2019 Baseball

Post by SDHornet » Wed Mar 27, 2019 8:13 pm

Wanted to post about baseball last week but I didn’t want to jinx their big winning streak. The Hornets got off to a slow start but have since won 13 of their last 15 including a win over 3rd ranked UCLA on the road and most recently a spanking of Cal 6-0 last night.

The Hornets are 16-8 (2-1 WAC) heading into the 2nd week of WAC play. Most of those wins came at home, so the big test will be whether or not this young team can consistently win on the road.

Our baseball team (a long with the track & field team both men and women side) are the two extremely consistent programs for our University and I love it! (I know golf, tennis (even though there were some NCAA violations http://www.ncaa.org/about/resources/med ... is-program recently and softball) might have something to say about that but that's a conversation for another time. I think baseball is really apparent where being in the Big West would really help our cause. CS Fullerton (national powerhouse), UC Irvine, UCSB, and LBSU are all regional powers. If any of those squads has the 18-9 record (even though it wasn't in-conference play) with a win over now #1 UCLA, I think they would be getting top 25 rankings votes easily but since we're in the WAC, we're not getting much love in these rankings...

what's everyone takes on this? :coffee:
