Post @ UTSA/Vs. UIW
Double mid-week action this week as we play UTSA in San Antonio Tuesday and Incarnate Word Wednesday in San Marcos. We announced Lewis as the starter vs. UTSA which is a bit surprising to me. Figured we'd see Engle against the roadrunners and Lewis against UIW. Assuming Engle starts vs the Cardinals tomorow though it's listed as TBA.

Klosterboer seems to have worked his way into the discussion at DH vs righties thanks to Coffey's struggles. Interested to see how he performs. Getting his 2nd straight start at DH today.

Also, this is the 5th straight game we haven't seen Almendarez in the lineup after making 14 straight starts to begin the year.

Anyone know is there's an injury or disciplinary issue with him or if he just got benched?

3 runs for UTSA in the 1st makes it 3-0.

Lewis struggled with his control as usual walking two and the defense was unable to make plays on two ground balls including a 2-run 2-base error on Hubbard.

UTSA hits a 1-out triple then Huber throws it into left field two pitches later on a botched pick-off attempt to make it 4-0 through 2 innings. We look really sloppy so far.

Why the hell does B. Lewis keep getting chances? Just let one of the freshmen start instead of just giving the game away.

I expected him to get a chance tomorrow vs. UIW but I don't really get why we didn't start the guy who beat them just a week ago tonight. I really thought Engle going tonight was a no brainer.

And that does it for Lewis after a 4-pitch walk to start the 3rd. Bosse to relieve. That's just what we needed in this 5 game week. A 2 inning start...

I would love to hear why we decided to go with Lewis over Engle tonight. Maybe we think UIW is the better team?

We scrape one back in the top of the 4th to make it 4-1 though we still don't have a hit tonight.

Yep. The utsa starting pitcher came down with B. Lewisitus but they pulled him quickly and only allowed the single run.

We load the bases with no outs in the 5th but only scrape out one more run. Hubbard HDP to end the inning.

4-2 UTSA going to bottom 5th.

The sacks get those two runs back in the 5th and it's 6-2 heading to the 6th.

Roadrunners add an insurance run in the bottom of the 8th to make it 7-2 heading to the 9th.

Bobcats need 5 to keep the game going.

Unbeaten streak ends at 11 games as TXST loses to UTSA 7-2.

All around terrible game. I really question the decision to start Lewis over Engle tonight and Lewis struggled for the 3rd time in 4 starts this year and only lasted 2 innings, putting a lot of pressure on a bullpen that has to play again tomorrow night before a huge series this upcoming weekend. Defense was sloppy allowing 3 runs to score on errors. Offense went 1/15 with runners on base and were mostly dominated by a johnny allstaff approach from a 7-10 team. Just an all around awful game for TXST to end a great streak.

We better not lose to UIW tomorrow after not throwing Engle tonight....
