SFA is a good mid-level team, but the loss is just the fourth home loss for the Frogs in four years of midweek games. You can give the Jacks a ton of credit, but at the end of the day, the Frogs just didn’t get it done. Now they need to refocus on winning this weekend.
“We knew going into the game that we were thin on the mound, and we knew that they were really good,” Schlossnagle said of the Lumberjacks (25-18), who got six shutout innings from hard-throwing left-hander Erik Nouis (2-2) and 11 strikeouts from four pitchers. “I told the team before the game that outside of Long Beach State, that’s the best team we’re going to play in a midweek game.”
King made his first career start, but didn’t get a lot of time on the mound. Sounds like Schloss is saving him for the weekend.
“I was hoping to keep King under 45 pitches,” Jim Schlossnagle. “If we were trying to have him be a starter and not pitch this weekend, I would have left him in the game because I felt like he was throwing OK.”
LIT IN LUBBOCK!!!
The tickets for the three-game weekend series at Dan Law Field between No. 8 Texas Tech and No. 5 TCU have been sold out.
The Red Raiders will seek redemption after a 5-3 defeat to the Horned Frogs in the first round of the 2016 College World Series, according to a Tech Athletics news release. Although the commercial seating for the three games is sold out, student seating is still available.
The Red Raiders fell from No. 5 to No. 8 in this week’s D1Baseball rankings and have a 33-10 overall record this season. The Horned Frogs replaced the Red Raiders at No. 5 in the nation with an overall record of 30-8, according to D1Baseball rankings.
First pitch for Friday’s contest is set for 7 p.m. Saturday’s contest is scheduled for a 3 p.m. start, and the final contest on Sunday is scheduled for a 1:30 p.m. start.
Carraway is likely to be a mid-round pick, but I think Collins will be the first Frog off the board.
The first to be selected is defensive end Josh Carraway. Carraway was a key player on the Horned Frog defense last season. He totaled 49 tackles with eight sacks -- a team high. He recorded 11 tackles for a loss and forced one fumble. His athleticism matched with his speed, balance and quick hands make him a valuable pick and a likely selection in this year's draft. Carraway has the opportunity to be drafted in the fourth, fifth or sixth round.
