I didn't agree with the call at all. I disagreed, and I'd had enough of it, and one thing led to another. I wasn't trying to pump my kids up. I just disagreed with it.
Basically we started a tradition where we get as close to a hometown as we can. It was nice for Holly. ... I'm real proud of her, real happy.
Holly was big. She was in the pen, and I told her to get herself right physically, get herself right mentally, and she did. She did that very well.
Holly pitched well again. It's a shame we couldn't get the victory for her tonight. We'll have to go out and get a win in Pensacola tomorrow night. I'm really impressed with the way Holly has thrown this early in the season.
Holly pitched a great game. She got into a few jams, but worked her way out of it and got the win. Our offense really came through early, which gave her some breathing room.
Holly has been in control all year. Of course, we have to continue that into the Southeastern Conference. She's been a very poised pitcher. Both of my pitchers, Beth and Holly, have been very poised this year and I am proud of them.
Holly got much stronger as the game went on. Like Beth, she picked her corners, but also overpowered her batters at times.
Holly continues to have quality starts and that home run is a huge confidence boost. She hadn't hit one for awhile, even though she's been hitting the ball hard.
I thought we pitched very, very well, and gave our bats an opportunity to heat up. We took care of business. I thought overall it was a good day.
Kristina has really been a catalyst for us this season. She's seeing the ball well, getting on base and making things happen.
Our offense, for the second day in a row, really saw the bell well. Our middle of the order is really producing early on in the season.
That was a great first day of SEC play. The key now will be to keep it up Sunday and close out the series with a sweep of Kentucky. That will be a challenge against a hungry Wildcat club.
This was a great way to start out the tournament. Our bats were hot and Holly used that to her advantage. Now we look forward to our game against Florida Atlantic, which is a very dangerous team. We will need to be focused.
You have to win games like these. It's important to start the season on the right foot. There will be high scoring games like these in the future and we proved we have the ability to come back.
We got that early lead, and that really helped Beth. She did a great job of hitting the corners, and we played great defense behind her.
We should have slammed the door in their face, and instead we let them back in.
Brittany threw very well today. She hit her corners, and had some very good speed to her pitches. She's maturing very well lately.
Beth was a little off the plate, but that ultimately helped her keep the Florida batters off balance. She got behind a few batters, but battled, and the offense came through in the end.
Beth threw well again tonight. It's continuing a trend for Beth this season. She's hitting her spots and limiting her walks, which is keeping opposing batters from focusing on a certain pitch. She's handling herself very well.
Beth threw a controlled game today, which allowed for those 10 strikeouts. She found the corner and stuck with it and kept those batters off balance. She walked just two, which was real key in a tight game like that.
Beth moved the ball around and kept hitters off their toes. She's pitched very well this season and kept up that pace in Florida. It was a great first day for us, and an exceptional day for Beth and Holly (Currie). We'll get some rest tonight and continue on tomorrow.
Beth has impressed early on this season. Against Kentucky, she got ahead in the count and hit her corners. She really looked good in her first SEC start of the season.
Beth had a great game from the circle. She was commanding, and the only real solid hit against her was the single in the eighth.
Beth and Holly threw very well tonight. They kept on hitting their spots and turned in real strong performances. I'm very proud of the way they threw the ball today.
Beth and Holly really controlled each game from the circle. Both kept their batters off balance, and aside from a few hits apiece, did not allow a Kentucky batter to really figure them out.
There's really no words to describe what Holly did today. She had perfect control, save for that first at bat, and made Mercer swing the bat. It's a really great feat to get 15 outs by strikeout.
That was a clutch hit today by Tara. She's been a big part of the offense the last week and continued to see the ball well.
This is a big win tonight. Troy fought back late in the game, but our offense proved to be enough.
Tat saw the ball well tonight. She provided the offense at the right time and played well defensively. She's continuing to mature.
It's hard to beat (even) a crummy team with the scoreboard like it was.
