    SB Cal vs SM

    Cal vs St. Mary's game started at 3pm. Looks like they are going to build up Zoe's arm strength. Cal up 6-0 top of the 4th and still batting.

    11-0 win. Can't complain there. but WHYYYY oh why on earth would you pitch Conley against SMC? Her arm should be fresh to pitch 3 out of 4 games this weekend against top competition. KSF has pitched well in limited action...

    Where is Fillmore? Have to imagine Karlee Sparacino was in attendance, her older sister starts at 3B for SMC.

    Ninemire is fielding a batting order that has 7 of 9 lefty slap hitters (including the top six hitters). This makes the Bears susceptible to left-handed pitching. The team has zero HRs after 9 games and has benched 2 of its 3 top power candidates, Taurie Pogue & Bradie Fillmore. Jaz Jackson has now been moved to third base from CF/SS with Pogue being benched. Alleah Laxamana is alternating with Annie Aldrete as the team's catcher with the other in the DH slot. I would link the team's hitting stats but the website is stuck at six games rather than up-to-date at nine! I believe that Cal is the only Pac 9 lineup hitting below .300 with a .280 batting average. This is prior to yesterday's 11-0 mercy rule win over the Gaels. Saint Marys commited five errors to help the Bear attack along...Vanessa Alvarez was likely the player of the game. GO BEARS!

    The same reason she pitched Henderson all year till she broke. That's just what coach does. Congrats to Vanessa. I'm happy to see her back in the lineup

    These stats are better from the pac 12 site, http://pac-12.com/content/softball-statistics

    Having seen them live last weekend, I'd like to give you relief. I just can't. Hard to see this as a long term plan. Perhaps there are elements unknown to the public. Stories are canned, stats are left undone. No IR. Toughest team I can think of to find out "what's up"

    Speculations are futile, and have proven to be far off the mark. Going down again tomorrow.

    Makes zero sense. Probably why I know of local coaches who openly question her sanity. Ayayayayyyyyy. I will always support this team but my I have to stop questioning... for my sanity! I really think they can go 4-0 this week. Fingers crossed.

    Also, how awesome is it that Alvarez is leading the team offensively? Happy she is back and healthy!

    She pitched Henderson in both games of a double header in non league games. She got injured shortly after and the season was lost. Glad to see that she learned her lesson 😔

    Cal up 1-0 after 1.5. Conley is in the circle (again).

    Yes, 2-0. Early bats is unusual and nice to see. I see KSF and Filmore warming up so maybe you'll get your wish.

    Bears run-rule Cowboys (girls?) 9-1 in 5 innings. I would think that this was Cal's best game of the early season...Good pitching, good defense, good baserunning and clutch hitting all executed in one game! I also liked the batting order better for this game with JJ in CF, Pettis back at 3B & Pogue inserted at 1B. Everyone hit the ball (no strikeouts) and all nine hitters go on base. Great kick-off for this weekend!
