Although I played all the major sports, I was going to play college baseball at Loyola until ruining my arm in football
I knew all the Loyola players and coaches very well and when they needed to get to Clark field, I went on the bus from campus to show them the way
Jesuit has always been one of the top baseball schools in the South and has won a bunch of state regional and American Legion World Titles
Suicide squeeze is Painless!!! Like the Mash song!!!
Izzy gets that bunt down 8 times out of 10. I don't hate the call only because it was Jam running and that meant it DID NOT even have to be a great bunt. Literally any fair ball bunt would've won the game. Hell, Jam was practically crossing the plate before Izzy even left the batters box. ____, maybe we should've just stole home, lol.
Sun Belt currently 72-67. Better than a couple weeks ago but not as good as last year. Conference finished 148-125... So at this point (about half of all NC games played, conference should be about 12-13 games above 500 to match last year's pace.
Suicide was the right call. That pitcher came in the 8th and had sat down everyone until Kennon got that single. I think it had been 8 players in a row. So the pitcher was stingy.
Yes, that was the play of the game. We lay that bunt down and it is over. You're right he might have stolen home without the attempted bunt.
The reality is we were just a few plays away from a sweep, and a few plays away from getting swept.
However, for our purposes, the Sun Belt is 66-63 (.5116), with a .5098 OWP contribution to the Cajuns' RPI. This .5098 is low ... need to bring it up significantly.
Yes, as stated earlier, Saint Peter's is likely to really hurt. This team is the poster child for teams that you do not schedule.
I wish we used more slash hits in situations like that. Show bunt to draw the infield in and chip one right over their heads.
