How to use mound in a sentence?

  1. John Kerr:

    Other than that (home run) at-bat today, I had four pretty rough at-bats, so it wasnt my best day at the plate, but when we got Tommy on the mound, you dont really worry about only being up one run. Our team has so much trust in this pitching staff and how theyve performed in the postseason that we dont have a lot of pressure on ourselves because we know all we need is a few-run lead and theyre going to take care of the rest.

  2. Justin Smoak:

    He's been great, from day one, I think everyone was excited to have a guy that just goes out there and do what he does. We know if we can get a few runs up on the board.... After that homer, 4-0 lead, with Price on the mound, you know it's pretty much game over.

  3. Curt Schilling:

    If the cameras had followed me from the mound in 2007 to the hospital with my feeding tube, chemotherapy and radiation, I don't think a lot of kids would have taken up dipping, or at least they might've stopped.

  4. Ashima:

    Water batter ground, I chatter around, no jitter sound, but litter mound!

  5. Chaim Bloom:

    Hopefully, I think we’re getting closer to where we can start mapping out a timetable. I don’t have one, but he is progressing, it was pretty light work, but the next step is obviously to get into regular mound work and mound work with some intensity, and then we can start thinking about facing hitters.
