Let's partially wrap up the Big Ten Title with a sweep of the Farmers.


Is anybody else having issues getting WBCN's audio stream to work?

for this softball game that I can't find time to comment on this thread.....except for now.


I'm on my laptop in the bathroom writing this...because I'm sitting down when I pee.


Because I can't wait to get back to Women's Softball VS. MSU.


May 8th, 2010 at 10:04 PM ^ story:

Junior RHP Jordan Taylor (Valencia, Calif./Valencia HS) pitched a complete-game one-hitter and sophomore second baseman Amanda Chidester (Allen Park, Mich./Cabrini HS) went 3-for-3 to lead the No. 2-ranked University of Michigan softball team past intrastate rival Michigan State, 10-0, on Saturday evening (May 9) in the regular-season home finale in front of 2,429 fans at the Wilpon Softball Complex, home of Alumni Field.

Taylor commanded from the pitching circle, requiring just 52 pitches to earn the complete-game, five-inning one-hitter. Taylor struck out nine batters, including the game's final two, to improve to 23-3 on the season.

Chidester paced the Wolverine offense, going 3-for-3 with three runs batted in, while junior first baseman Dorian Shaw (Burke, Va./Robinson SS) and senior rightfielder Angela Findlay (Lockport, Ill./East HS) went long for two runs apiece.


The Wolverines will travel north to East Lansing, Mich., tomorrow (Sunday, May 9) to wrap up their two-game series against intrastate rival Michigan State. The game is slated for a 1 p.m. start at the Spartans' Old College Field.

Yet another run rule game for Hutch's nine.  Absolute Big 10 dominance this season.
