Absolutely nuts.

And, let's be clear... Arkansas 'should' have won zero of those games. Bama earned all three wins

With a hearty assist from Team Blue in the Sunday morning game. Storms threw a full-count strike to get the second out in the 7th - pitch she'd been getting all day. Called a ball. Two batters later, after what should have been 3rd out on a fly ball to left, Bama got a clutch hit. It was a bad call. Arkansas deserved to win the game. They didn't, though, and that's softball.

No. They didn't deserve to win, even with that call. With the exception of Don Denkinger in the 1985 WS, or Jim Joyce in the Galarraga perfecto, there just isn't much room for the loser to ever say they 'should' have gotten anything they didn't

How you blow that call with it happening right in front of you I have no idea.

That mask the Georgia pitcher is wearing, looks quite bigger and heavier that the one Kelly Barnhill wears....

That was a great AB.

Side note* but Kentucky would be really good if they learned to take walks. They are last in the SEC by far, and have less than a third as many as Alabama/Auburn.

they just play Kentucky softball, scrappy. That's really all there is to it. What do u guys think of Brittany gray? Another Chelsea wilkinson? A great rise in progress, no doubt!

SFNB- u know i was there, and the only game they should have won was the one where Storms pitched. friday their pitcher threw the ball to the backstop so many times, i think she accounted for at least 2 runs because of free bases.

any team that does that, regardless of how many they LOB, should not win.

also, with your arguement just about nobody should lose games if they have folks on base.

all about scoring runs. not a lot of teams have managed to do that while osorio is in the circle.

The commentators love her, the numbers look good, Ray did hit a would be game tying foul bomb off her before striking out but you can still credit Gray for good pitch location as that pitch would have been tough to hit both well and fair.

I've been saying this gray's whole career, but if she could get an effective off speed, not get behind batters, and add a pitch to her toolbox, she can be really effective, As long as she goes at hitters, she can really show some people something.

I didn't see a thing about this game but I bet the one hit they got didn't factor into the run that scored and that there was at least one walk and one WP.  Am I right?


This makes me laugh because it does describe Hoover's pitching!  On a side note, the MS State assistant coach purchased some bigger pants in the offseason.  I noticed that his smmediums did not come out this weekend!

I looked it up and the one run that scored was a walk followed by 2 WPs and a sac fly.  Totally called it!

Georgia takes down Kentucky 3-1 in Game 3 and takes the series.

Kentucky with some very uncharacteristic defensive play and I think the announcers said Georgia left 14 (or more) runners on base tonight. Still not sure how much we know about either of these teams.

For what it's worth - Gray looked especially impressive this weekend!

It's one series and there is of course still plenty to figure out, but, Gray did a good job all weekend of keeping the hitters off balance. She kept things unpredictable so I was pleasantly surprised.

Prince actually pitched well other than the walks (5 BBs+ 1 HBP is pretty bad though) - the double she gave up should have been an error, so she really only gave up 6 singles and 0 ERs.

Gray is definitely good but I feel she's getting into the overrated territory. She got outpitched in G1 by Prince, and G3 was pretty close but most people (and the commentators) probably couldn't tell us Prince's first name. Prince was also facing a much better offence.

Clearly you haven't followed anything in regards to Gray. She has, for the better part of her UGA career, underperformed. As a freshman was she overrated coming in? Absolutely, but certainly not now. I would even say up to this Kentucky series she has underperformed and it was only now that she's shown some real promise. 

In regards to people not knowing Prince's first name... Again, I'll call bullsh*t. It's not like she came out of nowhere, she's just the ace now whereas for four years it was Nunley. Gray in game one was outpitched only in the sense that Prince had more K's and a solid defense behind her where UGA didn't, but game three was not all that close. Gray made UK look foolish all night whereas Prince (and that defense) shot itself over and over again.

I'm not sure what your argument is so I can't respond.

If I'm uga, I gotta be feeling good if my pitcher can even hang with Meagan prince! But you also gotta give her credit for execution in large part due to many young lefty batters. Uga will have a chance with gray in the circle against most.

Wow... just BRUTAL defense in the bottom of 1 in Knoxville.

Incredible that, probably by some measure, UNC is the second-best team in the ACC

Are they?

They've only played the lower half of the ACC so far, so how do we know?  Common opponent with Louisville shows UNC beating Pitt in about the same manner as Louisville beat Pitt.

OK... not by significant measure. But UNC has three RPI top 25 wins, Louisville one

Well if we take common opponents, Ohio state and Cal, then UNC gets the slight edge with a 2-1 record vs 1-1 record vs Louisville. Did Zoe Conley beat both UL and UNC?

Ole Miss about to get run ruled by Tennessee. They haven't landed a stand out pitcher yet. That's what happens with this early recruiting. All they have are JC transfers. Now we know why Finney got her release so easy from OK.

Ouch. Finney didn't get a lot of chances last season for OU. She had a great arm but struggled with control. Gasso didn't have much patience with that.

Well, she came into her first SEC game and gave up a 3 run HR to the first batter she faced. Then a walk or two and then a couple hits. I don't think she even got an out before the game ended.

LSU walks off on Georgia 4-3. Quinn with the game-winning hit.

The unearened runs and runners LOB for Georgia continue to be a really glaring issue. Doesn't help that Gray served up an absolute FATTY on a 2-1 count to Quinn.

Sigh...

LSU was the team with the issues with runners LOB and unearned runs tonight. UGA's first two runs were on back to back WP and PB and their 3rd run was after an awful attempt to throw out a runner.

Both teams really sloppy. Not an SEC caliber performance.
