Gave up all but one run in 2 innings and the fielding really allowed a lot of it. Pitching needs to improve as there’s not much outside of Teel right now. EMU is a very good hitting team but possibly the worst pitching staff we will see all year. Our lack of pounding bad pitching concerns me the most so far this weekend. Both of these games should’ve been over early but we are very consistent at stranding a ton of runners.

Walton has to figure thing out. Finally putting up runs and pitchers can’t get anyone out. The defense isn’t helping either.

So, this begs the question, are we only developing one or two pitchers every year or are we not doing a good job of identifying talent. We hear every year about all these “outstanding” arms we recruit, yet we generally only see a staff that can be counted on of possibly two starters and maybe a closer. The rest are throw em out there and hope.

We have 4 of our better pitchers injured. EMU has terrible pitching so besides the 8th inning last night and when they walked us today our hitting has not been what it should be.

That’s a problem to be sure ... but we really have had catastrophic injuries this year. It’s exacerbated

I realize the issues this year. And we should have been out of the inning today with no runs instead of 5 because of keystone copping a Taylor made double play ball, but this It has has been pretty much a common problem for several seasons. And at the end of the season the no1 and 2 wind up with dead arm from having to pitch too many innings as there are few reliable options for relievers in bigger conference games.

I completely agree that hitting is no where near it should be, and hasn’t been, but against an the likes of an Eastern Michigan we should have the talent to go well down staff and make 7 runs hold up, not throw BP pitches or a walk-a-thon which seems to happen all too often.

The pitching wasn’t good, but at least there’s an explanation there.

At the plate, this is the third straight year we’ve been bad. Really bad. If a team just throws strikes, we’re doomed.

Even though EMU is a really good hitting team (look at their stats) I agree 15 hits and 9 runs is too much. Fielding allowed a lot of that to get started in those two innings though. 8 hits off of that pitching staff is really unacceptable...

Pokes get two on a misplayed double off Littel’s bat but leave runners at 2nd and 3rd.

Good news 3-2 Pokes
Bad news, EMU had tried to gift two huge innings, but other than Littel’s hit, nothing to show for it. Terrible at bats with RISP.
