Baseball is a game of lots of ups and downs. It is a battle between the pitcher and batter.

The losses can be bitter. They happen all the time. Sometimes it is the last game. That is the worst kind of loss.

The real question is, “Did I learn”?

That is how you grow as a player. Chipper knew it.

It never feels good, but I’ve had a couple of heartbreakers where I could have won the game, but instead ended the season, … You learn from that.
