A couple of thoughts ...

Hats off to the USF pitchers and pitching coach making adjustments and pitching us backwards by throwing offspeed and sliders in fastball counts. We struck out way too much, especially Sunday and did not move runners well. Our hitters will need to adjust for the future scouting reports.

We have to get something out of Benton during the weekend starts or he simply needs to be replaced (possibly Kirkpatrick ... did a wonderful job to keep us in the game on Sunday).

Kudos to Packard ... really swinging the stick well. The kid can rake.

I thought DWS played well this weekend and he needs to stay healthy and in the lineup to give his bat a chance to get going. We need him offensively for this team to be championship caliber, IMO.

The difference in the series was the production of USF's 7-8-9 batters. They stayed on the bases this weekend.

I think this team may have learned more from this weekend than they would have if we swept USF. We learned how teams may approach us during tourney time. We are in great position this year despite no major publication picking us to do much. I think we can rebound.
