Couldn't be happier about this weekend's series, winning games 1 and 3 from the Aggies, when they were ranked and their pitching looked unbeatable (recaps for game 1, game 2 and game 3). Both LAJ's George Watson and DT's Mike Graham have stories after Sunday afternoon's series clinching win. I'm not going to try and recap the pitching and hitting from all three games, but it was nice to see Morgan get the win on Sunday, especially considering his struggles, and this young offense is starting to hit the cover off of the ball, despite the loss of Willie Rueda to a hamstring injury again. A really good effort by the entire team.
Head Coach Dan Spencer sounds happy about the effort this weekend:
"You can’t say enough about the way they showed up," head coach Dan Spencer said. "We’re getting more comfortable and they’re believing they can win. They’re playing for the name on their chest and not worrying about the other name in the dugout."
And sophomore catcher Jeremy Mayo on how they played on Sunday:
"We just needed to jump out early and get a lead," said Tech catcher Jeremy Mayo, who now leads the Big 12 in home runs with seven. "We came out hard (Sunday) and played hard and did what we know we can do."
