Game 5 Thread vs Missouri (L 4-2)

Top of the 3rd - no score
Hollis grounded out to 2nd
Wong (0-0 HBP) is hit by pitch
Padgett (0-1 FC) up…Wong picked off. Padgett flies out to center

M3 - no score

Romero struck out the 1st 5 batters before giving up a double.

COOGS had runners on 2nd and 3rd after a Joe Davis double in the first and couldn’t score.

It looks like after the opening weekend, the coaching staff showed the hitters last year and said this is how to hit and run the bases.

Very frustrating. Men on 2nd & 3rd and cannot get a run. Picked off at first.


Bottom of the third
Missouri gets a double and then Romero can’t pick up the sac bunt. A stolen base then puts runners on 2nd and third. Romero gets his 6th K, but Wong can’t hang on to it, loading the bases. Wong then allows a passed ball on the next pitch allowing a run and the other 2 runners move up…1-0 Missouri

COOGS finally get an out as the next batter fouls out to Wong.

Ball Game - Mizzou wins 4-2

Notwithstanding what happens here in the 9th, I’m going to go out on a limb and say we need to consider a change at the hitting coach position (whoever that is). Given how last year went and how this year has started, we need some serious help in that area.

We let Greg Evans go last year and brought in Caleb Barker as the new hitting coach prior to the season.
