Don't mean to derail the thread, but I was at the Drake game and she is in fact pretty good, but we helped her. The Drake pitcher relied on her rise ball for her K's. Whenever she got to 2 strikes, you could bank the rise was coming and we couldn't lay off. She's a good sized young lady who was consistently between 66 and 70 mph. It was until the 4th that she threw a changeup. MM was on point today and she had a low ball umpire behind the plate, which she loves. Most of the hits off MM were twizzlers hit off the end of the bat that found a hole. For the most part our defense was good. We had several DP's and most were started by Taylon, but one around the horn DP was started by Tannon. Those were nice plays. Podany misplayed a ball in center field and I gave her the benefit of the doubt because it was late in the afternoon and she was looking right into the sun, but the very next inning the Drake CF had the exact same situation and she made the play. Tannon's dinger was a no doubter. Getting our first hit in the 6th is not good. Our hitting has got to improve or our SEC schedule is going to be ugly.
