Well shit- now we have a losing record! If we don't win the Citadel series, that will be our fate for the entire season too. In fact, we have to SWEEP The Citadel to finish with a winning record, and we haven't swept a three game series all season.

No need for expletives 94. Boys are doing fine. Could have easily taken 2 of 3 from Conference leaders. I like the way we are playing right now. We are a little thin on the mound but bats are coming around nicely and starting to hit the long ball as well. An overall winning record is nice but winning the tournament is all that counts.

Teams that are thin on the mound rarely win conference tournaments. I would rather call our pitching inconsistent. But I think we have starting pitchers who, if they get hot, can allow us to possibly make a run at it. Fingers crossed. And sorry for the expletive. That stemmed from frustration. The games we lost to Mercer were close...we could've won them. It was bitterly disappointing that we dropped them both Sunday.

Very surprising that we could not even scratch against the Bellhops. Scott had a fine outing. http://woffordterriers.com/news/2017/5/ ... tadel.aspx

With a break or two, we could win the tourney.

Mercy Rule invoked. 13-3 final. Embarrassing.

The season ended today with a loss to VMI, the same last place VMI team that took two of three from us during the season. Three losses to VMI should have never happened. But the most disappointing thing about this team is that it faded down the stretch, sputtered to the finish line, turning what looked to be a pretty good season into a disappointing losing season. Hopefully we can recover next year and take two steps forward to erase this step back.

Incoming freshman class has the chance to make early impact. Very strong class.

SoCon champ UNCG almost (should have) knocked off Clemson in first round NCAA tourney tonight. Davidson, in its first NCAA tourney appearance ever, knocked off #2 UNC.

Clemson beats UNCG in another close one to knock them out. AND Davidson beats UNC again, to knock them out! (Davidson had come in the back door to win their conference tournament, after a so-so year.) As they say, anything can happen in baseball. And, as Tom Hanks says, there's no crying in baseball!

Watched the baseball last night on ESPN3, switching back and forth. The Davidson win was truly an upset, and proves anything can happen. There were two very close plays at the end of the game which could have gone either way. Here in my town Wake Forest swept through to the Super Regionals in their first time in the tournament in 21 years. It is fun to watch on TV and fun to be there in person. I did both and had a ball. Davidson will get great publicity out of this.
