Game 1: Both TJ and Edgar got off to shaky starts, both allowing 3 runs in the first inning. After that, both pitchers calmed down and pitched great for the remainder of the game. TJ broke the tie with a solo shot to left in the 3rd inning. Controversial play in the top of the sixth with a bang/bang play at first between The Man and TJ, which resulted in The Man scoring. After deliberation, a redo was decided, and TJ struck him out to end the game.
Game 2: Low scoring affair. I only gave up 3 hits and 1 run through 6 innings, but walked way too many guys. The Man was strong, giving up a solo shot to Mark early on, but pretty much dealing through the rest of regulation; including 3 consecutive backwards K's against me with his back door/side stepping slider.
Top of the 7th rolls around and The Man says, "I feel like if you guys are going to take the lead, TJ is going to hit a home run." Two pitches later, TJ hits one in the tennis court. Did The Man make a mistake? Or did he purposefully give up a HR to give credence to his prediction, thus fortifying his status as The Man? Only he knows. At any rate, Robbie comes in for the seventh (my arm was about ready to fall off) and shuts 'er down for the save. Great game.
