Never mind. Lol.
After a statement win on Wednesday against No. 6 Florida, the 21st ranked FAU Owls had a dud of a game, falling 8-0 to the Florida Gulf Coast University Eagles. The Owls were held to just two hits in today's ballgame.
- Jackson Spiller had a disappointing start. He allowed eight hits and three earned runs, only striking out two batters.
- B.J. Murray and Nolan Schanuel were the only two Owls with hits in today's ballgame. Schanuel went 1-3 with a walk, while Murray was 1-4.
- Thomas Haggerty was the lone Owls pitcher to not have an earned run on his score line. He pitched a clean ninth inning and struck out a batter.
- Sam Low made the best play of the game, making a diving play at second and throwing out the baserunner at first with a laser.
- Jacob Josey and Bobby Morgensen are still day-to-day with their respective injuries. Joesey threw to0day, but there's no time table for his return.
"It's not disappointing, it's baseball. Let's give credit where credit is due, [FGCU Starter Mason Studstill] really threw well against a good offensive team. I think our guys pressed a bit and we've gotta pitch better. But I'm not disappointed." -head coach John McCormack.
The Owls will be back in action tomorrow night at 5pm in Fort Myers for game two of the series. The game will be broadcast on FGCU's YouTube channel.
