Wins are great. Wins that end the weekend are even better. Once again, UB Softball got a victory by simply outslugging their opponents, and after two late-inning collapses Saturday were the beneficiaries of a seventh-inning rally themselves.
The usual rundown:
- Big inning: UB had taken a 7-6 lead in the top of the 6th, just needing to hold on, but surrendered five straight hits bookended by walks in giving up five runs themselves.
- Defense: Can I be excited over only 2 errors? Especially given that Evansville committed four themselves. Two of the Aces' runs were unearned, still.
- Pitching: Coach Peel used bobth Bobbi Langlois and Charlotte Miller, who together surrendered 13 runs (11 earned) on 17 hits and five walks.
- Offense: Would that we could get this offense every game! UB scored 13 runs despite an 0-5 performance from Alexis Curtiss. When UB gets more consistent with the bat and shores up the defense, they should take a big step forward.
