Shocker! Rowland-Smith goes 2-for-2
Left-hander Ryan Rowland-Smith was a little worried before the game that he might embarrass himself on offense.
He had not had a bat in his hands in a game situation since he was 17 years old, nearly nine years ago.
Not to worry.
He slapped a single to left field in the second inning and lined a single to left field in the fourth inning, scoring runs each time.
“I don’t want to look stupid and embarrass myself,” he said before the game. “What it will look like I have no idea. I just don’t want to look like Charles Barkley’s golf swing. Have you seen that?”
The answer is yes and Rowland-Smith’s swing looked a lot more like Tiger’s swing.
