I'm not an ambassador

Question

plasmid    39

King of the mount, I'm venturing out

To one of the four nearby

Straight to the knight in armor I sight

While tempting the fates I fly

Foe in my path assails with wrath

And dare I not land a blow

Forced to retreat in shameful defeat

My allies won't let me go

I'm afraid I know nothing of the sport of curling, other than that it somehow involves sliding a stone along ice as broomers sweep a path. So it's of course not what I've intended, and I'm at a loss to tell how well it would fit.

A baseball player trying to round third and head home but beaten by the throw and forced to stay at 3rd base?

Not exactly what I had in mind, but so close that I'll call this won.

I had in mind not a player, but the baseball itself. The "king of the mount" and "allies won't let me go" after the retreat would go along with that answer slightly better, but so much of the imagery is accurate for a runner heading home as well that it seems like that would be splitting hairs.
