I was at the Salem game last night, my boy and his buddy wanted to go so I said I'd take them. Salem started off slow, had quality at bats but couldn't string anything together. Salem's pitcher looked impressive. Sometimes lost control a little bit and gave some free passes. I think he will settle down with more experience and as the season goes on. On the other note, Canton South's pitcher threw a pretty solid 4 1/3 innings. Their defense was good through 4 innings then they started kicking the ball around a little bit. That opened doors for Salem and the executed on those chances. Salem looked better then I thought and South is no slouch either. I was telling my son's friend on the way home, he is a pitcher for WB, to just be careful pitching to Salem. They have a very deep lineup, and for South it looks like their lineup is very top heavy and they like to try and get bunts down to stress the defense and turn it back over to the top. Going to have to field his position well and throw strikes against South. I am so excited the season is finally underway!
