The Michigan Softball team won a close one this afternoon 3-2 against the Hofstra Pride. We took a 2-0 lead into the top of the 7th. Sara Driesenga got the start and pitched very well through 6 innings. The top of the 7th was not her inning. She gave up a hit and a critical HBP. Haylie came in but could not shut the Pride down. They scored 2 runs to tie the game.
In the bottom of the 7th, Stephanie Kirkpatrick SAC Crummey over to 2nd and Bree Evens doubled her home for the win.
Sara finished the game with 4 hits, 2 ER, 4K, !BB and 1 HBP. Haylie got the win in relief. She had 1 walk, 1 strikeout and 1 HBP.
Lauren Sweet was the big bat today going yard for 2 RBI and another single. Caitland Blanchard went 2 for 3. We ended up with 7 hits total which is much better than yesterday.
Coach mixed it up even more today. She had Mandy playing 1B, Lauren in RF and Caitland C. It is good to see the ladies fight back after a disappointment yesterday.
