    Hopefully we’ll see some energy, passion and an interest in taking the series. Seemed awful flat so far. Go Gators!

    6-2, close play at home for out #2.
    Another BB, 1-0 mizzou
    F-9 for out 3.

    Mizzou missed a chance to blown it open. Mizzou fouling off a ton of pitches, esp those scary fly balls down LF line. EH just doesn't have that strike out pitch. EH at over 50 pitches after 1 inn.

    HT just doesn’t have a strikeout pitch once she gets to two strikes. At least she limited the damage. Zone better be equally tight for opposing pitcher.

    Falby 5-3
    Wallace F-7
    Echols F-7

    All 3 batters with called strikes on balls low and away. No consistency so far.

    Gators have a pitching problem-no shutdown pitcher and they can't hit good pitching.

    Umpires have one job. Idc what the strike zone is as long as it’s consistent for both teams.

    Blue finally called a high strike for EH after Walton came out to talk. No idea what he said but followed by 3 quick outs.
    6-3 out 1
    K out 2
    F-7 out 3
    It's not baseball but EH already at 69 pitches.

    Roe F-9 swung at ball 4
    Goelz Infield single, reversed for out 3

    And because they can't get strikeouts, many more balls are being put in play, thus stressing the defense. This is leading to many more errors than Gator teams are used to.

    I think he was just waiting on the ump to come out so he could complain about his strike zone.
