Against Central Connecticut she had a great deal of "control problems."  Don't know if it's due to injury or if it's due to some other issue, but she couldn't get a ball near the strike-zone and her spin wasn't near tight enough.

The only way I could imagine Ablan having major control problems would be if the coaching staff is trying to significantly change her mechanics, which is something no one on their staff should attempt since Rick Pauly left...

Please go back and watch the fourth and fifth inning of the first Central Connecticut game and tell me again that she isn't having control issues. Everything sailed high

Riseballs sailing high is usually a timing issue, which is not uncommon when a pitcher goes from throwing nothing but bullpen sessions into the circle.

Uga finishes Saturday with 2 more wins at the UCF tournament. Ablan was able to get some innings vs Delaware State. She settled down after her first inning to strike out 2 in her second inning of work. A back and forth game vs UCF ended up coming to the final inning. Tied 5-5 Maeve had the eventual game winning homer in the top of the 7th. Uga got the win 6-5.

Sydni had a great day at the plate. She's having an outstanding senior year so far and showing that she should be getting the same national recognition that her younger sister is.

I agree. On the year she is batting .529.

My jaw dropped yesterday when the UCF announcer said she was second on the team with 26 RBI. I didn't realize just how much she'd done already.

UGA brought in 4 freshman middle infielders this season. Bryan, Milz, Harding and Doggett.

Bryan and Milz have been very shaky in the field with both having fielding percentages under 900.
That is terrible!!! Is this just a case of jitters with these girls or are they really this bad defensively?
I realize both girls are hitting well but in SEC competition and postseason play you can't win without a sound defense especially in the infield. The ball will always find a shaky defensive player in the post season. This was largely responsible for Georgia's downfall in the world series last year. Sometimes I really feel sorry for our pitchers.

I sincerely hope for drastic improvement from Bryan and Milz in the field. If not, then give the other 2 girls a chance.
