SERIES THREAD: FAU vs. FGCU - February 23 & March 5, 7 & 30, 2021

Post

Fau has got a team full of hitters. We just need to find some young arms that commit and don't sign after the draft. Finding arms is EASILY the most difficult thing to do in college baseball.

This game should end about midnight.

Man, I wish we had a better camera angle on the stream, but Victor Castillo just made a BEAUTIFUL game saving catch in left. He has taken full advantage of his opportunity today.

What to see how baseball stats are misleading ? Fgcu scored 29 runs in four games vs  FAU.  Their record, one win and three losses. Gotta love college baseball.

The FAU Baseball team was down 8-0 in the second inning, but they certainly weren't out. Backed by a seven-run fourth inning and a grand slam by freshman outfielder Victor Castillo, the Owls fought their way back into the ballgame and took the victory right from the grasp of the FGCU Eagles, winning 13-11.

The Rundown
  • Simply put, this comeback doesn't happen without the contributions of freshman outfielder Victor Castillo. He came through for the Owls when they needed him the most, hitting a crucial grand slam to give them a 9-8 lead. He finished the game 1-4 with 5 RBIs.
  • Despite a subpar performance on the mound, giving up 5 runs, 3 hits, and 2 home runs in one inning, pitcher/designated hitter Mitchell Hartigan bounced back from that performance with his performance at the plate. He was 3-for-5 with 3 RBIs.
  • Third baseman B.J. Murray also headlined the Owls' bats, hitting 3-5 with two RBIs.
  • Pitcher Braden Ostrander is emerging as FAU's new closer. He pitched two scoreless innings to close out the game, only allowing one hit.
  • Pitcher Dylan O'Connell earned the win for the Owls, pitching two innings of scoreless ball without giving up a single hit, only walking two batters.
  • The Owls win the season series with the FGCU Eagles 3-1, despite only holding a 30-29 advantage in runs scored in the four game series.

FAU will return to action on Friday, April 2, when they travel to Charlotte to start a four-game weekend set against the 49ers. First pitch will be at 6:00 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on C-USA TV.
