We have our first Yakety Sax game of the year. The ladies routed Penn State today 12-1 in a mercy rule win. Haylie, Bree, Chiddy, Ashley and Stephanie came up big. Penn State just could not get anything going in this non conference game today.
Haylie pitched all 5 innings today. She gave up 1 ER on 3 H and had 1 BB but the impressive stat is that she had 11 Ks today. Not to shabby for a LH Freshman Pitcher. I will have to check and see if that is a record for a Freshman pitcher. She faced 20 batters. Haylie even batted for herself and got a hit.
Chiddy went 1 for 4 (HR), scored 2 runs and had 4 RBIs. Bree went 2 for 3 with 2 runs scored. Stephanie K. went 3 for 4 with 3 RBIs. Ashley went 1 for 2 (HR) with a run scored and 2 RBIs.
Coach must be be real proud of the girls thus far. Yes there was a few close games but every game cannot be a mercy rule win. We play next weekend in Boca Raton Fla. Friday we play Maryland and Long Island, Saturday we have a re-match with Kentucky then play Florida Atlantic. On Sunday we play Write State.
Overall we dominated this tournament. The other teams struggled in close games. Even #22 LSU is having trouble. Now that is not really a concern because teams have to find themselves. We have found ourselves for sure. This is going to be a great year. Thanks Ladies for your inspiration. You are a hero to many young ladies around the State of Michigan.
