It was the new pitcher’s first game on the mound, and he was not having a good day. After walking his third straight player, the manager came out for a talk.
“That’s enough,” the manager said. “It’s time I bring in a relief pitcher.”
“But look who’s up to bat,” the pitcher said. “Last time that guy was up, I struck him out.”
“Yeah, I know,” the manager said. “But this is still the same inning.”
