Losses and wins

As I mentioned earlier, we had our first softball game tonight and we lost; the final score was 22-16, but it was dark in the last inning and we probably shouldn’t have played it. We still would have lost but the final score would have been 17-14. Still, it was fun. I went 3 for 4, although I had only one decent hit. The team played very well overall, and with the exception of some baserunning errors and some work needed in the outfield, I think we did okay.

When I got home after the game (it was nearly 10 PM) I caught the last three innings of the Yankee game. At one point, the Yanks were down 10-1 but came back and ended up winning the game in the bottom of the 9th inning with a walkoff homerun by Jorge Posada.
