Hurricanes Baseball Weekend Recap

Filed under: Uncategorized — jantweil @ 6:08 pm

New facilities, same results for the Hurricanes Baseball team.

They won 3 out of 4 games against Rutgers. This team played like a young experience team yet was still able to grind out a couple of wins. They committed 13 errors over the weekend and had some mental lapses that cannot be accounted for on the statistics sheet. I was at all four games this weekend, here are some things that surprised me.

          Scott Lawson, JUICO transfer from Texas look great. He was 7-16 on the weekend, 4 doubles, 4 RBI, 1 HR. Solid defense. One play that stood out to me was he turned a routine single into a standup double with ease. His hustle and effort is always there.

          Harold Martinez seemed comfortable and broke open the game Friday night when he hit a bases loaded single to give UM a 4-1 lead.

          Ryan Jackson had a relatively quiet weekend. Sunday he was a homer shy of the cycle. Jackson batted third the first three games but struggled so much he was pinch hit for Saturday night was dropped to seventh in the lineup on Sunday. Maybe that took some pressure off of him

          Kyle Bellamy looked better than ever.

          Iden Nazario, reliever turned starter, has high aspirations. His goal is to be the Saturday starter. He might be on his way there since he pitched six innings, allowed on three earned runs and struck out a career high eight batters

          Taylor Wulf’s 12 to 6 curve ball is as good as advertised. He bridge to Bellamy should be pretty sturdy if he is on his game
