Full Speed 全速力【ぜんそくりょく】 Japanese Lesson #72Published
横浜ピンクソックスのサカモトは 全速力で 盗塁を 試みたが 余裕でアウトになった。
Yokohama Pink Sox’s Sakamoto attempted to steal but he was out by a large margin.
盗塁（とうるい）： stealing bases (a baseball term)
試みる（こころみる）：to attempt something, to try
余裕（よゆう）： in a general sense, it means “an excess” or “abundance” of something but in this case it emphasizes that it he wasn’t even close to being safe
アウトになる：to be out (as far as I know, it’s used exactly in the same way as in English: sports, something you thought could be a romantic partner, maybe an idea)
