Redhawks mercy rule Colonels 15-2

After senior starting pitcher Taylor Rathe tossed a scoreless first frame, the Miami bats went to work. A hit by pitch, error and a walk loaded up the bases with no outs. The cleanup hitter, junior shortstop Adriana Barlow, stepped up to the plate. A quick flick of her wrists shot the ball into right field, where the strong winds carried it over the fence for a grand slam and a 4-0 lead.

Miami softball is hoping for a great season

The Miami RedHawks are excited to be playing softball this year after last year’s season was cut short by two months. Still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the season looks a little different this year. Practices have to happen in small groups, and schedules are constantly changing.

Two games left, two wins?

The loss to Akron was quickly overshadowed by Miami’s recent win against Kent State Saturday afternoon. The Golden Flashes, who sit fourth overall in the Mid-American Conference (MAC), are seeded significantly higher than Miami. Regardless, the RedHawks kept their composure. A three-point buzzer-beater by sophomore guard Peyton Scott secured the 61-58 win on Senior Day. Scott’s buzzer-beater was No. 5 on SportsCenter’s Top 10 Plays the next morning.
