    Wow – Just wow!!

    Southern Indiana beat WSC last week 16-2 and I referred to that as an a**-whippin’. What do you call this?
    How awful that must have been for the Duluth kids. Yikes!!

    What is the mercy rule in D2? I guess you have to play 7 innings?

    No 10 run rule.

    There are 5 pitchers from Duluth that will feel the effects of that sweep on their ERA all year. Although the weird thing is Hytgen gave up 7 runs in 4 innings during the 2nd game and I think his ERA went down.

    The senior who started game 1 on the season has me on a HBP watch – he’s now 3 away from tying the Duluth season record.
