Ira looks like she is on today. Yesterday, not so much.

Video is working fine now, just fyi. Not sure if you want to watch it or not though, NDSU just tied it up with a 3-run HR in the bottom of the 4th.

Up 4-3 end of 5. Need a couple more cushion runs for Ira.

Looking good so far. I am not crazy about the format of the tournament. No way should the loser of a winner bracket game ever come into a loser bracket game at a disadvantage against a team already in the loser's bracket. But that is what is going to happen to the loser of this game having to play twice in the same day. Most teams at this level have only one top pitcher. Having to go back to back for any pitcher is almost a death sentence.
