BR game. We're both struggling to hit. We get to the 4th, and he pushes across 2.
Bottom 4th. I strike out twice against Sale. Semien singled, 1st and 3rd. He brings in a reliever (a mistake, as I struggle against Sale). Bench pinch hits, singles, one RBI, 1st and 2nd.
Then, from downstairs, I hear my wife yell up to me. I can't hear her. I don't pause the game. I go running out and said, "Couldn't hear you - what's up?"
"I thought we were going to watch Handmaid's Tale. What are you doing?"
I said "OK - one sec - I'll be right down".
I come back, I'm down 0-2. He's mid wind up. He throws a high-inside FB, I [censored] the stick wildly up and to the right, and Escobar lines one into the gap. His RF misplays it, and Bench lumbers around from 1st for the win.
To my opponent... I'm very sorry. Really.
