With all the excitment of the BB game, I wanted to throw in this other piece of good news as well. SB Team 37 completed its sweep of the FAU Tourney in Boca Raton. They defeated the home Owls 1-0 by the strong arm of Freshman Megan Besta.
Megan gets the game ball as she dominated the Owls the entire game. She scattered 3 hits and finished with 11 Ks and 1 BB. She raised her record to 5-0 and gives us that Starting-Pitcher quality from the pen. She will certainly help us in the second half of the season.
The offense we held in check by Owl Freshman Pitcher Kylee Hansen. Kylee only allowed 1 run off three hits. She had 5 Ks and 3 BBs. The key 6th inning saw Silo hit a double in the gap with 2 outs. Romo was on the bench for a much-needed rest but came on to pinch hit. Kylee walked Romo which at the time was a good move. With two outs, Kylee hit Taylor which loaded the bases for us. Then a frazzled Kylee threw for straight balls to Lauren to force in the lead and winning run.
Overall this is the best weekend by far for us. We beat #5 Kentucky and dominated the rest of the pack prior to today. Today's game was a test of wills and our roster top to bottom is much better. Megan should be recognized again this week for her performance.
Coach Hutch gets much love for her ability to juggle this talented pitching staff and give players much needed rest at the perfect opportunity.
