Wow, PFW looks like a really bad JUCO team. Alright boys, please don't make me eat these words.

No sooner said and we find ourselves trailing 5-4.

Is it just me or does the grass look as long as the 2nd cut at Bethpage Black? Maybe its me. The last game I saw in person was at PETCO in San Diego where the entire field looked like a golf green at Augusta.

Dons take the opener 8-6. Missed opportunities in the early frames came back to bit us I think. Now we need some help from the Mavs and Jacks.

North Dakota State beat South Dakota State 3-2 in Thursday night's game.

North Dakota State is 15-13 while Western is 14-14.

Western needs to win their last two games AND North Dakota State needs to lose their last two games in order for Western to finish in 4th place.

We will know the answer to that on Friday. With rainy weather heading to Fargo on Saturday, North Dakota State will now be playing a double-header on Friday.

ORU is not a lock to get in yet. If we win our last two and they lose their two against Omaha, I think we are in.

If that were to happen, Oral Roberts would be 15-14 while Western would be 16-14. Looks like we would finish 1/2 game above them. That difference is the result of a game between Oral Roberts and South Dakota State that was cancelled due to weather.

We also own the tiebreaker over ORU.
