Bama wins two in Arizona today

1st Game:  Fouts struck out 14, Freshman Megan Bloodworth had a HR, her third in last 2 games.  Bama  beats Oregon State 5-1.

2nd Game:  Bama runs rules #7 ranked Arizona 11-0 in 5 innings. Kilfoyle went the distance in the circle, started the scoring in the 3rd inning with a massive HR.
Newcomer 3rd baseman Prange had 2 HRs and a triple, Doerr had a HR, as did Freshman Dallis Goodnight.

Bama has hit 10 HRs in the 1st 3 games.  Last year we had a total of 41 HRs for the season.  Be looking for more fire power from the offense this year.

Thanks again Leewillie. This firepower has me excited. Murph has always had good teams, but there has never been a lot of power on his teams. Hemphill provided the majority of the HRs over the past few years.

The pitching will be strong again this year. That's a good combination.

After the game on Sunday against New Mexico the Bama ladies are 4-0.  The margin for scoring is currently 35-4 in our favor.  35 points.  I just hope they don't fizzle out when they start playing the SEC games... That begins March 11 @ LSU for a series. They will be playing Mississippi State in T-town during the A-Day weekend.

We missed Lexi yesterday. Torrance started against Texas and Foust had to relieve her in the 4th after pitching a complete 7 inning game on Friday. Foust had to relieve Salter in the second game against Miami (Ohio). She pitched 3.2 innings in both games. Bama got both wins 3-1 over UT and 4-2 over Miami. We are now 19-0.

Lexi was not in uniform and wearing a walking boot during the games yesterday. They do not know how long she will be out.

It was a strange day for the ladies at LSU. When Foust came out wild and walking everyone it was like the team got out of sync and stayed there the rest of the day.

We need a win today to avoid the sweep.

I didn't get to see the game last night, but our softball team seems to have hit a ceiling under Murph.  I know he's well loved and made our program into a national contender, but the rest of the SEC and lots of teams east of the mighty Mississipp (previously only Michigan was a national contender in the east) seem to have caught up or passed.  We need some kind of influx of new blood/innovation.   It's something Saban has managed to do with the football program that longtime coaches generally struggle with.

We won the Series 2-1 on the road against #6 Florida. The two wins over the weekend propelled us to #2 in the polls. We are in second place in the SEC one game behind Arkansas. The toughest part of our regular season is behind us with only Miss St, A&M, and Missouri SEC series remaining. We are in good shape to secure a Top 8 Regional Host Seed which would keep us at home through the Super Regionals.

Team 26 is solid top to bottom and poised to make a CWWS run.

Good job, ladies!

A shout out to my niece's high school team (that my BiL coaches) - they played a tournament yesterday.  They're a small 3A school and beat two 7A schools (Florence and James Clemens of Madison) before losing to 6A Muscle Shoals.   A good showing!

Well, the competition IS better.  My concern is that this team seems to play to the level of their competition.  They've done well against highly regarded teams, not so much with lesser squads.  This has hurt in the conference and is dangerous in the tournament and the series.  ROLL TIDE!!!

I haven't followed it enough to know, but my question would be, "Is it because Murph is playing a different line up against weak squads to get players experience, or are they just not getting motivated?"

I know most every team saves their best pitchers for the weekend conference schedule, so sometimes the middle of the week matchups are duds.

Prange's 3 run homer was the difference in the game. The left fielder got a glove on it, causing it to hit the top of the wall and fall back onto the field. After review, the ump ruled it a HR. The Mizzou players and the announcers were incredulous because of the ruling. They need to learn the rules. A ball hitting the top of the wall is a home run. Anyway, good game.

BTW, I saw Mr. and Mrs. Jamos sitting behind home plate. They were looking good. I think Jamos got a new hat.  :lol2:

Murph seems to have maxed out.  He set a level of excellence for SEC softball and the University invested.  We've done well.   But he's been lapped, and shows no answer for it.   He's just not shown an ability to field a powerful offense, and Fouts (at the present) or his ace can only take him so far at this point.   Everyone's defense is so good now, slap and run isn't what's going to win it all.

He also has a habit of "inbredding" where he hires his players as assistants.  That's not the way to progress a program.  It tends to multiply the weakness.

It will be interesting to see if we get a top 8 seed. I feel certain we get to host a Regional but we may have to go on the road for the Supers, assuming we can score enough runs to win our Regional.

Something happened mid-season.  Have no idea what.  We played some good teams before the conference started and our pitching, batting and fielding were all, for the most part, outstanding.  Then we went to Baton Rouge and everything went to Hades.  Never regained our hitting and silly errors in the field.  Pitching, for the most part, stayed ok.  Someone who knows more than I may have a better explanation.  I can only assume something mental/emotional?


Title: Re: Alabama Softball Kicks off 2022 Season
Post by: pmull on May 15, 2022, 08:46:36 AM
We are being projected as a Top 8 seed. Our 41-11 record, RPI, and strength of schedule are all very good. USA Today Sports Network projects us as #5. Other SEC teams expected to host #4 Arkansas, #7 UT, #12 Florida, and #16 Mizzou.

Currently 9 SEC teams are ranked.

All our goals are still possible. We need the bats to wake up. Freshmen CF Goodnight and 2B Bloodworth started the season on fire, both are now benched. Junior Jenna Johnson looked like our best hitter early in the season, her bat has gone cold. I am not sure what has happened to Tow. We have been looking for a RF player who could get on base all year. We have been relying on Prange, Shipment Dowling, and Doerr. That is not enough bats. 

Montana Foust must feel the weight of the team on her shoulders. She needs to be near perfect each game lately. Kilfoyl being hurt has been a big blow. We need her back for the Regional/Supers. Our other pitchers are not SEC/Tournament ready.

I am not giving up on this team. I am also not down on Coach Murphy. I think it is as simple as this is not one of his better teams. Thank goodness for the Transfer Portal. Where would we be without Prange and Shipman. I do not know anything about Softball recruiting but I look for Murphy to search the portal again this offseason.

Re:Fouts leaving.  The only references I've seen to anyone's career being over are about Kaylee Tow.  Earlier I saw an interview with Fouts and Murph where she was asked if she'd come back and she responded with "If he'll have me."  So maybe she still has her covid season if she wants it?  Sure seems like she's been around for a LOOONNNNGGG time!  I'd love to see her with one more season and a healthy Lexi Kilfoyle.

Oklahoma is likely to buzzsaw anyone and everyone.

Stanford is actually getting to host their Super Regional, because Oregon St also beat Tennessee (which was the seeded regional host).  So I wouldn't be surprised to see them advance to the CWWS.
