Must not call obstruction in the International game, Munro with a great block and tag to keep the game at 3-3, also had a solo homer. Stewart with another dinger(3 for 3) to tie the game. Really good game.


I wonder why they didn't start Ueno. They win that one and they're in the final. Fujita is a pretty good pitcher but Ueno is a beast.

Looks like Danielle Lawrie hasn't missed a beat in a decade.

Can anyone decipher who is playing in the medal games?

The last tweet I saw from USA was with them down to Japan 3-2 in the fourth last night


You must not have seen Lawrie in the Canada Cup (or whatever it was called). She looked flat out awful. Gave up a ton of runs and was all over the shop. My favorite was against NZ (I think it was) when she threw a change outside by nearly 2 balls just above the waist and was gesturing to the ump "was it outside, high **shrug**" that was pretty funny. Someone I know had a gun on her as well and she was throwing low-mid 60s. 

She is looking better and better and did a great job against PUR and AUS. Looks like she's getting back to old form, but not sure I'd describe it as not missing a beat. She's a very good pitcher and a great competitor.

They’re saving Euno for the final. They went damn close to winning that game without her (and if not for a terrible call at the plate would have) They hit every pitcher thrown at them from America.

That doesnt make much sense to me. You *dont* want to play that extra game. Regardless of how the first game played out, Ueno gives you a much better chance of winning that game than Fujita. If you win you get to rest and throw ueno again in the final. As it was, she had to throw a double header (5 hour break) against canada and the us and it showed in that last game.

At first glance, this seems a bit softer than we have faced in previous years. But then those Cali schools have had some real quality wins the last few years.

So, maybe not as top heavy as in years past (no slight on UK) but very deep.

If Baalman even makes a small step forward, Kentucky would be my first pick -- among those outside the top 10 in the preseason poll -- to make the WCWS

Kurosawa -   Of course everyone knew that Sanford was meant to be Stanford.

Which is exactly the same as when 3LT called me out for making a typo when writing "Gascoigne"... 
when I used a "C" instead of a "G" and had written it as "Cascoigne".

My post above was making fun of 3LT - for calling out people on typos... 
not you.

And my "you" and "you've" was meant generally, not personally - probably should have said "someone" and "they've".

Copying my lineup guess post from the recruiting thread to appease the "thread police" :)

My guess for starting lineup. What's yours?

1)OF Schiele
2)SS Bates
3)OF Huskey
4)C Flores
5)1B Helm
6)3B Kaupe
7)DP Hee
8)OF Milloy
9)2B Atlee

I commented that Gibson will see some time in the of as well as she may he a better hitter although not as good as milloy in the field.

Espinoza - (@kurosawa) suggested Espinosza may take innings from atlee.

Milloy - assertion that milloy had a good average (@trund). She did overall (.315) and she has become better. But in conference, she hit .186 and .151 in top 25 matchups.

A major addition, of course, will be Flores, both offensively and defensively. Schiele, Kaupe, and Milloy will be new additions.

I'm thinking that Tarr is going to do what she's done lately (going back to Lahners): Put her best hitter at lead-off.

Could be. I think Tarr really wanted a slapper in that lead off role but Burdick and Melhart struggled there. That's definitely Schiele's thing but yeah if she struggles then Tarr also has had slappers in the 7-9 slots and bates could move up into the lead off spot.

Hopefully you’re not inferring Schiele is a slapper???

I have no idea whether Schiele can slap or not. She's a lefty and has some speed (played some CF in HS), but missed 2018 due to ACL surgery. I think she'll be on the field, but where she fits in Tarr's lineup, I don't know.

Schiele is a lefty slapper with great speed (I've seen her play a couple of times and no doubt the flosoftball people have as well and that is their quote). I'm assuming she's the real deal and can hit leadoff which I think is what Tarr would like. If not, then she'll end up at the bottom of the order, possibly 9 as that's where a lot of the fast lefties who weren't quite good enough in the leadoff spot ended up previously.

Livy Schiele has never slapped a day in her life. She is left handed and has decent speed after her ACL surgery but a slapper she is not. You must be a real Washington fan if you don’t know their players!!!!

Because there has been so much time with her on the field.

This December, the Washington Huskies will head overseas for the first time, traveling to Australia for a ten-day foreign tour beginning December 14. The Huskies will visit Sydney, Blacktown, and Cairns on the trip, playing multiple games against local competition and exploring the area.

Quote:
"One of the commitments we make to our players is to take them home to play in front of their families and hometowns," said Heather Tarr. "Through our tremendous donor support, we have been afforded the opportunity to take Gabbie [Plain] home. As a program, this is our first foreign trip and we are extremely excited to take our student-athletes down under to a place where we can continue to provide growth opportunities as young women and as a team."
