GAME NOTES

Florida 2, LSU 1 (8),  WP Hannah Rogers. LP Rachele Fico.  Fico, who had 11 Ks, was one strike from upsetting the Gators 1-0  in regulation but, with 2 out,  Ensley Gammel, who hits over .300 in DH/PH situations,  jacked a 2-2 pitch over the right field fence, tying the game.  In the 8th, Fico struck out Medino, but hit Damica, who scored on Moultrie’s rbi double.  Applegate scored for the Tigers. Fico was tagged for 5 hits, Rogers 4, and the early innings between these fine pitchers were as taut as the strings on a banjo. (BTW, Comcast announced it would televise this game between Top 25 teams, but the local station is owned by Danny Snider, so  all of us who are already tired of the endless RGIII promotion, did not get to see the game, but “watched” it on Gametracker.)

Notre Dame 7, Michigan State 1.  Dani Miller and Lauren Stuhr each launched two-run home runs as part of a six-run third inning and Brittany O’Donnell limited Michigan State to five hits as Notre Dame defeated the Spartans, 7-1, Tuesday at Melissa Cook Stadium. Miller’s home run was her 10th of the season, making her the first player in program history to hit double-digit dingers in each of her four campaigns in an Irish uniform. The non-conference softball win bumped Notre Dame’s overall record to 27-13 heading into a BIG EAST Conference doubleheader with Seton Hall set to begin at noon (ET) Wednesday. O’Donnell (9-5) earned the victory with her fifth complete game of the season, striking out six and allowing one earned run to give Notre Dame its sixth straight win. Michigan State (11-34) starter Carly Nielsen could not escape the third inning and gave up five earned runs on five hits to shoulder the loss, moving her record in the circle to 3-15.

LSU 1, Florida 0.  WP Brittany Mack (4H,8K).  LP Lauren Haeger (6H, 9K).  Tiger fans could be excused for experiencing a Yogi Berra moment (ask your parents).  LSU once again clung tightly to a 1-0 lead into the bottom of the 7th; once again, the Gators were down to their last out, but, after the second out, Damico singled, Moultrie reached on a throwing error at 3rd, so now  there were 2 runners on board; a solid single or certainly a double could win the game.  Not again; Mack struck out Sami Fagan to win the game and even the series. LSU scored top 2nd; one out, Applegate tripled; two out, Houston singled up the middle, rbi.  Supak also singled; both were stranded. Florida is 42-6/19-3,  LSU IS 33-16/14-8.

Charlotte 10, North Carolina 6.  Game Two reversed the first game, which ended with the Tar Heels winning 10-6.  WP Katie Watkins.  LP Lori Spingola.  Charlotte led 7-2 after 4, thanks to a 5-run 3rd triggered by Lang’s grand slam, which followed a bases-loaded hbp.  UNC rallied top 6th with 4 runs: Dickey slugged a 2-run homer; Foulks ripped a solo; after Betancourt relieved Watkins, Orr homered.  But Charlotte got insurance with 2 unearned runs in the bottom.  UNC 36-11.  Charlotte 25-19.

 Oregon State swept Portland State 3-2, 2-0.  In the latter game, Tina Andreana tossed a 2-hitter.  LP Raya Johnson.Kutz scored in the 2nd on Garacia’s single.  Santana scored on Guzy’s single in the 3rd. Oregon State is 30-15.  Portland State is 21-22.

Mississippi State 9, Memphis 1.  MSU’s Jessica Cooley belted home runs in consecutive innings.  The Bulldogs are 29-19, Memphis 19-34.
