In a re-match of last year's NCAA SB Regional Final, we got revenge 3-0 against #22 Kentucky. We scored all of our runs in the 3nd inning. Haylie walked and Crummy was pr. Lauren Sac bunt her over to 2nd for the first out. Amy punched one up the middle and Crummy took third. Amy then stole 2nd. Stephanie K doubled down the lf line scoring both Crummy and Amy. Lindsay singled and this pushed Stephanie to third. Bree popped to ss for the 2nd out. Lindsay stole 2nd and the catcher over threw the bag. Crummy scored and Lindsay took third. Colie struck out for the 3rd out.
Today was a big test for us coming off yesterday's loss to Maryland. We came up big when we needed to. Hayle pitched all 6 innings for the shutout and scattered 6 hits. She struck out 3 and walked no one although she had 2 hbp.
Great job ladies on a hard-fought win. This avenges the loss to Ky last year and Md yesterday. Coach Hutch mixed it up very nicely today. She put Ashley at 1b and had the girls manufacture runs when we needed them.
We play Florida Atlantic later today. The schedule says 6pm put the tournament is behind by an hour or two.
Chelsea and Birmingham drew 1-1 this morning, meaning there will be a replay for the two teams.

Man U is out, Man City is out, Chelsea is floundering, I would love to see Everton do something amazing in the FA cup

The Michigan Softball Team won the second game of 2 today in Boca Raton Fla by beating Long Island (NY) 4-0. We lost the first game to Maryland 7-3.
In the first game, Maryland Ace Kendra Knight was just too much for us. She finished the game with 6 Ks and 11BB. We just could not get the timely hits. Sara Driesenga took the loss but pitched rather well. Sara gave up only 2 ER off 12 hits with 2 Ks and 1BB. We committed 5 errors in the game that killed us.
In the second game against Long Island, Haylie Wagner got the 4-0 shutout win. Haylie finished with 4 Ks and 1 BB. The offense was led by Ashley Lane who hit a Bomb (1 for 3) with 2 RBIs.
Coach gave Chiddy the game off to allow some others to get into the lineup. These early games give the coaches an opportunity to evaluate the young talent.
This puts our record at 5-1 thus far. Our next game is tomorrow at 1pm against #22 Kentucky. This will be a great match up for us.
They have another weekend tournament, and the first game did not go well. M drew 11 walks against the Terp pitcher, but managed just 2 hits. Driesenga went the first 5 innings and walked just 1 batter, but gave up 12 hits. Of course she is a true freshman and still on the steepest part of the learning curve. Just 2 of the 7 runs she allowed were earned, as M also made 5 errors.
The Michigan Softball Team moves up to #11 this week up from T16. This comes on the heels of a fabulous opening weekend where the ladies went 4-0. This is the first look at SB as most teams started play.
Former #1 Arizona State dropped to #5 with 2 losses. Tennessee jumped from #14 to #10 by going 5-1 this weekend. It looks like the nation is looking at us real hard now.
Coach Hutch has the girls in mid-season form. Congrats ladies.
