Western's Baseball season ended today with an 8-4 loss to South Dakota State.

Western falls to 0-4 in its last four tournament games.

Weather: 80's, partly cloudy.

Attendance at Tulsa = 357.
And yet a #2 ranking coming in. Hmm ...

I think we played some sandbaggers during the course of the conference season.

Oral Roberts did not last long in the NCAA Tournament. They were playing in the Arkansas Regional.

They lost their first game to Arkansas 10-2. Then they were eliminated after getting beat by Dallas Baptist 18-9.

Oral Roberts finished their season with a 38-20 record (24-6 in the Summit League).

Hopefully we get some solid replacements for the rotation. With Dunne and Koch both gone to the Reds and with Mikel transferring, we lost 33 starts from last year.

Happy for Koch, but thought Koch, Drake and Mikel would be a solid start to next years rotation.

Next men up I guess.
Think Purple...lets think Gold as in Championships!!!
