The Outlaws played in the first day of the Black Tie Tournament at Big League Dreams in Manteca. The Outlaws played the River City Bandits in the first game. They lost to the Bandits by the score of 7 to 3 in the elimination game of the Labor day tournament.
At the plate, Jack was 0 for 1 with a strike-out and 2 walks. In his first at-bat, he walked on 4 pitches. Jack went to second on a passed ball, but was still at second when the inning ended. He struck out looking on four pitches in his second plate appearance. In his third at-bat, Jack walked on five pitches. The inning ended with him still at first base.
In the field, Jack played six innings at first base. He had two put-outs. In the first inning, he handled a soft grounder up the first base line and tagged out the runner. Also in the first inning, Jack handled a throw from Jordan at third for the third out.
Giving up two errors in the first three batters and allowing two unearned runs in the top of the first, the Outlaws lost to the Bandits by the score of 3 to 1.
In the second game of the day, the Outlaws played the Southbay Diamondbacks. The Diamonds had beat the Bandits by the score of 12 to 10 in an earlier game.
At the plate, Jack was 0 for 2 with two strike-outs. He struck out looking on three pitches in his first at-bat. Jack struck out swinging on four pitches in his second plate appearance.
In the field, Jack played two innings in left field and one inning at third base. In left field, he fielded two balls that dropped in front of him. With a runner going home, Jack made a great throw to the cut-off man, but the exchange between the cut-off and the catcher was not handled and the runner scored. Jack had an assist and an error at third. On a soft roller past the pitcher, Jack made a great play moving to his left to take the ball in front of the shortstop who was playing deep and threw the runner out at first. Later in the same inning, he had a grounder hit at him. Jack fielded the ball, but dropped it as he went to take the ball out of his glove.
Against a very good team, the Outlaws got crushed by the score of 12 to 2 in four innings.
After being so hot from Memorial Day to 4th of July, Jack is really struggling at the plate. I am not sure what to do to help him.
As a result of the two losses, the Outlaws have to be back at Big League Dreams for a 8:00 a.m. game tomorrow morning.
