Michigan 4, Louisiana-Lafayette 3 (8)
WP Haylie Wagner in relief. LP Jordan Wallace. Michigan won on Lane’s walkoff, 2-run homer bottom 8th. ULL spotted the Wolverines 2 runs, bottom 1st, a lead UM held until the 7th. Leading off, Doyle reached on the first of two close plays at 1st. Sappingfield sacrificed. Doyle reached 3rd on the first of several wild pitches/passed balls. The box says Romero doubled, rbi. Actually, Romero hit a fly ball to right center, which CF Cherry and two other fielders watched drop between them. Romero scored on Blanchard’s single. She went to 3rd on a wild pitch but Wallace nailed the first of 10Ks and Sweet popped. The players on both teams treated viewers to sparkling defensive plays, Romero showing agility at short on two deflected balls which would have been hits. ULL left runners on 2nd and 3rd top 6th. With 2 out in the ULL 7th, UM was a strike away but Meyers slashed a 1-2 pitch for a single. Cherry jacked a 1-0 pitch over the fence in right center, tying the game. UM down in order. Top 8th: Haack homered to left, ULL up 3-2. One out, Corbello singled, pinch ruinner Thomas advanced on a wild pitch; Walsh singled to left. Wagner relieved starter Sara Driesenga, and fanned May. Walsh stole 2nd; but Fernandez fouled out to 3rd. The conventional wisdom is that you can’t give breaks to an experienced, well-coached team, and again the Wolverines made the Ragin Cajuns pay in the 8th. Blanchard was hit by Wallace’s first pitch. Lane’s foul pop-up outside 1st was caught and dropped by Haack. Pinch runner Virgit advanced on a passed ball. Lane slugged a 1-1 pitch over the left field fence. The defensive play of the game was made by Sappingfield in right; two on, two out in 5th, Cherry socked a pitch to right which Sappingfield deflected as it cleared the wall back onto the field, holding both runners while snuffing a three-run homer.
Washington 1, Missouri 0 Washington advances to Women’s College World Series
WP Bryanna Walker LP Chelsea Thomas. Save Kaitlyn Inglesby. Each pitcher was tagged for 2 hits. The first Husky hit was the dagger in the Tigers: Hayward led off with a home run on a 2-0 count — the only run of the game. Missouri forced a pitching change top 6th: Crane and Marston singled; Kaitlyn Inglesby relieved Walker. Three groundouts ended the at-bat. Washington will face the winner of the Oregon/UAB super regional.
Oklahoma 10, Texas A&M 2 (6)
