Houston vs. McNeese State Game 1 (W 13-9)

(Patrick) #1

(Patrick) #2

McNeese has been pretty good the last few years…this year they’ve collapsed so far. McNeese is currently 2-9 on the year and has been swept by Wichita State and UTSA, lost 2 out of 3 to Texas State, and lost to Louisiana Tech. They did beat Mississippi State last Wednesday 6-3 so there is reason to worry.

They are currently being outscored 6.9-3.3 runs and have an RPI of 215.

Coogs haven’t beaten a team this year that has more than 3 wins.


I’m already not holding my breath.

Where did these bats come from?! I love it!

Wherever they came from, they need to make sure they keep these and throw the other ones out.

In all seriousness, good to see before a solid opponent this weekend.
