Well obviously I ain't too happy how that turned out but congrats on the win ZZ and the comeback. :thumbups:
But why, oh WHY did Chance Ruffin have to get cramps!?!?!?!
After that blast in the 1st inning he settled down and was pitching a great game. I couldn't believe it when they took him out until they brought up that he was cramping up. I gotta say that after the epic 13 inning, 169 pitches and 12.1 innings of no-hit ball against B.C. Austin Woods just hasn't been the same. Augie has more baseball knowledge in one hair on his head than I do but I wish we had used our set-up relievers at first before bringing Wood in. That way if they start messing up you can always bring him in and hopefully get some outs or innings out of them before that.
It's worked all season so I shouldn't complain but I got extremely nervous about doing the defensive substitutions late because once the game got tied we had no Kevin Keyes or Russell Moldenhauer in extra innings. Seeing two guys bat with all that pressure and batting .174 and .200 compared to the crazy numbers LSU's hitters' have was tough.
Oh well- tough way to lose the first game and now our pitching is hamstrung to make the climb back that much harder. Gotta pray for Taylor Jungmann to come back after that tough 6 pitch 6 balls performance last night and pitch his usual good game when he normally just rolls with the pressure.
Dammit ZZ- congrats but I ain't givin' up despite how it looks right now.
