bleedCrimson.net: Your thoughts on the game today against Texas State?
Rocky Ward: Well it's been a little bit like what it's been lately. We start off the game okay. We gave up a run and that was fine. Then we get a two run home run by Bobby and kind of get it moving. Then we give up a cheap run in the second. In the top of the third we get back-to-back singles but Rust lines out to first and at the time considering it was a line drive at the first baseman, Mack is able to beat the first baseman back to the bag so we don't line into a double play. So you feel okay about it. It could have been worse. The end result is we have runners at first and second, nobody out with our three, four and five coming and we don't score.
We follow it up, Adam gives up a solo home run to a guy that hit this third home run of the year. The humidity is high and it's hot and the wind is blowing in from right and the guy just sneaks it over the wall in right but he hit it good. Then we walk a guy, hit a guy, give up a dumper to second for the second run of the inning. We have an error, that by the way was a pretty tough chance, that makes it 5-2.
We continue to get guys on base but we can't drive them in. We can't put together a big inning. This is has kind of been the problem with this club all year. We've left a lot of people on base and haven't been able to get the big inning and yet find a way to give up the big inning. So it's 5-2, you get a couple zeroes to work with and the game is kind of stabilized but we can't get anything going offensively and we give up a four-spot and it's more or less over at 9-2.
