Well, we finally managed a win! Our defense has been tight the last few games, but there just wasn't enough run support. Today our people were making good contact, and I contributed by going 2-2 (.500 AVG) and finally coming around to cross home plate. I bought some used cleats earlier in the week, and those definitely helped my base running. With regular sneakers, I was doing too much of the slip-and-slide, even on dry grass.
Now I just need to stop feeling like Terry Francona.
