Rpi makes a difference to me. We can't lose another one this weekend. But you can't win the next 3 unless you win the first one. Hope the team can flush it and win the later game

I think this will be a telling game. Lose this one and I think we're done. Show toughness, overcome the injuries, and I like our chances the rest of the series.

But what can you do to improve it? It is what it is, whether it's high or low. If we're in, we're in; if we aren't, c'est la vie.
Greatly prefer to be "in," but one should not worry about things that one cannot change.

As fans we have 0 impact on anything outside of supporting the teams financially. Following sports by nature is worrying about things you can't control

Hurts to strand the runner at third with less than 2 outs. 1-1-0 bottom 1.

Hart has to score on that wild pitch. Play to win. Minder pops up. How many times can we not at least get a sac fly.

Bases loaded for Burns. Sac fly. 2-0.

That's where the on-deck batter needs to advise the coach, who can't judge a ball rolling down the extended line.

Both innings should have been crooked numbers, honestly.

That’s going to take too long. It’s basically all on the base runner on a play like that

We have to win out this weekend. Otherwise the Wave will be in shallow water with the selection committee.

I asked during the first game how many times do they have to beat it before we take it off. Routine ground ball to short last inning turns into a base hit because Burns was nowhere near it.
