M SB beats #22 Kentucky 3-0

Submitted by MGoSoftball on February 18th, 2012 at 5:10 PM

In a re-match of last year's NCAA SB Regional Final, we got revenge 3-0 against  #22 Kentucky.  We scored all of our runs in the 3nd inning.  Haylie walked and Crummy was pr.  Lauren Sac bunt her over to 2nd for the first out.  Amy punched one up the middle and Crummy took third.  Amy then stole 2nd.  Stephanie K doubled down the lf line scoring both Crummy and Amy.  Lindsay singled and this pushed Stephanie to third.  Bree popped to ss for the 2nd out.  Lindsay stole 2nd and the catcher over threw the bag.  Crummy scored and Lindsay took third.  Colie struck out for the 3rd out.

Today was a big test for us coming off yesterday's loss to Maryland.  We came up big when we needed to.  Hayle pitched all 6 innings for the shutout and scattered 6 hits.  She struck out 3 and walked no one although she had 2 hbp.

Great job ladies on a hard-fought win.  This avenges the loss to Ky last year and Md yesterday.  Coach Hutch mixed it up very nicely today.  She put Ashley at 1b and had the girls manufacture runs when we needed them.

We play Florida Atlantic later today.  The schedule says 6pm put the tournament is behind by an hour or two.

Baseball team beat Seton Hall today and should have beaten Pittsburgh last night. Gave up 5 runs in the last two innings to lose by one. Grrr. Only blemish so far. Go Blue!!

I agree.  Coach mixed it up a little today as well.  Maryland is going to surprise a lot of teams this year.  They have an awesome pitcher.  Md should win their regional.

This year's team is a young team.  We are trying to find our inner soul.  Anyone of the 3 pitchers thus far could be the starting pitcher.  The defense typically is stellar too.

I am really excited about this year's team.  We should go to Oklahoma City (fingers crossed).
