We're headed to Tallahassee! Back to back home runs in the top of the 7th with two outs and Lindsay doyle robs ASU at the wall for the final out!
spoiler alert: i linked this
Hell yeah! Way to go girls!
That was awesome!
Went to bed with the score tied. Nice to wake up to this!
No better time than the present! WHAT A GAME!!!
a great game!
When you have players puking in the dugout you know they gave their all. What a game.
Helluva regional by the Wolverines! And an even better win tonight! Go Blue!
....and an awesome comeback by the ladies in blue!!!
I feel bad for anyone who didn't watch that! Wooo HOOOO!
Connected on Espn just in time to watch the last inning....two home runs and then an amazing over the wall catch to save the game! Instant heart attack!
The boo-birds and loads of Tigers gear in Fenway, now the Michigan women hit back to back bombs to win at ASU. YES!
What a night; time to go find my wife!
I have shit in my pants!!!!!
Talk about a great way to win that game. Awesome job ladies! Beat the Noles!
That was awesome!
Those girls are motivated!
ON THE ROAD against the host team, and an ump who gave ASU the corners all night while Haylie had to earn every strike.
SCREW YOU HOME PLATE UMP, and AWESOME game lady wolves.
Normally I hate bagging on umps about balls and strikes, but that was godawful.
but anyone can recognize inconsistency, and that ump had no clue. It's hard to say which is more embarrassing - the seriously deficient umpires (I've seen them miss multiple calls at first, which is inexcusable) or the laughable announcers. I'd go with the umpires, because they actually impact the game.
The ump today was a total bum.
That was the best ending to a game!
This team has been in some nailbiters in the last two weekends, and these went the right way!
Gotta say I didn't think it would happen. Ladies are clutch!!!
host team twice in a row. Wow.
I've never been more happy to go to Tallahassee, Florida.
Did anyone else notice that FSU's pitcher was interviewed by ESPN after their game earlier today about how the team will prepare for ASU?
Shhh. Let's not inform the FSU pitcher of her actual opponent.
that was ridiculous. They gave the briefest nod to how unlikely it was that ASU might lose two, and then moved straight into, okay, talk about the Sun Devils, your next opponent. I watched the end of that game just to see what you were talking about, and I know people like to say, of course you're fired up anyway, but if I'm coaching, everyone on the team gets a seat in front of a monitor to watch that clip.
Our team gave their all and played incredibly given the adveristy they fought through. I'm very glad to have caught this regional. Very well played by both sides and those pitchers deserve a very long ice bath. Kudos to Sappingfield and Romero for playing through flu like symptoms. Everybody really gave their best effort. Some great defense by the outfield and Monty had some very nice defensive plays at third. Of course very timely hitting by Sierra.
The first time in HISTORY Michigan has won 2-in-1 to win an NCAA Regional after losing a game.
Michigan is now 58-56-1 all-time against the Pac-12 after their record slipped to .500 with the Saturday loss to ASU.
Sierra Romero & Nicole Sappingfield were vomiting in the dugout between innings due to flu-like symptoms. This was performance was reminiscent of Cazzie Russell still playing against ohio with 103 degree fever.
Absolutely amazing. ASU has an incredible home record in the NCAA Tournament in recent years. Michigan has ended their season TWO years in a row now. And in turn, stopped the P12-loving ESPN from drooling over Dallas.
EAT MY SHORTS ESPN, BETH MOWINS
With moves like this you'd be a hit at your prom!! You have to go!
Can't stop watching those rubber arms....
unbelievable....what a way to comeback and Salvage everything...Since the team seems to play better when I dont watch I purposely didnt watch the last inning and of COURSE they pull it out..Ill watvh th replay on ESPN3....WAY TO GO BLUE...We can beat FSU!
I had that sinking feeling when that ball was hit. Looked like it was gone for sure. Hell of catch and a hell of a comeback! Go Blue!!
