Heart Breaker or Blowout?

The shorter of the short people's ball team lost a tight one this weekend. In the championship game of a tournament they were playing, they lost by one run with the tying run on third and the go ahead run on second in the last inning. After the long weekend, talk turned to the age old question -- if you had to lose, would you rather lose a heart breaker or a blow out? Which is preferable, to not be in the game and feel like you were just outclassed from the start or to play tight and be left with the "what ifs" afterward, but have been competitive to the end?
