3 impressive showings in a row. I'm sure NW wanted the hell out of town. Let's hope they've turned the corner and are off and running. I thought we were going to be a singles hitting team this year, but we have some bomb potential. Hopefully Turner and Mathews (the hitter) heal up soon. If we can clean up these errors, we will be that much better. Let's get to .500 now!

RE: 2019 Baseball Season
I’m somewhat concerned about pitching depth. Lots of injuries in the early going.

Last year you could watch a lot of the home games on a live video stream but we’ve had three home games without it this year. Sure would be nice to have as many of the games start before a lot of us can get out there.

I went to the game and all phases seemed to be working. We had some nice at bats and everyone seems to be coming into shape. We have a tough series against Miami this weekend. Would love to see a sweep and get our record righted.

Flashes drop the opener of the double header, but snap Miami's 14 game winning streak in game 2 winning 12-2.

We might be better off joining the Big Ten.

Just gave away another league game - 9-8 to Ball State on a bases loaded HBP. 1-3 to start the league and struck out 20 times today.

losing to perennial bottom feeder YSU has to be pretty close to hitting rock bottom?

RE: 2019 Baseball Season
Eh, these midweek games against the YSU’s and Malone’s of the world don’t really mean much, win or lose. They give a chance to play more of the roster.

Being such a slow starting team every year gets a little old, though. It’s great to take care of business in May, but it would be nice to win more regularly in March and April.

RE: 2019 Baseball Season
whats different this year though is maybe Miami and ball state are best 2 others teams in conference but we're 1-3 in conference and we're lucky to have gotten the 1 victory.

I've heard some local baseball people say kent's recruiting has tailed off the last few years. I hope that's not the case and its more we graduated effectively our entire weekend rotation and for once we're truly young.

KSU's top 2 starting pitchers are out for the year with arm injuries. The weekend rotation would look completely different if Ryan Kircher and Collin Romel were healthy. Romel was All-American as a freshman and Kircher was projected to do the same this year. (Schrieber was a lefty reliever for 3 previous seasons and Wollersheim has been a mid-week starter for 3 seasons)

There have been a lot of position player injuries thus far this year as well.

KSU has been fortunate to have avoided the injury bug in recent memory but not this season, double that with Ball State and Miami both loaded with upper classmen and you have what has transpired thus far.

We will see where it all ends up, as anything can happen in the MAC Tournament.

RE: 2019 Baseball Season
I don't know how reputable the website is but last fall Kent landed the 25th best recruiting class in the nation. But looking at a few other sites they range from 40, 73 and 98 for the same class. With that much discrepancy it is hard to believe any of them. But here is the post from Kent's website.

RE: 2019 Baseball Season
The Flashes put together their best weekend of league play the last couple days and took another series from Central Michigan. What’s encouraging is both wins were blowouts. CMU came in tied for first.

This team is really, really banged up. Lots of pitchers and position players out. Now you can evidently add Pete Schuler to the list who didn’t play all weekend. He was having a great season.

Luke Albright has been really, really impressive on the mound and a couple of the younger hitters are progressing.

Absolutely correct JimJoyce. The athletic training staff has been extra busy this year with the baseball team.

KSU is no 15-18 overall, 5-5 in the conference.

They have Pitt at home this Tuesday and then go to beautiful DeKalb IL for the weekend series with NIU. Then they have Canisius College at home on Tuesday and go to Athens OH for the weekend series with Ohio U. The following week they have University of Dayton at home on Tuesday and then Toledo at home for the weekend series. The next week they have the weekend series at BG, with no mid-week games. The last weekend of the season they have Wright State at home and then go to EMU for the weekend series. 15 conference games and 4 non-conference games left.

Only NIU has a winning conference record of the remaining conference games.

Here are the MAC baseball standings:


School Conf CPct. Overall Pct. Home Away Neutral Streak
Miami 10-2 0.833 28-6 0.824 15-0 11-4 2-2 W4
Ball State 7-3 0.700 23-12 0.657 11-1 6-8 6-3 L1
Central Michigan 8-4 0.667 25-10 0.714 7-1 11-7 7-2 W1
Northern Illinois 7-5 0.583 11-24 0.314 7-4 4-20 0-0 W1
Kent State 5-5 0.500 15-18 0.455 9-4 6-12 0-2 W1
Bowling Green 5-7 0.417 12-19 0.387 7-4 5-15 0-0 L3
Western Michigan 4-6 0.400 11-21 0.344 2-4 5-14 4-3 L1
Ohio 4-6 0.400 9-22 0.290 6-7 3-15 0-0 W1
Eastern Michigan 3-9 0.250 8-27-1 0.236 5-2-0 2-19-0 1-6-1 W1
Toledo 1-8 0.111 10-21 0.323 1-4 5-16 4-1 L4

If you think that is bad, take a look at how the men's golf team is doing.

I am hoping this is because of the pink moon tonight.

Nice rebound to take last two from NIU. The bright side is they have the bottom 4 teams coming up in the MAC. Again just a strange year, but weird how they are only a game under .500
