Chiefs vs. Bees: good series for the Chiefs, so far

I was blessed to catch a double header two nights ago, and a single game last night.

The double header: game one was won by the Chiefs 2-1 in the 8’th inning (double headers are 7 inning games). The Chiefs fell behind 1-0 and it remained there until the bottom of the 7’th when they tied it up. The pitching and fielding dominated (both sides). There was more action than the score might indicate though; the first inning ended 0-0 though Burlington managed to load the bases. Note: the Chiefs benefited from the “starting the inning with a runner at 2’nd base” rule in the first extra inning.

The second game wasn’t nearly as close; the Chiefs scored 1, 2, 3 runs in the first 3 innings and won easily 7-2. Though Burlington didn’t score in the first 3 innings, they still hit the ball well; they just didn’t get the runs to show for it. They did have a nice home run thought.

Last night: I went with Barbara, Tracy and her friends Debbie and Dave. It was fun time and the Chiefs dominated 5-0, getting outstanding pitching (starter allowed 1 hit over 7 innings) and the closer was smoking 96 mile per hour fastballs. The whole team fielded well…Burlington got 2 hits total, but strong fielding robbed them of some hits off of well struck balls.
