SOU’s Kelsey Randall was chosen as the CCC softball Player of the Week. She went 9-for-17 against the College of Idaho, helping SOU to a 3-1 record over the weekend. Randall had two triples, a double, and five runs scored. She has reached base safely in 16 of the Raiders’ 18 games, leading Southern Oregon to their 14-4 record.

Southern Oregon’s home openers are this weekend, beginning with a doubleheader on Friday at 2 p.m.

The big question for this season was pitching. Gabby Sandoval, a true freshman, appears to be the answer to the question. Sandoval is now 6-0 on the season, and SOU is 8-1 overall.

The home opener is just over three weeks away.

Raiders survive day two


@SOURaiders @SOU_Softball @Kelsee_R @A_Dirty3

After a near miss on day one, Southern Oregon went 2-0 on day two to earn a Sunday game.

The Raiders beat Corban, with an offensive explosion (16-5), for the first time this year. The other four SOU-Corban games weren’t nearly as important as this one so their timing was good.

If SOU can get by Great Falls Sunday morning (11 a.m. start), they will earn a trip to Regionals. They will then need to beat Eastern Oregon twice to win the tournament. It seems a bit unfair that the Raiders will have to win five games to win the tournament while EOU will only need to win four (and Eastern didn’t have to play Oregon Tech–a team they didn’t beat all season), especially since SOU won the conference and was the #1 seed, but, unfortunately, that’s the nature of things.

Out at home …

Kelsey Randall tagged out at home after OIT catcher blocked direct access to the plate

@SOURaiders @SOU_Softball @Kelsee_R

… or was she safe?

SOU beat Oregon Tech this morning in extra innings to continue their season. They play again at 4:30 today (5/7/16).

The call above could have been the difference in the game though. The umpire ruled the runner was out without considering the obstruction rule. Here it is:

9.4.1 Obstruction is the intentional or unintentional act of a defensive team member that hinders or impedes the progress of a runner who is legally running bases, unless the fielder is in possession of the ball, in the act of fielding a batted ball, or in the act of catching a thrown ball.

1. The defensive player must be in the process of catching the ball and not merely positioning, waiting for a throw to arrive.

So did the defensive player position and/or wait for a throw to arrive while obstructing home plate? You be the judge:

Another odd thing about this play is (in the series of seven photos showing the entire sequence that I have) the umpire began calling the runner out (with his fist) long before the tag was made. The top photo is the last in the sequence, and it’s the first showing a tag. The umpire was opening his clenched fist in this photo. He had an “out fist” in the three photos prior to this one before the tag.
