  1. I'm liking that we are getting a lot of these mid-week games on espn +
  2. ouch.....Does anyone know what the deal is with the trash can?
  3. Genord was also hitting over .360 before this weekend and Bodrato was over .300, if they get back on track we could see a big differnece in the offense. Zech has started to trend upwards but probably needs to hit at the bottom of the order.
  4. Well we didn't really have the pitching depth to take the losses. The key loss though was Hoffman, who looked good in his short season and probably would have established himself as the closer. King could have been good for us as well. His ERA might have been high but when you look at his numbers, he pitched in 23 games and over half his ER came in two of them . He also notched 30 strikeouts in 25 IP. All of this in his first season at D1. He would have at the very least been a veteran reliever for us. Offensively, although much weaker than last season, we are missing Dutka. He hit .299 with 17 2B and 26 RBI's. He would probably be a top of the order guy for us while also allowing for Sullivan to be a DH/ Sunday Catcher. Does all of this account for a lot, Not really, but we have lost 5 of 10 games by one run. We haven't really needed a lot, just an extra play or an extra quality IP here and there to change the whole outlook of this season.
  5. injuries have played a role in where we are today that didn't exist in the preseason.
  6. Sullivan attempted to dive under a tag after a high throw to first. The camera angle wasn't good but I thought there was a chance he missed him. Ump thought otherwise. Sullivan was not happy and needed to be restrained. We let this series get away from about the 6th inning on Saturday. Had them on the ropes and let them back in. A lot of well-placed ground ball hits and flares into no man's land combined with walks. We can't survive if the heart of the order goes cold. Tip you cap their starter today, he pitched the best game of his career based on his previous numbers and showed good command. We needed to be aggressive early to stay away from CB and never showed that.
  7. To some degree, you have to tip your cap to the Cincinnati starter. He has shown command of his fastball and curveball and we have been patient to a fault and just let him dominate the game.
  8. Strikeouts have been an issue but the heart has usually been able to get a few hits mixed in there. Genord and Bodrato have been completely silenced since Friday. We can't overcome that.
  9. IDK if its a philosophy thing or not, but we have just let this kid throw an outside fastball for a first-pitch strike almost at will. Then when ahead he has dominated with his CB. The top of our order outside of Phillips has been uncharacteristically awful in the last two days. No hits and 13 strikeouts.
  10. This kid is the best pitcher Cincinnati has thrown this weekend. His breaking ball has us guessing. Genord just swung and missed three times on one in four pitches.
  11. Bulls go three up, three down. We really let this one get away. Probably should pulled Wisely after the 6th, he started to lose it in the 5th and the start of the 7th is when they got back into the game. But hindsight is 20/20. series tied.
  12. Gonzales has a high throw to second which could have led to an inning ended DP, however, a two-out base hit gives Cincinnati the lead. Bulls need a run in the bottom of the 9th. Phillips, Genord, and Bodrato are due up. The best part of our lineup.
  13. Bearcats tie the game with a solo shot with one out in the ninth. Walks have allowed the Bearcats to get back into this game in the latter half.
  14. CBM, is playing matchups as he pulls Cruz for Lyle to face the upcoming lefties. Bearcats did manage to get a flare in a bad spot for a double and chopper that got just over Cruz's glove to bring in two runs. 5-4 Bulls. Still in the 7th.
  15. Wisley comes out for the 7th, gives up a solo shot and four-pitch walk. CBM goes to Ritchie Cruz.
  16. Bulls are being very aggressive on the base paths tonight. 5 Stolen bases tonight.
  17. Cincinnati pitcher leaves the game in the sixth due to injury. Add that to the fact that their projected starter warmed up and sat down due to injury. Bearcats are bringing in their third pitcher of the night. After using three last night and now the injuries, they might see a depth issue heading into Sunday.
  18. Wisley put himself in some trouble by walking two and hitting a batter. Bearcats can only plate one though. Heading to the bottom of the 5th, 4-1 Bulls.
  19. I really like the lineup we have been using for this series. Looks to be our strongest.
