The Michigan Softball Team had its first Mercy-Rule win today against EMU at Alumni Field. Today's game was not on the schedule; however, after two games in the Judi Garman Classic were canceled due to rain, Coach decided to get one in before the Big Ten Season.
Sara Driesenga got the win. She pitched 5 innings, gave up 2 unearned runs (0 ER) off 3 hits. She struck out 3 and walked none. She helped herself with the bat as well by going yard with a runner on base. She finished the game 1 for 2 with 2 RBIs and a run scored from the round tripper.
Chiddy hit a grand slam in the 8 run, 3rd inning. She ended up 1 for 2 with the 4 RBIs and the run scored from the dinger. Bree went 2 for 3 with 2 RBIs and 2 runs scored.
Coach continues to juggle the lineup. She had Chiddy at 1st, Steph and 3rd and Amy at SS. Colie was batting in the 9 hole and Lauren was batting in the 8th slot.
Not to shabby for the first game at home this year. It was nice to get a tune-up prior to the Big Ten season.
Blue Dragon? You know what to do.
