    Headed to T9 up 8-7 so Duke is 3 outs away from taking the series.

    Opening series win is nice. Maybe we'll find out later this season that VMI is very good? Today's was close for comfort. Pitching wasn't quite as lock-down as the preseason hype led us to hope it would be.

    Two out three ain't bad, in the words of the poet.

    But this is not the look of a team that is going to be playing deep into June.

    It's early, very early. But still . . .

    I have faith. I seem to remember us starting very ugly before, including last year, and having a season to smile about.
    Of course, seeing as how I never seem to remember anything that my girlfriend tells me, (or so she says) I wouldn't put much confidence in what I thought happened.

    Oh, Jim. As you know baseball is a loooong season. Series wins are good. Marcus Johnson will be better with work and the great coaching they have and I'm betting have lots of good starts. Lots of good to take from the weekend!

    Sure. And holding on to the win in the rubber game was big.

    The narrative going into the season was that it would take Duke some time to get the position players lined up but that the pitching was going to be lights out from the get-go.

    Clearly not the case.

    And Duke wasn't the only ACC team to lose to a mid-major. Notre Dame lost to Delaware, Pitt lost to Canisius. But most of the ACC took care of business and by take care of business, I mean 3-0.

    The competition gets better real, real soon and Duke had best do the same.

    Surely, this is obvious, but February weather makes baseball a bit trying as a sport.

    Copy that. For most of the country college baseball is a winter sport for at least a month.

    Was it Liberty that we lost a series to early on last season?

    Losing the opener to VMI was a bummer, but winning the series is much better than losing a series...Ha Ha!

    Duke won both regular-season games against Liberty. And lost both games to Liberty in the NCAA Tournament.

    Duke opened last season by winning two of three against Coastal Carolina.

    Thanks, Jim. I know I can Google all that stuff, but it adds so much context when we get it from you.

    I had completely forgotten about our Liberty wins during season and struggles in the round robin.

    Duke plays App St at 4:00 today. Both teams are 2-1, with App having beaten Campbell in their opening series.

    Friday night can't be much fun for a pitcher throwing the ball in cold temps.

    Duke had the bases loaded, batter on looking at a 3-1 count with only one out.

    Pitcher fired 2 strikes in a row, then smoked the next batter leaving 3 Dukies stranded on base. Grrrr.

    Still 4-1 App.

    Thanks Chad Knight! Homer over the Blue Monster with 2 men on, ties it up. Only one out still.
