Example text

Triple. Double. Home run. The game had only started about five minutes ago, and Hutch realized that the other team had already hit for the cycle. The Naples team called itself the Yankees, even wore Yankees pinstripes. Now they had come out swinging like they were the real Yankees. So the Cardinals were in a 4–0 hole, just like that. And it would have gotten much worse a few minutes later without Hutch. Tripp had finally managed to get two outs by then. But the other guys were threatening again, with runners on second and third.

He knew he wasn’t going to bring the Cards all the way back with one at-bat. He just wanted to be ready if the Hulkster threw one in the strike zone, put a good swing on the ball, drive it somewhere and give Darryl a chance to do the same thing behind him. Hutch did more than put a good swing on a 1-1 fastball. He put his best swing on the sucker. Caught it right on the sweet spot. Now it wasn’t a fastball exploding up and in on him. It was the ball exploding off Hutch’s bat, making him think in that moment of something guys said shooting hoops: Butter.

Hutch knew he had caught it, knew he had hit it high and deep toward the alley in left center, knew it might have the legs to get out of the park, knew he had the power to do that at Santaluces, even to the power alleys. He still ran. Hutch never stopped to admire the flight of the ball, never posed at home plate. He didn’t hesitate now the way the kid had in the top of the first. He busted it out of the box. Hard. The next time he allowed himself a look toward the outfield was when he came around first.
