We’re Going To The CAA Championship

15 May

The baseball game today had an abrupt stop. I don’t know about you, but I didn’t hear any horn indicating that there was lighting. When the big storm came by, we assumed that the game was over. My dad and I even went back home. When we saw that the rain stopped and JMUSports said that the game was going to start up again, we went back to the ballpark. On our way there, we got the great news that the game did start back up. We got there at the bottom of the third inning.

We missed what Towson did at the top of the third. Did I care? No. I was just glad we got their just in time to see the Dukes bat.

In the fourth, JMU finally got on the board on a SAC fly by Cole McInturff. JMU went into the fifth up by two. Towson cut the lead in half in the top half of the fifth, and that was the closest JMU have ever been to almost losing. The Dukes scored three runs in the fifth. In the sixth, they scored six runs. The rest was history.

JMU got the 11-1 victory and a spot in the CAA tournament. Also, Old Dominion lost their game today, so JMU is now tied for first in the CAA.

This was a good way to end their season at home. Now, we’ll see how the rest of the season (and the CAA tournament) plays out.

Their next game is Tuesday at Radford. First pitch at 6pm.

I hate rain… I REALLY hate rain

15 May

*groan* I hate rain

As a huge baseball fan, I hate rain. Mainly because baseball is to sensitive to rain. Football and soccer can handle rain just fine, but baseball and rain do not mix at all. Two MLB games already got rained out today and I wouldn’t be surprised if a third got rained out before the end of today.

Anyway, with lots of rain pouring here in Harrisonburg, I highly doubt that this baseball game against Towson is going to continue. This game only lasted two innings and they weren’t that exciting. No runs were scored and there were only four hits total.

The Dukes were really close to scoring a run in the first inning with David Herbek at third. However, Ty McFarland struck out and the inning ended. The second inning had Cole McInturff at second and ended with Jake Lowery hitting a pop-up to the first baseman.

As of right now, I don’t have any updates on what’s going on with the rain delay. JMUsports is not posting any updates on Twitter at the moment. However, I’m pretty sure the game is canceled. If I get any updates, I’ll make sure I post it here or on Twitter.

Bombs Away!

18 Feb

We waited a long time, but baseball season finally starts! (Courtesy:

Oh, boy! Break out the peanuts and cracker jacks because baseball season has finally started and, man, did they start off the season well.

The Dukes offense exploded in throughout the entire game.

Me and a bunch of other Dukes fans were cheering when Trevor Knight slammed a home run to start off the season. However, that was only the start off it. The Dukes dropped an offensive bomb in the first inning with back-to-back-to-back home runs and a bunch of RBI’s. As the Dukes fans around me were laughing at Bucknell’s misfortune, I was stuck scoring the game. I went into the THIRD column when it was still the first inning. That means JMU went through the whole batting order TWICE in the first inning

15 runs and 13 hits in just one inning. That would be a lot in a whole game, let alone the first inning.

After that, no body really cared what Bucknell did because they knew they were done.

The stadium was pretty full, until about the fourth inning when it started raining. About half of the people who showed up left when it started raining. Why? It’s not like it was pouring. When I was at the Virginia Tech- JMU game, it was pouring and I stood for three hours in that pouring rain. Nothing serious, just wondering.

The final score was 37-7. No, I’m not talking about the UVa.-VT game, I’m really talking about this baseball game. It was a really crazy game.

Also, I kind of feel bad for Bucknell because they have to play JMU three more times. There is a double-header tomorrow starting at 12pm ET. I would go to that game, but I’m going to head out to the basketball game tomorrow.

Yeah, it’s going to be a really crazy day tomorrow.
