Peoria Chiefs: Last night, they found a way to lose 3-1; the pitching was fine. The starter struck out 8 in 6 2/3 innings and the relief pitcher struck out 3; it was 1-1 at the end of 9. The Chiefs came oh-so-close to going up 2-1 in the 8’th as the runner was perhaps a quarter step from being safe.

Then in the 11’th, Beloit hammered the 3’rd relief pitcher and got a 2 run home run.

Today (day game); the Chiefs were down 4-1 then the visiting pitcher walked two and hit a batter. But there were two outs, and the shortstop fumbled a ground ball that would have ended the inning. A subsequent grounder was fielded but..the shortstop made no attempt to try to throw the runner out. Hence the bases stayed leaded and the game was tied. Then, a strike out.

Top of the 9’th: solo home run near where I was. The Chiefs manager tried to argue it was foul, but it looked fair to me, and to the umpire.

But the Chiefs got a hit and a walk; a fly ball moved the runners to 2’nd and third. So there was one out, and then an intentional walk. But a strike out and a ground ball ended the game. You won’t win many games stranding the bases full TWICE. Beliot survived 3 errors though.

I’ve yet to see the Chiefs win, though they’ve won 21 games and lost 22; I’ve seen 6 of the latter.
