Bottom 1st

So, the UH radio broadcast isn’t working and the McNeese video is behind a paywall.

Here’s the McNeese radio broadcast if you want it:

Top 2nd
Triolo doubles to leadoff the inning, advances to 3rd on a wild pitch, and scores on a Coldiron single…Coogs lead 2-0

Coldiron caught stealing so it looks like we’re having baserunning issues again. Nothing else doing.

M2…UH leads 2-0

Thanks for the link

No problem.

Cougar radio link is working now:

Bottom 2nd
1 out back to back singles; the 2nd hits Bond in the neck, but he’s able to continue after they check on him. Bond then walks the next batter on 4 pitches to load the bases. Bond K’s the next batter, but walks the next one to force in a run…Coogs lead 1-0

And that will be it for Bond. Doesn’t sound like he’s doing well after getting hit in the neck. It’ll be another long night for the bullpen. And, holy crap, it’s Clayton Aguilar on to make his collegiate debut

And he hits the first batter to force another run in…Tied 2-2

K’s the 2nd batter to end the inning

T3…Tied 2-2

Top 3rd
Hollis with a 1 out single, Davis follow with a single moving him to 3rd, Lockhart with a Fielder’s choice to score him…Coogs lead 3-2

M3…UH leads 3-2

Bottom 3rd

Aguilar works a quick, easy inning

T4…UH leads 3-2

Top 4th
Triolo with a leadoff triple and Coldiron brings him home with a sac fly. Coogs lead 4-2

With 2 outs, Lovelace reaches on an error, and Etzel is hit by a pitch which prompts McNeese to go to the pen. New reliever strands the 2 Coogs.

M4…UH leads 4-2

Bottom 4th
Aguilar gives up a 2 out walk, but tallies 2 more K’s to breeze through another inning

T5…UH leads 4-2

Top 5th
Leadoff single by Davis, Minter reaches 1st by error with 1 out, Triolo singles to right to load the bases, and Coldiron walks to bring home Davis…Coogs lead 5-2

M5…UH leads 5-2

Coogs leaving a lot of runners left on base

Bottom 5th
Trevis Sundgren on for Aguilar. Hopefully, he can finally get a good outing.

K’s the first batter, and then walks the next two…that’s it for him as Hattingh is on in relief.

Hattingh gets a grounder to force the runner at 2nd (and should have been a double play) and that’s all for him…

Ott in to pitch now. Runners on the corners with 2 outs. Ott walks the bases loaded. He K’s the last batter to get out of the jam.

T6…UH leads 5-2

Top 6th
Leadoff walk for Lovelace, Davis HBP with 2 outs, and Lockhart follows with a walk to load the bases, but that’s it.

M6…UH leads 5-2

Bottom 6th
Lester on to pitch now
Leadoff homer makes it 5-3 Coogs

Lester walks the next batter, and he’s done. Bielamowicz on to pitch

Bielo gives up a single before getting an out on a Fielder’s Choice. Homerun puts McNeese in the lead 6-5

And that’s it for Bielo, Edwards on to pitch

Edwards gets out of the inning

T7…McNeese State leads 6-5
