Jackals Championship- Game 2 (For Real This Time)

Jackals Championship- Game 2 (For Real This Time)

Well, we had the game tonight after last night's rain out. It started out with both teams scoring 1 run in either of the first 2 innings. After that it was a pretty uneventful 1-1 game until North Shore scored one more run late in the game. In the end the score was 2-1 with another win for North Shore. In order to stay in the contest, the Jackals must now win all three remaining games in North Shore.

Unfortunately, the game also had a disappointing incident at the end in addition to the loss. Our Designated Hitter struck out for the third out of the 9th inning. However, the final call was quite questionable as the ball was clearly low and the batter had not swung enough to make it a strike (at least in the totally impartial opinions of the Jackals fans in my section.) He then had some words with the home plate umpire while brandishing the bat in a very threatening manner. I seriously thought the two would be leaving in an ambulance and a squad car. Then, just for good measure, he threw his helmet and narrowly missed another umpire who was making his way from the field as fast as he could. Our batter apparently forgot that while this game may be over, there are still three more games to play. I hope he will be in them, but considering his behavior, it would not surprise me if he would be sitting one or more out. That is something that the Jackals can't afford right now.
