    Apparently Grand Canyon has some pretty salty pitching, because Xavier has hit the ball pretty well this year, and they've now been blanked in 17 of the 19 innings they've played against the Lopes. And the two innings in which Xavier scored, the Muskies were aided by five GCU errors.

    Xavier lost 6-0 yesterday. Two more games in Phoenix await.

    Xavier is #32 in the current RPI with the #2 strength of schedule in the country. And a trip to Austin to play Texas is still on tap!

    Xavier had an interesting game on Saturday. The Muskies took a 10-5 lead to the bottom of the 6th at Grand Canyon. The road trip had apparently taken its toll at that point, as the first three Xavier pitchers of the 6th inning failed to record an out. When all was said and done GCU had scored 16 times to take a 21-10 lead. But Xavier wasn't finished. After a scoreless 7th for both teams (not sure how that's even possible!), the Muskies struck for 8 in the 8th, pulling themselves to within a field goal at 21-18. Unfortunately, the Lopes got 4 more in the bottom of the 8th, and Xavier lost 25-18. That is one baseball game I am glad I did not attend!

    I didn't even notice until today that Xavier added a game against New Mexico State to wrap up their West Coast swing. I assume they made the addition because the Arizona game was rained out (and there were a couple of weather cancellations earlier in the year). To add to Xavier's absurd schedule, New Mexico State is 15-4. They beat Xavier 6-4.

    The Muskies are in Lexington playing Kentucky tonight. Kentucky may be the worst team Xavier has played in the last two weeks!

    The 6-13 Muskies (after a 16-3 loss @ Kentucky last night...almost unfair to ask these guys to go to Lexington last night fresh off 10 days on the road) have likely faced the #1 schedule in college baseball to date. They still have three in Austin against the Longhorns to play in a week and a half. But other than that, there is good news. The home opener (game #20 for the season!) is Friday against Evansville, and the schedule gets significantly more friendly (other than Texas) the rest of the way. So let's hope the brutal schedule toughened the team up for Big East play and didn't simply crush their spirits.

    Right on cue, the Muskies won their first two games at home against Evansville (who actually beat Creighton two games out of three last week); they'll go for their second 3-game sweep tomorrow afternoon.
