    Another chance for a big win against Texas.

    Gophers get 6 base runners in 3 innings but zero runs. Time for some clutch hitting.

    Yup. Ladies need to capitalize. These chances are rare against good teams.

    Why when one team scores the other team comes right back and scores too. I believe this has happened to Fiser more than a couple times so far this year. Gophers score and she then gives up hits/runs right after that. I am surprised how she appears to become unfocused and then allows the emotions to take over. She comes across very frustrated with herself or the team or both.

    Lack of execution at the plate again and ERRORS has really hurt this team today against Texas. I'm afraid it is going to continue to be a very long preseason for this Gopher softball team against top ranked teams.

    Gut check time for this team.

    Box score from the Sunday game flips from the Saturday game. Today was the Horns getting on base a lot but not scoring much. Nice defensive effort today by the Gophs after sloppy/unlucky play yesterday. At no time this weekend did my eyes tell me Texas should be a higher ranked team...even in the weird loss yesterday (16 base runners but only 3 runs).

    2 wins & 5 losses vs. top 10 teams - on the road. 2 wins 1 loss vs. teams ranked 10-25 (I think Notre Dame was ranked when the Gophs played them). The Gophs deserved to be ranked in the top 20 after this weekend in my mind.

    Edit to above: Florida is 2W 4L against top 10 teams with 3 of those at home (or 3W 4L if you count AZ). Where should they be ranked?

    What a great week-end for the ladies. 5 out of 6 wins with 2 wins over a top ten team. Keep it up and then on to the big 10.

    Excellent weekend for the ladies. Except for a late-inning hiccup against Texas in game two vs. the Longhorns, they were pretty flawless.

    Hope they can keep up the momentum from now until conference play.

    Yeah. A solid weekend of work. Nice to see more of the pitching staff with larger roles.

    I agree. Trachsel said after today's game that they've been using their whole roster and it paid off. Using four pitchers is bound to create more strength if they keep up the efficiency. Personally I think Lowary has lots of talent; hope she keeps getting stronger.

    Really looking forward to the first RPI rankings. They should be out next week. With MN's strength of schedule and quality wins, I fully expect to see the Gophers inside the top 16 as long as they take care of business next weekend. We'll see.

    So cool that they are picking up wins without overworking Fiser!! And DenHartog is Exhibit A why some of us aren't terribly concerned about Flosoftball player rankings. What a stud!!!!

    The shoulder she injured in the winter of 2017 playing basketball is finally fully healed?

    Checking Gopher Softball online, it looks like only 2 games this weekend will be on TV or streamed. Does anybody know more about that?

    Random thoughts:

    1. After a dud in her first start v. FSU, Syd Smith has made 6 or 7 great starts in a row, including a great effort in a loss to AZ (2-0) and a win against Texas. Incredibly promising.

    2. DenHartog has been a godsend. If only we still had... okay. I won't go there.

    3. With the #1 strength of schedule in the country, 8 wins against top 50 opponents, the possibility of picking up more quality wins this weekend with 2 games against 19-10 S. Florida (wins over AZ and WI) and 1 against 17-5 Wichita State (coming off a 3 game sweep of Nebraska), the Gophers could be in great shape when the first RPI ranking are released on Monday. And I mean GREAT shape.

    4. Lowary might be on some type of pitch count, but she sure looks electric to me.

    5. Mentioned this before, but I am really happy to see that Fiser isn't being overworked. We need her as fresh as possible for regionals.

    6. This team is talented enough to reach the WCWS, and I will fight you if you disagree. (kidding about the latter, but not the former)

    Frequently when a school hosts an event like this, they only stream the games the host team is playing in.

    But IIRC it has happened where they have announced this, but they have turned the camera on for the other games and left it on with no play by play audio with it. Maybe even not even moving the camera just having it sit behind home plate. Maybe something like that will happen this weekend.
