There were two nights of shoes this week, and they happened to fall on Tuesday and Wednesday. Wednesday was a planned make up night, due to some rain earlier in the second half of our season. Monday was a washout as well, and got pushed to Tuesday.
On Tuesday I shot well for one game, and thus came up victorious in one game out of three. I’ve been faring much better in my last two tournaments than during normal club play. I’m not sure if that means I’m performing well under pressure, or just getting lucky. Either way, I’ll take it. On Wednesday I pitched well enough to win two games out of three, but nothing to write home about.
Totals for two nights of play: 3 wins, 3 losses. 240 shoes pitched, 42 ringers. Combined ringer percentage – 18%. Not too shabby, just a few points shy of my 20.5% running average for the season. I think I’m in the running for the club playoffs that will come at the end of our season, which is coming up sooner than I’d like. The top 8 in finishers for the second half (we earn 2 points for each win) get to play off in a handicapped tournament.
Take us out, Merle!
