We have a 3-game series vs Dayton this weekend that will go a long way in determining the A10 conference winner.  If we win out and Dayton beats UMass twice next weekend, we'll be 18-5 and UMass (currently in 1st) will be 14-5, otherwise UMass finishes 1st by a few 10ths.  If we finish 2nd, we get a conference bye along with UMass.  (UMass/Fordham 1/2 - like the old days!)  SJU is 1/2 game behind us in 3rd but have a tougher remaining schedule vs GW and GM.

Dayton is 25-21, 8-10, ranked #196 RPI to our #52.  They have a good hitting team (.302 BA) with decent speed and good pitching (3.16 ERA), so their record is a little confusing.  They even lost 2 games last weekend to next to last place URI.

Quense is in the circle.  Figueroa still isn't back from her concussion, which is an unusually long time.  Van Hoven is in uniform and is walking around for senior day in a boot, not yet to play.

Cash is in the circle for Dayton, last year's A10 Pitcher of the Year. (2.39 ERA this year)  She has about a 4:1 K:BB ratio.

Quense retired the side in order in the first.
Canessa led off with a single but was caught stealing, her first time in 12 tries.  We then popped up and grounded out.  0-0 after 1.

In the 2nd, Quense gave up a single but no runs.
Johnston led off with a single.  Vergona doubled, but Skrepenak, pinch running for Johnston, was thrown out at home.  0-0 after 2.

In the 3rd, Quense gave up a leadoff single.   A line drive off Quense's glove fell into a diving Hughes' glove at SS, who then doubled the runner off first.  She then gave up another single and walked a batter before getting out of the inning.
In the bottom half, Trivelpiece singled.  Hughes walked with 2 out but Shaw flied out.  Hughes' walk was her 44th this year, a new program record.  0-0 after 3.

In the 4th, Quense gave up a leadoff double. Dayton is hitting her better than we are hitting Cash.  She then gave up a bunt single to put runners on the corners.  An infield single loaded the bases.  She then got 2 Ks before walking in a run.
In the bottom half, Johnston led off with a double.  Mayer blooped a single.  Quense was HBP to load the bases with no outs.  Vergona K'd, as did Storm.  Trivelpiece grounded out.  Not scoring there could have cost us the game.  Rams down 1-0 after 4. 

In the 5th, Quense gave up a 1-out single before getting a line drive double play.
In our half, Canessa missed a HR by about a foot, foul and was then called out on strikes.  Hughes flied out to deep CF.  Shaw flied out.  Rams down 1-0 after 5.

In the 6th, Quense walked the first batter, got a GB force, then a K, and a fly out.
In the bottom half, Johnston singled to lead it off.  Mayer K'd.  WP moved Skrepenak (PR) to 2b.  A Quense fly out moved her to 3b.  Vergona was called out on strikes.  Rams down 1-0 after 6.

In the 7th, Quense gave up 2 LD singles to LF.   A GB DP ended the threat.
In the bottom half, Ferri batting .000 with only 6 ABs, but a senior, PH for Storm, lined out.  Class move by Bridget, giving her an AB with so much on the line.  Trivelpiece K'd.  Canessa walked.  Hughes singled Canessa to 3b.  With a 1-2 count, with 2 out, Shaw doubled down the RF line, scoring Canessa from 3b and Hughes all the way from 1b.  Shaw is now 2nd all time in Ram RBIs.

Rams win 2-1 in a walkoff!

We had 9 hits, with Johnston getting 3 of them.  We had 7 K's against Cash.  With that, Cash broke her own Dayton record with 186 for the year.
Quense gave up 9 hits, with 4 Ks and 3 BBs. 
 
We're 37-13, 13-5.  UMass lost 6-5 to LaSalle, a big upset, giving us 1st.  It's so tight, if we had lost this one, we would have been tied for 3rd with Dayton.  Dayton's loss them to a tie for 4th with George Mason, which lost to SLU.

With it being Senior Day, 6 seniors, Canessa, Van Hoven, Ferri, Vergona, Mayer and Quense being honored, the 2nd game probably won't start until 2:45.  All are starters except for Ferri, so that's a lot of key players to replace.  Quense does have one more year of eligibility though.

