Did anyone happen to see the Highland/Triad Regional game and what a coaching disaster it ended up being. How do you blow a 6-1 lead with only 2 innings left and all your relievers on the bench. How do you leave a pitcher in who walks every batter he faces which was 4 walking in a run to make it 6-2 and even then you do not take him out but leave him in to give up a base clearing double to make the score 6-5. Then you put in another pitcher who just pitched the full game on Wed and you warm him up on the sideline because he was at 3rd base. They get out of the inning still leading 6-5. Bottom of 7 same pitcher gives up a hit then hits the next batter so 1st and 2nd then wild pitch 2nd and 3rd and then double down the left field line game over we lose 7-6. Talk about a debacle. I have never seen anything so incomprehensible in all my life. You want to talk about a couple coaches that blew a big lead in a big game that was it. Then one of the coaches has the gall to say the second pitcher didnt execute his pitches. What about all your relievers you never even warmed up. That was the most pathetic thing I have ever watched was Triad storming the field in victory when they had no right to be there. Can't wait for your kid to get to High School and play varsity baseball. Think again. Playing favorites and the coaching sucks. What a joke. I felt so bad for the kids that had gotten them that far and then to see it all wasted by poor coaching decitions. And of course they take no responsability at all its all on the kids.

I didn't see the game but sounds like poor coaching to me also. What were they thinking?
Along another line Some of the so called major league umpires are simply just lousy. Just thought I'd throw this in!
