The Home Stretch

We are coming down the home stretch on our softball season. After yesterday's game we only have 1 more regular season game. Then come the playoffs. I am pretty confident that we will make the playoffs, but it will definitely be on one of the 2 bottom rungs. I don't mean to be pessimistic, but that's just the way things are looking.

We did not have the outing that I was hoping for last night. I didn't have a great night on the mound and we made a bunch of minor errors in the field that cost us. We just weren't sharp and it is that point of the season where we need to be sharp in order to win. I only had one good at bat also. It ended up being a stand-up 2 run homerun. I took the first 2 pitches, one ball and one strike, so it was 2-2. The next pitch was exactly what I wanted and I hit it exactly where I envisioned. I was so happy about that. It capped a 7 run 2nd inning. But after that, we let them creep back, and we couldn't quite keep pace with them. I think that we will bounce back next week, even though we are playing one of the top 2 teams.
