How to use lead off in a sentence?

  1. Willy Adames:

    After the first-inning run, Woodruff allowed a pair of third-inning singles in six innings, striking out 10 and walking two. Edman generated a run for The Cardinals in the first. He worked a nine-pitch walk to lead off, stole second, took third on a groundout and scored on Tyler O’Neill’s sacrifice fly. The Cardinals made The Cardinals 2-0 in the eighth when pinch-hitter Lars Nootbaar walked with one out, stole second and scored on Edman’s second hit of the game. ’ The Cardinals’s impressive, they know they have to continue to win to get to the postseason. They’ve been playing really good ball. They’re doing the little things and I think that’s why they’ve been so good right now. Jake Woodford -LRB- 3-3 -RRB-’ve to give credit to them.
