Baseball Roudup

It's been a strange season for the Owl's baseball team, hard to get a grasp of what this team is capable of.  The present line-up features plenty of fire power and the pitching have been spotty at best.  Hard to explain how you can play some of the toughest team around the nation like a team that belongs in a regional and faltered against weaker competition and resemble one that should stay home for post season play.

With a win over cross town rival, Florida International on Saturday, the Owl's solidified the #4 seed in the Sun-Belt Tournament that starts on Wednesday and will play Western Kentucky; a series the Owls won two games to one.

One thing is certain, if the Owls want to go deep in the Championship series, the bullpen will have to do a better job and give the starter a lift.

The first round pairing for the Sun-Belt Tournament:

10:00am Game 1: #3 Troy vs  #6 Louisiana-Lafayette
1:30pm Game 2: #2 New Orleans vs #7 South Alabama
5:00pm Game 3: #4 FAU vs #5 Western Kentucky
8:30pm Game 4: #1 Louisiana-Monroe vs  #8 Middle Tennessee


The Hottest team going into the tournament appears to be New Orleans, one of the match-up to watch in the first round will be Game 1, Lafayette struggled all season much like the Owls, but have found some fight as of late and should give the Trojans a tough test on Wednesday.

The Owls only lost two conference series during conference play, getting swept against the top two teams in the tournament which proved to be very tough series.  Confidence might not be at the highest as far as pitching goes, but I am hoping that the Owls are looking to give Coach Cooney a nice send-off present, by taking the Tournament Championship.
