The SB Team came back strong today with 2 convincing victories against C. Arkansas and ULL. We took one on the chin yesterday against ULL.
In the first game against C. Arkansas, we won 7-0 on the strength of the Long Ball from Silo and Romo. The combo account for 5 of the 7 RBIs. Lauren Sweet got hot by going 3 for 4 with an RBI.
Freshmen Pitcher Megan Besta proved that she is deserving of FOY honors by throwing a 1 hitter.. She had 13 Ks with only 1 BB. What a wonderful game for Megan on the biggest stage.
In the second game, we took ULL in Mercy-Rule Fashtion 15-1. The offense was led by Romo again. He went deep, hard and long with the bases loaded. She ended the game 3 for 4 with 4 RBIs and 3 runs scored. Colie went 3 for 4 with 2 RBIs and 2 runs scored. Lauren Sweet continued playing hot today by going 2 for 3 with 2 RBIs and 1 run scored.
Haylie was the starting and winning pitcher. She allowed 1 run (ER) off 5 hits. She struck out 5 and walked 1.
This puts us at 7-2 with our 2 losses from #3 and #20 ranked teams. The Florida Loss will stick in our craw for a while until we get back home and into the Big Ten Season and another likely Big Ten Championship.
