SB loses to #10 USF 3-2

Submitted by MGoSoftball on February 9th, 2013 at 6:25 PM

The SB stopped singing "Stayin' Alive" and the bats went silent against #10 USF.  USF Pitcher Sara Nevins kept us at bay today as we could only muster 1 hit.  

The lone hit was a 2-run dinger from Sierra Romero in the first.  Sara Driesenga started in the circle and did a very good job.  She gave up 3 runs on 5 hits; she walked none and struck out 2. Sara faced 19 batters and forced 9 ground outs and 3 fly outs.  This is a good ratio.

Coach Hutch is certainly spreading out the playing time not only with the pitchers but with position players too.

Overall, this loss was not a bad showing considering Nevins is a top ten pitcher.  Lets regroup and get them tomorrow.

Or weekend, really. At least M went 1-1 today, and it's not like this is likely to kill them in the rankings either.

Edit: The day is younger than I was giving it credit for. Maybe good things are in store.

some weight around the B1G when it comes to softball.  I would like to see the winner of the B1G Tournament gets to host the following year.  

Delany will probably want to have it at a central location to reduce travel costs.  Now with the addition of Maryland and Rutgers, travel will be a problem.  There is exactly 1200 miles between Lincoln and New Brunswick.
