It was a grizzly fight. Many of our players were hurt going into the game. More were hurt during the game by the Angels pitcher that was pitching harder than anyone in the league this year. Battered, beaten or not, the Pirates prevailed 5-4 in the sixth inning.
Buster made it to the first tournament game and was hoping to make it to the second. He got all dressed up at home trying to convince Mom that he could help out the team.
Adam was one of the players hurt before the game. He and Stephan collided in warmups and Adam ended up with a black eye. Earlier that afternoon, Adam had rubber bands put in his mouth to separate his teeth for braces and took some Tylenol for the pain.
