Great performance on the mound and UW did a good job at the plate as well.  Nice win vs. my Tigers.

Congrats. Alvelo really settled in after the 1st. Very impressed by the Huskies!

Very good job, we hope they can be consistent like that and maybe win a spot in the WCWS.  Auburn is a great team and they will probably be there.

AU scores one off Alvelo in the 1st (wild pitch), but then puts up nine goose eggs against her; UW ties it in the 7th (Van Zee single), then wins it in the 10th (Aguilar single).

UW 2R 14H 0E
AU 1R 3H 1E

UW did leave a LOT of runners on base.

Starters (ab-r-h-rbi):

SS Aguilar 6-0-1-1
3B Van Zee 6-0-2-1
LF Stangel 4-0-3-0
C Flores 4-0-0-0
2B Bates 5-0-3-0
1B DePonte 5-0-1-0
DH Thomas 5-1-1-0
RF Melhart 4-0-2-0
CF Burdick 4-1-1-0

I have to say that, while I guessed the starters right, I only got THREE of their positions right (Aguilar, Stangel, and Flores). Tarr and a lineup card...

In the past, Tarr has had either great pitching, but so-so hitting, or great hitting, but so-so pitching. This year she could have both.

I'm guessing Schreyer will start against BYU.

UW seems to continue with a problem they've had during many recent seasons: the absence of clutch hitting. Two runs out of 14 hits means too many batters were not able to hit safely at crucial moments. And, 4 hits in one inning equaling no runs?
I hope our hitters can find ways to get those timely hits so good performances like Alvelo's yesterday won't be wasted.

From the highlights video on the Auburn article (all Tigers, no Huskies), they made a lot of clutch defensive plays. The Huskies easily could have had several more hits.

That said, three of the bottom five in the batting order are new starters (Bates, Thomas, and Burdick), while our two most clutch hitters (Aguilar and Van Zee), who did come through with clutch (winning and tying) hits, are #1 and #2 in the order. Note that Auburn also had their best hitter, Cooper, leading off, so it is not just a Tarr thing.

Granted. But, our pitcher dominated Auburn much more than their pitcher dominated us. Yet, we had to go 10 innings to eke out a win. I just hope this is early season jitters and that experience will enable them to come up with more timely hits, which we'll certainly need later on.

As you said, getting lots of runners on base, but fewer than might be expected across the plate, is not a new thing. Batting with runners in scoring position is different than not. Personally, I'd prefer a more traditional batting order of: 1. Melhart, 2. Van Zee, 3. Aguilar, 4. Stangel, 5. DePonte, etc., but what do I know?

Granted, Tarr is just rolling the lineup back, with 8. Melhart and 9. Burdick the true "lead-offs".

I thought yesterday was a good win. I would have liked to have seen more runs. But it was a good test of the fight of this team and they made it happen.

I truly love to watch Alvelo pitch. She makes it look so easy. It was good to see her healthy again. Also good to see Coach Tarr back on the field and healthy. Glad to see Lance Glasoe back as well. I'm excited about the season. On to the next [smile].

UW ties it up 1-1 in the top of the 4th, on DePonte's second single. BYU scored their run on an error in the 1st.

UW goes up 2-1 in the top of the 6th on a Stangel HR.

BYU scores three on Schreyer, on two singles and a double, then adds another single against Manti, in the bottom of the 6th. UW fails to score in the top of the 7th.  Final: BYU 4 UW 2.

Who's going for the Huskies against OU? I thought they'd use Alvelo, but I see she's pitching against Nebraska.

Schreyer pitched last night, which is probably why she didn't pitch this morning.

Final: UW 7 Neb 5

W: Alvelo 6ip, 5h, 3r, 2er, 1k

Bates, Burdick, and Melhart with two hits. DePonte with a 2-run HR.

Alvelo is UW's best pitcher, but not their only good pitcher.

Hopefully she tires out, but she's been dominating OU. Really disappointing for #1 OU to go 2-2 and lose to both ranked teams they've played if they lose. 🙄
