Seventh Heaven: Fullerton’s Magical 7th Downs UCSBAt The Ballpark
FULLERTON, Calif. — During the ritualistic singing of “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” at Goodwin Field tonight I started walking toward the first base side of the stadium to go set up where I am wanted to take pictures for the bottom of the seventh inning. At that point I ran into Titan Uber-Fan Dave Wright, a dude I’ve known for a million years. With Fullerton down 6-2 at the time, facing a second straight loss to UC Santa Barbara, he said to me, “This doesn’t look good man.”
I said back, “Yeah I know, I keep waiting for that typical Titan point in the season where they are very average and next thing you know something clicks and they go on a tear the rest of the season.”
Dave said to me, “I don’t see that happening anytime soon.”
Turns out, that very moment could have been THE turning point for the 2019 Titans. No, not David and I’s conversation you silly superstitious people, but rather that bottom of the seventh inning that immediately transpired after that.
A full thirty minutes later, the Titans had turned a 6-2 deficit into a 9-6 advantage. Yes, that bottom of the seventh inning took thirty minutes. Well, that and three Gaucho pitching changes. The Titans then held on for dear life in the bottom of the ninth inning to secure the series-tying win. Pretty freaky stuff man.
