I like the looks of this lineup:
So, how good is HBU? They’re 4-8 on the year with 3 cancellations (all by Western Michigan due to a snowstorm that messed with travel plans).
Their 4 wins came against Baylor (who they’re 1-2 against), Fresno State (who they’re 1-3 against), Rice (who they’re 1-2 against), and TSU. They also lost a game to A&M.
They played TSU the week before the Coogs did and pounded them 15-3…so, the Coogs definitely can’t take this team lightly.
Hurdsman gives up a 2 out double and a home run.
M1…HBU leads 2-0
T2…HBU leads 2-0
HBU gets a 2 out single, but nothing else
M2…HBU leads 2-0
1 out double by Fuentes and a 2 out walk by Triolo amount to nothing.
T3…HBU leads 2-0
2 singles and a double steal puts runners on 2nd and 3rd with no outs
Hurdsman with a K for the 1st out and that’s it for him. Pulido comes in and gives up a walk to load the bases.
Suicide squeeze works and goes for a hit…3-0 HBU
M3…HBU leads 3-0
Coldiron HBP to leadoff, Hollis reaches on a 1 out FC, but Coogs can’t get anything else
T4…HBU leads 3-0
CF robbed Davis of a double and probably two runs with a nice leaping catch
Pulido gives up a 1 out single and HBP, but escapes trouble.
M4…HBU leads 3-0
3 up-3 down
T5…HBU leads 3-0
Pulido gives up a 1 out single and gets a nice diving stop from Triolo to end the inning
M5…HBU leads 3-0
Need some runs
Easy inning for HBU
T6…HBU leads 3-0
Easy 1-2-3 inning for Pulido
M6…HBU leads 3-0
1 out bomb by Joe Davis makes it 3-1
T7…HBU leads 3-1
1 out single doesn’t go anywhere
M7…HBU leads 3-1
Minters leads off with a double
With 1 out, Bartlett pinch hits for Lovelace and he walks.
T8…HBU leads 3-1
Very frustrating how bad the offense is this year. I’m afraid this is going to be a very frustrating year.
