ORU at Fort Wayne

Recommended Posts

theeagleman5

Final series of the regular season gets underway in a few minutes in Fort Wayne....3 afternoon contests and TheEagleman figures that Coach Folmar will give the regular pitching starters each a few innings work but not blow out their arms with probably no more than 5 frames each if not less....so the bullpen should all see some action against the woeful Mastodons who are 10-35 on the season.....I would also think that some of the bench players will get in a few innings since these games mean nothing in the standings or even in NCAA seeding....should be a nice weekend to get everyone ready for post season and let some of the younger guys get a few at bats....GO BLUE!!!...:eagles:

It's a pitchers duel in Fort Wayne today.....ORU up 2-1 in the 7th....Good Guys got a pair early but the Mastodons just scored in the home 6th.....:eagles:

FAST game!

ORU drops it in the 9th.......FW plates 2 on a couple errors......rare blown save for Stout

Oh well, always a few of these in any baseball season.  Good guys need to shake it off and come back to win the series.

Two errors in the bottom of the 9th and the Mastsdons score 2 runs to beat ORU, 3 to 2. Ouch...

How can we only score TWO runs vs. Fort Wayne pitching????....that's not acceptable.....makes you wonder how ORU will fare against really good pitching in the NCAA Tournament.....this doesn't bode well.....:|

Looks like ORU has come out motivated to score runs this afternoon....it's 6-0 thru 3 innings with the big hit a bases clearing double by Nick Roark in the 2nd....Josh McMinn on the mound for the Good Guys....interesting that Folmar went with Ausua and McGregor in the opener yesterday....sounds like Miguel could be the starter next Wednesday in the Summit Tournament opener....:nerd:

:grin:....likely not but maybe Coach Folmar lit a fire under this squad because ORU run ruled Fort Wayne, 14-0 today....two hit pitching by McMinn and the bullpen and six Golden Eagles had multiple hit games led by Heneon with 3...that's more of what Th eEagleman expected this weekend...:tb-blue:

Not to be Debbie Downer (since that's OT's role :rolleyes:), but along with the 14 runs were 14 LOBs in 7 innings.  Although it was a run-rule shortened blow-out, if we were playing well, it would have been even worse.

No doubt this ORU baseball team isn't the best squad that we have had in the past 10-15 years....doubtful that these guys would make it out of a regional....just not enough clutch hitting and our pitching is decent but not outstanding.....ORU up 4-1 over Fort Wayne today as we head to the 9th inning....Henson has a 2 run HR...a combo of four ORU pitchers has given up just 2 hits.....:eagles:.:eagles:

ORU got the series win at Fort Wayne yesterday with a 6-1 victory.....the Good Guys finish the regular season at 35-18 (24-6) and will open up the Summit Playoffs next Wed. night at JLJ vs. South Dakota State.....WIU and NDSU will play in the opening game earlier in the day.....GO BLUE!!!...:eagles:
