    The team looks locked in and ready to go for the Big Ten. Should be a fun conference season!

Parlich had 3 hits and Lindaman 4 RBI's in that one also. Finucane with 7 strikeouts, 2 hits allowed and 2 walks. Fiser with 3 strikeouts, 4 hits allowed and 1 walk.
    Had a chance to watch both games (first time this season other than the N.C. State games at the ACC/Challenge). Really nice combination of youth and experience. The biggest thing to me is the depth. Wow are they deep, probably the deepest team they've had in I don't know how long. Both offensively and in the circle, they can come at you in a number of ways which makes them a really tough matchup. There's power and speed throughout the lineup to go along with five quality pitchers available at any given time. It's going to be a fun conference season for this team.

    That's a good spot to be in. They need to take care of business in the conference regular season and things should take care of themselves. They set themselves up nicely to get to host in the post-season.

    How awesome would it be for them to get to host a Super Regional! Never would've imagined it. Hopefully they can roll through the B1G.

    Nice to see that Gopher softball is finally going to be available on TV consistently...at least with a subscription to BTN Plus and a streaming device. I've gotten tired of only watching the Pac12 and SEC. Now on to watching the Gophies pound Nebraska (12-0 in the 4th as I type this).

    Watched the game today as well. The ladies put quite a beat-down on the Huskers with a 16-0 final, who appear to be having a rebuilding year. Still, it was a another really impressive performance. Parlich with a bomb and Sara G only had to pitch three innings. Fiser also looked pretty good in relief. Nebraska helped a bit with the four errors, but the entire lineup looked pretty darn good. I'm guessing Finucane will pitch tomorrow.

    Shoot, subscribed to BTN Plus today, but having internet issues. Hopefully one can watch a replay.....
    Wow, they put a hurting on the Huskers!

    The ladies managed to overcome themselves in a 5-4 win this afternoon. Didn't play real well during any part of the game, but came through with three runs in the seventh to pull it out. Had a hard time with Nebraska's McClure at the plate and committed four fielding errors (can't remember the last time that happened). But Brandt was stellar in relief of Finucane, and Lindaman and Partain came through in the clutch (really happy to have all three of them for four years! ). Hopefully they'll play a little crisper in game three tomorrow.

    Nice to get the W in a game where they didn't play like they can.

    Agreed. That's the sign of a good team. Expecting a much sharper performance tomorrow.

    Brandt must throw a pretty good drop ball. Always getting ground outs and doesn't walk batters. Out of her 15 outs today, 13 were ground outs and she had one strikeout and no walks. And she hasn't pitched (I think) since that game against Washington in relief of Finucane. Makes it more impressive. For the year only 3 walks in 28 innings. Plus she can play another spot besides being in the circle. Good player.

    Both of my daughters played with Brandt in club ball. A great kid and a great family.

    There's little doubt about her versatility in the field. Could definitely make the argument she was the team's best player today. Came in and held down the fort until the seventh inning. Not overpowering by any means, but allows her team to make plays behind her and is very composed even in tough spots. Was happy to see her get the win today because she certainly deserved it.
