    ASU is going to finish with more walks than actual strikes thrown at this rate. Truly terrible so far.

    Well, I'll admit, I certainly didn't expect to win this series the way we were playing. If we don't blow it against Michigan next weekend, this probably puts us back in the regional discussion.

    Yeah, really impressive stuff by Fisher and Eddins, plus most of the bullpen guys (Mike Waldron's 2 home runs given up today a minor quibble.)

    Since I have to be negative about something :p at one point ASU's strikes-to-balls ratio was 51-49. They looked bad. Sure, Nebraska took advantage, but that's Purdue levels of bad pitching. Not sure what to expect from Michigan, they looked good until this weekend. Maybe Indiana is just that great :eek:

    In retrospect, we should have seen this coming with the Waldrons. They both fill up the zone and ASU looks to swing at just about everything.

    A starter who wobbled against a potent lineup but righted himself and posted a quality win. Three homers worth six runs. Quality bullpen work. Two out hits for late insurance.

    As satisfying a win as we’ve had in a while.

    I expect a series win vs. Michigan. I said it mid-season and I’ll say it again. The Wolverines have one really good win (UCLA) but have otherwise feasted on weak competition and struggled against good teams. Their performance at home in their showdown series with Indiana is the best example yet.

    If we had their schedule NU would have 40+ wins, that is some old school weak Big Ten scheduling.
