Baseball: Series @ William & Mary
As big as Wednesday night's win was against ECU, this weekend series on the road against the Tribe is nearly as big. We can't afford a letdown where we lose this series against an inferior opponent, or else all the pollsters will see when it comes time to vote on Monday is that we had a 2-2 or 1-3 week.

Landen Roupp (1-2, 4.91 ERA, 24 K's, 9 BB's, .247 BAA, 22.0 IP) and Luke Gesell (2-0, 2.42 ERA, 19 K's, 3 BB's, .241 BAA, 22.1 IP) will start, as expected, for the doubleheader games on Saturday, which start at noon. Each of them will be making their 5th start of the season. Freshman Ryan Calvert (0-0, 6.23 ERA, 12 K's, 6 BB's, .297 BAA, 8.2 IP) gets the nod on Sunday for his 4th start of the '21 campaign.

W&M (2-8, 1-2, # 236 RPI) counters with these projected starters:

* RHP Wade Strain (Gr.): 2-1, 2.45 ERA, 16 K's, 3 BB's, .225 BAA, 18.2 IP (4th start)
* LHP Zach Tsakounis (Jr.): 0-1, 5.62 ERA, 8 K's, 2 BB's, .300 BAA, 8.0 IP (2nd start)
* RHP Ben Greenspon (So.): 0-2, 3.65 ERA, 5 K's, 2 BB's, .356 BAA, 12.1 IP (4th start)

W&M's offense has been anemic so far this season. Only once have they scored more than 4 runs in a game, a 7-3 victory over Charleston last Friday. They have only had 2 standout hitters, sophomore 3B Ben Williamson (.343, 3 RBI, .457 SLG, .400 OBP) and junior CF Jack Cone (.303, 3 RBI, .424 SLG, .368 OBP).

As a team, W&M only has 3 HR on offense thru 10 games, with a .199 team batting average, .301 SLG and .292 OBP. They have also struggled on defense, having committed 14 errors (.961 Fielding).

The Tribe pitching has not been much better, either. W&M has a 6.35 team ERA and has allowed opposing hitters to bat .311 against them.

Redshirt senior righty Michael Zubovich (0-0, 3.38 ERA, 3 K's, 2 BB's, .361 BAA, 8.0 innings) has been the most trusted arm out of the pen, having made 3 appearances and pitched reasonably well. Freshman righty Garrett Newsome has made 4 appearances and held opponents to bat just .211 against him. However, thanks to a lack of command (2 hit batters and 2 wild pitches), his ERA sits at 5.40. Still, he likely represents the most promising pen arm going forward as he develops.

Baseball Preview: at William & Mary

Seahawks visit Williamsburg to open conference play

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – Fresh off a win over nationally-ranked East Carolina in midweek action, UNCW looks to carry their momentum into this weekend's Colonial Athletic Association series at William & Mary.

The Seahawks (11-3) charged past ECU, 10-2, after allowing a pair of runs in the top of the first. UNCW starter Jacob Shafer allowed four hits over his five innings, but just one after the third inning. The bullpen combined to allow just three base runners over the final four innings.

Brooks Baldwin collected a career-high four hits as the Seahawk lineup posted a season-high 17 hits with each starter getting at least one.

The Tribe (2-8, 1-2 CAA) dropped its CAA opening series last weekend at the College of Charleston and did not have a midweek contest.

Landen Roupp, Luke Gesell and Ryan Calvert are UNCW's projected starters for the series, which opens with a doubleheader on Saturday.

All three games will be streamed and aired locally in Wilmington on The Breeze 95.9 FM.

Have to win pretty much every series in the CAA, then pull of some wins against the good OOC games we have in front of us. Do that, and we could get a pretty good ranking in regionals.

We need to come out and win game 1 against a good arm is what we need to do. He's a good one and we can't let down. Hopefully we get fired up!

Hawks up 4-2 in the top of the 7th. Cole Weiss just got an RBI single and the Hawks have 2 in scoring position with 2 outs.

Tribe starter Wade Strain is still on the hill.

Roupp remains in to pitch the bottom of the 7th. Through 6, he’s allowed 2 runs on 3 hits, striking out 5 with 1 walk.

Roupp works around a 1-out single to put another 0 on the board.

Top 8th, still 4-2 Seahawks.

Roupp makes it 7.2 innings, but back to back walks prompts Hood to bring in Adam Smith.

To the bottom of the 9th we go, still 4-2.

Smith stays in to try to close the game out with a Save.

Hopefully this will end up being the only close game of the series. After Strain, the W&M pitching has proven to be untrustworthy.

Smith, who has gotten to a 3-ball count to the first 2 hitters of the inning, succumbs to a 5-pitch walk, putting the tying run at the plate with 1 down.

Another walk. Ugh. 1st & 2nd, 1 out.

Gotta get back in attack mode here. Make these hitters beat you.

Hodges is now warming up. He warmed up last inning too so he should be able to get ready quickly if needed.

A 2-out single makes it 4-3.

2 on, 2 down.

I think this is more UNCW losing which is an RPI killer. Absolutely need to smash them the next 2 games. That sucks!
