SERIES THREAD: FAU @ WKU - May 7th - 9th, 2021

Post

Morgensen came through in the top of the seventh to give the Owls the lead, Sam Drumheller will likely return for his third inning to secure the win for FAU. I can't see what's happening, so I can't confirm that for you.

Mike Entenza is on the mound for the save, let's see if he can have himself a solid outing to close this game off.

Entenza's struggles continue, with him boasting a 10.98 ERA now on the season… with Ostrander and Spiller out, this may be a running problem for the Owls.

Will take the split, this series could have easily gotten away from us quickly AND aside from the last half inning, we were clearly the better ball club.

Hope we can get the remaining two games in and take the series.

Go Owls!

The Owls split the first two games of their series against the WKU Hilltoppers, winning Game 1 by the score of 6-3 while letting Game 2 slip away, falling 6-5 after a seventh-inning collapse by Mike Entenza. They had to play a doubleheader today as opposed to tomorrow due to weather coming into Bowling Green, KY and the rest of the series is TBD.

The Rundown
  • 2B Steven Loden absolutely mashed the baseball today, going 4-7 with 4 RBIs and a home run in the doubleheader.
  • FAU had a massive problem with leaving runners on base, leaving 18 on base over the course of the two games.
  • The Owls also struggled to hit with the bases loaded, hitting a combined 1-5 with the bags full.
  • FAU hit very well with runners in scoring position in game one, hitting .417. They struggled in game two, however, hitting just .250 with runners in scoring position.
  • Owl batters had an improvement in avoiding the strikeout in the second game compared to the first, striking out just three times in game two compared to seven times in game one.
  • FAU will be without Thomas Haggerty, Braden Ostrander, and Jackson Spiller for the remainder of the series per FAU SID Jonathan Fraysure. They did not make the trip to Bowling Green.

"We gotta do the best we can. Next guy up. We gotta get [Dylan O'Connell] to get some outs, we gotta get some seniors like Mike Entenza to be able to come through there, Adrien Reese is a guy who can jump in, you figure Visconti will be used at some point, so we just gotta piece it together." -Head Coach John McCormack on his plan moving forward with three bullpen pitchers out of the lineup.

The rest of the series' start times are TBD and will only be available on a radio broadcast on FAU's YouTube channel. We will keep you guys updated as we find out more about the remainder of the series.

Coach needs to figure this out. We MUST  win the series.

Looks like 2:00 PM is going to be off the table, and they should move the game to 6:00 PM, when the rain is over.

Tomorrow is not looking good at all.

We'll see what happens.

I guess two nine innings games will try and happen, but surprised by the start time:

The two sides are currently tied in the C-USA tournament race. A doubleheader sweep would work wonders in the quest to clinch a spot.
