They have another weekend tournament, and the first game did not go well. M drew 11 walks against the Terp pitcher, but managed just 2 hits. Driesenga went the first 5 innings and walked just 1 batter, but gave up 12 hits. Of course she is a true freshman and still on the steepest part of the learning curve. Just 2 of the 7 runs she allowed were earned, as M also made 5 errors.
“On the offense last year, they had great spacing. That’s what I remember. Great spacing, great shooters, like Nik Stauskas, who’s not there right now. But they always have someone to fill the roles. They have a cutting offense, kind of hard to guard.”
