I think the mound and maybe home plate are the only 2 areas that are real dirt. I know that was the case with the old turn that got replaced.

the last field was definitely like this. Can't speak for the new one.

Just like Vanderbilt's field. Late in the season when the turf starts wearing out on the first base side of second base, it gets crazy with guys trying to steal or stretch a hit into a double sliding into second. Especially if there has been any rain where it is slick. I mean, guys literally have to start their slide about 3 paces earlier than normal or they will slide past the 2B bag a good 8 to 10 feet. It's funny on one hand, but very frustrating on the other (that is, unlike normal baseball).

Dukes win 1-0 in the btm of the 10th. Don't see that very often in college baseball...0-0 thru 9 full that is.

Dukes pitching being frugal against Quinnipiac for a 2nd day in a row. Good Guys leading 5-0 in the 5th. Shut 'em out, Dukes!

RE: 2020 Diamond Dukes Baseball
Dukes get another shutout (7-0 today) in consecutive days to move the season record now to 3-3. 3 straight wins and go for the sweep over Quinnipiac tomorrow.

And how about Justin Showalter's performance today. A complete game 1-hit shutout. In 2 starts now, he has gone 13 innings, giving up just 4 hits, and 1 run (earned). Very impressive start to his season. Well done, Justin!

17 scoreless innings this series. Impressive. That’s got to help the team era and confidence. Hope it holds up moving forward.

Great outing today. Should be 4-2 to start the season. Looks like some good pieces.

We have a Showalter on the baseball team and a Shifflett on the softball team. We truly represent our location!

The Dukes 8 run lead has evaporated over the last two innings. Dukes still up 10-9 in the bottom of the 7th with a runner on 2nd and 1 out.

Very glad for the win (and the series sweep), but continue to be concerned about the relief pitching.

Chase DeLauter appears to be every bit as good as advertised. He started yesterday's game and batted lead off. He also had the walk off double yesterday, and the extra inning walk off single on Friday. Not bad for a freshman.

Side note, I fully realize the RPI doesn't mean diddly right now only 2 weekends into the season. But, just for giggles, the team sitting atop the RPI right now is NC State, who is 7-0 and dealt the Dukes our only 3 losses. Take it FWIW (which isn't much this early)…

NC State also climbed to # 10 in the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper Poll this week.

No shame getting swept by them. We draw the Wolfpack tomorrow (Tuesday) in Raleigh.
