Meram is scoring some sweet-ass goals of late
The Michigan softball team won today by scoring 3 runs in the bottom of the 7th inning to beat the Iowa Hawkeyes 3-2. The Hawkeyes had dominated the Wolverine hitters all day. Iowa took a 2-0 lead into the bottom of the 7th inning. The game-time temperature was 65 degrees under mostly cloudy skies.
In the 7th inning, Michigan pulled together and the walk off hit was delivered by Alycia Ryan with a bases loaded hit off the RF wall with the game tied and bases loaded to score Taylor Hasselbach (who was running for Dorian Shaw).
Stephanie Speierman was the starting pitcher but her struggles continues. She had control problems yesterday and they continued into today. She pitched 4 innings giving up 1 ER off 3 hits, while striking out 2 and walking 4. Hilary Payne pitched the final 3 innings to get the win. Hilary gave up 1 ER off 1 hit and gave up 2 walks and 0 strikeouts.
This was a very exciting walk off win for the girls. They played flat all day. It appeared that yesterday's loss was being carried over by the offense today. Hutch made some lineup changes by moving Dorian Shaw down to the #7 slot and moving Alycia Ryan up to the #3 slot.
The only information I could find out about JT is that she has a day-to-day rotator cuff injury. No date has been reported by Hutch as to a return date.
We travel to Wisconsin next weekend for 2 games before coming home for a May 3rd single game against EMU and May 4th DH against tosu.
UPDATE: #2 ASU swept Zona, #3 Alabama lost to Florida Saturday, #4 Georgia lost to Arkansas, #5 Tennessee lost to Mississippi St. So we should drop only to #2 possibly #3 in the poll this week.
JT is out indefinately with a rotator cuff injury. No return date has been announced by Hutched yet. The injury occured during practice 19APR11.
The Michigan softball team lost today against Iowa at Alumni Field. The score was 4-2 . This puts the team's overall record at 41-4. Game-time temperature was 71 degrees with the wind out of the north at 2 kts.
This is only the 2nd Big Ten loss, and we are now tied with Indiana atop the Big 10 standings. Stephanie Speierman was on the rubber today. This was probably her worst game of the season. She struggled in just about every inning. She gave up 3ER off 9 hits, stuck out 6 and walked 2. She also gave up one tater.
The offense didnt help her out much by leaving the bases loaded in 2 innings. The only bright spot in the line up was Nicole Sappingfield. She went 2 for 3 with the only 2 RBIs that we could muster.
Hutch did something very interesting in the 5th inning. Stephanie worked herself into a jam with bases loaded and no outs. Hutch calmly walked out to the mound and told her that she trusted her and for her to pitch her way. The next batter looped one out into LF for an RBI. Hutch still kept Stephanie in. Stephanie settled down and struck out 2 to shut down the Hawkeyes. This takes balls even from vetern coach.
This will probably drop us a few spots in the national polls but we are still good to host a regional in May.
Antione Dodsone was arrested earlier today in Huntsville Alabama on drug charges.
I just finished rewatching the movie "What About Bob?'. I forgot how good of a comedy that was.
I need more suggestions for comedies. Good ones. I want to roll out of my Lazy Boy and wretch my stomach muscles.
We are entertaining a group of about 12 and have headlined the party as "A night of Comedy". We have loaded the bongs and prepared REALLY good food.
We need IDEAS for good DVD Comedy and we need this from the likes of MgoBlog. So, please rummage thru your wonderful brains and come up with a comedy or 2.
Thank you for your consideration. Blessings!
I've been tinkering around with the depth chart by class. Putting all LBs together really isn't good enough for my liking, so I have broken it down into WILL, MIKE, and SAM considering that they are different positions. I used Magnus's blog as the guide for this. Some of the positioning might be wrong on my part. Also, for some reason the formatting is double spacing some of the players and I'm not sure why. So anyone who wants to upgrade this chart even further, have at it. Let's make this thing look as good as possible. It makes following recruiting way easier for me.
Hey guys! The Michigan Men's Rowing Team will be competing at Dad Vail in May. The team has had a very good showing in recent years, winning the 2009 Men's Points Trophy and 2 points shy of winning the Overall (Mens+Womens) Trophy with just a Men's team. They are three time defending ACRA National Champions and they accomplish all this on very little funding from the University (they are a club varsity team). Much of the team's expenses are covered by team dues and work by the rowers and coxswains themselves.
If you can please help us out a little (and are Facebook-inclined) , go to this page, like it, go to discussions, then contest, and reply with "University of Michigan" to help us get our regatta expenses paid for. Thank You!