In game 2, Aughinbaugh is in the circle with Quense at 1b, Shaw at 3b, Mayer moving to SS, and Hughes back to 2b.  Johnston is DP for Trivelpiece.
Snyder (3.03 ERA) is pitching for Dayton.

In the 1st, Aughinbaugh walked the leadoff batter, then gave up a double, got a GB out, gave up a single and a run, then got the runner at 1b in a rundown before switching to get the runner at 3b in a rundown for out #3.
In our half, Canessa walked.  Hughes reached on an error on Snyder.  Shaw walked to load the bases.  Johnston K'd looking.  WAY too many of those today.  Mayer walked, Canessa scored.  Vergona and Quense K'd swinging.  3 LOB.  1-1 after 1.

In the 2nd, Aughinbaugh gave up a walk, hit a batter, got an out on an interference call, then gave up 2 singles and 2 runs.
In the bottom half, Aughinbaugh singled.  Skrepenak fouled out.  Canessa hit one to the wall but it was caught.  Aughingbaugh stole 2nd (now 9/11).  Hughes lined out to SS.  Rams down 3-1 after 2.

In the 3rd, Aughinbaugh gave up a single and a sac bunt but no runs.
In our half, Shaw lined out to 2b, Johnston got an infield single, Mayer walked.  Vergona K'd for the 4th time today.  She doesn't belong hitting 6th.  A WP moved runners to 2nd and 3rd.  Quense hit a 3-run opposite field HR, her 5th HR of the year.  Aughinbaugh walked.  Skrepenak grounded out.  Rams up 4-3 after 3.

In the 4th, Aughinbaugh retired the side in order.
In the bottom of the 4th, Weaver (4.20 ERA) in to pitch for Dayton.  Canessa flied out.  Hughes walked.  Shaw was HBP.  Johnston grounded out.  Mayer lined out to SS. 2 LOB in scoring position.  rams up 4-3 after 4. 

In the 5th, Stocks in to pitch for Aughinbaugh, walked a batter on 4 pitches.  Mayer booted a GB at SS.  We then got a GB DP and a fly out to end it.
In our half, Aughinbaugh got an infield single but that was it.  Rams up 4-3 after 5.

In the 6th, Stocks retired the side in order. 
In the bottom of the 6th, Canessa grounded out.  New pitcher for Dayton, Gilliam (4.58 ERA).  Hughes flied out.  Shaw K'd looking.  Rams up 4-3 after 6.

In the top of the 7th, Stocks gave up 2 singles, a runner reaching 3b, but no runs.

Rams win 4-3.  Keep 1st place over UMass.  Not our best performance, but a win.

We had only 4 hits.  Aughinbaugh had 2.  Quense had the big 3-run HR. 
Aughinbaugh went 4 innings, giving up 3 runs on 6 hits, with 0 Ks and 2 BBs.  Stocks went 3 innings, giving up 2 hits with 1 BB.

We're 38-13, 14-5.  It looks like UMass is 2nd at 11-4 with a walkoff in the 7th vs LaSalle.  SJU lost 2 to GW so are 11-7.  GM, still playing, but losing to SLU, is 11-7.  Dayton is 11-8.

Looks like they control their own destiny.  Win out in the conference and it does not matter what anyone else does.

Close games today that could have gone the other way and LaSalle almost took 2 from UMass, so they're no cupcake for next week.
I think if both we and UMass win out, they win by a few 10ths of a percent.  ̀

In game 3, Quense is pitching.  Senior Ferri, with only 7 ABs, is DP.  It's Cash again pitching for Dayton.

In the top of the 1st, Quense gave up a HR.
In our half, Canessa flied out  Hughes walked, breaking her own record yesterday with 46 now.  Shaw K'd.  Hughes stole 2b, her 23rd.  Johnston singled her home and took 2b on the throw.  Hughes was tagged out but the catcher blocked the plate without the ball, so Hughes was safe.  Mayer popped up.  1-1 after 1.

In the 2nd, Quense only gave up an infield single.
In the bottom half, Quense walked.  Burbridge in to PR.  Vergona K'd again, adding to her 4 from yesterday.  Burbridge caught stealing.  Ferri K'd.  1-1 after 2.

In the 3rd, Quense gave up a double, but that was it.
In our half, Aughinbaugh got an infield single.  Canessa had a sac bunt.  Hughes K'd.  Shaw lined out to CF.  1-1 after 3.

