    4 in Arizona against Oregon St (?)
    Back home for 1 against NKU
    Then here in Sparkle City for 4 v. USC Upstate. Will take some games in.

    Xavier 1B Luke Franzoni swings at the first pitch of the season and cracks a home run over the fence in left-center field. 1-0 Musketeers.
    Respectable start.

    Franzioni just scored again. This time after a walk and a double from Housinger. 2-0 good guys!

    You can't stop Franzoni. You can only hope to contain him! Now 2-2 with a HR, walk and single. Hopefully he scores his third run of the game this inning.

    And just like that he did. Housinger with the HR to make it 4-1 Muskies top 6.

    Lane Flamm came on to blow this in the 9th. Inherited a 3 run lead, and 4 batters later Xavier lost 5-4. What a shame.

    Interesting afternoon for the 0-3 Musketeers. They travel to Louisville, who actually kind of stinks now after being top 10 most years for about a decade. The Cards are 1-2 with an 8-7 win over Charlotte and losses to USF and UConn. Xavier is starting a true freshman who basically never pitched in HS. He was hurt his sophomore year, and both his junior and senior seasons were cancelled due to Covid (ridiculous last year!). Obviously, most of the best baseball is played on the summer circuit and not in the high school season these days, but it's pretty interesting to have someone this untested starting an early season game as a true freshman.

    The guy Louisville is starting pitched 11 innings last year and had an 8.18 ERA.

    Cushing hit a HR that looked like it went out of Louisville's stadium. 1-0.
