Gators win the series and go for the sweep Sunday
I think Lindsey was the hero tonight
Thanks Growl-don't forget to change your clock-don't want to be late for church.
Chronister threw 5 straight strikes after falling behind 3-0
set clocks for
She's 2-0 this year and we really need that from her.
I am really happy for KC. Graduated Cuma laude, possibly summacum laude, and has found her place on this team.
I was really disappointed thinking that we couldn't beat a mediocre Auburn team at home. But those girls dug-in, fought hard and brought home a hard-won victory.
Way to go Gator softball!
Very proud of this team.
Thanks again, Growl!
Way to battle, girls!
Was anyone surprised that Chronister came in rather than Hightower?
True, it seems like this year Chronister is doing much better than years past. Maybe the new pitching coach is good for her.
Hope Chronister doing better is a trend and not a fluke.
(And my entire freezing cold body thanks Hannah Adams for finally walking us off, after so many earlier opportunities fell apart. This was a very exciting game, but would have been better if it were about 30 degrees warmer!)
Yeah, I could almost feel the warmth of my car at that point....
To be fair though, before tonight Sipos was 4-for-4 on SAC bunts on the season.
I'm very happy for Chronister. All her studies may had some affect on her time pitching.I hope she has a great and fun year!!!!!
I was very surprised. They really seem to view KC as that " change of pace" reliever after Lugo or Rylee.
Love seeing her finally get some success in her senior year. I’m thinking maybe Hightower starts today?
Crossed my mind too...but I bet she relieves Rylee today
Why last nights game was in extra innings to start with should be concerning, but Deans decision to go to a P in 11th whos only previous outing was getting shelled by Binghamton means only one of 2 things..
1. He just conceded. Which Id actually be ok with, point was proven. AU cant score on any quality of pitching & UF wasn't going to score anytime soon on Yarbrough(avg at best IMO) but best AU has by far & only took Dean 3 weeks to figure that out.
2. Dean is even more incompetent than I thought. Most likely the case & quite the statement b/c hes a joke. But hey the atmosphere is "good" & hes not yelling at players.. AU getting exactly what deserve.
Yall could pitch the popcorn vendor and get same results from AU,,zero output.. Like 2 players on roster that could even walk on a quality roster.
Buddy of mine coached Rivera......she's a really good player. That's the one I wish UF had
Shes great vs mid major/bad pitching. Not so much vs good pitching.. If half as good as she thought shed be on to something. Played for P.R. National team also. One of the 2 remaining Meyer recruits, other being Snow 3b. by far best 2 on team, shocker. . But would of been bench warmers Im guessing if Meyer stayed.
Snows sister , Taylon wanted to play for real team(coach) so transferred to Oklahoma,,,pretty bad when cant keep 2 sisters together.
During Riveras FR year, my son was watching her for first time. I said this is the girl that thinks shes Bryce Harper. So shes been called Bryce by us since..lol
Probably one of better athletes there is in softball, just not great softball skills. Like that ball she dropped last night, should of been easy catch. Not her but also the ball off wall in LF is caught 5 years ago by an AU OF guaranteed. Just totally different level from same program only 4 years later. Oh and the game tying single,,just an average SS that knows how to judge ball of bat makes that play.. Your Ss had same play later on.
BTW todays & Fridays starter Handley has hit 77 on gun. Fastest Iv seen in 20 years of watching college softball. Believe Abbott was 75. But Handley has zero clue where its going, usually walks 7 or 8. Friday one of here best outings control wise. Transfer 2 years ago from a MAC school.. Akron maybe, forget.
