bleedCrimson.net: Your thoughts on the weekend overall?
Rocky Ward: It was a weekend where we really couldn't get any traction. We didn't play terrible baseball but we didn't play great. We just kind of played in the middle. They made plays that needed to be made and we didn't. We left a boatload of people on base all weekend and in particular game three. That was a game that we'd finally gotten the edge. We'd gotten a 4-2 lead and got a zero on the board and kind of had control of the game and had runners on base and couldn't score. We had runners on second, couldn't get it done. We had a leadoff double that couldn't score. A man at third with less than two and couldn't score. It was overall a frustrating weekend.
We had a couple more injuries. Kyle Phillips missed the Saturday game because of a rib injury. Ormseth on Sunday hurt his elbow, we'll have a little bit better idea later. We're already pretty short. The game Phillips didn't play, Brandon Cooper played well. He had a double and score a run that kind of got us moving. We just couldn't get much together. They're [UTSA] kind of an emotional team and that type of team has a tendency to do well when they're on the top side and they were on the top side most of the time except for a few innings and in those cases where we led we made mistakes. When Ormseth came out there was a man at second and we wild pitch him to third and then wild pitch him in. Just shoot ourselves into the foot and put them back in the game. They've got some guys with some pop and one of them barreled it up and put it out of the yard. Then we lost a man and gave up a three run inning. It's been our achilles heel. We really struggle with giving up multiple run innings. I think if you look at our statistics, I think that maybe this ball club has put up more shutout innings than any team I've had but they've also had a tendency to give up three and four run innings on the other side of it.
