2009 Outlaws Baseball Tournament #3 Day 2

Back at the Tracy Sports Complex for the second day, the Outlaws played Monterey Bay again at 11:00 a.m. The Outlaws had beaten Monterey Bay the previous day by a score of 7 to 2.

At the plate, Jack was 1 for 2 with a run scored. In his first at-bat, Jack lifted a 2 and 2 pitch over the shortstop in shallow left center for a single. He stole second and went to third on a wild pitch. When Josh walked, Josh continued towards second drawing a throw. Jack raced home to score. In his second plate appearance, Jack hit a 3 and 2 up the middle. The pitcher made a nice play on the ball and threw Jack out at first.

Jack and Cooper were both designated hitters for the game. Apparently, the tournament rules allow you to bat as many people as you want.

In a seesaw game, Monterey Bay ended up winning by the score of 10 to 7. After four innings, the Outlaws trailed by the score of 7 to 6. They gave up a couple of unearned runs in the top of the fifth throwing the ball around in a perfect example of monkey ball... Keeping the book for the team, I have a hard time figuring out how to score all the throwing errors.

Monterey Bay threw a giant pitcher for the first four innings who had pitched for Lamorinda at Cooperstown. Pat and Jack were the only two boys to get a hit off of him.

Interestingly, Monterey Bay went on to beat Hard 90 in the next game by the score of 10 to 1.
