Jackals Championship- Game 3

Jackals Championship- Game 3

Spirits have been pretty low where baseball is concerned after losing two hard-fought games at home. We really expected to be swept in three games. The Jackals, however, are not quite done yet. I spoke with a friend on the phone earlier in the evening (he gets the radio broadcast at home) and found that at the time the score was 4-3 in the 7th inning. We were losing again. He said he would let us know what happened so my wife and I relaxed at her parents' house where we were this evening and spent a little quality time with them and the cat and dog.

A while later, after the parents had gone up to bed, it seemed like a good time to leave. Still no word on the game's outcome, but we'd check the website in the morning. About halfway home in the car, I decided to see if the game really was over. I turned on the radio and to our surprise, the station came in. Also surprising, the game was tied at 4 runs in the top of the 10th inning. We were still in it. We pulled over on the main street in town and got comfortable. It's a good thing too, because the 11th and 12th innings also passed with no runs scored. Then in the 13th, North Shore seemed to be tiring (and why not, it was almost midnight). They let one run by, then two more. It was the break the Jackals had been waiting for. We finished the time at bat then wrapped it up with 3 outs for a score of 7-4. The Jackals will play again tomorrow.
