Stretch fours prefer not to play on Blacktop infields.

Flashes complete the sweep. They score 10+ runs in all 4 games!

A complete implosion tonight to lose 8-7 to a bad Toledo team.

With that loss Kent is now 6-7 at home this year, 1-4 at home in MAC games.

I don’t think I’ve seen that since the 80s.

A 7 run 6th inning saves the day as Flashes hang on for 9-8 win.

We lost 3 of 4 to Toledo. New AD first move should be to fire Duncan.

His contract runs through next year same as Birkbeck. I'd assume they keep him on until then if they choose to let him go.

RE: Kent State Baseball '21
if you look at last 2-3 years we haven't got the recruits kent normally does.

We gave up 40 runs on the weekend 4 games series. Birkbeck is nationwide known pitching coach that any program would take at the drop of a dime. So in this case i gotta believe its the Jimmy and the Joes not the x's and the o's.

RE: Kent State Baseball '21
I know I posted this before, but not having Ronnebaum and Kirchner thus far in the season has clearly hurt them. Kirchner should have been the #2 starting pitcher and Ronnebaum should have been starting 1B/DH. Not sure why Duncan can't produce a more consistent lineup, as he is a hitting "guy" not a pitching "guy". Rommel has never been the same pitcher after the car accident/injuries from it. And Tyler Drabick graduate transferring to Lipscomb University for this season sure didn't help the pitching depth/staff. Justin Kirby has been a big disappoint this season as well.

There has been a lot of roster turnover the last 2 years. I am not sure if the guys listed below would be helping this season or not, but they all transferred out of KSU??
Wyatt Larimer - RHP
Brant Vanaman - OF
Greg Lewandowski - INF
Joe Capretta - C
Tyler Bischke - INF
Ethan Moore - INF
Blake Smith - LHP
Collin Witzke - RHP
Kory Patterson - RHP

RE: Kent State Baseball '21
Here is the KSU Baseball 2021 recruiting class:

Josh Qualls OH Amherst Steele 2021 SS Kent State
Eric Chalus, Jr PA Bethel Park 2021 LHP Kent State
Hunter Klotz PA Central (Martinsburg) 2021 C Kent State
Brandon Golubski OH Tallmadge 2021 LHP Kent State
Donovan McIntyre IL Marian Catholic 2021 OF Kent State
Connor Ashby OH North Canton 2021 SS Kent State
Jaden Varner OH Waynedale 2021 LHP Kent State
Peyton Cariaco GA Pope 2021 LHP Kent State
Jake Casey PA Upper St. Clair 2021 SS Kent State
Caden Leonard IL Lincoln-Way Central 2021 RHP Kent State
Rocco Bernadina PA New Castle 2021 RHP Kent State

Let's hope that there are some studs in there, especially pitching. Duncan/Birkbeck lose the following players after this season: Luke Albright, Jack Zimmerman, Nick Elsen, Michael Turner, Collin Romel, Ryan Lane, Kevin Dobos, Ben Carew, Alex Ronnebaum, & Cam Touchette.

Here are the recruits signed in the 2022 class thus far:
Ciaran Caughey MI Orchard Lake Saint Marys 2022 RHP Kent State
Andrew Hendrickx OH Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy 2022 RHP Kent State
Rueben Livingston PA Wilson West lawn 2022 3B Kent State
Ripken Reese MD Mount Saint Joseph 2022 SS Kent State
Cole Sansom PA DuBois Central Catholic 2022 LHP Kent State
Hunter Sipel PA Penn Manor 2022 RHP Kent State
Brody Williams KY Lyon County 2022 C Kent State

Inauspicious start to the weekend series at Mt. Pleasant.

CMU 10 - KSU 0 (ouch, that's going to leave a mark!)

We 100 percent aren’t making the MAC Tourney.

No one is making it because there is no MAC Tourney.

I thought it was a 4 team MAC Tourney?

If you lose 3/4 at home to bad teams like NIU and Toledo I dunno what made you think you were going to MTP and winning anything.
