 2 with a walk. He walked in his first at bat against Kyle. The inning ended with Jack on second base. In his second plate appearance, Jack popped up to right side against Trevor. Jack struck out in his third at-bat against a hard throwing pitcher.

In the field, Jack played two uneventful innings at third base and pitched two innnings. He pitched the fifth and sixth innings and threw 37 pitches. He played a nice basket catch in front on shortstop on a high pop-up.

This games marks the halfway point of the season. Unfortunately, the Twins continue to make 4 or 5 errors a game.

The Twins lost the game by a score of 11 to 4. Their record for the season is 3 wins, 4 losses and 1 tie.
