Anthony went right after Rockford, pumping in two fastballs for strikes to begin the at-bat before missing away with another heater. Rockford fouled off the next pitch, a curveball, before grounding out to second on another fastball, resulting in an inning-ending double play.

(Anthony: XP +2)

In the top of the fourth, Anthony had another chance to contribute, this time with the bat, as he came up with one out and a runner on third base. He hit a slow roller toward second, and with the only play at first base, Anthony had himself an RBI groundout.

In the bottom half, Anthony again worked himself into a jam, and was now removed, having tossed 86 pitches on the day, with two outs and runners on first and second for the Jaguars.

In from the bullpen came Wei Ling, the lefty, who had fired two shutout innings in the Raiders’ previous game; a double-switch was put on, with reserve David Dobbs coming in to play third base. Walker Grove’s only other available pitcher was Lake Lagunov, who had started and pitched three innings on Tuesday.

Up next was George Jones, a lefty-hitting first baseman who had struck out and walked in his first two plate appearances. Ling struck him out swinging on a split-fingered pitch in the dirt, and the side was retired once again.

In to pitch in the fifth was righty Ben Riley, who threw even harder than Martin had, and mixed his fastball with a stellar curveball. Riley proceeded to strike out the side on only 11 pitches, and it was on to the bottom half.

In the bottom half, the Jaguars got the green light, swiping two bases off of the Ling/Tibbits combo and loading the bases once again for Will Rockford, this time with zero outs. Rockford stayed patient and drew a walk, scoring the second run of the game for the Jaguars and putting the tying run just 90 feet away. However, both Anton West and Jace Oliver struck out, and Carlsbad East’s final hope to score in the inning was backup first baseman Davis Connolly, who had come in for defense in the top half but was a fairly decent hitter in his own right.

Connolly got hold of a 1-2 fastball from Ling and slapped it to left field for a base hit, scoring the tying run but only that run, and Ling managed to recover to get a flyout from the next batter, Tommy Andrews. Therefore, the game entered the sixth inning tied at 3 runs apiece, and with Ben Riley still on the mound for Carlsbad East (but due up first in the bottom half).

After center fielder Dante Dillard lined out hard to second base, Harry Hustle popped up to right field, but the ball was dropped for an error. Harry then used his speed to steal second, but the combination of Ben Riley’s live arm and catcher Peter Mallett’s equally strong arm led to a caught stealing on his subsequent attempt to take third.

As Coach Miller yelled at Harry for giving himself the green light, third baseman David Dobbs stood at the plate up 3-0 in the count. He took one more outside pitch and trotted down to first base, representing the go-ahead run as the lineup turned over and leadoff man James Wilson strode to the dish.

The Carlsbad East coach then made an unusual move, moving Riley out to shortstop and having Tommy Andrews pitch to the next two batters. However, this move was simply because the coach intended to intentionally walk both Wilson and Johnny Boyega, loading the bases (and thus getting a force at any base) for the presumed pinch-hitter Avery Crumbliss, a far inferior hitter to either of the new base-runners. Riley was then placed back on the mound and allowed only one warm-up pitch before he faced Crumbliss, who indeed did pinch-hit for pitcher Wei Ling — meaning that Lake Lagunov would be coming in on two days’ rest to pitch the bottom of the sixth inning, and most likely any extra innings after that.

However, he would at least be pitching with a lead, as Avery stepped in and slapped a 2-1 fastball the other way for a base hit, scoring two, and Jaxon Stills followed by crushing a three-run homer over the left-field fence. Lefty Quinn Allen came in and got Danny Hummer to fly out to center, ending the inning with the Raiders up 8-3.

P.J. Traynor, previously the designated courtesy runner for the catcher Mallett, pinch-hit to lead off the bottom of the sixth. It was possible that if Mallett reached base, one of the three seventh-graders dressed as emergency backups would enter as his courtesy runner; however, both Traynor and Mallett grounded out, bringing up Aaron Quinn, who popped a solo homer to left to narrow the lead to four runs.

Caspar Stephens, the center fielder, drew a walk, but Will Rockford couldn’t come through in the clutch a second time, striking out to end the game.

