The Michigan Softball team avoided a rare Big Ten sweep today by beating Minny 5-3. It wasn't easy however as it took 10 innings to do so.
Haylie Wagner hit the GW HR in the 10th inning for the win. Amy Knapp scored the insurance run off a Bree Evans single. Haylie finished 1 for 4 with the lone RBI and run. She also pitched the entire game. She finished with 3 ER off 5 hits. She struck out 7 and surrendered 5 walks.
Amy Knapp went 2 for 3 with an RBI and 2 runs scored. Bree Evans was in the lead off spot today and went 3 for 6 with an RBI. Lauren Sweet went 2 for 4 with an RBI.
It is good to see Bree back in the #1 hole and she does not appear to be injured. Coach must have just wanted to juggle the lineup yesterday and put Bree in the #9 hole.
We stay atop the Big Ten standings sitting on 12-3.
2) Purdue 10-4 lost to Illinois today 8-6, so they are 1 game behind.
3) Wisconsin 11-4 beat Penn St. 9-0
4) Nebraska 10-5 lost to ohio 4-0
I think it is safe to say that we will not get a #1 seed to host a regional. It is possible that we would be a #2 seed in an Ann Arbor regional with the MAC champion and possibly Megangoblue's team or maybe my buddy's team Valpo. This would be a long shot.
