At the game again tonight so updates after scores mostly.
Real cold by the way
Ump has a huge strike zone. High, low, in, out, doesn’t matter. Better be swinging tonight.
Fletcher has 5Ks and has only given up a HBP
Bielo’s the only one to get on for the Coogs with a single last inning, but was caught stealing to end the inning.
Coogs walk it off in the 9th after loading th bases with no outs. Davis K’d and then Slaughter singles through the right side.
Fletcher was nails again and shut out USF through 8 with 11 K before Henry shut the door in the 9th.
Go for a series win tomorrow.
