Indiana State was picked 9th out of 10 in the Missouri Valley Conference..
preseason poll. UNLV was picked 6th of 9 in the Mountain West preseason poll.
It's only 2 games, but losing Aiken for the season is a big blow to our pitching staff. I hope Angela Tincher-O'Brien can work some magic. Aysha Richardson had a few batters hit weak infield pop ups. Taylor Barnes looked nervous in her first time on the mound but that is to be expected for a true freshman. I think she threw 6 straight balls. IMHO, Chelsea Whitcomb is best used as a 3B or CF. Looks like Carrie Eberle had the best performance of the day despite her struggles in the 7th inning. Just from 2 games, #1 Eberle, #2 Richardson, #3 Barnes. Can't wait to add pitchers Jordan Dail and Keely Rochard to our staff in 2018.
