The Softball team split today winning 3-1 against Illinois State in the first game. They lost in the second game 1-0 against UMass. The team is in Clearwater this weekend.
Haylie Wagner got the win in the first game. She gave up 1 ER on 4 hits, she struck out 8 and walked only 2. Chiddy was the big bat today hitting a 3 run Bomb in 3 AB. Colie went 2 for 3 and scored on Chiddys dinger.
In the second game against UMass, we could not get the bats going. We could only muster 2 untimely hits. Sara Driesenga took the loss. She pitched very well though. She gave up 1 ER on 2 hits with 2 Ks and 2BB. Lauren Sweet was a sweet-spot in the lineup with a double.
UMass is a good team. If everyone remembers, we had a couple of close games with them last year. This year UMass is 4-3 so maybe they are down a little.
Overall not too disappointing, although I am sure Coach is kicking some @ss. In close games, anything can happen. This game was going down to the wire and the lucky team was going to win this one.....and they did. Sometimes in softball, the best team doesnt always win. Congrats to UMass for hanging around and getting it done. They deserved the win today. This will be a learning curve for us with out a doubt.
We play again tomorrow at 3:30 and 6pm.
