Before we talk about the games that we won, let us reminisce about the loss. This last weekend, we did not get off to a good start. The first game we fell, 5-3, to our rival - the Stanford Cardinal. We were up in the game, 2-1, in the top of the seventh inning. Although we were up by one run, there are things that you can do to lose a game. Here are seven steps to lose a lead in less than three outs!
1. Have Leah Nelson hit a homerun
Yeah, we do score one run in the last inning, but it does nothing for us to come back. We lose 5-3.
OK, now that we lost, we thought that it was time for the comeback. We go across the bay to their house and play a doubleheader. In the intense heat, we win, 1-0, and in the second game, we finally come around with a 6-0 victory.
After the game we ventured over to the Woods' residence and ate some really good BBQ. There was so much food and one can never go wrong feeding a bunch of hungry ladies after a softball game. There was something like three huge tri tips, a bunch of BBQ chicken, lots of sausages, two big tubs of salad and garlic bread. We ate so much that Haley's mom and dad had to order four more large pizzas to make the food go around to everyone. If this food was to come after every victory, then it is safe to say that the Cal Bears would win every game that came their way. Thanks Dave and Sue, it was a great way to end the weekend, and we all appreciate it.
