Baseball Improves to 4-0

Filed under: Uncategorized — jonemoss @ 10:22 pm

Behind Eric Erickon’s stellar performance tonight, the UM Baseball team improved to 4-0 tonight by beating Florida 8-4. Erickson went 6.2 innings, striking out 9 batters, and didn’t allow a base-runner until the 6th inning. Solid performances were turned in by Jemile Weeks (3-run HR) and Blake Tekotte (RBI single). It was also good to see the bullpen–considered one of the biggest question marks this season–shut down Florida tonight. Kyle Bellamy struck out 3 in 1.1 innings, and Carlos Gutierrez pitched a scoreless 9th inning. He looks real good this year, and it appears as if he has no lingering ill effects of his surgery. The Hurricanes try to keep the undefeated streak going tomorrow at 7pm and Sunday at 1pm, also against Florida. If you’re planning on coming out to a game, get there considerably early, because the crowd tonight was big and loud.

  1. Thanks for the post Jonemoss. Tell me its been years since I’ve been to the Light or is it now the A-Rod, are there still those huge lightposts in front of the infield seats which obstruct the baselines depending on where you’re sitting? I’m hoping that was part of the facility upgrades, I’ll always remember that when the Canes switched to grass from that hideous carpet they still had those stupid light posts in the way. What architect couldn’t have seen that as a design flaw?

    Go Canes!
