The softball team split their two games today in the Citris Classic in Orlando Florida. The first game against LSU, we could not overcome some big LSU innings and lost 14-6. In the second game we defeated James Madison University
Against LSU, Sierra Romero was the big gun. She went 3 for 4 with an RBI and a run scored. Lyndsay went 2 for 4 and Colie went 2 for 5. Sara was the losing pitcher. She was bounced after only 2 innings of work. She gave up 3 ER on 6 hits. She had 1 K and 0 BB.
Sara just had a bad start. It happens and it is a part of the game. It could have been that double bean buritto she ate for dinner last night or something else. Coach Hutch is "riding the hot horse". Stephanie came in a pitched an inning and Alice closed it out. It was just not our day in the circle. That's ok. Make the adjustments and move on, nothing to see here.
In the second game against James Madison U, Sara got back on that horse and rode it like its hot. She pitched a gem in the 9-1, 6 inning Mercy-rule win. Sara scattered 4 hits from the 22 batters faced. She had 10Ks and 0BB.
Sierra Romero had the hot bat in the second game as well. She went 3 for 4 with 2 RBIs and 2 runs scored. Ashley Lane went 2 for 4 with an RBI and a run scored.Jacklyn Crummy went 2 for 4 with a run scored.
Overall, a good but not great day today. LSU is a very good team and with Haylie out, statistics say Sara was bound to have a "bad" start with all the innings she has pitched. Great Job Sara. Keep up the great work.
