    I see that Arizona and Oklahoma State flipped brackets? Was hoping to get another shot at OSU.

    It’s not just that, Jennifer Rocha was our pitching coach and called all our pitches until this year. Walton has pretty much taken over the pitching strategies and, in my opinion, has struggled at times. I don’t think that people understand how much of an impact losing Rocha had on the team.

    Why do you think Walton has assumed pitching responsibilities and not the pitching coach?

    Walton said in one of the post game pressers that he had called for a high rise ball but KB threw it right down the middle letting him know that she was too tired to continue. I guess I am assuming he is calling the pitches and the pitching coach is doing the prep work and they are both scouting. I would be surprised if he 100% trusted the new coach yet like he did with Rocha.
