Just a short blog in the Sports Gamers.

 

I have MLB 2K8. I'm in a franchise with the Mets. Yesterday I was locked up in a 1-1 battle with the Atlanta Braves. I have my bullpen going because Orlando Hernandez, who's doing great with me all game with only a solo shot gave up, is getting tired.

I get out of the 7th inning with El Duque at 1% Stamina. Dauner Sanchez is in the bullpen; I'm hoping for runs in the bottom of the 8th so he can set up Billy Wagner. I go 1-2-3 in the 8th, though, but I put Sanchez in because according to ERA he's a reliable reliever and I don't have too many of those.

Orlando Hernandez

So what does he do? He Sanchez ruins a great start by Hernandez by giving up a 2 run shot. Then I give up an 2-RBI triple because of a glitch. The ball bounced and went through the wall. My guy finally picks it up inside the wall and throws it in. 5-1, Braves.

Duaner Sanchez

I get one run off David Wright, going from 1st base to home on a shot into the outfield. The 9th inning comes and Duaner's gone; Billy Wagner goes 1-2-3.

Now I have 3 outs and 3 runs to go. I get first and second base filled with runners and only one out. Both of them got on by hitting a line drive off the pitcher. Next batter: line drive, shortstop dives and catches it.

Next batter: 2 foul balls deep down the right line. One home run ties it, so what do I do? I foul out. I lost, 5-2.

It was great, let me tell ya, having everything but runs in the 8th and 9th. And blowing a great start with a 4 run inning right when the 'pen was opened up for Sanchez.
