Hawks will need to have some arms step up and it has to be more than just the weekend starters/main relievers.

Our biggest issue has not been pitching. It's been errors and the lack of run production. We have had 4 to 5 errors in games this year. We have left a lot of runs in scoring position and a number of miscues on the bases. Pitching, on the whole, has been pretty solid. I've watched our pitchers pitch their way out of bases loaded situations too many times this year.

In spite of the 5th seed, this is a very winnable tournament

Yep, and we’ve won this tournament as a 5 before. 2006, I believe.

RE: 2019 UNCW Baseball Thread
Looks like Northeastern's top starter, and potential opponent on Wednesday, is junior righty David Stiehl. Back when we faced the Huskies in April, he was operating out of the bullpen, only to return to being the Friday guy the rest of the season.

Stiehl threw a 3-hit shutout against Charleston on Apr 19 but got blasted the next week by Elon for 5 runs on 11 hits in 4.2 innings. He then rebounded to pick up wins in each of his last 3 starts against Siena, JMU and Towson.

Overall, Stiehl is 6-4 with a 4.52 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, 57 K's and 29 BB's in 67.2 IP.

Given Stiehl's up and down performances, it's certainly possible that NU opts to go with Saturday starter Sean Mellen, who has been the Huskies' most effective pitcher all season. The junior lefty is 5-2 with a 2.85 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, 107 K's and 37 BB's in 85.1 innings.

Yeah, that’s a big time award. Especially in such a tough season.

Indeed. Excited to see where he gets taken in the draft on June 3rd. Scalf did a great job of prioritizing Jones' draft stock. That's how you get elite talents to forego the draft out of HS and come here.

Jones is the 7th player in Seahawk history to take home a CAA Player of the Year award (below is the list), 6th under Scalf, and 3rd in the last 4 years. Another feather in Scalf's cap as he heads into retirement.

  1. Trent Mongero, 1989
  2. Battle Holley, 1994
  3. Bryan Britt, 1996
  4. Mark Carver, 2008
  5. Nick Feight, 2016
  6. Casey Golden, 2017
  7. Greg Jones, 2019

Congrats also to Kep Brown and Cole Weiss for reaching the 1st Team All-CAA and for 2nd Teamers Jackson Meadows and Noah Bridges!

The right side of the infield has been a real problem from day one but they seem to be playing better at the right time. The timely hit is something a ton of teams struggle with and it shows up more often when you make errors or bad plays to extend innings byt he other teams.
