It's off to the zoo again for Rally Baby and company today (early), so we won't be around until later in the day. But it is, of course, a busy day on the diamond(s) nonetheless.

Catch up on the NCAA Softball Tournament here. It was an interesting day -- No. 5 Florida, No. 6 Texas, No. 7 Tennessee and No. 12 UCLA all lost their openers, meaning they now have to win four in a row to advance to the Super Regionals they were expected to host.
And in case you missed it, here's the recap of last night's 6-0 win. Both pitchers started relatively slow, but Chelsea Thomas found her rhythm, and Mizzou put a couple of runs on the board before ISU's Jordan Birch could find hers. A two-run, Kelsea Roth bomb in the sixth finally gave Mizzou a comfortable lead, and Ehren Earleywine was able to give freshman pitcher Bailey Erwin her first NCAA experience in the top of the seventh. Ashley Fleming was, to say the least, seeing the ball well last night -- she went 2-for-3 with an RBI double in the first, and her one out was a bullet right to the center fielder.
The Stubble Drive continues at 3pm; what do you have planned between now and then?
