Baseball Season - Week 4 Wrap-up

Week 4 featured a single game on Monday night, before spring break kicked in. We played the Iron Birds, and it was the first game featuring kid-pitch in the 4th, 5th and 6th innings.

It was a close fought game, with the Raptors taking an early lead. At the end of the 3rd inning, we were up 5-3. After the 3rd inning, the pitching machine came off and the kids took the mound. In the 4th inning, my son took the mound and gave up 1 hit, hit one batter, struck out three, and gave up no runs. Things were looking fairly good so far.

The tide turned in the 5th inning with our next pitcher, when the Iron Birds struck for 3 runs, going up 6-5. We were not able to pick up any more runs, and hence lost our first game taking us to a 6-1 record. Despite a lackluster offensive performance (which is to be expected in the transition from pitching machine to kid pitch), it was a good defensive game and a decent premier of our three rookie Raptors pitchers.

Our score sheet for the game is found below.
