Good grief.  Pitching hasn't been responsible for 1 loss all season, but keep beating that drum if it makes you happy.

If the pitchers give up more than 2 runs, the game is on them.....what's so hard to understand about that?  :dunno:

I would think errors would come in to play here.  This just sounds a bit simplistic (but I’m certainly no softball expert)

I wouldn't mind a little wine to close out G1 tbh, keep Kaylee fresh for G3.

I had to think about that one a little, but it finally sunk in.  Giving Mizzou a different look with the lefty might not be a bad idea, but she can't go through the order more than once.  The game's in the top of the 5th, so Mizzou has 9 more outs.  Carlson may have to pitch some today.  Like WT said, there may not be a game 3 if the weather forecast is correct.

Yeah, I wouldn't give Chardonnay too long a leash either way, but looking at the forecast there's still a reasonable chance they play G3, I think a cellar visit is still in order. With a 3-0 lead our chance of winning is so high either way that it's kind of a waste to pitch KC again.

That was a joke of course.    Would be nice to see our offense break lose for 5 or 6 in some SEC games and give pitchers a little breathing roon.

Podany walks after the 1st pitch is out of the zone.   Runners on 1st and 3rd for Taylon Snow.

Snow flies to shallow left. Not deep enough to score the run.  2 outs for Casey McCrackin

Draper strikes out looking on a pitch that didn't look like a strike at all.    Auburn extends its lead to 4-0 after the solo homer by Alyssa Rivera.

Announcer says Rivera has 6 homers in the last month?  I didn't realize that.  This kid's a player.

Draper's back foot was out of the box if she had swung and made contact on strike 3. 

Pretty sure it was on of the box regardless of whether she swung the bat or not.   :poke:
