I have confidence in Knight or Murphy in either game. What matters most is to win these first 2 games and set this up for a game 3 where you have the chance to win the region and set your pitching up for the super! Of course if you have to play game 4 is all hands on deck!
No team in any region better overlook any other team. On any day any body can beat you!
Nick Sandlin, the aforementioned ace, speaking about the regional and how the team’s No. 4 starter pitched a 3-hit complete game shutout in the C-USA title game Sunday. Sandlin said he hopes to set the tone for the rest of the pitchers to follow in the regional. He also speaks about facing Dallas Baptist.
It’s natural for us to focus on the pitching, but the key for us is to get to the starterss early. At least I think that’s key. I haven’t heard anything to suggest they have great BP’s. Perhaps they do. However, our batters have done pretty well against some awfully good SEC pitching this season. Yeah, I know there are some notable exceptions, but I’ll be surprised if we’re held to just a few hits.
The hogs need to take advantage of what the pitchers are giving them to hit. The SEC should have had enough top notch pitching for our hitters to see and compete against that they should be able to come up with hits! I just hope we take good AB’s
and take our rips at strikes.
I doubt any pitcher they will face will be any harder to hit than Mize or Singer!
