Thread: UL Splits Series With UTA

  1. UL Softball UL Splits Series With UTA

    ARLINGTON, TEXAS _The UL_Ragin' Cajuns once again had to settle for a Sun Belt Conference split Saturday with a 6-1 win over UTA in the nightcap after watching an 3-0 lead in game one end in a 4-3 loss in the team's final league road series of the season.

    The positive in this is that Texas State got double dipped by Troy, so the Cajuns are now two games in back of the Bobcats in the loss column with 4 games left. As unlikely as it seems, there's still a chance to be conference regular season champions.

    So instead of being 1 game back, we are two games back and that is a good thing.. You should write for a politico. I had to think about it. Well done.

    Cajuns can't close out again. Took a 2-1 lead into the 7th and allow a run in Game 3. Extra innings again. It seems like most of the extra inning games that they are in this year are a result of not closing. We lost the last 3 of these.

    Stevie seems confused as to what happened. I wonder if Watts paused in the basepath while the pitcher had the ball in the circle. In that case, the base runner (Watts) is out.

    We ain't got that 10-15 run team or run rule team. Have to scratch for wins. Maybe Glassco will find some big hitters out there than want to come and play some UL softball.....and UTA left 13 on base to 8 for UL

    It's no secret that we took one hell of a lick when we lost our three best returning starters and had to find a coach very late in the game. I never thought we would be this good considering the situation. I hope we go a long way this post season, but next year and going forward could be special.

    They can beat most anyone. They can also lose to very mediocre teams. They've proven both of those facts this season.

    As it always is in the post season, it's all about the draw. I'd actually like to see them placed in like the 13+ seed regional and it looks like they have a good shot at that with teams like LSUA&M, Bama, TAMU, Auburn and Baylor all around that RPI. They'd have a shot to get out of it and just fight like hell in the super. We pitch enough to stay in games, it's just can we consistently hit?

    Frenchie,
    we have two bombers on the bench that will be good to go next year:

    Raina Wilson, a transfer from Texas Tech, hit twelve long-balls to lead TTU as a freshman and second in Big 12 conference - TTU would not give her a release to play with us this year (probably still sore for letting Lexie Elkins go to us); and

    Brittany Holland, our injured/medical redshirt sophomore, was a first-team JC All-American last year and hit 15 home runs and 81 RBI's.

    Gonna be fun next year, and I bet Coach's phone will be ringing off the hook after the season.

    But for the moment, I am all in for the gutty team we have now. As stated, we can beat anybody at times - maybe our gris gris will show up!!!
