Short Story including all the types of Figurative Language I talked about
The Baseball Game
The game started and Alex was the starting pitcher. He struck the 3 people that got to bat out. Then we saw that Dillon was the starting pitcher and I said¨This will be a piece of cake,¨ because I was the starting batter. I stepped up to the plate and I drilled the ball it hit the fence and when they got the ball to the cut-off I was on third. The third base coach signaled the next batter and i ran faster than a Bugatti going full speed. My team was cheering and patting me on the back because we were winning 1-0. After the 3 outs I went back to 2nd base to play defense I exclaimed,"Alex just throw strikes and we should get out of this inning,"
After 5 innings of play the score is tied 3-3 and it is the bottom of the 6th with me up to bat. They have their flame thrower in,Johnny, and he threw the first pitch. Ball one i told myself but the ump said strike. Then he threw it down the middle and I hit it and got a single.I told the next batter he's throwing heat and to watch out for the change-up. The third base coach gave me the steal sign and the batter the bunt sign and right when the pitcher released the ball I was on my horse over to 2nd. He bunted the ball and i turned 2nd and ran to third. I slid and the ump said SAFE! The next batter hit a blooper far in the outfield and as soon as the outfielder caught it I was sprinting home and I easily got the run. Our team was happy because we won and we had a party at my house.
