A Great Day for Baseball

Today was game #5 for the WGLL AAA Dodgers. Their record up to today was 2 - 2. Their opponent for the day was the AAA Mets. It was a great day for baseball. The weather seems to be turning and we finally got a day that actually felt like Florida weather.

Silly baseball sisters entertain themselves during the game.

The Dodgers struggled last week loosing two games. They came back strong this past Thursday with a decisive 11 - 0 win over the Cubs.

Today's match up with the Mets looked to be a tough one. The starting pitcher for the Mets was very good and started off the game by striking out our first three batters. The Mets ended the first inning by scoring 2 runs. Thankfully, our boys did not let it get them down.

The Dodgers came on strong in the 3rd in with a classic 2 out rally. The batters got a bunch of great hits and ended up scoring 5 runs with 2 outs!

The Mets came back in the 4th with one run. From then on it was a battle between the two teams. The Dodgers went up 7 - 3 in the fifth and scored one more at the top of the 6th to make the score 8 -3.

The Mets had their last at bat in the bottom of the 6th inning. The Dodgers pitchers got into a little bit of trouble walking a couple of batters and letting the Mets score two runs. The Dodgers closing pitcher got the job done striking out the last two Mets batters.

Final score
Dodgers 8 ~ Mets 5

CJ enjoys a big win. He ended the day with a double, a stolen base, and an RBI!
