Quote of the Day: From Coach John McCormack on Ryan Garton
"Between his stuff, his heart and his competitive desire when he's on the mound I feel good about it.  I hope last weekend gave him the confidence that, hey I belong in that spot and I'm going to run with it the rest of the year.  He just wants to be out there and help the team out."

If they dont win this series the season could slip away from them in a hurry.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

If we don't win this series, that would be a cause for concern…UNO is 1-11 in conference play; which has come against the top and bottom ranked teams…

The Owls might be starting to find their stride…back-to-back doubles by Mee & Scheffler gives the Owls their first lead of the ball game - no outs in the 4th.
