The first two games
Let’s start todays blog with the game against Team USA. First of all I was very nervous. I got the adrenaline flowing as soon as I woke up that day. Just to let you know, I couldn’t eat before the game. I was so pumped for that game and now the people in Mexico know what kind of quality we have. Team USA got away with a win. We both have good pitching staffs and the game was very close, but they were a little better on that day.
Next up for us was South Africa. Everything went well for us and we won 10-4. I hit my first home run of the Classic. I am starting to get into that rhythm and get in season shape. The rest of the lineup is getting loose with the bats and looking relaxed at the plate and thankfully we hit well against South Africa. We hope it’s the beginning of good things to come and we score a lot of runs. Today’s game with Canada will be a great match just like the game against the USA.
Today we win or we go home, it’s just that easy. And I don’t think anyone wants to go home yet. Whoever wins is going to the next round for sure, and Canada doesn’t want to lose to us. So we we’re going to go out there and bust our butts. Everyone is going to do his part and hopefully we do it together and wrap it up.
The best part has been the Mexican fans. They come from back home to support us and they realize what kind of baseball we are playing. They have been really supportive and that’s the most important thing for me. I want to thank all the Mexican fans, because we are playing for them and our country.
