|August 16th, the big day! The Lithuania
TV station came out for the first part of the game, and the Newspaper
came to report on the game too.
And, what a game it was!! Either team
could have won. Both teams played a great game, and every single player
on both sides contributed a lot. According to Barry who umpired home
plate, in the whole game there were maybe only 2 strike-outs.
We'll have to add the details and stats
later, but a quick summary, the Vilnius team took an early 2 run lead in
the first inning, and they played a solid defense that was hard to score
against. Then, USA finally got a runs to close the gap. Then in the
top of the 7th USA pulled ahead with 2 runs by Ryan Lewis and Parker,
batted in by Ian. That was followed by Ian scoring. We held on in the
bottom and the game went to the USA.
Both teams played a great game, and it
was a real nail-biter right to the last out,
Following are photos of the game. It was
a big day and there are lots of photos, sorry for the long load time,
but there was a lot of action to show.
It's Wednesday the 17th right now and
we're on our way to the picnic, We spent the morning at several huge
malls for some last shopping. At the moment we're bouncing down a rough
dirt road and I am trying my best to type this in. Sorry for any
typos! I'll get this uploaded when I get to the hotel tonight.
