The Michigan Softball team continued to struggle with the bats today against Illinois State. We lost 5-1. We only had 2 hits; one home run by Ashley. The other was from Colie.
Sara was in the circle and took the loss. She struggled a little by giving up 2 walks, an IF single then a throwing error. All this led to a 5-run 5th inning for Illinois State. Haylie came on in relief and did a good job.
Overall, we need to get the bats swinging. I know this sounds easy but Coach is pulling her hair out right now. This is the most frustrating part of being a coach. We are NOT facing dominate pitching so we should be T-ing off, right? Well it just doesnt work that way. Im sure the girls are just as frustarted as Coach is. This is something that they have to work through.
Ladies, we are behind you 100%. Dont give up and continue to take extra BP. Stay focused and believe in yourselves. You are all great ball players and you will pull through this. Trust in yourselves and trust your coaches. Dont lose the mental part of the game.
