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.
Been wondering why he hasn’t been getting more work…pitched well vs Ags last year in Regs and very well vs TSU last week
Same lineup as last night
Bond retires the side in order (a 1-out single was erased by a caught stealing)
3 up 3 down
A leadoff HBP and a single put Bond in trouble, but he works out of it.
2 out single by Minter and he steals 2nd, but he’s stranded.
Leadoff single, stolen base, and he comes home on a grounder up the middle that Coldiron almost makes a great play on, but ends up throwing it away. 1-0 McNeese leads
2-out RBI single scores another…2-0
M3…McNeese State leads 2-0
2 out single by Etzel, but he’s caught stealing

Coogs have something going with a leadoff double by Hollis, error allowing Davis to reach, and a single to left by Lockhart that scores Hollis…2-1. Still no outs and men at 1st and 2nd.
Fuentes single loads the bases. Another error allows Minter to reach and scores Davis. 2-2. Bases loaded again, still no outs. McNeese going to the pen.

Coldiron single to center plates 2 more…5-2 Coogs
Etzel with a double to the left field corner scores two more…7-2 Coogs

Coldiron steals 2nd and 3rd around Etzel striking out. Hollis walks. Davis singles to center, Coldiron scores…11-2 Coogs

T6…UH leads 12-2
Note: With that single by Lovelace, every Cougar starter has a hit tonight.
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.
Edwards hits the first batter, but induces a double play on his way to retiring the side
M6,UH leads 12-2
Couldn’t agree more.
