The Michigan Softball team won again today by defeating Tulsa 4-3.   Hutch gave the ball to Stephanie Speierman.    She struggled early and gave up 3 ER on 6 hits, while having 3 Ks and 1 BB.  She pitched 4.2 Innings.  Jordan Taylor pitched 2.1 innings in relief.  She faced 9 batters, with 0 runs, 4Ks, 2 hits, 0 BB.

The offense was led by Amanda Chidester going 1-2 (double) and knocking in 2.  Stephanie Kirkpatrick had a single and an RBI.

We play again today (19FEB11) at 1pm against #26 UMass.

Unfortunately, the home schedule isn't as attractive as last year's.  We have the Big Ten schedule plus 4 MAC schools (EMU, WMU, CMU, BGSU).  The first home games are against Bowling Green on Wednesday March 30 at 4 pm and against Indiana on April 2 & 3 at 2 pm each day.

Probably the best home games will be--

A 2-game series against Iowa on April 23 & 24 (Saturday at 6 pm, Sunday at 2 pm)

A doubleheader against Ohio State on Wednesday, May 4 (first game at 5 pm).

Senior night against Michigan State on Friday, May 13 (7 pm).

Save some time on your calendar for a regional on May 20-22 and a super-regional the next weekend.  If Michigan lives up to its pre-season raking, they will almost certainly host a regional and are about 50/50 to host a super-regional.
