I was at the game today sitting behind home plate. Bailey was hit hard a couple times and better outfield play would have made his day much better. In the second inning he pitched he got into a little trouble but grinded through it. I thought it was a solid outing. He struck one guy out on a nasty change up curveball. I was under the impression that pitch was a work in progress for him, but he froze a batter today with it.
After talking with people it seems like Davis really has turned a corner.
Not only did he alter what size bat he is using, he was able to generate more bat speed with the help of the O’s and the Blast Technology this winter.
Time will tell it it leads to better results and exit velo...
I think it is a pretty harmless loss all things considered. I didn't see us winning out. I felt like if we could head to the Big 10 tournament at 3-2 in the last 5 games, that was fine. Very hard to beat a team three times in a season, so I like our chances against them if we meet in the tournament. I definitely don't see Wisconsin or Penn State beating us on a neutral floor.
What we can't do is lose to Minnesota.