After the game, Coach Miller said that while he was proud of the team for pulling out the win, there would also be punishment coming from the trio of ejections in the third inning. Specifically, the team would be running triangles (running from home plate to right field to left field back to home plate) during Monday’s practice. The boys were familiar with running triangles, as they often had to run one as conditioning at the end of practice, but the plural “triangles” implied that they would be running not just one, but several triangles as punishment.

Indeed, they ended up running a total of ten triangles during practice; while the boys all hated it (and many of them threw up afterward), a handful did notice something the following day: their legs were stronger than before, and some of them could run faster than they had previously.

(Jimmy: RUN SPD +1)
(Stanislaus: PWR +2)
(Anthony: RUN SPD +1)
(Johnny: PWR +2)
(Lake: RUN SPD +1)
(Matthew: RUN SPD +1)
(Cody: PWR +2)
(Brady: RUN SPD +1)

Also notable through the next week was that Jason Hamilton recovered from his leg bruise in time to suit up on Friday for a red/blue double-header against local pushover St. Joseph’s Academy; the visiting Lions hadn’t had a winning season in the twenty-first century to date, and were already 0-4 on the young season. Most of this was due to the fact that the school only allowed two practices a week for their teams (and only one practice if there were games scheduled in a given week), and many exceptional young athletes transferred to other local schools because they felt this rule left them wildly underprepared for competition against teams that had been playing together for years and often practiced (or played) five days a week, if not more.

However, St. Joseph’s did have one standout on the baseball field this season: seventh-grade outfielder Chase Coolidge, who had been placed on the Lions’ A team as a sixth-grader and led the team in batting average (.299), runs scored (19), runs batted in (14), and stolen bases (5) while starting all but two games in left field. The lefty-hitting, lefty-throwing youngster was back at it again in 2017, coming into the matchup with a .667 (6 for 9) batting average, four runs, and two RBI.

The Lions’ B team lined up like this for the first game:

St. Joseph’s Academy Lions (B)

(1) Josh Lovejoy, CF
(2) James Van Pelt, 2B
(3) Zachary Simon, 3B
(4) Mark Johnson, SS
(5) Matthew Young, 1B
(6) Ryan Cooper, RF
(7) Ben Davis, DH
(8) Casey Ziegler, C
(9) Jacob Swann, LF
(NB) Joe Harris, P

Walker Grove, with young Coach Collins at the helm for a day, countered with an unusual lineup:

Walker Grove Raiders (Red)

(1) Andy Teasdall, 3B
(2) Harris Potts, 2B
(3) Brady Hewitt, RF
(4) Evan Woolsey, EH
(5) Stanislaus Lem, C
(6) Jimmy James, EH
(7) Jason Hamilton, 1B
(8) Matthew Simpson, P
(9) Tanner Davis, LF
(10) Mason Phelps, SS
(11) Colby Lemieux, CF

Once again, Danny Thornton would be looking on from the dugout; his infected knee was starting to heal, but the medicine he had been on had caused a mild allergic reaction, and he had spent another few days recovering from the subsequent illness, setting back his recovery from the knee injury itself. However, he was eyeing a return to practice by the end of the following week, and would most likely be able to play in the team’s first conference game in two weeks.

In the bottom of the first, Stanislaus came up to bat with runners on the corners and two outs against the right-hander Joe Harris, who had been varying only his location and not his actual pitches thus far; as far as the Raiders knew, all he had in his arsenal was the four-seam fastball he had been pumping in to the first four batters. However, he was very good at making the ball appear to “rise” and had been changing location well thus far.

Stanislaus looked down to third, where he received the following signals: cap, right sleeve, left sleeve, belt, left shoe, left sleeve.

What sign is on? (dustyfarmer)

A. Straight steal
B. Double steal
C. Squeeze bunt
D. There is no sign
E. idk maybe ask the catcher?

S.Lem looked at the signs from his third base coach, and it appeared to him that (D) no plays were on.

Stanislaus cycled through the signs in his head, and correctly deduced that no sign was being put on.

He swung hard at the first pitch, driving another fastball down the left-field line for extra bases. When the dust cleared, he was standing on third with a triple, and the score was 2-0, Raiders.

(Stanislaus: XP +5)

Next up was Jimmy James, who was the team’s other starting pitcher and also one of their best hitters. Once again, no sign was put on, and Jimmy had the freedom to do as he pleased at the plate. He swung away, and cut right through an 0-2 fastball for strike three, ending the inning.

