    Minnesota State downed Ashland today 6-0 behind a great start by Bret Mitchell. Ashland was ranked #23 (CBN) & #18 (Ping) nationally. Mitchell threw a complete 9 inning game, striking out 11 and allowing just 4 hits. http://www.msumavericks.com/news/2010/3/9/BB_0309104153.aspx

    Concordia got thumped by Saginaw Valley surrendering 20 hits in a 13-2 loss – http://cugoldenbears.com/Articles/03-09-10_-_Base_SV.html

    Viewed the game on Live Stats. U G L Y we do not have an alibi.

    Looks like we are in search of a 4 starter and solid relief. Defense was okay, offense had some well struck balls but not in a collective bunch.

    Augustana will have a tough time with the first three games in Florida.
    I do believe they are trying to gear up for the conference and figure out the pitching and starting lineup.
    Will be tough to come out on top.
    Grand Valley rate #13 and are 4-1
    Nebraska-Omaha #25 and are 9-1

    WSU lost tonight however the umpire decided the game from the start. Would have been interesting perhaps at a neutral site? This was a sham. Been watching baseball a long time and never seen a more rediculas difference in strike zones. Easy to hit if you know the only way you can get a strike on you is to swing and miss.

    The Joys of Spring – Tuesday edition:

    – St. Cloud State game against Washburn cancelled in Kansas
    – Bemidji State games cancelled against Emporia State in Kansas
    – Northern State flies all the way to Arizona to get in games in the Russ Matt Arizona and has had all 4 of their games rained out so far

    These go along with Upper Iowa and Wayne State cancellations in recent days.

    Maybe every team should just play all their games in the Metrodome next year until April?

    Invite our regional teams conference to a Russ Matt type invitational? Games would be scheduled so teams would not need to be in Minneapolis all week unless they wanted to schedule more than three or four games. Play from 8 am until 10 pm each day? Wonder what the cost would be?
