This Week in Milford

Two Base Error?

May 26, 2014

052614

The less said about whatever Lucky appears to be doing in panel one, the better. I will take issue with be completely wrong about this whole ‘two base error’ thing. Perhaps the umpires in the audience can weigh in, but I was under the impression you only got one base on an overthrow. Do I have that wrong? Surprise answer: Yes!

I couldn’t be any more wrong than the guy trying to catch the ‘sharp single’ in panel two. First, the trajectory of the ‘sharp single’ appears to be more of a flare than a line drive and, I can’t be sure, but it appears the fielder is trying to catch it with his mouth. Once again, I despair of whatever Gil is doing to teach the fundamentals to his team.

Finally, as if last week’s nested cliffhangers weren’t enough, we leave with yet another one as it seems that Milford is going to go into the bottom half of the inning trailing Goshen. Will Lucky have a chance to redeem himself? Tune in tomorrow (and probably the day after that and then the day after that) to find out!

  1. Yes, only second was awarded, but the error cost the team first base as well, given that without the error the batter wouldn’t have reached at all.

  2. Thats correct Nate- – he was describing the whole play. Games not over yet but I’m not liking how its going now. I may yet do the strip that ends the game, with Marjie interviewing Luckey at the plate after a walk-off dinger. Cheers!

  3. Panel one, Lucky is thinking, “I wish they’d keep that goddam stray dog off the field…”
