Softball over Charlotte 12-0 .
 
(Time for a new softball thread , lol ) Julie Sarratt and Nikki Blue combine for the shutout , with Blue getting the win in relief . Sarah Mooney broke up a 0-0 game with a solo home run in the top of the 6th . Then the Gamecocks scored 11 in the top of the 7th . Ansley Ard led off the 7th with a bunt single and then hit a grand slam home run later in the same inning . Kaylea Snaer had three more hits today . USC goes to 7-2 , with a home tournament coming up this weekend .

Weird to go for only one run in 6 innings and then score 11

Great win! Hopefully we have a very successful tournament - wasn't this the one last season we could'nt host due to the stadium not being ready yet?

The Gamecocks beat Boston U. 2-0 today (the game vs Gardner-Webb was rescheduled for Saturday) . Once again Coach Smith used two pitchers for the combined shutout . Today it was Julie Sarratt going the first 5 and getting the win and Nikki Blue getting a two inning save . Sarratt had a career high 10 strikeouts . USC faces Michigan State Saturday at 3pm and G-W at 5:30 .

Sarratt was wheelin' & dealin' the first five, and the D helped Blue record her first save.
Good game, Ladies.
Get the bats back on track tomorrow. Remem - Eyes on the prize & trust your back shoulder to show you where it went. It'll do it every time 'cause that's the way He designed us. Look up too quickly, & you'll hear the result hit the catcher's mitt.

We are up 4-0 on Michigan State right now in the top of the 4th. Nickie Blue has pitched pretty well thus far.

USC up 4-0 on GW in the top of the sixth. Blue on in relief of Julie Sarratt who pitched a near-perfect 5 innings.

Ladycocks win a pair today defeating MSU 9-0 and GW 7-0.
Timely hitting, good D and fine pitching have them sitting pretty at 10-2 early in the season.
Got a couple of vets struggling at the plate a bit, but they'll get untracked. Hawkins is starting to come around, and Cody...Well, what can I say? She can't get a hit, so she draws a walk, she takes one for the team, gets on base, scores anyway. The girl's got a pair. LOL. Tomorrow.

Pitching has been surprisingly good this weekend . Hopefully it continues today vs Wilmington . Competition gets tougher next weekend in Tempe .

Nice work (again!)!

USC over UNC-Wilmington 2-1 . Left 10 on base today , and lucky that didn't come back to bite us . UNC-W got the potential tying run to third in the 7th but a slow roller to short ended the game . Western Carolina comes in for a doubleheader Tuesday .

Tks for the update, scfp.
Guess it's a good thing I missed the game; ten LOB's-would have had a heart attack.
Tks to Jordan B for saving our bacon in her first start.

Think I agree with those who say hitting a round ball moving hither & yon with a round stick squarely is the most difficult feat in all of sports, but not for the reason you might think.

The mental aspect of dealing with a failure rate exceeding 70% can be excruciatingly painful to hitters, and their minds begin to deceive them into believing they're keeping their head down on the ball THRU CONTACT when they're not. After all, the concept of guaging your target is so simple, any idiot should know to do it.

As a result hitters spend their entire careers looking for the mystical 'zone' that can only be found when they consistently focus intensely on keep[ng their eyes on their target THRU CONTACT and let their back shoulder pull their chin up & around.

Ladies, if you put the Media Arts guys to work, their recorders will tell you where you're looking when the ball is about a foot in front of home plate. And start with CH; the girl hit .300 last year, and there's no reason she can't do it again once she realizes she's been pulling her head up a split second too soon.

If you're whiffing, hitting weak grounders to the infield and/or hitting popups, you're pulling your head up too soon. See major leaguers do it all the time every summer.

Olivia Lawrence hit a grand slam in the 6th to give USC the 6-3 win in game 1 against WCU

First game: Staff started Lakyn on the mound for just her third appearance of the season. Touched for 3 in two and a third. Blue with the W in relief.

Second game: 4-0 USC thru four. Sarratt tossing a jewel.

Sarratt works her way out of a bases-loaded jam in the sixth. 4-0 headed to the bottom of the sixth.

5-0 Ladycocks win 2 with excellent D & timely hitting.

Next up is undefeated Arizona State in Tempe on the 27th. Gonna see how the big girls put their pants on. No diff than the Lady G's I'll bet.