In the top of the fourth, with Matthew still cruising on the mound and the score now at 9-0 after a huge third inning, the Lions’ third-place hitter, Zachary Simon, came up with two outs and nobody on base. Matthew decided to go after him, just as he had with every other batter, and Simon one-hopped a changeup down to shortstop for the final out of the inning.

(Matthew: XP +2)

In the bottom half, St. Joseph’s made a defensive switch, moving first baseman Matthew Young to left field and bringing in reserve infielder Jack Snow to play first base. They kept righty Alan Quince on the mound, as he had pitched fairly well so far, retiring two batters and walking in a run (which was a vast improvement over their previous two pitchers).

The lineup having flipped over, the unconventional leadoff man Andy Teasdall was the first man up in the fourth inning, having gone 1 for 2 to that point. He got on top of a 1-1 fastball and slapped it down to third base, grounding out 5-3 to mark the first out of the inning. After Harris Potts struck out, Brady Hewitt jumped on a first-pitch heater and crushed it over the wall in dead center, extending the Raiders’ lead to ten runs.

After another easy 1-2-3 inning for Matthew, St. Joseph’s put in their final bench player, left-hander Chance Plewett, to pitch the fifth inning. Plewett was a soft-tosser, but had a good slider and curveball, and he took care of the Walker Grove hitters, three up and three down.

Matthew Simpson came back out for the sixth inning to the surprise of nobody — it wasn’t often that a pitcher throwing a perfect game was removed, and certainly not having thrown only 52 pitches.

His perfect game didn’t survive, as the designated hitter Ben Davis pounced on a first-pitch fastball and slapped a leadoff single to center. Matthew settled down, striking out the next batter and escaping with only the lone hit and a walk allowed, and Walker Grove closed out the 10-0 win.

Next up would be a fully rested blue team facing off against the St. Joseph’s A team. With this being their only game of the week, Lake would start on the mound, but Anthony would be available in relief if needed.

The teams lined up like so, with Walker Grove again switching up their lineup:

St. Joseph’s Academy Lions (A)

(1) Chase Coolidge, LF
(2) Kevin Porter, C
(3) Alex Graham, SS
(4) David Scott, 1B
(5) T.J. Wilson, 2B
(6) Thomas Wilkins, RF
(7) Lonnie Lewis, CF
(8) Adam Fargo, 3B
(9) Dexter Mullins, P

Walker Grove Raiders (Blue)

(1) Harry Hustle, CF
(2) Danny Hummer, 2B
(3) Harold Henderson, C
(4) Jaxon Stills, SS
(5) Grant Godwin, RF
(6) Avery Crumbliss, LF
(7) Peter Royal, 3B
(8) David Dobbs, 1B
(9) Lake Lagunov, P

Coach Collins, again acting as head coach, told the team that he would try to get all five pitchers in for at least an inning. It seemed the Raiders’ coaches were treating this game much like an exhibition, and they had every right to, given the lack of talent on the St. Joseph’s roster.

In the bottom of the first, Harold came up to bat with one out and a runner on second against Dexter Mullins, a lefty with shaky control but a good changeup.

What do you do? (Baseballteen9500)

A. Be aggressive
B. Be patient
C. Sit fastball
D. Sit changeup
E. Sacrifice bunt

Harold, knowing that Dexter’s wildness had already led to a walk and a wild pitch, decided to be patient at the plate and look for his pitch.

He didn’t get his pitch, but he did reach base, as the second pitch of the at-bat hit him square in the thigh, and he jogged down to first before being replaced by a courtesy runner, Dante Dillard. A sacrifice fly later in the inning would score the first run of the game for Walker Grove.

(Harold: XP +3)

After two solid innings from Lake Lagunov, he singled in the second inning and was replaced by a courtesy runner, James Wilson. In the third inning, he was replaced on the mound by right-hander Anthony Mangum, who struck out pinch-hitter James Ferris before allowing a clean single to the star player Coolidge. However, Coolidge was again stranded on base, and the game proceeded with the Raiders still up by the slimmest of margins, 1-0.

