They Call it Small Ball

Anyone who even casually follows baseball has probably heard the phrase “base hits win ballgames.”    Base hits put runners on the bases and move them around the bases.   Today the Giants creamed the Dodgers hitting only three extra base hits and a single long ball from Freddy Sanchez in the eighth.  Three RBIs a piece for Huff and Sanchez, and a pair for Tejada and DeRosa.  This is the classic example of small ball.

Of course the shutout pitching from Matt Cain, and relievers Javi Lopez, Ramon Ramirez, and  Jeremy Affeldt didn’t hurt at all, either.

This is what I’m looking forward to seeing from the Orange and Black for the rest of the year.


And I’m thinking about how I can practice a little small ball in my personal life.


Just sayin’.

    Just dropped in via Feministe and am always happy to meet other strong women who love baseball! I’m a Cardinal fan living in Dodger/Angel country and I have a little feminist dugout at Cheers, and grudging good luck to the Giants….. 🙂
