  • Summit League Tournament 2019

    I feel like for the first time in along time this thing is wide open, and with our pitching and how hot we are going into it I like our chances.

      Re: Summit League Tournament 2019

      Loved that the team played well down the stretch, including taking the last two from NDSU when the Bison were playing for a chance to qualify for the post season tourney!

      Who do you start in the first game against Oral Bob? We are blessed to be as deep in pitching talent as anyone. The three-headed monster for starting games is a huge reason why we've won so many series down the stretch. Froom, McCay, and Olmstead have 3 of the top 7 ERA's in the league this year. Kinney from Omaha easily had the best ERA in the league. It will be interesting if they start him against Western Illinois on Wednesday or save him for Thursday with a hopeful matchup against the winner of SDSU/ORU. I wouldn't know if they'd risk bringing back their ace for a potential championship game after two-days of rest. After Kinney with a 1.88 ERA, their next two starters have 4.57 and 4.79 ERAs.

      Oral Roberts top three starters have ERA's of 4.47/4.99/5.45. It is very evident that they have to win with high scoring games. SDSU and Omaha have more aces to put on the mound. I really shouldn't discount Western Illinois, but I have a hard time seeing them win 3 games this week.

        Conference Tournament time is here. I believe it has to Olmstead in Game 1. He has the right mentality for the game. Always difficult to win on the road. Heís a bulldog and wants the ball. This tournament is wide open and right there for the taking. It will be nice next season when the event is a little closer to home. Iím ready to open up the IPad Wednesday night and watch the Rabbits in the opener. Here is the Summit Leagueís site with all the tournament information.

        Good luck to Coach Bishop and the Rabbits!

          Interesting choice - Froom the senior deserves the ball? McCay is next man up after leading off the Bison series? Olmstead, leads in innings pitched and ERA. Winning the first vs ORU would
          be huge! 3-0 and get on the bus. I plan to be there in time to salute the Anthem and enjoy a win. Go Jacks!!

            I think you have to go Olmsted. Heís been the Friday guy for most of the year going against everyones number 1 pitcher. Real important to get game game 1.

              Game 1 is almost in the books. Omaha big.

              The weather forecast says increasing risk of thunderstorms as the day goes on. Any updates from Tulsa would be greatly appreciated.

              Olmsteadís game today. Itís never a must win until you face elimination. In my opinion if you want to win the tournament Game 1 is a must.

              Go Rabbits!

                    Tulsa must have gotten a lot of rain. Heard on the news this morning that they may have to evacuate parts of the city if a levee fails.

                          They just started the pregame show on 910AM with Tyler M.
                          They are giving the starting lineups right now.
                          If SDSU beats ORU, I think they only play 1 game today. It will only be back to back games if they lose. They will have to play Western Illinois later today.

                            You can watch the game at thesummitleague.org.
                            Not a great start. Batter #1 was hit on a 3-1 pitch, batter #2 flew out on a 3-1 count, Batter #3 had a base hit in the first pitch and the 4th batter hit the ball off the pitcher(SDSU did get a out). The pitcher threw a few pitches and is still in there. Batter #5 just walked on a 4-1 count. Batter #6 got a grounder back to the pitcher to get the out.
                            Bottom line is that even though SDSU had a hit batter, walked a better and the bases were loaded they DID NOT allow a run.
                            SDSU now hitting.

                              2-0 SDSU after 2- Hackman hit a 2-run HR to left field.
                              2-1 SDSU after 3- Hensen from ORU hit a solo shot to left field.
