The SB Team completed a 3-game sweep against Penn State today by winning a double header 18-4 and 9-6. Today, combined with teh emotional game yesterday, gives us a 6-0 record in conference play.
In the first game, Sara continued to dominate in the circle as well as at the plate. She led all hitters by going 2 for 4 with 5 RBIs. In the circle, she pitched all 5 innings; gave up 4 ER on 5 hits. She had 3 Ks and 5 BB with 1 HBP.
Sierra Romero went long and deep, twice; finishing 2 for 3 with 3 RBIs and 4 runs scored. Caitlin Blanchard went 3 for 4 with 1 RBI and 3 runs scored. Ashley Lane went 2 for 5 with 1 RBI. Sierra Lawrence went 2 for 3 with an RBI and 3 runs scored. Colie went 3 for 3 with an RBI and 2 runs scored.
Overall we had 17 hits for the first game mercy-rule win. Romero continues to tare it up and should be the Big Ten Freshman of the Year. Lawrence will also get some love as well. Caitlin is now leading the team in BA (>50 AB).
In the second game, Lauren Sweet came up big. She went 4 for 4 with 5 RBIs and 3 runs scored. Colie went 3 for 5 with an RBI. Ashley Lane went 3 for 4 with 2 runs scored. Jaclyn Crummey went 2 for 4.
Haylie got the ball in the second game and pitched all 7 innings. She gave up 6 runs (2 ER) on 8 hits and 2 M errors. She had 6 Ks and no BB although she had 2 HBP.
I predicted Penn State to finish near the bottom of the conference. However, it is great to see such good pitching and timely hitting. The game 1 game-ball goes to Sara and the game 2 game ball goes to Lauren.
Great job again ladies. Keep it up.
