Baseball has an awakening

The bats came alive on Sunday and in a big way. Destroying Wagner by a combined score of 43 - 4. Yes, you read that right. It was a good day for us at the plate and hopefully it will continue with more base hits, but I wouldn't count on the homerun barrage we got to see today. That was truly impressive.

Sunday's combined totals for each player are below, soak it in, we won't get many more like this:

Starters --

Trea Turner - SS: 4 of 8; 7 RBIs, 6 runs, 1 BB... 1 HR and 1 SB

Brett Williams - CF: 7 of 9; 10 RBIs, 5 runs, 2 BB... 3 doubles, 3 HRs (one of which was a GS), 2 SBs

Jake Fincher - RF: 2 of 10; 1 RBI, 3 runs, 1 BB... 1 double, 1 SB

Brett Austin - C: 1 of 8; 3 RBIs, 1 run, 1 BB... 1 double

Tarran Senay - 1B: 2 of 7; 1 RBI, 4 runs, 2 BB... 1 double, 1 HR

Sam Morgan - 2B: 7 of 10; 6 RBIs, 6 runs...... 3 doubles, 2 HRs

Bryan Adametz - DH/LF: 4 of 7; 3 RBIs, 4 runs... 1 double

Brian Taylor - LF/DH: 1 of 8; 2 RBIs, 4 runs... 1 double

Jake Armstrong - 3B: 2 of 6; 1 RBI, 5 runs... 1 double

Benchers --

Will Nance: 0 for 2; 2 runs

Grant Clyde: 3 for 3; 7 RBIs, 2 runs... 2 HRs (one of which was a GS)

Chance Shepard: 0 for 1

Matt Bergquist: 1 for 2; 1 run

John Mangum: 0 for 1; 1 RBI

9 HRs (2 GS) and 12 doubles... not too bad. We were popping the hits today and the doubles were great to see. That should be our strong point for the season.

Pitchers --

Logan Jernigan - got the win in game one

5 IP; 5 H, 1 BB, 4 SOs, 82 pitches

Ryan Wilkins - 3 IP; 1 H, 3 SOs, 28 pitches

Dillon Frye - 1 IP; 1 H, 1 SO, 14 pitches

Josh Easley - started game two

4 IP; 2 H, 4 runs allowed (gave up a GS), 1 walk, 4 SOs, 68 pitches

Travis Orwig - got the win in game two

1 IP; 19 pitches

Andrew Woeck - 2 IP; 1 H, 2 BBs, 1 SO, 37 pitches

DJ Thomas - 1 IP; 1 H, 14 pitches

Chris Overman - 1 IP; 1 H, 1 SO, 11 pitches

Not really sure why Easley got the start in the second game compared to Ethan Ogburn or Anthony T, but oh well. Wagner has a RPI of 258 out of 297, so yea they are bad... really bad. Things get tougher with a good New Mexico St (RPI #40) and Coastal Carolina (RPI #41) due up next week. With that in mind, my assumption is that Avent was saving Ogburn for Tuesday's start and Stone will be likely to go in Wednesday's. We may rest Rodon until Sunday's game against Coastal Carolina as UMBC (RPI #290) and Florida Atlantic (RPI #82) may get Ant T or Keglovitz and Jernigan.

All in all 5 - 1 isn't a bad start to the season with our one loss coming to the RPI #33 team in App St.

How bad was Wagner-----

Hitting - game one - 7 of 33; 1 BB, 8 SOs... game two - 5 of 33: 4 RBIs, 4 runs, 3 BBs, 6 SOs

Pitching - game one - 18 ERs (all earned); 17 Hs, 7 BBs, 3 SOs, 3 HBPs, 183 pitches...
