With 2 outs, Ark batter hits long ball that hits the top of the outfield fence but bounces back into play - a double - now with runners on 2 & 3

Batter hits ground out leaving those two stranded

1 - 0

Top of 6th - Ark w/ runners on 1 & 2 w/ 1 out

Ground out to 1st - runners advance to 2 & 3

Line drive by Spanberger to left scores 2 runs

Ground out to first - (replay shows he was safe but they don't change it)

5 - 3 Ark going into bottom of 6th

Ark 3 up, 3 down in top of 7th - time to stretch

With no outs, Tacolini walks two batters back to back - Ala w/ runners on 1 & 2 w/ no outs

Tacolini is taken out (I didn't think he pitched too well in relief in Friday night's game)

Chadwick comes in - our "closer"

Catcher throws out the runner at 2nd - batter files to center - 2 out, Ala w/ runner on 1st

Tacolini over in the dugout acting pissed off at himself and hitting his hand on the rail - better watch out - bruise or break that hand and you're done for good

Batter hits a double to left - throw to 3rd doesn't get the batter out - Ala w/ runners on 2 & 3 - 2 outs

Batter hits blooper over the pitcher's head - 3rd baseman can't get to it in time to throw runner out - runner on 3rd comes in - 5-4 Ark - Ala w/ runners on 1 & 3

Wild pitch by Chadwick - runner from 3rd scores - 5 - 5

ground ball to 3rd - batter out at 1st

Going to the 8th tied 5 - 5 (****!!!!)

Top of 9th - Arledge gets on 1st (can't remember how - been drinking a little)

Spanberger comes up - hits at least two foul balls that are just outside the outfield pole in right

Gets to 2 - 2 and Spanberger hits a blooper fly ball to just beyond the 2nd baseman - Ala has 3 runners coming in to catch it - I'm figuring they might run into each other - instead all three miss the ball and it falls to the ground - now we've got runners on 1 & 2 - weird pitch that unless the batter (Bonfield) sticks his bat up in the air it hits him in the head - but it hits his bat and acts like a bunt - Bonfield is actually knocked down so they throw him out at first - our runners advance to 2 & 3

Ala brings in a reliever - a bald-headed freshman

Koch strikes out with two hold up swings called strikes (i.e. he broke his wrists)

2 on, 2 out, got to get some runs to avoid loss or extra innings

They intentionally walk Fletcher to load the bases - brings up Shaddy who hasn't done too well tonight

Shaddy hits a line drive deep to right, brings 2 runs in - Ark up 7 - 5 w/ 2 out in top of the 9th

Wild pitch gets away from catcher - runner on 3rd comes in - 8 - 5 Ark - runner on 2nd

pitcher walks batter - Ark w/ men on 1 & 2 - Ala changes pitchers

(If anyone is interested in women's basketball the national championship game between Miss State and S Carolina - two SEC teams for those not aware - one thing I didn't know is that the women play 4 quarters instead of 2 halves - anyway, SC is up 42 - 28 w/ 6 1/2 left in the 3rd qtr)

Back to baseball game:

Gates strikes out - going to bottom of 9th w/ Ark up 8 - 5

Need 3 outs to take the series - GO HOGS!!!!!

Bottom of the 9th for Ala, behind by 3

Chadwick walks first batter

2nd batter grounds out

3rd batter bloops single over the SS - Ala w/ runners on 1 & 2 - tying run at plate

4th batter pops up - 1st baseman comes in to catch it just off home plate - two out, two on - tying run still at plate

5th batter flies out to right - Hogs Win 8 - 5

Ark takes series - WPS!!!!!
