Yeah needed to get her body in front to at least deflect for a single, footwork was lackingBall clearly didn't bounce like she thought it would, but I would think you need to cover it a little better as these aren't professional baseball stadiums as to the ground. Perhaps I'm wrong about that.
Athletes are people too, not just entertainment. Also think Pease threw solid.Pease needs to pretend she is not in her home of Southern California (Easton Stadium being it’s absolute Mecca in softball) and just relax and get her change-ups working to get us tomorrow to go against UCLA.
Softball is entertainment. And I want to be entertained tomorrow by softball.
I love the idea but the execution was poor. Denson left 3rd when the ball was already at 2nd. She had no shot. She should know better than that.Huge fan of the double steal attempt by Denson. It didn’t work out, but I like the try.
Big mistake by Fresno not intentionally walking Denhartog
I was looking forward to that. Piper was guilty of over coaching by bringing in Fiser to “start” the 7th. Better to leave Pease in who was crusing and then bring in Fiser if Pease gives up a couple hits. Fresno hits speed better and just came off a 3-run rally off Garcia. It turned out ok but changing just to change to me made no sense with 7-8-9 coming up.She is cruising on the mound. Hopefully she'll get through the 7th unscathed thereby saving the others.
Of course they are people. I don’t know them... but I would be willing to bet that they will be even more entertained tomorrow...actually playing the game.Athletes are people too, not just entertainment. Also think Pease threw solid.
UCLA offense didn't do much until 8th when pitcher ran out of steam. Defense needs to be perfect since a win would likely be 3-2 scoreI bet UCLA with throw Megan Faraimo against us in game one (leaving Garcia as their insurance for game two against the Gophers). Faraimo is basically the same pitcher as Michigan’s Alex Storako, who we hit so well against a couple of Sundays ago. The Gopher coaches could anticipate that likelihood and use that game plan.
Now if we get Garcia instead... I got nothing. Pray, maybe.
