    I know we're looking ahead, but Creighton appears to be back with a venegance this year. They've won 2 of 3 at Stanford and have piled up quite the record so far (as has the Johnnies). UConn still has a decent RPI, but they look like teams of Xavier past where they play a difficult schedule and barely win any OOC games.

    Even Georgetown is coming off of a weekend sweep at Ohio State.

    Xavier wins a wild one 11-10 in the opener against Bowling Green. Jared Cushing hit a 2-run HR in the bottom of the 9th with 2 outs to walk off.

    Another series clincher with a 10-3 win against BG. Xavier blew the game open with 5 runs in the 7th; the highlight was a 3-run HR from Jared Cushing. Musketeers will go for the sweep tomorrow at 1 PM (or earlier depending on tomorrow afternoon's forecast).

    X is #31 in the RPI. I still don't think an at-large bid to the tournament is really possible.

    Xavier is also #1 in the Big East in Warren Nolan's ELO ratings. 48th in the nation.

    UConn certainly doesn't have an at-large path the way they've been playing of late - if Xavier wins that series at UConn next weekend, there will be more pressure on the Huskies just getting into the Top 4 of the Big East. Villanova and Butler are the only teams in the league that are going to be pushovers.

    Tomorrow's game against UC at Prasco Park has been postponed; tentative makeup date will be next Tuesday (April 9). Not sure if they'll have the 2nd game of the Joe Nuxhall Classic the following day, but Wright State and Miami both have openings for April 9 and 10 if need be.

    Xavier wins their Big East opener 9-5 at UConn. Luke Hoskins only allowed a run in 8 innings, but took the bullpen forever to get the final out (UConn actually had the tying run on deck).

    We'll see how Logan Schmidt does on the mound tomorrow in his debut against the Huskies.

    That's a big win. Get one more, and you consider the trip to New England a rousing success.

    Didn't get the W today - Xavier's old nemesis Garrett Coe held Xavier to two runs in an 8-2 loss.

    Starting pitcher for X TBD for tomorrow's early 11 AM start.
