The new season begins today.
The Jackets get the prime time match-up facing cross-town foe Georgia State at 7pm. The Panthers split the series with us (Winning 10-1 and losing 18-2) but we didn't use our weekend starters and I would assume they didn't play their best as well judging from the scores.
Recently honored 1st Team All-American Deck McGuire looks to take the mound and get us off to a good start. Lord know we're gonna need everything he has as we tend to struggle in series after he pitches.
Before our game gets underway, Elon and Southern Miss. square off at 3pm. I think a lot of people are pretty confident with our chances in the first round (myself included). But we should NOT overlook Elon. The Phoenix is a very offensive-minded team. They average 10.4 runs per game, and lead the nation in home runs, and homers per game. If we have to depend on a slugfest to win a game, Elon has the capability to hang around.
