Remind me to buy WCWS tickets early next year regardless of expected team strength. Tickets on StubHub going for $1,000-$3,600 and even parking passes going for several hundred $$. Wow.
Where? There's $30 OF for Monday champ game 1
Bottom line is that they gave themselves a chance and then kicked it away. Can't do that at this level. Battled hard, but can't make those mistakes and expect to beat elite teams. Just doesn't happen.Demoralizing going into Washington that we had to pull amber. Just want a shot at Florida on Saturday
They can compete with these teams, no question. But have to stay aggressive and focused throughout. Did that up until the sixth. Not good enough here. Need a full, focused approach all seven innings every time out.For the most part they didn't get blown out. Yes 2-7. With a little luck was only going to be 2-3 or 2-4 going into the 7th. Washington is a good team as well. Shoots, they all are for that matter. Going to be tough but we can do it.

Maybe some "wide eyes" on the big stage. I mean this is the real deal and the first time here for everyone including the coaches. You know you are in the WCWS when you play Washington in the "losers" bracket. UCLA is the real deal and ranked #2 for a reason. We need to play our A game for seven innings in all facets of the game at this point in the season. Saturday is a new day.We beat Georgia in game 2 because they gave us 5 outs in inning 1 before DenHartog's HR. Today we returned the favor to UCLA in inning 6; Arneson could've contented herself with a long single and Partain could've fielded that ball. The Gophers seemed 'out of it' for about the first 4 innings.
Bates gets to balls that are basehits against other players. She could get an error on a play where other players don't even get to it. She is a defensive freak. Harper should be an All-American DP because of her bat. Harper is one of the best players in the country. Best SS in the country is Bates. Harper is clearly a better hitter.
