Jack and I hustled back from skiing at Sugar Bowl to get to his rec baseball game. Last week's Angels game against the Diamondbacks was suspended due to lightning after three innings. The teams replayed the game from the start tonight.
At the plate, Jack was 2 for 3 with a walk, a double, a run scored and 3 RBIs. In his first at-bat, Jack drove a 0 and 1 pitch into deep left center for a double and an RBI. Greysen scored from second. Trying to steal third on a ball that rolled away from the catcher, Jack was thrown out at third. After spending most of the day skiing hard at Sugar Bowl, I wonder if his legs were tired and he had lost a step. Jack walked on four pitches in his second plate appearance. He ended the inning at third base. With the bases loaded and two out in the fifth inning, Jack blooped a 3 and 2 pitch behind first base into short right field to drive in two runs. He ended up scoring on Ben's double to center field. In his fourth at-bat, Jack drove a 1 and 0 pitch into deep right center field. The center fielder made a nice running catch for the out.
In the field, Jack played three innings at first, pitched the fourth inning, sat out the fifth and played right field in the sixth. At first base, Jack had four put-outs: two on throws from the pitcher, one on a throw from the second baseman and one that he fielded himself.
Jack threw 27 pitches in the fourth inning, 17 for strikes. He struck out one and had a put-out on a ball hit up the first base line that Breyton fielded and tossed back to Jack covering the base. Jack gave up two unearned runs on errors by the right fielder and the shortstop.
Jack played an uneventful sixth inning in right field.
With the Angels leading 3 to 2 after four innings, they scored 6 runs in the fifth and 5 runs in the sixth to win the game by a score of 14 to 2. The box score is here and the game log is here. The Angels now have 3 wins and 0 losses for the season.
