Niners defeat 12th ranked FAU 12-7.  FAU WAS 8-1 in conference and had some decent OOC wins, including sweeping Mississippi State, ranked 11th at the time.

Did Clt ask why Major was not shopping at Neiman Marcus with his loot?

Niners still have a shot at a decent conference record. Some lower level teams still left to play.

After this weekend, we will have played what should be 2 of the 3 best teams in the conference this year.

Niners win in 15 at FAU. Now 5-7 in league with the hardest part of the schedule mostly over (Still have a series against Rice)

We won 2 out of 3 against a ranked team.  And 3 of our conference losses were against Southern Miss, who is now 11-1 in the conference, 2 games ahead of Rice and FAU.  Half of our conference games have been against  top 20 rpi teams, and we would still be in the conference tournament if it started tomorrow.

Hopefully the team can build some momentum off of what was truly a great series, especially with the bats.  Anybody know whether that reliever that came out of the pen and threw 7 scoreless innings for us can start some games for us?

Unbelievable effort by Holden Capps!  Came in with the bases loaded and 2 outs in the 8th, and we had just walked in the tying run.  He gets a big out to get out of that jam. Then pitches 7 more scoreless innings, allowing only 2 hits.

As far as him starting, that's a good question.  I know he was used as a starter some in JUCO.  I wouldn't mind giving him a shot, since we've struggled to find a consistent Saturday starter this year.  You hate to take a solid lefty out of the bullpen though.

Holden Capps named C-USA Pitcher of the Week & Drew Ober named Co-Hitter of the Week.  Ober's second time winning the award.

Waited 20 minutes for chicken Philly basket in 2nd inning, only 1 register open, 20 people waiting in line for food,  ended up getting no fries with my order. #dobetter

This was a very agonizing game to watch in person.  Another base running mistake with 2 runners on base definitely did not help.

We are better than last year. However, this is definitely our worse loss of the year. Not even close...........horrible loss.  >:(

Yep.  There is no way to predict how costly that base running mistake was, but we would have had 2 runners on base instead of ending the inning scratching our heads.

I can't think of a loss worse than this in all my years of following the program.  To follow up beating a Top 25 program in a weekend road series with a loss to a Bottom 25 program a few days later is inexcusable.

I blame Ken Burns for giving A&T a four hour pep talk.

I agree. To add perspective, before last night our all time record against A&T in baseball was 23-1.  :o  23-2 now.  ???
