Payton McBride has looked great all week at the plate. It’s pleasant to see her have the capacity to go out there and hit in the DP spot and pitch some better than average innings for us. Kelbi Fortenberry began for us in focus and got her chance. Blake-Ann Fritsch got her first at bat and hit the ball well, just got at the notice track. So it’s decent to see those children come in and get some time and have their partners pull for them.”
On playing Missouri this end of the week…
“They cleared us a year ago, that is all I consider. This is a group that we’ve had incredible amusements against. We generally have hard battled recreations with them. They’re extremely all around drilled and on a very basic level sound. They lost their two pro pitchers who exchanged out yet a year ago we lost to Baumgartner who is still on their staff. It’s a group that gets up there and swings the bat. We don’t mess with them at all so we know will need to play truly well to beat them.”
