Horns looking to take the series in today's rubber game against Texas Tech.

Tech: RHP Matt Withrow (2-1, 5.40 -- 4 starts, 20.0 IP, 20 SO, 6 BB)
Texas: RHP Nathan Thornhill (1-1, 2.61)

I think the top 5 will produce big today. Why is Hall down to 9? has he been slumping?
He's 1-for-7 in this series. Augie may also be doing it to try to essentially give him two leadoff guys when the lineup goes around.
Same question I had? I guess it is to give up bottom lineup some energy and more production. Why is Marlow at 6th also? i thought we should play Johnson at LF in Stell's spot and have Moynihan DH, because i believe that Stell really has not produced and yesterday he struck out twice.
My dream lineup for this team would be:
2. Johnson (LF)
6. Moynihan (DH)
Tech threatening early with a runner on third.
Thornhill hit the first batter, Brett Bell. Bell stole second and advanced to third on a grounder to second.
Two outs after a foul fly to first.
i think the coaches see the potential in Stell....only thing i can think of plus he is solid in the OF. Moynihan is limited in terms of extra base power...i think Stell can develop that. Of course I could be and probably am very wrong
Thornhill gets the foul fly to first and then a fly to left to keep the Tech runner at third and get out of the first with no harm done.
Bottom 1st: 0-0
Weiss' two-out single to right extends his hit streak to eight.
Payton follows that with a single to right on the first pitch, giving him an eight-game hitting streak.
Hinojosa up with two on and two out in the bottom of the first.
A walk loads the bases for Brooks Marlow.
Hinojosa draws a two out walk to load the bases with Marlow up.
The 6th spot in the lineup continues to let us down.
Horns strand three as Marlow grounds to first. The quest for the guy that can come up with the timely hit in the six hole continues.
Top 2nd: 0-0
and here we are with no legit threat in 6 hole....
Thornhill looks good in the second with two Ks and a fly to right. The hit batter to start the game the only blemish through two for the Texas starter.
Bottom 2nd: 0-0
or 2, 7,8, and 9.
Way too many holes in this lineup.
Moynihan also has way more power than Stell.
not sure how you can say way more power when both have a whopping 1 extra base hit...regardless it sucks.
Moynihan has shown it at the college level, Stell has not.
FYI, Tech stater Matt Withrow is the son of former Texas pitcher Mike Withrow (1980-81).
Ben Johnson showing off his power with a 2-run shot.
Ben Johnson with HR No 2 on the season, a shot over the left field wall.
2-0 Horns after Carter had worked a walk.
50% of the team's total.
Stell picks up his team leading 15th K on the season for the third out of the inning. Texas gets on the board, though, with Johnson's shot to left.
Top 3rd: 2-0
he hit one HR in community college 2 years ago...the year before no HR at San Diego. If that is doing on the college level, then we have a lot of power on this team.
Seriously what has Stell done to warrant this much playing time and to bat in the Top 2 spots in the lineup all season?
I could care less about how good he is in the OF, because with the new bats OF defense isn't that important any more.
