Houston vs. HBU (L 3-1)



I like the looks of this lineup:

CF Etzel
2B Hollis
1B Davis
DH Lockhart
LF Fuentes
RF Minter
3B Triolo
C Lovelace
SS Coldiron

P Hurdsman

So, how good is HBU? They’re 4-8 on the year with 3 cancellations (all by Western Michigan due to a snowstorm that messed with travel plans).

Their 4 wins came against Baylor (who they’re 1-2 against), Fresno State (who they’re 1-3 against), Rice (who they’re 1-2 against), and TSU. They also lost a game to A&M.

They played TSU the week before the Coogs did and pounded them 15-3…so, the Coogs definitely can’t take this team lightly.

2 singles and a double steal puts runners on 2nd and 3rd with no outs

Hurdsman with a K for the 1st out and that’s it for him. Pulido comes in and gives up a walk to load the bases.

Suicide squeeze works and goes for a hit…3-0 HBU

Very frustrating how bad the offense is this year. I’m afraid this is going to be a very frustrating year.
