Vince Coletti was absolutely great today. Throwing strikes. Keeping the batters guessing. Great job. Best I've seen him.We take a series against a really good Roadrunner team. Lets take the Sunday's 11 am game and get the sweep.

FAU has an injured starting pitcher in Marman. SoMiss now has an injured pitcher. Nick Sandlin,  Possibly the best arm in C-USA missed his start at FIU. Reports from USM says it is just shoulder stiffness. We'll see . Baseball coaches are tight lipped.

Yeah, and Marman has "forearm tenderness" (for three weeks).

FAU baseball’s nine-game winning streak came to an end at the hands of UTSA Sunday as they to the Roadrunners 8-1. Even with the loss, the Owls will still lead Conference USA no matter the results of any other Sunday matchup.

“This has been a little bit of an issue, on Sundays,” said Head Coach John McCormack. “(UTSA is) a pretty good team, especially offensively, we just couldn’t overcome it. We’ve got to be better, and we’ve got to be better early. Today, I thought their guy pitched really well.”

The Roadrunners (18-16, 7-7) scored once in the first and twice more in the second, and held FAU without a hit until Eric Rivera’s clean single up the middle in the bottom of the fourth. A fifth-inning run and three more in the seventh provided a seven-run cushion for the visitors.

The Owls broke through with a run in the seventh to end the shutout attempt of UTSA starter Chance Kirby. Cody Wilson reached on a fielding error to lead off the inning, and with two outs, Tyler Frank’s double to the leftfield corner brought Wilson all the way around. Too, FAU (26-9, 11-4) had leadoff singles in each of their last two at-bats, but that one run was all they’d push across.

The Owls stay at home to host Bethune-Cookman Tuesday night at 6:30 PM.
