ORU at Wichita State

Recommended Posts

theeagleman5

Good guys up in Wichita tonight for a game with the struggling Shockers.....WSU is 22-25 this season and just dropped 2 of 3 at Dallas Baptist.....but the Shockers are tough at home with 18 (only 6 losses) of their wins coming at Eck Stadium......so this should be a tough one tonight and ORU needs a win after dropping 2 of 3 at NSDU.....honestly, any slim shot ORU had of gaining a 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament was lost last weekend by dropping a pair to a team with an RPI of 270.....we also can't just assume that all we have to do is show up at JLJ in two weeks and win the Summit Tournament....NDSU has proven that they can give us trouble.....ORU will still have to bring the A game in order to make the NCAAs.....:eagles:

not to beat up on the guy any further (he's had a rough year), but he has no business as the set up man.

he should only see the mound in mop up duty...not with games on the line.

Bullpen fails to hold a late lead again twice....a disturbing trend after great starting pitching and some clutch hitting....a very tough 7-6 loss...:|

I got to watch the game on ESPN3, and I put the blame for this loss on the staff.  Why pitch both Hinson and Howe.  Each gave up runs that put the Shockers back in the game.  Then with a guy on 1st and no outs in the 9th, we bunt and end up with an out and a runner still on first.  We made some really funky coaching decisions that cost us the game.

Losing 3 of 4 against two teams that aren't that good at this point in the season is a real concern....maybe the past 4 days is just a glitch....but concerns about our bullpen are real....Bryce Howe isn't getting anybody out and Stout seems to have lost his gleam....our bats are still hot but we need to turn things around quickly in the final 7 games....ORU has to play better baseball this weekend at JLJ vs. Omaha.....:worried:

Seriously. He would be more suited for a long reliever type role. Not as a setup man and definitely not with runners on.
