Weekend series in
Oklahoma are always some of my favorite simply because I get to eat a Braums
cheeseburger and chocolate shake at least five times over the weekend.
Last weekend was no
exception. The fast food was definitely up to par, but losing the series at
Oklahoma State put a damper on the weekend. So did the six-plus-hour bus ride
back. Although, had we won the series, I'm pretty sure the bus ride would have
been more tolerable.
Friday night was a
disappointing game, as we didn't do much right in any phase of the game.
rebounded well for a solid win to even the series.
We lost a one-run
game on Sunday in the bottom of the ninth, which was hard to take, but we played
well for the most part.
We need to rebound
this weekend against Oklahoma as we start an eight-game home stand, including
two straight conference series.
As if losing
against OSU wasn't bad enough, Tuesday was worse. Before our game against Texas
Southern, I got hit in the face with a fastball, which felt something similar to
a Tyson punch. OK, I've never actually felt a Tyson punch, but I think it's
probably a fair comparison. To go along with a sore jaw, the pitch broke off
about half of one of my top front teeth.
So Wednesday held
an enjoyable pre-class trip to the dentist, where they re-attached the broken
part of my grill. My repaired tooth lasted almost 48 hours. Almost.
weights, my chipped tooth fell out again for no apparent reason. This led to
another pre-class trip to the dentist Friday morning, at which point I vetoed
the idea of attaching the chip and had my tooth bonded instead. Great week.
Hopefully my fake
tooth and I can help us get a series win at home this weekend at home against OU.
Too bad the Sooners can't bring Braums with them.
LaMotta earned the victory in Friday's series opener, pitching 3.1 perfect
innings in relief and notching a career-high six strikeouts.
