    A lot to like in tonight's game (beyond 3-0)...
     
    1. That kind of win breathes confidence into the dugout. The guys can now look around with conviction and say, "those TCU pitchers were just hot at the right time". When you're 19 years old, there is a monumental difference between saying that and believing it.
     
    2. Good at bats tonight. The Horns looked aggressive at the plate and took good swings for the most part. Winning 3-0 against two solid pitchers is not representative of the good contact made by the Texas lineup. They didn't all fall (far from it), but Texas drove the ball well tonight.
     
    3. I was very pleased to see Skaugie pull French when they did. Typically those two will leave a starter in until he's out of gas. Tonight, they managed the rotation instead of letting the rotation manage. Well done, gents.
     
    4. I like it that Wheeland threw a lot of pitches on Friday night. That bodes well for Saturday & Sunday.

    Had tball practice tonight so I am a little late to the party. Before y'all start the "you play tball?" jokes please keep in mind this is my first year. We are all at the same skill level .
     
    Hooked 'em, French is back! What a game and only two pitchers have touched the ball. Huge win tonight for the Horns.
     
    Thanks for the updates joeywa & utbomb. See ya here tomorrow.

    Ok boys and girls, we have a rather large series facing us this weekend.  Conference-leading Oklahoma State is in town for three, starting tonight at 7 PM CST. 
     
    Texas is 2-games behind Ok. St. in the standings. 
     
    Ok. St. is ranked as follows:
    9-NCBWA
    14-Collegiate Baseball
    15-USA Today
    21-Perfect Game & Baseball America
     
     
    Ok St. is coming off of a 3-game series sweep of Kansas in Stillwater, and a Tuesday 15-8 loss to UR Oral Roberts.
     
     
    Probable Starting Pitchers
    Jr. RHP Jon Perrin (5-2, 2.11) vs. Jr. RHP Parker French (4-3, 2.27)
    Fr. RHP Tyler Buffett (2-1, 1.85) vs. Jr. LHP Dillon Peters (5-3, 2.70)
    TBA vs. Sr. RHP Nathan Thornhill (6-1, 0.97)
     
    Tonight's Ok St starter, Perrin, began the season in the pen, but was moved to Friday starter in mid-March.  He lost games against Baylor & TCU, but has won his last 3 starts, giving up one run in his last 21.1 innings.  Of note, he threw 130-pitches in a complete-game, 9K 6-hit shutout last Friday against Kansas.   I don't see that trend continuing tonight.  I see a letdown game in my crystal ball. 
     
    I'll put up the lineup card when it's available. 
     
    Another note: I'll be at my son's HS game which starts at 6PM CST.  I'll probably pick up with some PBP later on after the game.  I will be watching, but will only be posting from the mobile site.  
     
    Hook Em, and let's get after the pokes.  Get to this guy early, and I think we're in for a good night.

    Mine comes from back in my freshman year at UT. I was hanging out with a few buddies in my dorm room at a Moore-Hill between classes. We were discussing names we'd never name our kids. I said Joey. Well, that stuck for a bit as a nickname, then it morphed into joeywa because my first, last, middle name didn't fit on my UT Student ID. My middle name was shortened from Wayne to Wa, as thats all that would fit. Joey quickly became joeywa. I have friends from college still call me Joey or joeywa to this day. It's what I used on the old 360 boards, and have used it ever since.
     
    Oddly enough, many people think it's because I live in Washington, which is merely a coincidence.

    Nah; the hits are hiding.  The swings and the hard-hit balls are there.  Payton had a solid shot that was an at-em ball early.  Johnson just missed the fly out last inning.  We're hitting; just nothing much finding the holes.