Doyle's game winning catch
That was a bit close for comfort.
But who cares!? We win! Go Blue!
Afterward, I kept rewinding that catch and watching it because it looked like if she didn't make the catch, that thing might have gone right on out of there. Amazing !
That's me mean mugging in the camera well! I had probably the worst angle in the entire stadium for that play...
Got the text from my dad just now. Woo!
Congrats, ladies, on two fantastic wins.
And thanks, posters, for keeping those of us who had work to do updated on the proceedings!
IM HERE FOR THE GANGBANG! yes...all caps
Whatta game! So close to OKC, let's go ladies!
considering she's 64!
Anyone catch that from Beth Mowins leading off the last inning?
Lord, was she awful.
What a great win for our women!
Man, was that exciting.
You could see how the second game really wore on Sierra - it's always the second game when that gets you.
What a catch! I'm pretty sure that was gone. Doyle is one heck of an outfielder - she made great plays all weekend.
Someone had better make a gif of Hutch looking glum, then suddenly going "OH MY GOD!" when Doyle makes the catch. It's a couple minutes after the game ends on the ESPNU broadcast. Priceless look from a coach who's seen a lot, but is still able to be surprised!
making the university proud. classy as all heck and keeps her team composed and confident.
Woo hoo! Congrats to the team and Caoch Hutch!
Great catch at the end, and she was in perfect position to make it.
Well played girls, well played. Never give up.
Definitely didn't do it the easy way!!
Way to double dip ASU today!
Two Scoops!!! Good luck ladies in FL.
It's also interesting to consider how ASU missed a catch at the wall in the first game. Doyle made the catch at the wall to seal the game at the end. It was that close. Great fight by our team throughout the entire weekend and it's that which booked them tickets to the Super Regionals. Congrats on persisting.
Luckily the super regionals will be less grueling with only 2/3 games. It will still be hot as balls in Florida though. There will also be humidity.
Game 1: Thursday, 7:00 (ESPN2)
Game 2: Friday, 4:00 (ESPNU)
Game 3: Friday, 7:00 (ESPN), if necessary
Looks like Friday will be a shorter day
It looks like they have moved game 1 from ESPN2 to ESPN.
Games 2 & 3 are still ESPNU & ESPN, respectively.
Don't forget the announcers said several players are sick, but they still managed to starch and claw their way to a victory over a good team
skin. They used the perfect amount.
Not sure how this was all able to work out so perfectly but I already had a trip planned to visit my family in Tallahassee. Since the softball team will now be playing while I am there I will be able to make it to the games. Hopefully I will be able to give my FSU family crap after the games.
What an amazing run this weekend especially in today's games. The 2 HR's and the robbing of ASU's potential game winning HR was amazing. Looking forward to seeing the upcoming games.
You'd think they'd give us a friday, saturday, sunday series. Nope you give the last team to finish the earliest possible time. NCAA logic.
This is going to be a meme on here. I can tell. It'll be posted whenever something unbelievable happens. Surprised Hutch is surprised.
You be the judge:
It''s tough to see my Devils lose, but the fact that it was at the hand of the the ladies from AA makes it much easier. Congrats to the Lady Wolverines.
and late to the Softball Posbang.
But bang me late and bang me hard, just like Doyle banging into that wall for the final out! What a comeback, what drive and determination, what a way to win it in the 7th!
GO BLUE SOFTBALL!!!
You made us proud.
You should have been watching the softball game
Bummed I issued today's games but so excited I will get to watch this team again. Congrats ladies!
you've been posbanged. +1 ^
Lindsay Doyle's catch was # 1 on Sportscenter top 10!
Yes, please! Way to go ladies! Go Blue! Suck it, ASU! you should have let us beat you Saturday. Could have avoided the tears!
We hit those home runs with only one out- but still. Fuck. Yes.
Way to go softball! Hail!
Now let's get to OKC and party like it's 2005.
