Post Mid-week Game Thread - @ Baylor/Vs. UTSA
Another mid-week with multiple games as the rained out February game vs. Baylor is set to be made up Monday night in Waco before a game with UTSA in San Marcos on Tuesday night.

The Fraze injury is going to make this a tough two-game stretch on the pitching staff. With usual #4 starter Wes Engle throwing game three of the Little Rock series I'd expect Lewis to get the start at Baylor then a relief pitcher to get their first start of the season vs. UTSA. We haven't officially announced a starter for either game.

First pitch set for 6:35 tonight in Waco.

You know what you get with Lewis. Start Cam Baird or Theriot tonight and they are both rested and ready to go for the weekend series.

Pagano to start at Baylor and Lewis vs. UTSA.

First start of the season for Pagano though he made 3 last year.

Newman goes deep in the 2nd for a 2-run homer.

2-0 TXST. Still batting in the 2nd.

Good to see Newman go deep given his struggles. Hopefully a slumpbuster.

Huber follows Nemans homer with a double but he's stranded at 3rd.

2-0 bobcats. Middle 2nd.

Scott with an RBI single in the 5th.

All 5 RBI have come from the 7,8,9 hitters. Good production from the bottom of the lineup.

5-0 TXST. Mid 5th.

Paganos night is done through 4 complete innings.

0 runs on 1 hit with 3 strikeouts and 2 walks.
I'm a bit surprised we don't roll with Pagano a bit longer to he honest, but Bosse enters to start the 5th.

Good outing for Pagano.

Happy for Pagano. . . . . His last outing wasn't too bad either. Hope he's turned a corner, developmentally.

Scott gets another RBI on a double in the 7th. Nearly his first career homer but it went off the wall.

6-0 TXST. Middle 7th.

Baylor leads off the bottom of the 7th with a solo homer but Bosse retires the next 3 batters.

6-1 TXST through 7.

Theriot pitches a clean 8th and 9th and TXST takes down Baylor 6-1 in Waco.

Pagano gets the win. Nice start from him and Bosse/Theriot both threw well. Offense hit really well with 13 hits. 4/5 night for Hubbard and Newman had easily his best game of the year. Hopefully a sign of a turnaround for him.

Solid win over a top 50 RPI team on the road.

Edit: Bosse is actually credited with the win as Pagano only threw four innings.

Follow that nice win at Baylor up with a bad loss to UTSA. Cats lose 5-3. Tough to play 5 games in a 6 day stretch though with your ace down though.

What causes batters to not drive in runners in scoring position or pitcher walking in runs?

I'd like to see a more consistent lineup. We've got guys that have probably hit in 6 or 7 spots in the lineup up to this point. Quit trying to go with the hot hand and just set a lineup and stick to it.

Almendarez is batting lead off now after hitting 9th all year. And I bet he'll be back to 9th soon.
Ortega has led off, hit 2nd, hit 3rd.
Newman has rotated all season from the top of the order to the bottom.
Scheible has been all over the place. Lead off, 2 hole, 3 hole, cleanup, was 6 hole or something a few days ago.

More consistency may help with constantly stranding a ton of runners.

I'm not gonna bitch about the pitching. Up to this point they've exceeded my expectations. The offense has to get better.
