UB Softball dropped a pair of games to open their weekend yesterday, falling 9-4 to Kennesaw State and 8-1 to Mercer to open Mercer's Orange and Black Invitational.
It's been two weeks since we last saw the Bulls in action, but it was much of the same as we've seen in this tough start to the season in which the Bulls are trying to replace a ton of experience from last year:
- Susceptibility to the big inning: 10 of UB's 17 runs against came in single-inning rallies
- Defensive issues: UB commited 12 errors on the day, 6 in each game. In particular, all 6 against Mercer came in the same inning
- Inexperienced pitching: Aside from the errors, UB pitchers allowed 26 baserunners in 13 innings
- Inconsistent offense: Right now, Alexiss Curtiss is a machine, and everyone else is game-to-game. The catcher was 4-6 from the plate; the rest of the team, 7-46
