Post Game Thread - @ UTSA
Trying to break an 8 game losing streak. Not a typo.

Schedule/Probable Pitching Matchup:
Tuesday - 6pm:
#13 LHP Brandon Lewis (0-1, 25.20 ERA) (not a typo) vs. #7 RHP Chance Kirby (1-2, 6.06 ERA)

I guess Wes Engle has been demoted to the bullpen. From the #2 starter to the bullpen in a matter of two weeks. Lewis will get his 3rd start of the year. In his first he threw a season high 1.1 innings (not a typo) taking a loss against Purdue giving up 5 earned runs on 4 hits and 2 walks. He made his 2nd start on April 5th against UTRGV, getting a no decision after going 1 inning, giving up 4 runs on 4 hits and 3 walks. For the season he has a 25.2 ERA in 5 innings pitched over 6 appearances. He's given up 14 earned runs in those 5 innings, walking 10 while striking out just 3, and allowing a whopping .542 batting average. Obviously he is having a horrendous season after being pegged as a weekend starter in the preseason.

Season has quickly turned into a bit of running sarcasm.

The good news is our SOS (strength of schedule) has decreased from 200+ (out of 299 total D1 teams) in the last few weeks to 150 by playing real teams. Bad news is there is an inverse relationship to our RPI, going from 76 in week 7 to 177 today (not a typo either). Funny how that works. Been outscored 20-50 during this little 8 game slide

Was hoping to maybe get well against Ga State and maybe even UTA at home and maybe scare .500 but then UTA goes and sweeps ULL and looks like they'll have a good chance at winning the west division of the sunbelt.

Where's Purdue, Alabama A&M, Richmond, UTRGV, Prairie View App State and ULM when u need 'em?

The 3 below him have pitched a combined 1.1 innings. Lewis probably has the worst overall pitching stats in the entire conference. Hopefully that's no longer the case after tonight. Hopefully....

Newman homer in the top of the 1st makes it 2-0 TXST. Good start. We may need 10 to win it though.

Sherley knocks in Hubbard to tack on another. 3-0 middle 1st.

Scheible single scores Paul in the 6th to close the gap to 6-5.

Unfortunately Ortega and Newman can't come up with a way to drive in Rodriguez from 3rd with 1 out.

6-5 UTSA middle 6th.

I still just can't understand how B. Lewis pitched the way he did his freshman year and now being one of the worst pitchers in the Sunbelt this year. This is so frustrating. Issues getting runners in from 3rd with less than 2 outs has been a problem lately as well. I don't know if our pathetic pitching is taking its toll on the rest of the team or what. Of course the injuries don't help either.

Engle walks first 2 batters. I just don't get why they keep putting him on the mound. If you can't throw strikes ...............
