Not clear to me if they are streaming today's games. There is a video link. I'll be on it at start time to find out.

I was hoping to be sitting at the local pub about now enjoying a victory Jack and Coke. Instead, I will be crying in my beer. Ira ran out of gas late and the Dons started squaring up against her. Not a fan of the one and done in first round of a 6 team tournament bracket.

Sad ending to the Western Softball season.

Western was leading 5-1 going into the 6th inning. But Purdue Fort Wayne scored two runs in the 6th inning and two more in the 7th inning to tie the game 5-5. PFW then scored two runs in the top of the 8th inning to take a 7-5 lead. Western did not score in the bottom of the 8th. PFW won the game 7-5.

Weather: 49, overcast.

Attendance at North Dakota State = 205.

In the first game, South Dakota State beat North Dakota 4-2.

Double-elimination games begin on Thursday:
12 Noon: #1 North Dakota State vs #4 South Dakota State.
2:30 PM: #2 South Dakota vs #6 Purdue Fort Wayne.
5:00 PM: The two losers play in an elimination game.

On a generally positive note, the all-weather turf field in Fargo is very nice.

NDSU freshman hurler and Summit All-2nd Team pitcher Paige Vargas throwing both games on Saturday and only giving up 1 run is amazing. Summit League All-First team pitcher KK Leddy not used on Saturday. Go figure.
