a game worth winnin' from the beginnin' of the first inning.
an essential day off since it's provincial playoffs,
and i'm playin' shortstop, batting fourth in the line-up,
the opposing pitcher's a right-hander with an unorthodox wind-up.
and a good move to first, throws a curve, and changes speeds.
can be wild at times and known to blow the strangest leads.
like the last time we faced him, he turned one savage
lead into a loss for his team, and inflated his earned run average.
but today he seems focused and we were stuck out to dry
in the top of the first 'cause he struck out the side.
but in the bottom half, the bad guys came out swingin'.
a lot of coaches like to choose takin' the same route,
bringing the big hitters to the plate, and players that are purely speed,
and try to manufacture runs and jump out to an early lead.
and this time it worked, so we were gonna need a hero,
'cause after one complete, the score's already 3 to 0.
leadin' off the second, i swung at the first pitch.
no wonder the center fielder back-peddled to the track and settled under it.
0 for 1 and can't get goin'.
the ball's thrown around the horn and back to the pitcher now.
and all is going good for the bad guys, but not so hot for the visitors.
the big right-hander is takin' no prisoners.
he seems to have us figured out, the question is, can we compete?
he's pitching perfect after 3 complete and has a 3-1 lead.
