Van der Stel vs VOB. It was rather hot in STELLENBOSCH and our bat’s started just about the same as the weather. Some early runs on the board and great pitching by Ruaan got us off to a great start.
Michael Kulp showing off by hitting two homeruns in his first two at bat. It only just cleared the fence though. We were going well until the selectors in Kevin Johnson and Janine Johnson pitched up and some of the guys showed some nervous moments. Obviously trying to impress the selectors.
New player Alun had a solid game and looked like he fitted into the setup just fine. We left quite a few runners on base and fell off to sleep a little and they came right back at us.
The game went into an extra inning, and then we decided to show them just where we actually came from. We scored five runs in that inning which was enough for us to win the game. Contributions all round.
We had about 19 players and Coach Jimi looked like he had his hands full with making changes. Most guys got a game though and welcome to Marc Ernstein for making a guess appearance in a uniform from back when PV Botha was still president. Final score 10 – 13 to VOB. Lotsa laughs and lotsa fun. Ready for tomorrow.
