So we're coming off another home conference series loss, and traveling to a top 10 team. You would think you would want to gain some confidence for the rest of the year? NOOOOOOOOOOO!

This team doesn't have it. Whatever changes that happen in the offseason, need to happen. No status quo.

USC finally gets 2 hits and 2 runs to tie the game in the bottom of the 7th.

Tyler Johnson to pitch the 9th, USC up by a slim 3-2 margin.

Jonah Bride has been the hero of the game.....

The bunt set us up for all of our runs tonight. We had opportunities early on to bunt and move runners into scoring position and we didnt, but in the 7th and 8th we did and got production

Sorry, I thought we were done with the bunting discussion, but since you fired the shot....

Posts and thought processes like this are what perpetuates the bunting myths. I am not saying that I disagreed with the decision on the first bunt, but this is how we scored:

We led off with a double, then got a walk, and the runners were sacrificed to 2nd and 3rd. The next batter was HBP, which would have advanced the runners anyway. Then a single scored both runs. The sacrifice basically resulted in an out that prevented us from adding more runs. Avoiding the DP - which you guys cite as a reason for bunting - was not a factor because the HBP set it up again, only with one out so the DP would have been even more damaging, ending the inning with no runs scored.

The final run came on a walk, sacrifice bunt, and a double. Nine times out of ten, a double scores the run from 1st. So again, all that the sacrifice did was eliminate the one time out of ten. And it gave us an out, which made it less likely to get a runner home, who was in scoring position, with a much needed insurance run. Davidson had already hit two solo HRs and got a double in the 9th, so the insurance run would have been helpful.

So no, we did not win the game because of bunting. And could very well have lost it.

Well. We won. I guess we did end up using that lone win against MSU to springboard after all...into a 3-2 win over....Davidson.

This coming weekend will say plenty about what we have to look forward to the rest of the season.

Last night was abysmal until the 7th.

Yep. We needed one, we got one. No problems here. Situational baseball.

We've been for the most part slip up free during the week. Not so much worried about that.

Obviously, our bats don't look good going into the weekend. That's seriously concerning.

Yeah, last night wasn't pretty by any stretch, but a win is a win, and hopefully our last two games will get us moving in the right direction for this weekend.

I will always have faith in our pitching, and stringing a few hits together is all it will take to really get this team hot.

Where's John Jones? I know he was in a horrendous slump last year, but that was last year. Why can't he get a shot now when obviously nobody else is doing anything?
