Is this Indiana’s regular Friday guy? His numbers don’t seem that great for an ace of the best staff in the league.

I believe they messed up the rotation a couple weeks back in a pod when they started their Friday guy on a Sunday and now they are stuck on that rotation.

I'm not arguing with you, but it's pretty messed up if they couldn't fix their rotation when there aren't any non-conference games to deal with.

Yeah it’s a very weird deal that didn’t make sense to me either. Also why it is important to get the win tonight since we don’t have favorable pitching matchups the rest of the weekend.

Top of the lineup was up and down but that’s why it’s nice to have talent in the middle and end of the lineup. Povich didn’t have his best stuff but Frank and Bunz helped bridge that gap to Schwellenbach to close out the win. I’ll take it. We will have a pitching disadvantage here on out to finish this pod.

We go 3-1 in the pod and 2 of 3 from Michigan. Won't matter, Michigan and Indiana are fighting for 2nd place runner up. Maryland more than likely will take 2 of 3 from Indiana next weekend at College Park. We have total control over the ending as Michigan and Indiana don't have any control over it. There isn't a team in this conferfence that is anywhere in our league. You think we're good this year? Just wait till next year, might just make this year look like childs play.

Outstanding outing by Koty Frank to settle Indiana's bats. Big performance for 2 innings to allow our back-end to finish it off. I feel for Povich, it seemed like Indiana was all over his FB when they weren't 2 weeks ago and coach Christy didnt adjust. It looked like his CB & CH were on & for whatever reason we kept on going back to his FB. But coach did with Bunz, not sure I've seen that many secondary pitches from Bunz.

Gonna need Hallmark down the stretch. He's in a serious funk. Awesome to see Brice getting after it, Max continuing his hot streak & Griff get that double early. Luke has really settled since the Iowa series, what a season he's had. His change with patience is the most notable difference.

Two big calls against Schwelly & Griff. This conference has some of the most horseshit umpires. They're worse than Omaha metro umpires during the spring high school season.

On to game 1 Saturday!

We played that game like a boss. Like the boss. At no time were we sucking air. Got the lead, never gave it up. The bullpen... five innings, 1 run, 1 walk, 8 strike outs. Damn! Two home runs, eh? No errors, of course.

Bigtime win. A win like a conference leader wins. Wait... we are a conference leader. Boom!
