Sara D. Throws a No-No; M SB wins 3-0

Submitted by MGoSoftball on February 23rd, 2013 at 7:59 PM

Sara Driesenga threw a no-hitter today against Hofstra.  She came within 3 batters of a perfect game.  She walked a batter in the 2nd.  Then both starting Freshmen made and error each; one each in the 5th and 6th innings.  She struck out 9 of the 24 batters she faced.  Sara has really dug in and took over now that Haylie is on the bench.  What a wonderful problem to have: 2 legit starting pitchers.

Sara was a factor at the plate too.  She went 1 for 3 with an RBI.  Sierra Lawerence hit a solo bomb in the 5th to break the scoreless tie.  We ended up with 7 hits on the game.

Coach Hutch is really mixing up the batting order.  She used 12 players in the game.   The team is now 9-2 with one more game this weekend.

Great Job Sara.  We never lost faith in you.  You make the entire MGo Family proud.

Congratulations to Driesenga on that rare feat!

I went back through the softball stats, and if I did the calculation right, her season ERA is exactly 1.00. Simply awesome. Thanks for the updates, MGoSoftball.

Driesenga just continues to impress in the early going.  Once Haylie is back, we are going to have an absolutely dynamite duo in the circle.  It is so great to think about the fact that both of these highly-talented young ladies are just sophomores.  We still have 2+ more seasons to enjoy watching them mow down opposing batters!
