Post @ #27 Coastal Carolina
Huuuuge series this weekend in Conway as the west division leading #30 Bobcats take on the east division leading #27 Chanticleers.

The schedule for TXST hasnt exactly been brutal for the bobcats up to this point. This will probably be the best team we've faced in a 3-game series so far. The Chants can absolutely mash and Spring Brooks Stadium is very hitter friendly (though temps are supposed to be down in Conway all weekend with a chance of rain on Sunday). The bobcats are 9-1 in Fraze and Reich starts. Tonights pitching matchup with Fraze vs. Jason Bilous should be a dandy.

Friday's game has been moved up to 4pm CST as temps in the 30s are expected tonight.

On the road, against a very good Coastal team (probably looking for a little payback for last year) 2 out of 3 would be phenomenal .. .

1 out of 3. . . might be more realistic . .

. . just don't get swept.

JMO, but the 4 games we played them last year may have been some of the best baseball played by the Bobcats all year.

Fuuuuuuuuuuuck....

Fraze scratched last minute due to some health concern. Reich to start tonight.

Newman also out tonight with some type of injury. Coffey to start at 1st.

Hopefully Fraze's issue is minor enough that he can go at some point in this series.

Poor timing to get sick.

Well, I guess IF we lose, we can invoke the "Conway Rule" and put an asterisk by this one . . .

B2nd, Reich worked himself out of a bases loaded jam, Still scoreless . .

T3rd, Bobcats load the bases, but can't capitalize . . .

I'm still not sure what he's talking about over there.

Cause the tournament format changed to single elimination?

Coastal leads off the b3 with a single, Huber throws it into center on a stolen base attempt moving the runner to 3rd, and another single scores the runner.

1-0 Coastal through 3.

1-out solo Homer for coastal in the 4th.

2-0 now through 4.

We're not doing a very good job of hitting with guys on base.

Nope. 9 left on through 5....
Offense has been frustrating relative to expectations all year up to this point.

Leadoff triple followed by a single makes it 3-0 Coastal in the bottom of the 5th. A walk followed by a swinging bunt moves the runners to 2nd and 3rd with one out.

Reich's day is done. The new fav bullpen lefty Seth Jordan will enter.

Sac fly makes it 4-0 after a walk.

1st and 3rd play makes it 5-0 as we can't get the runner at 2nd and the runner from 3rd scores.

Single makes it 6-0.

Strimeout mercilessly ends the inning.

6-0 Coastal through 5.

Unfortunately I think we're going to be hard-pressed to not get swept in this series unless Fraze is able to go.

Leigh will struggle to beat Coastals #2 guy and I have no clue what we will do in game 3. Either throw Engle on just 3-4 days rest, Lewis on 4-5 days rest, or try to johnny allstaff the thing with the bullpen. Either of those options likely ends in a lopsided loss.

Hopefully this Fraze injury is a very minor injury or illness.

Agreed . . . Realistically going into this series, I felt like 1 out of the 3 was a probable outcome . . . I just didn't want to get swept.

Now down by 7, got the rally cap on, furiously rubbing the rabbit's foot, and have pinned last week's Shamrock onto my lapel. . . .

. . another Coastal run, and I'll have to resort to VooDoo . . .

Coastal tacks on another in the 6th to make it 7-0.

Pagano in to pitch. It's had to have been a month since his last appearance.
