Does anyone know if Joey Aiello is hurt for Carthage? He was pulled early yesterday and is not in the line-up today vs. Utica.


He's back in the line-up today vs. Otterbein.  You know Augie better than most?  Sending a message early maybe??

It appears to be working as Carthage already has 4 in the first with only two hits. 4 unearned runs after an Otterbein error.

Carthage knocks off Oshkosh today 6-1. Mario Perez earned the win for Carthage who has won five straight to finish 8-3 on its spring trip. Perez's out is a huge boost for the Redmen who have already had solid pitching so far.

North Park follows up an 8-2 win over Plattsburgh State on Thursday with a 26-3 pasting of Westminster (MO) yesterday.

No word yet on how NPU did against St. Lawrence this morning in the Vikings' last appearance of the Gene Cusic Classic down in Ft. Myers.

North Park topped St. Lawrence, 4-1.  Steve Kuligowski struck out 17 batters in a complete-game effort.  the Vikings finished their spring break trip 5-1 and are 6-3 overall.

I've checked out the North Park record book on your NPU baseball website, but I can't figure out whether or not this is a single-game school record for strikeouts.

I don't have single-game records on my website.  The record keeping has not been complete enough to warrant that category, though I wish I could add it.  That said, assistant coach (and former North Central ace) Mike Kloss noted that when he struck out 17 batters in a game last year, he was told it tied a CCIW record.  I think we'll have to ask the folks at the CCIW office for confirmation.

IWU avenged yesterday's loss at WashU with a 7-4 win this afternoon.  They are now 6-4 on the season.

IWU picked up a great transfer in AJ Nathan from Lawrence. He was a teammate of Kevin Sullivan (HP '08)and Anthony Kopp (HP '09) at Highland Park HS. AJ set the season hit record at HP (66 hits in 33 games) and the BA season record, with .546 during his senior year at HP ('09). His primary position is catcher (1.80 pop time) but can be used as a closer, or play the infield. A great pickup of a great athlete for IWU.
My son played with them during HS, but attends college out East.

We'll see the true numbers once the season begins.

So far AJ Nathan has thrown out 4 of 21 (19%)...not exactly Pudge or Johnny Bench-like numbers.  Argue all you want about stealing bases off the pitcher, it goes down in the stat book against the catcher.  Either someone's number was timed wrong, or someone is allowing runner's to get jumps that are entirely too big for anyone's 1.80 pop time to overcome.

The inability to catch the ball has been the achilles heel for IWU so far this year.  They are averaging 2 errors a game.  In the 4 losses, they have averaged 2.5 making 4,2,1,and 3, respectively.

It is never a good thing when one of your starting infielders had as many errors as assists going into yesterdays game.

Back from Florida, and extremely optimistic about our, Redmens chances. The Errors are coming down to a manageable level, Kyle Pusateri looks strong at shortstop. The Hitting all the way around as a team looks better . Will Hodges and Joey Aiello didn't have to carry it. A real nice addition in 1st Base / DH John Hassar ( Trans UW Parkside ), And expect LF Billy Herrin to be in the top 3 Outfielders in this conference. This Kids Great !!! Mike Petti looks like he's gonna make some noise in RF also. Matt Soderland is looking strong behind the plate and with the bat also. The Pitching runs much deeper than it did last year. Perez and Rohe will Anchor, With Seniors Dan Dahm and Nic Jensen looking good, Sophmore Mitch Lochen looks like a machine. Freshmen Tyler Johansen, Sam Wilhelms and Luke Watson, don't throw at all like freshmen. This is my 1st post this year so I'll take it easy on the Bold predictions. I will say this is a similar feeling to what I had in 2009.

Congrats to North Park on the Kuligowski pick up. I watched him play in HS for Grayslake Central. The 17 K's dosen't surprise me.
