The Michigan Softball team is hosting Lil' sister tonight at Alumni Field. Nicole Sappingfield is silently missing from the line up. She injured her knee on the last play of the game last weekend. A result from a collision for a fly ball.
Lindsay Doyle is batting in the #2 slot and defensively in LF. Marley Powers takes Lindsay's DH position at the #8 slot.
Michigan comes into the weekend #2 in the nation. ASU remains #1, and hosts #12 Stanford this weekend. ASU won the first game of three today 3-1.
In the Big 10 race, Indiana won today 2-1 as they host Purdue this weekend.
UPDATE: Michigan scored 2 in the bottom of the 6th for the mercy rule win. Dorian Shaw was the offensive hero today going 2 for 2 with 3 RBIs and 1 run scored, including the 2 run walk off in the 6th. Amanda Chidester went 1 for 2 with 2 RBIs and a run scored. Caitlin Blanchard went 1 for 3 with 2 RBIs.
JT was awesome on the rubber today for the shutout. She had a perfect game going into the 5th inning. She finished with 1 hit and 13 Ks with zero walks. What a great time to get back on track from her rotator cuff injury.
Now all we need is Colie to come back next week.
Congrats to all the seniors. Thank you so very much for all your dedication to Michigan and the sport of Softball. You all will be missed very much. Everyone here on MGoBlog wishes you all the success in the world after this season.
But first, lets win a NC. Blue Dragon?????? Show us how its done.
