Sunday afternoon at the Light, with the fans expecting another repeat blowout like the last two games where the offense exploded unmercifully for 37 runs on 39 hits almost got an entirely different outcome. Different day, different ballgame. When you have Alejandro Rosario on the mound you can expect almost anything and it is usually not good. He has been having an up/down season and today it was the latter. the Bisons jumped all over him and if not for an overturned call in the second, today’s outcome could have been totally different. Every inning through the 7th, there was drama as their leadoff batter reached safely putting pressure on the defense as the Bisons kept on attacking and our pitching kept failing. Bad decision-making late in the game by Gino only added to the frustration. If not for the 3 DPs to bail us out and the bat of Yohandy Morales, this game would have ended on a very sour note. With the lead changing 4 times over the course of the game, it took the 7th inning moon shot by Yoyo and the sure arm of Andrew Walters to insure that this Mother’s Day ended on a happier note as Miami comes from behind to SWEEP the Bisons of North Dakota State6-4.
Be thankful for the SWEEP. We return Wednesday 6PM against UCF who we didn’t fare well when we last met losing 10-5 back on March 15th before the series with Clemson. Am assuming that Gino will go with Jake and hope that Rosario has his stuff for the FSU series next weekend.
