4-4 bottom 8 as we hit 4 straight batters. This is brutal to watch. Starting pitching is very good, bullpen is absolutely horrible.

DAWGs lose 5-4 on a walk off HR in the bottom of the 9th.

Gave this one away! 

After getting runners on 1st & 2nd with no outs in the top of the 9th, ground ball to the 2B, but "interference" is called on the runner going to 2nd, so both runners are called "out".  Runner on 2nd has to go back to 2nd & is "picked off, P to 3b, trying to steal 3rd.  Skole should know cardinal rule of not making the 3rd out at 3rd base.

Skole is trying to build for the future, but that isn't much consolation for this year.  6 of the 9 starting batters last night were either FR, RS-FR, or Soph.  Peden is the only SR & Leasure and Davis are JRs.  

Aside from poor pitching (walks, WPs, & HBP ARE KILLING US!) these kids can't hit worth a lick. Heck, Peden is a SR and is only hitting .216 this year!  5 of the 9 are batting under .200, & 3 are over .300 (McCarthy, Corbitt, & Leasure).

Anyone know why Lane Botkin did not play last night. 

With how many FR & SOPHs are playing this year, I expect SOCON Championship & trip to the NCAAs in 2021!

Surprise. A sorry Furman team beats us like a drum. At least we know that all these freshman will become sophomores and still not be able to hit. The future is set.

This is what happens when a coach lingers too long to pad his retirement and, we don't thankfully recruit hicks.

SWEPT!!!! 7 - 2 in game 3.  Error in the 6th leads to 5 unearned runs!

We get our 2 runs on a Ben Peden HR in the top of the 9th.

I sure hope that all these mistakes are because Skole is playing so many freshmen & sophomores.

Where to start. 17 more errors than any team in the league, 8th in hitting, last in slugging, last in OBP, last in RBI, last in runs scored, last in walks, last in HBP (not our pitchers to be sure). At least we got 2 from VMI because now we have the upper tier teams remaining with the exception of WCU. And we are 0-10 on the road. Long season awaits. Get to 18 wins and as they say, wait till next year. Still watch with interest but frustration is the key word.

Last in OBP is concerning to me. We don’t have the talent to just go up to the plate and jack away.
