Who did they play!! Never heard of them! And this is supposed to be a big win? What about beating some Big 12 teams?

I don’t think anybody said it was a “big win.” But it was a nice win for sure, and it had nothing to do with the opponent (obviously you don’t know anything about baseball). It was how we won. We went from an easy (almost lazy) 2-0 lead with not only our ace, but our only real starting pitcher as of right now just cruising, throwing a perfect game on very few piches and 2 strikes on the 1st guy up in the top of the 5th. Next pitch he hits the guy. And within what seemed like 15 minutes, our ace has given up 4 runs, been removed from the game for an unknown injury that had EVERYBODY worrying at the time it was the injury that shall not be named, and another 2 runs tacked on to go down 6-2. It was crazy how fast everything changed, and it would have been easy to be a little shell-shocked and let it slip away. But we battled back to tie it, then went back down a run, tied it again, then finally took the lead as our Sr. former 1-inning closer, pitched a scoreless last 2 and 1/3 to get the win. Granted, B-C threw some rag arse arms out there and we probably should have scored 15+, but overcoming adversity with the unknown injury to Money looming over them and finding a way to win (or not lose) was “nice.”
