Kirkwood's first game was with DMACC and stayed pretty evenly matched so that at the end of nine innings it was a 4-4 tie. This continued to the twelfth inning when DMACC scored three runs. When Miles came up to bat, the bases were loaded. One of those situations that if it was a movie, you know how it would turn out. But this was real life. Wait!--Miles hit a grand slam home run and Kirkwood won the game. Just like the movies--at least if you were a Kirkwood fan.
So today they played Southeastern Community College--the local Burlington team. They weren't able to pull off the same kind of miracle and lost 7-4. But this is a double elimination tournament so we are patiently waiting for the outcome of the second game to see if Kirkwood plays again at 5:00, or we stay at the campground and grill steaks.
