The Michigan Softball Team was one key hit away from victory tonight against #7 Oklahoma. We had the bases loaded in the bottom of the 5th with only 1 out, and could not get it done. We had a strike out and a simple ground out to end the inning.
What a difference a year makes. Last year we would have got that key hit to win the game. This year we are looking on ebay to buy a key hit. I checked too and could not find any.
Haylie pitched very well tonight. She ended up yielding 1 ER on 7 hits. She had 3 strikeouts and 3 walks. All in all not a bad outing for Haylie. She certainly pitched well enough to win.
We ended up with 4 hits total. Amy had 2, Colie and Lyndsay had one each. What a tough way to lose. I know the girls are heart-broken because they are playing well enough to win most of these close games. Maybe I should look on Craigslist for a key hit.
