This is getting ridiculous. Last night, the K-State Wildcats roughed up the Red Raiders, 12-4. AJ Ramos lasted only 1 inning, giving up 2 hits, 4 runs, 4 walks, and striking out none. Ramos walked the first 4 batters of the game, threw 32 pitches, and I think Spencer had seen enough after Ramos came out to the second inning and promptly gave up a double. I'd look for Spencer to replace Ramos as well next week, he's done giving guys these long leashes. The bullpen was equally as bad. Brian Cloud gave up 4 hits, 4 runs, all earned, walked 2 and struck out 1 in 3.0 innings. Lorenzo Roberts pitched 0.2 innings, giving up 1 hit, 1 run, walking none and striking out none. Robert Kilcrease pitched the final 4.1 frames and gave up 4 hits, 3 runs, all earned, walking 2 and striking out 5. After Kilcrease got out of the 5th inning, he was pretty good and threw strikes (50 strikes in 85 pitches).
The offense was pretty quiet again, as they came out and scored 4 in the 1st inning, but nothing after that. In fact, the Red Raiders had 6 of their 10 hits in the 1st inning. Willie Rueda and Joey Kenworthy continue to hit the ball at the top of the lineup, and Kieschnick, Richburg and Seefeld each had an RBI, but nothing past that 1st inning.
LAJ's George Watson has the recap of yesterday's game and you can read about how the team is still trying really hard. The Red Raiders did wear their throw-back uniforms, which I think is a great look and I love the leggings.
I asked this last year, but is the athletic department going to make those sweet-ass hats available. I'd buy one in a heart-beat.
