The Women’s College World Series has been so full of great softball this year. If you haven’t been watching, you’re seriously missing out. So far the series has been a dazzling display of drama. A walk off grand-slam by a Florida senior who was 0-9 for the series to oust Alabama may have been the highlight.
If you didn’t catch it, let’s recap: With two outs in the bottom of the seventh, Alabama held a 5-2 lead over top-seeded Florida. But with one swing of the bat, Ali Gardiner unloaded the bases for a walk-off grand slam, sending the Gators into the WCWS finals.
The Washington v. Georgia semi-final series was no less exciting. Despite two home runs and a WCWS record seven RBI from freshman Niki Williams, the Washington Huskies fell to Georgia, 9-8, in a wild World Series game Sunday at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium.
The win by Georgia, which was facing elimination, forced a deciding game with Washington advancing to the championship series which starts tonight at 8:00 CT (ESPN).
Leading up to the finals, there were lots of memorable moments. Take Georgia’s relief pitcher Taylor Schlopy who homered twice in consecutive at-bats to help the team beat Michigan.
