Can’t believe you missed the fact a former LU coach will be there. You’re slipping in your old age

In a scheduled 10 inning game, LU lost to UVA tonight 8-4. A first inning grand slam HR was the big blow for Virginia. Liberty pitching held UVA scoreless in 8 of the 10 innings.
Deter, Bachman and Estroff pitched scoreless ball over the final 5 innings.
The LU defense had several sloppy plays, to go with 6 or 7 base on balls.

Former O's catcher and broadcaster Rick Dempsey always used to say, "No good ever happens after a walk." Were the walks legit, or were the UVa pitchers getting some "home cooking" calls from the umpires in Cville?

The plate umpire called a decent game. He missed a couple pitches on Liberty hitters, that were not in strike zone.

Last time they played Keeney got hit pretty hard. How'd she do this time since she's our "Ace", just curious.

UVA beat LU 9-2 in a scheduled 10 inning game. UVA scored 8 runs in 3rd inning, on 6 hits, 2 walks , along with an error.
After 3rd inning, LU pitchers shutout Hoos in final 7 innings. Deter pitched 3 hitless innings, Jones 1 inning, and Keeney the final 3 innings, allowing only 1 hit.
Reagan Barrett had HR and single to lead LU batters.
The plate umpire was the worst I have seen in my lifetime on balls and strikes. There were a total of 16 base on balls in the game. Umpire had no comprehension as to strike zone.

Not sure I’d be questioning anyones eyesight if I were in that position. Of course blaming someone else seems to be your go to MO
