Mistakes cost Bulls in 2-0 loss to Florida in NCAA Regional
Florida senior pitcher Sara Nevins was nearly unhittable in the NCAA Regional against Florida Sunday afternoon, but two critical mistakes ultimately led to the Bulls' 2-0 loss.
Nevins gave up just one hit, but walked in a run, then allowed another to score when she hit batter Taylore Fuller in th fourth inning, leading to Florida’s 2-0 victory.
The Bulls scored just four runs in four games in regional play, which coach Ken Eriksen said just wasn't quite good enough.
“It’s about playing great defense, great pitching and timely hitting and we did not have the timely hitting," Eriksen said. "Untimely hitting today, we hit the balls at them, but good teams make those plays. So you have to play fantastic ball in the postseason. We played very good ball, but we didn’t play fantastic ball. And the University of Florida played fantastic ball so far in the regional. And I feel they are going to get better as the regionals go on. It’s not hard at my age to figure out that they are a contender for the national championship game.”