In the 4th, Quense gave up a leadoff bloop single, got a pop up on a bunt, gave up another single, runner caught off 2b, and a pop up.
In our half, Johnston singled.  Mayer hit a comebacker but Johnston was safe at 2b.  Quense popped up.  Vergona K'd again.  Ferri popped up.  2 LOB.  1-1 after 4.

In the 5th, Quense got 2 Ks and a GB out.
In the bottom of the 5th, Aughinbaugh grounded out.  Canessa singled.  Hughes K'd.  Shaw lined out to the pitcher.  1-1 after 5.

In the 6th, Shaw booted a GB to allow the leadoff hitter on.  Quense then gave up a single.  A sac bunt moved the runners up.  A fly ball out to Skrepenak waas followed by her throwing a runner out at home to keep the game tied.
In our half, Weaver in to pitch for Dayton (4.02 ERA).  Johnston reached on an error.  Mayer doubled but Johnston stepped off 3b and was tagged out.  Quense walked.  Vergona K'd for the 3rd time today after 4 yesterday.  Ferri grounded into a force.  Tied at 1 after 6.

In the 7th, Quense got a LD out.  She then hit a batter, who stole 2b.  DeSalvo, who was hit, may led the league in that category.  A single moved the runner to 3b, the hitter moving to 2b on the throw.  A HR was called back as having gone just foul.  Quense got a GB out.  Stocks in to pitch for Quense.  Stocks got a K to end the threat. 
In the bottom of the 7th, Aughinbaugh singled upthe middle.  Bridget likes using a good hitter in the 9 position.  Canessa hit a hard GB off their 3b for a single.  Gilliam (4.51 ERA) in to pitch for Dayton.  Hughes got a bunt single to load the bases.  Shaw had a walkoff single.  That's Madi being Madi!

Rams win 2-1 on walkoff single by Shaw  We go to 39-13, 15-5.

We got 9 hits.  Canessa, Johnston and Aughinbaugh each getting 2.  We had 7 Ks again.  Not sure why Dayton switched pitchers.
Quense went 6.2, giving up 1 run on 7 hits with 3 Ks.  Stocks finished it off with a K.   

UMass squeaked by LaSalle putting us back into a tie with them for first.  LaSalle won't be an easy competitor next weekend for us in Philly.  Dayton was our last conference home game, but we play St. John's on Wed at home.

We haven't been playing well, but have managed to win.  Figueroa still has concussion related issues and Van Hoven is still in a boot.  Hopefully the former will be back next weekend.

Current standings, except George Mason is 11-9 and St. Louis is 10-10. (not yet updated)  http://www.atlantic10.com/standings/Standings.dbml?&DB_OEM_ID=31600&SPID=136219
We need to win 1 more game next weekend than UMass does to finish 1st.

Previous post eliminated text and kept ?  The query was why not winning Pct, in which case Fordham wins if both teams are swept, win 1 or 2 games. Only if both sweep does Umass have a higher winning pct. What rule governs winning league? Thanks

You may be right.

Right now, we are at 15-5 (.75) and UMass is at 12-4 (.75).  If it stayed like this, (with all games rained out) UMass beat us 2 of 3, so I think they win 1st.

Let's say we both win 3 next weekend:
We'd be at 18-5 (.782) and UMass would be at 15-4 (.789).

If we sweep and UMass loses 1, we'd be at .782 and they'd be at 14-5 (.736).

If we each lose 1, we'd be at 17-6 (.739) and UMass would be at 14-5  (.736)

If we each lose 2, we'd be at 16-7 (.696) and UMass would be at 13-6 (.684)

If we each lost 3, we'd be at 15-8 (.652) and UMass would be at 12-7 (.632), maybe allowing SJU to sneak in (now 12-7).  15-7 for them would give them .682.  14-8 would give them .636.  They play George Mason (11-9).

Shows what good my Fordham Accounting major did me in my original analysis. ; )

If it is consistent with other A10 sports that I have looked into, the first tiebreaker is head-to-head.

Agree except for lose three--15-8 would be .652; better than UMass ,632

Since Umass has played four fewer the present pct tie is an anomaly; the only way this holds is if all games this weekend are rained out--which, unfortunatelly, might happen.
