I feel like we haven’t shut out our opposition as much as we’re getting shut out. This shouldn’t be happening.
We were so evenly matched, it was scary. Unfortunately, Lackey caved first. He struck out his first batter of the fifth, but then he gave up a single, a walk and another single that resulted in one run. He was pulled after he gave up a double and a single to lead off the seventh, but after striking out his first batter, Tazawa gave up a sac fly to score another run. Breslow pitched the eighth.
Meanwhile, we collected a grand total of five hits and were shut out yet again.
The final score was two-zip, and Lackey took a very undeserved loss.
