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.
