Did I say eight wins in a row? I meant nine. This team is absolutely scorching hot right now and are looking to roll the winning streak into double digits today. Game time is 1pm CST and Stefan Crichton takes the mound for the Frogs.
It has been a remarkable rise for the Frogs, who at the start of today are (for the first time) 10 games over .500 and are back in the top 40 of the RPI rankings since early 2012.
This team is full of good leaders, both vocal and "example, but it has been the steady maturity and growing consistancy of the younger players that has turned this teams season around. That, and the softest part of the Frogs schedule just so happens to be right now.
Tuesday is a huge test, the Frogs welcome a very good Texas A&M team to Lupton, get out to the ballpark for a 6:30 first pitch. And now, your morning links:
