  1. Congratulations to Carlee Wallace for being named SEC Player of the Week. BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Junior catcher Carlee Wallace has been selected as the SEC Player of the Week, announced by the league office Tuesday. She is the second player from Auburn to receive the weekly award in 2017, joining senior infielder Haley Fagan. Wallace paced the Tigers last weekend with a .538 batting average through seven hits, including three for extra bases, in three games played. She led Auburn to its first sweep of Georgia in Athens in program history. The Alpine, Calif. native reached base in nine of 15 plate appearances and was a perfect 4-for-4 when leading off an inning over the three-game week. Wallace successfully advanced runners at a .571 clip and touted a 1.000 slugging percentage. She nearly hit for the cycle in Auburn’s 13-4 win Saturday, smashing a home run, triple and single in the rout. The junior has reached base safely in 18 of the last 20 contests, including 12 of the previous 13 games. Since moving to the leadoff spot in the lineup, Wallace has been nothing short of brilliant. She boasts a .402 batting average with 33 hits, including 11 doubles, two triples and five home runs. Over that span, Wallace leads the team with a .768 slugging percentage and a .514 on-base clip. Wallace and the Tigers travel to Samford for a non-conference clash Wednesday at 6 p.m. before returning home for a three-game series against Ole Miss, April 7-9.
  2. Glad McCrackin got to end the game - she had a rough one in the field today. WAY TO GO LADIES!
  3. error at second and what should have been a strike out but, no Georgia has two on and no outs Come on ladies!
  4. So what was the issue for the Georgia player - just a substitution or an injury?
  5. Carlson is a great fielder as a pitcher.
  6. That called 3rd strike on Perry was the same spot as the first pitch of the ballgame and called a strike. So have to give this blue credit for consistency.
  7. Agree if the runner changes her course resulting in contact - you can get interference, but on that play I did not see contact, so the runner changing her course to avoid contact is not an issue
  8. No issue about her running out of the base line (unless she is doing it to avoid a tag). runner was right to run out to avoid the interference issue. Not sure about this needing to make a throwing stuff unless that is in the college officials manual.
  9. Yeah, if the call is not made, hard to reverse it. Fagan did field the ball cleanly and I am not sure there was any contact. So I can understand the no call but it was obvious by Cooper's reaction she thought interference, that is why she signaled to Fagan to not throw it. Shame when the players know the rules better than the officials.
  10. Well, we won't see that umpire in Auburn. I am sure Clint will call the office and say don't schedule her for an Auburn game. Blew the obstruction call last night and blows the interference call today.
  11. so is our defense falling apart or just good hits by Georgia?
  12. Similar play last night and ruled an error by the Georgia 3rd baseman (hurts AU player batting average) play on Cooper ruled a hit?
  13. okay that was the "hit" inning for Georgia and they only get 1 run. So time to put 8 runs on them.
  14. Seems like every game we have one bad inning on defense with errors and one bad inning in giving up hits. That was the bad inning for errors but at least did not give up any runs.
  15. Sure would have been nice if Wallace could have got that double last nice but I'll take a lead off double for the start of this game.
