Top of the second, 0-0. Let's go girls! Lost 7-6 yesterday to Kentucky, but that was with a great comeback, making it a good game.
We need to win two more to advance, loss and we're done.
Jordan Taylor became the Michigan Softball All-Time leader in wins and strikeouts in the ND game yesterday. She now has 107 wins and 1209 Ks. This is rare on two fronts. First to break both records in the same game, in that fashion, is incredable. Second, Hutch spliet the early season playing time with Spidey this year so JT would have done it earlier in the year if not last year, had she pitched every game like most college teams.
Lets just pull for antoher 2 victories today against a very good and speedy UK team.
Elimination game, win or go home. ND lost yesterday to Kentucky before beating Western Michigan in a game that ended at 5:07.
Let's go girls need 3 wins in a row!
Today at noon the Michigan Softball team plays the Univeristy of Kentucky, in the winner's bracket of the Ann Arbor Regional.
UK defeated Notre Dame in mercy rule style 8-0. ND could only garner 2 hits against UK pitcher Chanda Bell. Bell had all her pitches working yesterday.
Hutch is trying to overcome the second injury that has caused a major change in the line up. Colie Sappoingfield busted her knee up. Hutch put Lyndsay Doyle over to Left and DP Alycia Ryan out to RF. Since moving to the No. 2 spot Lyndsay Doyle has batted .455 (5-for-11) with a double and two RBI over the last three games. Senior Marley Powers took Alycia's spot in the DP position. Marley had a good game last night.
Today's game should be a low scoring affair. Bell seems to have her game tight and JT is on fire. A few things to watch today. JT needs 1 more win to break the all-time wins recorda Michigan and just 11 more Ks to tie Ritter. I suspect JT will not get 11 today but will get close. I do think she will break both records this weekend in AA.
Anyone that needs a beer, stop by as we will be tailgating in the complex today and Sunday.
Go Blue and Its Great.....To be......A Michigan Wolverine.
Not sure why there isn't one of these yet.. Game's in Ann Arbor on ESPN and midway through the 4th inning.
Jordan Taylor's pitching great so far, only allowing 1 hit, but the Western pitcher has stepped up to the task, making the score 0-0.
Dorian Shaw was inches away from a 3-run home run in the first, but it barely went foul. The bats have to wake up!
There's the live feed. Michigan and Miami (YTM) are tied 2-2 with a couple of rubber matches ongoing. For some reason non-related to Anna Kournikova, I've taken up interest in this match. It's probably because I want to see Stanford lose in any sport, any time, and they're (surprise!) #1 in the country.
