M SB stays atop B1G with 5-1 win @ Wiskey

Submitted by MGoSoftball on May 5th, 2012 at 3:09 PM

The University of Michigan Softball Team stayed on top of the B1G standing by beating Wiskey in Madison 5-1.  We scored 5 runs in the 3rd inning off Ashley Lane's Grand Slam to Center Field.  Chiddy hit a RBI single earlier in that same inning.  We play the second of the DH at 3PM.

Haylie Wagner pitched an almost flawless game.  She gave up 1 ER off 7 hits.  She walked 2 and struck out 4.  She pitched a complete game too.

Overall, that is the Michigan Team we know and love.  We jump out early, putting the opposing team on the ropes.  Then let the pitching settle in and work magic.

Coach has to be very pleased with the ladies performance today.  Minny helped us by beating Purdue.  Indiana is currently beating Nebraska 3-0 in the 4th Inning.  So we should be able to but some room between us and the rest of the B1G.

Things are looking really good. Team has to close out this series though and get the sweep, to have a huge confidence level heading into the final weekend against a good purdue team.

Would be really great to see the B1G trophy being presented on senior day.

I made an idiotic comment about the predator at ohio.

They're only gone for a week though, so I've been told by a mod. Good thing, because I don't think I could handle not being able to post threads. I contribute a lot of things on here.

My fault though.

I had my doubts about that pitching change for a couple of innings. I guess Coach knows best after all. How helpful to have losses by Purdue and it looks like Nebraska, too.
