  1. Also, don't know if anyone followed the chat on youtube, but USF doesn't have a monopoly on dysfunctional fanbase relations. It was more entertaining than the game at times.
  2. Well, glad this series is over. if there is a turnaround in this team, its gotta happen next weekend. Otherwise, just play the freshman and start working towards the 2021 season.
  3. Back to back good Sundays for Yager. Maybe he should start them.
  4. lol It was stated in hindsight. With 5ER in his last three innings, I had kinda questioned it but was hoping CCBM knew something I didn't.
  5. burns is really struggling. Not sure if he the guy to start today.
  6. Gotta give the boys some credit. They haven’t packed it in. Still battling.
  7. The top of ECU’s order is quite impressive. As dangerous as anyone in the country.
  8. oracle preview Bulls look for consistency against No. 14 ECU in second week of AAC play By Nolan Brown, Correspondent After dropping its first series of AAC play against Cincinnati, USF baseball (12-11, 1-2) will look to improve its consistency at the plate and on the mound as it heads into a home weekend series against No. 14 ECU (18-6, 3-0). The top two hitters for USF are Kyle Phillips, batting .330, and Joe Genord, batting .320. Phillips was the offensive silver-lining in the series against Cincinnati and went 4-for-13 with three RBIs. Genord was less effective at the plate and went 1-for-9 with one RBI. USF coach Billy Mohl is looking for more consistency in hitting for the team as a whole and wants the players to make more contact with the ball. “[ECU] plays a good game of baseball, so we just have to come out, can’t make mental mistakes and our guys have to show up and get the bats going a little bit,” Mohl said. USF’s pitching will also look to improve after the weekend series loss against Cincinnati. Pitching started off strong for the Bulls in game one last weekend with junior Collin Sullivan recording a career-high 11 strikeouts, however, pitching stuttered throughout the rest of the weekend as the Bulls gave up 20 hits in the final two games of the series. “Sullivan and Alec Wisely have gone out every weekend giving us six or seven innings each time and obviously Nelson [Alvarez] has been good for us out of the pen,” Mohl said. “We just need some other guys to step up and show a little more consistency.” The Pirates are on a six-game win streak and currently lead the AAC standings thanks to their sweep against UCF last weekend in which the Pirates scored 26 runs in the series. Junior first baseman Spencer Brickhouse went 6-for-12, hitting two home runs with eight RBIs in the series and was named AAC player of the week. ECU, who is the conference favorite, could prove to be a difficult test for USF, given the Pirates’ dominant start to conference play. “We just have to play great baseball, got to stay the course and stay positive,” Mohl said. ECU boasts some of the best hitters in the AAC, with top-ranked in individual conference statistics sophomore outfielder Alec Burleson hitting .402 with 10 doubles. Brickhouse ranks third in individual statistics with a batting average of .397 and has five home runs this season. USF won the series 2-1 against ECU last season and Genord’s two-run homer in the seventh inning of game two. His bat flip celebration caused a conflict with the ECU dugout in a bench-clearing affair. Genord’s bat flip sparked conversation of a brewing rivalry between the Bulls and the Pirates, however, Mohl played down the speculation. “It was an intense game that day,” Mohl said. “We’ve always played good games with those guys, but it’s just another game for us.” USF will begin its second series of AAC play against ECU at the USF Baseball Stadium on Friday at 7:00 p.m.

They are coming off a clean sweep of UCF in Greenville, where apparently the trash cans were put in harm's way.
  10. CBM sums it up the pitching issues pretty good here. “Alec Wisely and Collin Sullivan have been really good for us,” Mohl said. “Wisely’s first outing of the year was a bit shaky but he has gotten better ever since, going seven innings in his last two starts.” (Worth noting, had he not gone out for the seventh against UC, Wisley would have had 6.0 IP with no runs.) “The third guy is Ben Koff,” Mohl said. “He has been dealing with a nagging injury. He is our Sunday guy. Baron Stuart has been out for a little bit with a pinched nerve in his elbow, but we are expecting to have him back in the next week or two.” Getting both Koff and Stuart back from injuries could be the solution to what Mohl says is one of the problems with his starting rotation. “Midweek is kind of a black hole for us right now,” Mohl said. “We are trying to find someone.” Nothing to do with pitching but i liked the quote, “This whole league the past few years, the top-four teams have been separated by a 1.5 games,” Mohl said. “ It’s tough up and down … we have shown we have the ability to go up against anybody.” http://www.usforacle.com/news/view.php/1038014/Mohl-looks-for-consistency-as-conference
  11. They aren't as good this year as they have been in the past. They lost 4 four or so pitchers to the draft (and we thought we lost a lot). This was just the second week in a row that the midweek starter dug us in a hole that we couldn't get out of.
  12. I think that stance has been noted at this point. Feel free to ignore the team the rest of the season, but I'm gonna keep posting and looking at the bright side. This team can still steal some series this season. Mid-weeks are tough due to the pitching depth after the injuries. We also have this knack for playing awkward lineups on midweeks. Hoping Phillips isn't hurt after he left tonight.
  13. Bulls fall 10-9 thanks to a collapse in the second inning that gave up 7 runs. We don't have anyone to start midweek games. I'm guessing Stuart is hurt now.
  14. Genord hits his second home run of the game. 7-6, The second was crushed.
  15. Doudican loses the strike zone in the 2nd and loads the bases on 2 walks and a double the Zech tried to make a play on and let it get behind him. Chatfield drops a line drive, add a couple of hits and the game is tied at 5
  16. Phillips legged out an infield hit and was pulled for Chatfield. Hopefully, that is a precautionary move.
  17. I won't say that the pitching has been stellar so far. It definitely has some holes that people need to step up into, but as the article for this week's midweek stated, we are tied for second in the league for ERA. Only tree teams are below a 4. There isn't really anyone who has great pitching outside of ECU, who is the clear cut cream of the crop for the AAC.
