Stephanie Speierman tossed a complete game this afternoon by defeating the University of Northern Florida 4-1. The lone UNF run was unearned and she scattered 5 hits over 7 innings with 9Ks and 2BB. She took a scoreless game into the 7th but the defense could not hold it for her.
For the season Stephanie is 6-0 with an ERA of 2.08. She has 35Ks and 16BB. Her opponent BA is .175.
The offense was led by Bree Evans who went 2 for 2, scoring 2 runs. Amanda Chidester went 2 for 4 with 1 RBI. Nicole Sappingfield, Lindsay Doyle and Taylor Hasselbach each had 1 hit each
For the season the team is batting .392, with an OBP of .492 while taking 55 BB and giving up 49Ks.
The defense played like crap today, making 3, uncharacteristic errors. One, of which, resulted in the lone run. Hutch cannot be happy with that. The team is gelling just fine, there is little to worry about. The offense has 55 BB compared to 49Ks, this indicates the team is seeing the ball well.
The pitching has been dominate this year with 78Ks and only 16 BB. A good team will have a 2 to 1, strikeout to bb ratio. We have a nearly 5 to 1 ratio. This team will go deep in the playoffs for sure, baring any injuries.
We play again tonight at 8pm. It should be streamed if anyone cares to watch a championship caliber team. Go to the softball page on Mgoblue.com.