In to pitch the third for St. Joseph’s was left-handed knuckleballer Danny Unger, whose dancing pitches confounded the Raiders hitters; Unger would strike out all six batters he faced before being pinch-hit for in the fifth inning.

In the bottom of the fifth, a new pitcher was put in; his first pitch was hammered to left field (and over the corresponding fence) by Johnny Boyega, who had come in to play third base in the top half.

With a narrow one-run lead, Harold Henderson was moved to the mound for the final inning, and after a leadoff walk, settled down and got three ground balls for the save.

After a few more non-conference games, it was finally time to start playing some games that really counted. By then, Danny Thornton had healed from his knee infection (but had not yet appeared in another game), but now the blue team was dealing with injury problems of its own, as outfielders Harry Hustle and Dante Dillard had been involved in a collision and were both probably out for the season; Harry with a head injury and Dante with a fractured leg. Due to these injuries, both Stanislaus and Brady were going to start suiting up for the blue team as emergency backups, although they would still be playing regularly for the depth-starved red team. The other change being made was the addition of Bobby Daniels to the red-team roster, although this was only for depth; he would be kept on the bench for most games, as long as nothing further happened on the injury front.

With the conference season looming in the very near future and both the red and blue teams coming off of big wins, all of Walker Grove (but most importantly, all of the baseball players) got to enjoy a three-day weekend for the great holiday of “I feel like having a three day weekend day”.

Over the weekend, Xander Woods was cleared to resume activity, although he still couldn’t run. He started working out right away, playing a friendly game of catch in his backyard with Matthew and Cody and hitting the batting cages (starting with the slowest pitch speed) on Saturday.

However, with three days and no exams upcoming, the other players had plenty of options for what they wanted to do over the long weekend.

What do you do? (PowerPro Jr, GoTwins24, Baseballteen9500, dishnet34, dustyfarmer)

Note:
You may pick two of the following options; unlike past times, you may not pick the same option twice.

A. Practice baseball
B. Hang out with friends
C. Go out and get lit
D. Read some books
E. Go shopping
F. Hang out with your family
G. Complain about last year’s election
H. Try to suck your own dick
I. Try to suck someone else’s dick
J. Walk in front of a moving car
K. Stay home and contemplate the meaninglessness of your existence, but do nothing about it
L. Stay home and contemplate the meaninglessness of your existence, and do something about it
M. Do science

S.Lem was stoked to have the time off. His grandparents--including former Czech pro league batting champ Grandpa Lem--had been in town for the week, but he'd hardly been able to spend time with them due to his school and sports schedule. S.Lem chose to (F.) spend his free time with Grandpa, practicing baseball (A.)

After spending all of Saturday and most of Sunday hanging out with his friends, Anthony came to a sudden realization that his existence was completely meaningless. He decided to do something about it, and after briefly contemplating suicide, he decided to instead make his life worth something by going out and getting involved and making a difference in the community. His good works earned him a fake medal and a cool-looking plant, which he traded to a young boy in exchange for a five-dollar bill, which he used to buy some tokens for the local batting cages.

(Anthony: SP +4, CON +1, PWR +2)

Harold decided to do a little reading over the weekend, but the weather was quite nice, and he ended up spending most of his time outside practicing baseball. He did manage to finish a graphic novel, though.

(Harold: GPA +0.03, XP +1, E RES +1)

Johnny went to the park with some friends for a friendly game of wiffle-ball, and honed his fielding skills by playing the infield for his team, which won the game 17 to 15 on a very questionable walk-off home run, which was ruled as a homer after it hit a young boy in the head and the boy ran off with the ball.

(Johnny: FLD +1, E RES +1, SP +3)

Lake decided to spend some time at home, playing games and hanging out with his family. He and Megan also decided to start a family book club, and started reading the first book, but postponed the first “meeting” until the following weekend.

(Lake: GPA +0.01, XP +2)

Stanislaus hung out with his grandparents, who were visiting for the week, and worked on his batting with his grandfather, a former batting champion in the Czech pro leagues.

(Stanislaus: CON +1, XP +2)

On Saturday night, Brady went out to a party and had a few drinks, so he was still a bit hungover on Sunday, when he decided to do some science. As a result, he pretty much just walked around all day claiming that everything he did was “for science”.

(Brady: SP +3, GPA -0.01)
