Cats in Corpus Cristi

Post by bhoovy » February 21st, 2020, 6:27 pm

The opener Thursday against Texas A&M CC was canceled because of weather so today’s game against Mizzou was their first game.
Cats looked to avenge at 17-2 loss to Mizzou last year.
McCollough has another very good outing. Going 6 innings his last game and only giving up 1 run on 4 hits and 6 K’s. Today he once again went 6 innings, giving up 1 run on 4 hits, but 8 K’s today and today the bullpen backed him up not allowing any more runs. The offense pushed 5 runs across, including a 2 run homer by Ceballas for a 5-1 win.

That’s 3 in a row and a 3-2 overall record.

Tomorrow they have Texas A&M CC and then Utah on Sunday. Good opportunities for Casey Ford and Jordan Wicks to each get win number 2.

I believe I saw the bullpen added 5 more strikeouts to McCullough's great start. I don't know anything about Mizzou this year but they were always a tough game for us so I consider this a very good win. After all they are from the mighty SEC

All I know is what I heard on the broadcast yesterday and they said Mizzou was a heavy upperclassmen team last year and this year they are pretty young and inexperienced. They won 2 of 3 from Jacksonville St last week. A good performance by the pitching staff regardless of what they will be.

Utah just scrapped by Tex A&M CC 2-1 yesterday and is 2-3 on the young season.

This is a weekend the cats could bolster the win column if they get the pitching they are capable and find even a little offense.

Cats with another bad loss today to Tex AM CC. No offense and pitching wasn’t as strong. Try to get the W tomorrow against Utah and leave with a 2-1 trip.

Jordan Wicks throws another gem giving up no runs and no hits through 7 innings. Tyler Ekberg mows down Utah in the 8th and the Cats take a 1-0 lead to the 9th. But the Utes finally get a hit to lead off the inning and things fell apart and they walk off 2-1. Just one hit but walks and a wild pitch killed us in the 9th

Timely hits were had to come by in CC, Cats left bases loaded several times over the weekend. Hopefully pitching and offense all comes together this week.
