LETS GOOOO!!!

Is coronavirus over yet?

HOKIES!!!

TIL that Miami doesn't sponsor softball.
(TIAL that Syracuse doesn't sponsor baseball.)

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

Why doesn't Miami sponsor softball? What are they saving those women's sports scholarships for - beach volleyball?

At least the volleyball uniforms are cheap based on square inches of fabric required.

Don't know, but I did read that their AD is considering adding it.

Looks like we're playing #9 Syracuse in about 30-some minutes. GO HOKIES!

Interesting. Was reading up on the coach's bio:

2021 was not just a historic year for the Hokies, but for D'Amour as well as he became the fastest head coach in program history to reach 100 wins, doing so in just 127 games.

That's pretty damned impressive, 100 wins in 127 games, whatever the sport.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

Keely is not looking right. Too much junk and rise is coming right up into the crank zone. 0-1 bottom of th efirst.

I believe that's one reason why you don't see left-handed catchers (or almost anywhere else on the infield).

Are games normally this screamy? I get loud cheering and all that, but this is just straight up screaming. Like the one annoying fan during foul shots, but constant.

stick it in, stick it in, stick it in!

I really want to have this game on in my office as I do work, but that incessant chanting/screeching by Cuse's bench makes it impossible to leave the sound on.

I have it on the extra monitor without sound, but keep missing the action. Tie 1-1 in the bottom of the 4th.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

Bomb for Peck! 2-1 Hokies

Keely feels like she's getting back into groove, like seeing strike outs.

But good lord the Syracuse dugout is intolerable.

Keely definitely got back to form those last two innings.

Moving on. Lets Go Hokies!!

Final on a strike-out, 2-1 Hokies. On to the Semi's

That was a nail biter! Glad the good girls came out on top. Kelsey Brown in LF had another great outstretched catch to save runs, just like in the game against Tennessee.

That catch was probably the entire game right there.

Just some props for the announcer too. After that catch he realized that he had made the call with the wrong player's name (remembering after the fact that Kelsey had subbed in to base run and stayed in defensively in LF).

The way he acknowledged it and corrected it was actually very good broadcasting, which I was not expecting to hear from the midday ACCN softball team. I've heard plenty of high level TV guys say the wrong players name and just never acknowledge it.

The announcing crews have been top shelf!

Win and advance. Good win even if it is ugly

Thanks for bringing the game to my attention.

This is going to be great for the ACC.

So glad we didn't need #rallymanboobs flasher for this game.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

LOLWUT?

This is going to be great for the ACC.

There was a flasher on tv at the baseball game against liberty. We were down 1-0, bottom of the 9th. Boobs were seen. We put in two runs for the walk off. Science.

That's hilarious.

If it worked don't knock it?

Dont knock the knockers man

Clemson beat Notre Dame yesterday, so we play Clemson today at 1pm.
The other game is FSU vs Duke at 3:30pm.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

I know this isn't softball related but baseball game vs. Louisville has been moved up to 3 PM start.

I would prefer these to be at night. Let's Go!

Hokies!

Just a FYI, they are significantly expanding the seating capacity at the softball field with temporary bleachers in expectation of hosting at least the Regionals.

Would not be shocked if we see something similar for baseball as well

This is my school
This is home

For everyone always complaining about the coverage, or lack thereof of the ACC/Tech on ESPN/ACCN, there's an option to watch today's softball game in Spanish, so I think we can consider the problem solved.

Ich will Deutsch oder nichts

Lemley has come out throwing smoke!

Bats are starting slow for the Hokies.

Go Hokies!

Not getting a good feeling about this one, folks.

Let’s go……

Feeling like a let down game for sure

Me either. Maybe it's just our shitty record in tournaments playoffs and bowl games.

Peck throwing error Again. 0-2

Too many quick innings we need to make the pitcher work more than this they have to be feeling it now.

What inning, for those of us at work?

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

5th just ended

It's tough to beat a team 4 times in a season. Through 5, 3-0 bad guys.

SCHokie

Need the rally moobs ASAP

Yeesh, 47 pitches through 5 innings is...efficient.

Yikes, that home run was rough.

Monster shot 1–4 bottom of 7.

Tough loss, but plenty of opportunity left for this season.

That's a wrap. Clemson pitcher did a great job. Of course she's from VA.

I didn't not expect this to be honest. Get it out of the way. Now they know it's no walk in the park. I expect them to be hungry after that loss. It was domination on Clemson's part.

Let’s go……

It's hard to beat a top 10 team 4 times in one season.

We need to root for Duke, I think FSU would jump us with 1 win and definitely if they win the ACC.

Goal would be the 2 or 3 overall seed to stay on the other side of the bracket as Oklahoma.

Here's the deal... Last year VT got cold at exactly this time and its happening again. I'm not saying the bats won't warm up, but this is what happened last season. Beyond that illegal pitches at key times and crucial errors can be very damaging this time of year.

Is coronavirus over yet?

They have not consistently hit for 3 weeks now. If you give up 3 bombs you usually lose. Our batters showed 0 patience. First pitch and ground ball over and over.
