Swept by SIU-E, now 1-9.

Gave up 40 runs in four games, two of which (Friday DH) were seven innings.

Pitching obviously a problem.

RE: Bronco Baseball 2022
During the COVID budget-slash panic that Montgomery enacted across campus, almost all of the Olympic sports got assistant coach positions cut. The baseball program doesn't even have a pitching coach. Completely ridiculous

Gernon has two paid assistants.

If he doesn't hire one of them to be pitching coach that's on him.

That’s not true. The second assistant position was cut during budget cuts. The position had to be fund raised for. They are the only team in the MAC without two full-time assistants other than Akron (who cut their program and brought it back).

I'll take your word for it.

But Gernon could have hired one of the assistants to be pitching coach regardless of where salary came from.

And it's not totally true they don't have one. The volunteer assistant, Blaine McFerrin (who was a full-time assistant 2010-18), is working with the staff according to wmubroncos.com

Pretty sad. I hope Montgomery is gone soon! He doesn't care about Athletics!

Bailey was cut from the same cloth and didn’t take too long to cut short her tenure.Why not the same for Montgomery…he must have a lot of friends on the board. When Dunn got here he turned things around quickly when it came to athletics.

Home series got moved to Ball State due to field conditions at Hyames. That happens every year, it seems.

RE: Bronco Baseball 2022
Broncos won last two to salvage a weekend split at EMU.

Now 6-17, 4-6 MAC (move past Akron into ninth place).

Good news is team ERA is under double digits.

Play a make-up home game with Ball State Tuesday afternoon assuming Hyames Field is playable and weather permits.

RE: Bronco Baseball 2022
Interesting factoid:

Only Ball State and Central have winning records both in conference play and overall.

Everyone else .500 or worse.
