The #12 Michigan Softball Team (32-7) defeated WMU 8-0 in a classic mercy-rule win. Coach Hutch took the opportunity to get bench players into the game.
We scored all 8 runs in the first inning. Caitlin Blanchard went 3 for 3 with 3 RBIs and a run scored. She continues to impress and has her batting average about .400. Amy Knapp went 2 for 3 with 1 RBI and a run scored. Amy had a triple today. Ashley Lane went 2 for 3 with a run scored. Lyndsay Doyle went 2 for 2 with 1 RBI and 1 run scored.
Haylie Wagner was the starting and winning pitcher. She pitched all 5 innings and gave up 0 runs off 3 htis. She struck out 6 and walked 0.
This was a great opportunity for the bench players to get some reps. Coach has the Freshmen performing key roles and Coach does a great job of cycling the players in the line-up. The bench players received some quality reps today.
