Swinging a Big Stick

In baseball they always say you win with pitching and defense but I’m here to tell you it takes a little more than that to win a game. Even if your pitcher throws a perfect game and the fielders make no errors and play perfect in the field, you still can’t win the game if you don’t score any runs.

A score of 0-0 is not a win and there are no ties in a baseball game so some team has to be swinging a big stick to bring home the victory. In the end you have got to score runs if you plan to win the game.

The Franklin Lions in recent weeks have found their hitting stroke and it has led them to this stage in the State Playoffs. The Lions have reached the Area Round and face off against Malakoff with advancing to the next round on the line.
