Re: @Unknown
They say that its because at the tie, the hitters were just tipping the ball, instead of hitting it hard. Then Gattaz, as any captain should do, tried to raise the team up in a way i think she lost it a little bit . Then Kasi was a little too empathetic and started arguing back.
I think Gattaz was wrong in the way she spoke to her team but Kasi was also wrong. Anyway, they said that they already talked and set everyhing right! #LetsGoMinas Reply
