All four CCC teams won today, including the #3 seeds College of Idaho and Corban in “upsets”. A couple of the top teams in the country almost lost. Undefeated #2 Marian won in extras and #5 Lindsay Wilson had a similar result, but both will make it to day two without a loss.

SOU will face Hope International tomorrow in Medford at 11 a.m. The winner will make it to day three only needing to win one more time for the right to go to the NAIA Softball World Series.

“Murderers’ Row” refers to the 1927 Yankees, who batted a combined .307–shy of the Tigers’ record .316 in 1921. League averages were much higher then (about .290–similar to the NAIA softball average–compared to about .260 in recent decades for MLB).

Flash forward almost one hundred years to this group. They are hitting a combined .369 as a team (and even higher for this starting crew of nine). That puts them at #2 in the NAIA among teams with over 1,500 plate appearances (and #4 if that number is lowered to 1,300). In the 10-team Cascade Conference they have five of the top 12 hitters and all nine are in the top 25.

We’ll find out later today what three teams will be coming to Medford next week to try to prevent the Raiders from moving on to the NAIA Softball World Series in Springfield, Missouri. Last year SOU went in as the #8-ranked team (and knocked off #15 St. Francis to move on). This year they will likely go in ranked #4 or #5 and face two teams lower in the rankings as well as an unranked team.
