Lost by 1 run

We had a softball game last night and we lost by 1 run, with the final score of 15-14. It was frustrating. With a runner on first and second and 1 out, we grounded into a game-ending double-play.

I played pretty well. Spend the first 4 innings at shortstop and the rest of the game in the outfield and did good in both positions. I went 2-4 yesterday with a single, and a 3-run home run to right field, my second home run of the season. Some nice plays in the field by Emily, Dan and others. Our defense keeps getting better.

Kelly was the score-keeper last night. The weather cooperated and it was a gorgeous night to be out playing. It’s just too bad we couldn’t get an extra run or two to keep the game going.
