2010 Outlaws Baseball Tournament #6 Day #2

Switching venues to Big League Dreams in Manteca, the Outlaws played in the second day of the Northern California Baseball Ultimate Labor Day Tournament. The Outlaws played the Sonoma County Rebels Blue team in the first game.

At the plate, Jack was 0 for 3 with a strike-out. In his first plate appearance, Jack hit the first pitch for a looping fly ball to right field. The right fielder tracked it down for an out. Jack's second plate appearance made me a little crazy; admittedly a short trip. Jack drove a 0 and 1 pitch up for a nice line drive. Jeremy was on first and hesitated thinking that the ball might be caught. Jeremy was forced out at second and I had to score a great hit by Jack as a fielder's choice. uurrrgggghhhhh. In his third at-bat, Jack struck out looking on three pitches to end the game. He and I were both very frustrated with the last two called strikes.

In the field, Jack played four innings in centerfield and one inning at third. He handled a couple of balls hit in front of him in centerfield, but had no assists or put-outs.

In a pitching duel, the Outlaws lost to the Rebels by the score of 1 to 0.

As a result of the loss to the Rebels, the Outlaws were seeded second in pool A and had to play their first elimination on Sunday afternoon. The Outlaws played the San Ramon Hawks.

At the plate, Jack was 1 for 2 with a walk, a strike-out and 2 RBIs. In his first at-bat, he drove a 3 and 1 pitch into centerfield for a single. Cooper scored from third for the RBI. Jack stole second. He was doubled off second on a hard line drive to the shortstop by Josh. Jack struck out swinging on seven pitches in his second plate appearance. In his third at-bat, Jack walked on four pitches with the bases loaded to score Cooper.

In the field, Jack played three innings in centerfield and two innings at first. He had four put-outs at first on throws from second base (3) and shortstop.

Giving up 5 unearned runs in the second inning, the Outlaws battled back to win the game by the score of 8 to 7.

The win advances the Outlaws to a semi-final game against the River City Bandits at 10:10 a.m. on Monday at Big League Dreams.
