Another exciting finish…

Filed under: Uncategorized — stevemryan @ 11:01 pm

The third match-up of the first round pits the 16th seed 1915 Boston Braves against the 49th seed 1916 Washington Senators.  The score was tied at 1-1 after three innings and stood 4-2 Braves after the fifth. 

Braves starter, Dick Rudolph, was ejected with two on and two out in the bottom of the 5th inning.  Art Nehf relieved and the first batter, George McBride, reached on an error to load the bases.  Walter Johnson was lifted for pinch-hitter Joe Leonard.  Nehf struck Leonard out to get out of the jam.  Doc Ayers came on in relief of Johnson and shut down the Braves the rest of the way.

That score stood until there were two out and nobody on in the bottom of the 9th with the pitcher’s spot due up.  Sam Rice drew the pinch-hit walk and Ray Morgan followed with a single.  Eddie Foster roped a deep double to tie the score.  Clyde Milan coaxed a walk.  After a visit to the mound, Nehf was allowed to face Elmer Smith.  Smith immediately drilled a single to score Foster and win the game for the Senators!  #ycpb



Is this a great game or what?!?!?

I love having the weekend off and being able to play games in my tourney.  I am learning the BallScore/BallStat program and the key is making sure the settings force the program to save after each play.  I have made a couple of mistakes, but I copy the scored plays to the point of error (on paper) and then reset the inning.  This allows me to figure it out so that I can rebuild the inning correctly.  I still have to figure out the BallStat side of it for compiling stats.  So far I think I have compiled some games several times.  Learning curve, but it is lots of fun and I am excited to continue the games.

There's a fine line between visionary and wrong. Unfortunately, it takes a visionary to see it.
