Last night, on a whim I started an 0-15 run against Gerrit Cole, I scratched and clawed by way into a 15-15 tie with the bases loaded and 3 outs. The runner on third had 84 speed, so I was not worried about Judge or Hicks throwing him out at the plate, and 8-9-1 were coming up in the order
First At Bat: Had a perfect perfect lineout to short with the lucky 7 free meatball. Painful, but I have two outs to play with
Second At Bat: Gio Urshela up, and 4 pitches in he hits an early/okay grounder right to third for the out
Final At Bat: This is it, It's all up to Teoscar Hernandez. First pitch is a meatball and I hit it high and hard to right field. I think I've got this, but a majestic, 6'8" Aaron Judge leaps at the wall and robs my walkoff grand slam, depriving me of Blake Snell for another day.
It hurts friends, it hurt a lot. Normally I have to get somewhere between 12-15 runs just to have a chance against the tougher bosses, and on a "last run for fun", I ALMOST made it. I tried, and I failed miserably. Moral of the story? Don't try.
