We travel to Coastal Carolina on Tuesday and return home to host FAU this weekend.
Coastal is a Top 10 team in the country right now.
Not much changed in the standings this week. DBU & UTSA are separating themselves a bit. We are sitting in 3rd on top of a pack of 4 teams playing for seeding. Then there are 3 teams at the bottom fighting for the final spot in the Tourney.
We seriously need to improve at defending base stealers and also get better at stealing ourselves. It has become a big liability…why would we have Jackson stealing with Cam up to bat against a new pitcher throwing strikes?
I think Kramer was the key tonight. When he came in, we just seemed to stabilize and once we got a lead he maintained complete control against a stout offensive team…very similar to hus outing against SC.
So we have two Top-10 wins this year, but against flubbing series against “lesser” opponents, it rings hollow. It’s like those years in basketball when we would beat a ranked Tennessee early on, and then limp across the finish line.
It’s great, and should not be diminished because it shows the team playing to its potential. But it’s just upsetting that we can pull these games off in spite of our standard storyline.
