There are always going to be rough spots in a season. After going 3-1 against Western Texas three weeks ago, the Chaps ran head first into a self-made brick wall up in Clarendon against Clarendon College. After blowing leads in both games 1 and 3, the Chaps suffered run-rule losses to add insult to injury before heading into spring break.
The three day break came at the perfect time in the schedule and allowed all the players to get away from the field and the classroom and get a refreshed mindset as they look forward to the long stretch toward the end of the season.
The first test back came against Vernon College in a single, 9 inning game. The Chaps took a 10-2 win in the mid-week contest to produce a team edge for the true test that will take place this weekend, the 4-game conference set against the Hawks of Howard College.
The Chaps have reworked the lineup and pitching staff and are looking to take on the No.1 ranked Hawks head on.
The first two games of the series will start at 3 pm at Christensen Stadium on Friday and will wrap up in Big Spring at noon.
The pitching rotation for the weekend will be RHP Levi Westerlund, RHP Keanu Ramos, LHP Colter Bostick and RHP Jayden O’Dell.
Hope to see you at the ballpark.
