Lopes gets them 1,,2,3 In the ninth We win 7-4 and take the series, 3-1 Wonder when was the last time we took a good weather team in a series ? Day off tomorrow, then on to 4 at Cal Riverside Hope the bats stay hot, 13 hits tonight. we have some gaudy OPS numbers
Going back to 2013, that is the only time they have won a series against a non-New England team. They did split with Mississippi State in 2014. Overall, they also won a series from Yale in 2013, 2014 and 2016. So for this team to go on the road and take a series against an OOC opponent is something that doesn't happen often. I am thinking UC Riverside may be a little tougher test as they are coming off a good year and are projected to finish 4th in the Big West (D1baseball.com). One common opponent with Bakersfield, Loyola Marymount, which Riverside beat 3-2 and Bakersfield lost 7-1. Can't take a lot from that as baseball is a funny game and can change day to day. Hope the non-bunting continues.
4 games starting tonight against Cal - Riverside (6-6) - they play in a much tougher conference than Bakersfield - the Big West which features perennial power Cal - Fullerton - looks like the game tonight will be available for viewing bigwest.org/watch/default.aspx?Live=2858&path=uc_riverside
