    I looked it up. Backes has a 0.88 era, .67 WHIP, has thrown 24 innings giving up 13 hits. Has struck out 21 and walked 3. Yep. Pitching well.

    UCLA pitching also a disaster.

    Wild. Its 20-8 UGA in the bottom of 5th going for run rule. But in the top of 5 Emily Digby hit a 3 run bomb to make it 23-8 but it didn't count. Jayden Fields on third simply strolled off the base, long before the pitch, as if leading off in baseball. She was called out and the home run didn't count. Digby then struck out.

    Sunday’s game versus College of Charleston has been rescheduled for 2:30 pm in anticipation of clearing weather. Fingers crossed!

    Gators next opponent North Florida is not half bad. They lost to a usually good James Madison by one run and beat Southern Miss who have beaten the Gators in the past. The T-Mobile tournament next weekend is a horse of a completely different color. They play three lower echelon Div 1 teams with a combined record of 6 & 17. Talk about leading hogs to the slaughter. Scrappy and Ocala could field a team of old Diamond posters and win with ease.

    I hear Scrappy has trouble hitting the off speed stuff!

    You don't get on base on a sac fly either. But that counts for on base percentage.

    Lexie got the start for Louisiana against Baylor. Lasted one inning. Gave up three hits, a walk, and a wild pitch but got out of it with only one run as one out on a sac bunt, one out on an out at home from left field and a line drive to shortstop. She did not come out for the second inning.

    I am not sure that is true - does not make sense in terms of what the stat measures. Where are you getting that SF counts in OBP? If it does I will join you in pondering the absurdity.

    From baseball reference. There are many sites that explain the same thing on how you determine obp. I initially thought it absurd until it dawned on me and Phil that on a sac bunt you are intentionally giving yourself up but on a sac fly you are not. It does make sense. https://www.baseball-reference.com/bullpen/On_base_percentage

    I googled that explanation also. Their reasoning makes sense in distinguishing a SF from a Sac Bunt.
