Say Hey, Baseball has gotten underway. Check it out here if you haven’t made the trip to the Doak already. It’s a double-dip and it started around high noon. Did I mention that it’s against the pesky Mountain folk of Boone (they probably like these thick, peat smellin’, dreary days being from the highlands and all)?
Avent should give the ball to Surkamp in the first game. He is such a mirror opposite of Brackman that is nearly impossible to think they were teammates at the same HS in Cincy. He is flawlessly under control with his pitches and mechanics nearly always. That not only bodes well for pitch count but also keeps the defense sharp (as opposed to K’s, which are for pretty boys and facist according to Crash Davis). Also his sound mechanics have made him incredibly durable, another sharp contradiction to our last ace thats now trying to earn his pinstripes (God save him!).
In the second Ole’ Elliot will probably turn to Eryk McConnell , which could get interesting considering we would like to see our starter go more then a few innings.
Update, Pack splits against ASU 8-1 & 5-7
Thought we had ’em in the night cap, bottom 8 with the sacks full and Poulk at the plate. Credit to the App pitcher for gutting it out. One bright spot in the game was the 3.1 shut down innings by Jim Gilheeny.
Sunday’s rubber match is set for 1:30 at the Doak @ Dail. Get there if you can, it sounded over the airwaves like there were alot cobb pipe smokin’ weido’s that needed to be offset. Our starter is true frosh name of Buchanon. I was going to link his bio here but won’tGO.Pack was at it’s old tricks again.
