    I doubt any of our fans are worrying about making the tournament. But starting conference play 2-7, losing our first three C-USA series (two in Ruston), and getting swept at home by USM and their 4 seniors vs our 15 seniors was definitely cause for serious concern.

    It was cause for panic, but not concern.

    And it was 1-7 before it was 2-7. 14-4 in the last 18 conference games.

    Most fans knew we would be fine with the schedule being so front loaded. We were not failing in any area other than starting pitching. Once we FINALLY decided to start our best guy we were on the way.

    Not sure if any of you caught the discussion tonight, but it came up for the first time in the post game...

    Many of us have screamed for Nate to be our Friday guy since he was finally made a starter. For some reason(s) our HC wanted him as our Saturday guy. Now with a Thursday, Friday, Saturday series coming up followed by a Wednesday game 1 in Biloxi how do you use Nate?

    I agree, but we still need to win the series at Middle...or is is worth a gamble to use Nate in relief only Thursday and/or Friday?

    I realize this is true of many teams but we seemingly hit really well against mediocre pitching but not so much against decent pitching and really poorly against good pitching.

    Re: May 13 C-USA Games

    Our hitters are as good as any of the top C-USA teams.

    We are the 3rd best hitting team at .302 behind USM (.313) and Middle (.305)

    Gladu is #2, Ullrich is #11, Washam is #16, Diaz is #26, Washam is #39. All of these guys are over .300 and in the top 50 of C-USA.



    Still it's all about pitching.

    Nate wasn't as sharp as usual today and still pitched a great game.

    Still believe our elevated performance against lower tier pitching confounds the overall averages. What are our percentages against decent pitching?

    There is no stat for what you are imagining Boxer.

    Baseball (the game) is about great pitching. Some days pitchers are better than others so you can't just say "Tech does not hit well when facing good pitching."

    If you give me an example I bet I can debate you on the situation and why the hitting did not produce the desired results.

    Example: Wednesday against Lafayette, we faced a great pitcher (on that night). We loaded the bases with no outs. Our best hitters were not able to produce a run. That does not mean those hitters C-USA leading stats are beefed up against lesser pitching. It's baseball.

    Our bats really seem to come alive when Nate starts. It sees that we have double digit run production when he in on the bump. I will be disappointed if he is not our starter for game 1 in the conference tournament. We do not want to get in losers bracket after 1 game.
