Ball State Softball Proves Again BSU>IU

Other StuffYou’d think that by now fans of That School in Bloomington would understand their hierarchy in the college sports field in Indiana. I’d say somewhere right above Ivy Tech and Purdue-Calumet but that’s probably being generous to the Hoosiers. Ball State football has done their part the last three times they’ve faced IU to demonstrate their dominance, and tonight Ball State softball jumped in on taking a few swings at the Indiana piñata, stomping out the Hoosiers 19-9. I’m sure it would have been worse had the game not ended in the fifth inning because of the run rule, you know, the one that exists to stop clearly superior teams from continuing to embarrass lower echelon teams as run after run after run after run pours on.

That’s right, ladies and gents. They were so concerned with the lack of performance from Indiana, they stopped the game rather than make them continue. Gosh, that feels good to write. It probably feels good to read. Go ahead, read it again. I’ll wait.

Selena Reyna was the biggest culprit of this thumping, dropping two homeruns, one of which was a grandslam that sent the contest to the run rule, along with a single and a walk. That’s a hell of a day at the dish, and I’d say that the junior from Houston earned an extra orange slice and a Capri Sun for that. The whole team performed well, though. Ten Cardinals had at least one hit, and the Cards scored in every inning. And the most important thing, Indiana did far worse.

It was the 400th career win for head coach Tyra Perry and I’m glad they scheduled  such a lower-caliber team to pick up the milestone win against.
