The Midshipmen came in today wikth an 18-11 record, so this seems to be a pretty solid win. Next up, a SoCon series against VMI at King Field. I will be home sometime this weekend and hope to catch a game!

Agree Hobo, our pitching staff seems to be developing more maturity and depth.

Nice win last night against a good UNCG team. The bats have started to heat up which is exactly what they need to get the young pitching staff some support. A win today or Saturday will be huge!

It got a little dicey late, but the Terriers held on for an 8-7 win this afternoon. This guarantees a series win at UNCG and a chance at a sweep tomorrow afternoon! Conference sweeps on the road have been pretty rare- it'd be great to get one!

The Terriers survive a very tense top of the ninth by inducing a double play ball and they defeat Samford 7-5. Great conference win! It's amazing to me how much of baseball is luck. If that last groud ball is hit just an inch or two to the right or left, it's probably a hit. But I guess in baseball, as in life itself, you have to have some good luck to be successful.

A very good complete game pitching effort by sophomore Austin Higginbotham in the second game of today's doubleheader helped the Dogs to a 6-3 win and a split on the day after losing game one 8-2. The Dogs take the series two games to one; another great SoCon series win! The Terriers are now 7-5 in the SoCon and 22-18 overall...not bad for a team with such a young pitching staff!

Bounced back from a tough one run loss yesterday to take game two of the ETSU series 14-5 in Johnson City. The Dogs broke out the heavy artillery with five home runs. We need a win tomorrow to take the series.

ETSU mounted a rally in the ninth, but the Terriers hold on for an 11-8 win today. The team continues to wear its hitting shoes...more dingers today. Austin Higginbotham gets the win on the mound as he delievered another very solid start. This is the thirs straight SoCon series win for the Dogs! Now we have a very tough stretch with a midweek game at South Carolina and a SoCon weekend series at Western Carolina...a place where Terrier wins have always been very tough to come by. But the team is playing well and has confidence so I look forward to seeing what they can do.

Midweek games are mainly for pride (and game experience for some guys). Let's get 'em in Cullowhee!

The team had a bit of a rough stretch. We battled tough but lost at USC, and then lost two of three in the mountains last weekend at WCU against a very good Catamount team that we always seem to have trouble with. Then we dropped a couple of midweek games at Winthrop and USC-Upstate. Now I knolw midweek games don't mean a whole lot in the grand scheme of things, but I'm tired of losing to Upstate. It just irks me to see them beat us in any sport. And it just seems they've had our number in baseball forever- and they're not that good of a program. But enough on that. We finally got to return to the friendly confines of King Field- and made the most of it with a great 5-4 victory over SoCon-leading Mercer! Way to go guys! We have a doubleheader tomorrow against the Bears- they will be the last home games of the 2017 season, so come out and support our guys if you can. We finish the regular season with three at The Citadel next weekend. Go Dogs!
