Florida leads 4-3 in the bottom of the 7th. Barnhill is in the game and Ole Miss has a runner on 3rd after a misplay by Caraway in the outfield.
Bases loaded for the Rebel’s with 0 outs.
Misplay by Caraway, hit batter and walk.
Ole Miss ties the game by a hit by pitch. 4-4 with 2 outs.
Heading to extra innings again.
I feel like Walton should have kept Hightower in there. She was doing a pretty good job.
here we go again.
Credit KB for fighting through the inning even with the 2 hit by pitch bases given up. This had the earmark of yet another KB late inning meltdown when something goes wrong. Caraway and Roberts really let her down this last inning.
Ole Miss has the bases loaded in the bottom of the 8th with one out.
Grand slam by Ole Miss. They win 8-4
Barnhill had no business in that game after throwing over 200 pitches last night.
Walk. Underhand throw to 1st that almost ends up in the out field. Walk. Grand Slam walk off HR. OK. The meltdown still occurred. Just an inning later this time. You just can't give away games like this team has done this year. It would certainly would help our pitchers if they got just a tad more run support to help avoid these circumstances.
Let's take the series tomorrow! KB can only do so much. Defense let her down-we should have won this in regulation. Go Gators!
Lugo and the offense is going to have to bring it tomorrow.
Barnhill continues to be inept when it comes to fielding. She freaked out and threw it underhanded way off target which ended up costing us the game. Teams know this too. She really hasn't developed her game at all and has no clutch gene in her when the pressure's truly on. For that reason I'll never consider her our best ever. Give me Gourley when you need 3 outs to end a game any day.
Didn't catch the game, but surprised KB pitched, figured it would be Lugo/Hightower. Tough loss. I recall when 4 runs by UF was almost always a sure win.
Just joined Thursday? You know not what you speaketh.
Yeah, it's been a head-scratching year with the 3 run-rule losses, the number of runs we've given up throughout the season, as well as the number of errors we've made in clutch situations.
she has the talent, just needs a little seasoning/experience playing at the SEC level and some confidence, I think she will be a reliable stalwart by seasons end
She’s the reason why Florida has won so many games this season.
Being new here automatically means I don't know anything about Gator softball? Ha.
