Solid pitching gets Babe Ruth past Lisbon

July 3, 2012

When times get tough for Valley City Babe Ruth pitcher Nate Rodriguez, his main goal is to avoid getting in a rut mentally.
“What (head coach) Lance (Lukes) always tells me is to keep my head up and keep it clear,” Rodriguez said.
It was an outlook that came in handy in an 11-1 win Monday in the first game of a double header sweep over Lisbon.
After getting the first three batters out in succession, Rodriguez finished the next three innings with the bases loaded for the final out, but allowed only one run to score.

Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game is July 10th and the rosters are set. Each year, comparing my All-Stars with the actual rosters is fun and interesting. No sense in wasting any time.

After revealing my team, we’ll scope out the real All-Star team, compare and contrast, I’ll defend my picks, and we’ll do the same for the American League (which will be the topic of discussion next week). All stats used are as of games completed through June 30, 2012.
