No .We did not play "well enough to win" .We lost because we did not play well enough to win.Troy did and beat us.Perhaps today will be different.I hate JMU.We just blew a great opportunity in the First...
Just don't consistently play small ball well enough. Leave way too many guys on base in critical moments, which we all know, every run counts with the pen.

Have to improve at moving guys over with sac bunts, sac flies, hitting the ball to the right side to get a guy to 3rd...etc. Seems like the only way we can score is with a hit.

Speaking of scoring on hits...Drum with a RBI double down the line scores Boyd who smoked a double into LeftCenter. 1-0 Apps.

And another RBI single by Cross! Now that we've had our coffee, the bats have awoken!

OK - so who actually was playing CF?
Hunter Wilder played CF until they pinch hit for him late in the game.
Thanks - as was mentioned earlier, I got confused because of the TV guys

You know the game and I depend on your insight . I'm a basketball , football guy , baseball no real perspective other than reading a box score and the record.I like our team but I am too old for "moral victories" .I want to win .

I've noticed that the umpires let ball after ball hit the dirt and they keep them in play. In the majors every ball that touches the dirt gets thrown out. Is that for cost reasons at this level to keep using balls? I'd always thought that a scuff mark on a ball is what some pitchers love.

LaSpaluto comes in and closes the door in the 6th. What a play by Drum to get the 3rd out!

5-3 App. Need some more cushion.

Scouting report for sure. Slider down and in, chases more often than not.

Henry comes in for LaSpaluto 2 on, 1 out T8. Our pen is already spent thru 1.75 games. Have to score some runs in a bad way!

There is our leadoff baserunner. Bunt him over, get him in. But Boyd is up...

Update-did not choose small ball. Did not get him to 2nd. 1 out. Tough call with Boyd up.
