Lots of new faces in the lineup:

(1) 3B Schwellenbach
(4) RF Palensky
(6) 2B Chick
(8) DH Gomes

This weekend's Sunday starter Colby Gomes is sitting in the DH spot rather than Hagge.

Cam Chick opens the season at 2B instead of Henwood.

Good start. We need to go 3/4 this weekend.
While I would like to win 3 of 4 (or better) this weekend and last night was obviously a good start, I'm still taking the approach that being 4-7 or better after the first three weekends is my expectation and anything above is gravy. As I hope Erstad reminds the players today, every game starts 0-0 and there will be a new pitcher on the mound. Let's see how the young players handle a blowout win.

Luensmann hit a wall after a few innings, and we had no production in the middle innings.

Can't please everyone, right? :D

Agreed, I do feel it is possible though for this team. Oddly enough Chad still has a 0.00 ERA since all 5 of those runs were technically unearned. Laughing

Yeah, and we knew Chad would only go about 50-60 pitches, so it shouldn't be a shock that he hit the wall when he did.

I'm mostly trying to temper my expectations because I wouldn't be shocked if a few of the 7 games following this weekend (excluding Sam Houston State) were absolute massacres similar in what we did last night when the wheels fell off for UC-Riverside.

Understood. I think after this weekend we win maybe 1-2 games until our home opener. This early in the year I’m just wanting consistency with this team. I do like that we are playing tough competition even if it means a less than desirable record to start the year.

When the defense falls apart behind the pitcher the pitcher needs to gather himself together and stay on course. However, Chad, himself, started that cascade of errors so that got in his head too. All kind of unfortunate.

But then Riverside's bullpen saved our day. Or, are our bats really that good? We'll see but one thing seems sure - UCR's next three starters better be damn good b/c they used seven pitchers yesterday with three games to go. Ooof.
