I am absolutely shocked that Emory didn't get in.  All the numbers seemed to favor them getting the final pool B bid.  It is frustrating that we will not be able to see The Eagles try and defend their South Region crown.  We need to move to a field of 64 as soon as possible as this format is absolutely ridiculous. 
I think that the number that "did Emory in" is the loss to WUSTL.

Emory went 1-1 vs the Bears;  CSU-East Bay traveled to St Louis two weeks ago and swept the DH.

Give Emory one more win and one less loss, and I think that that neutralizes any factors in favor of CSU-East Bay, whom I thought got the 6th Pool B. :)

that's probably all they'll need...he's that good,


seriously?....hopkins isn't exactly bringing down an offense that is comparable to York, or Averett, or Hampden Sydney or some other poor school he beat up on this year...

Cutter,


Moreland has had an excellent career.  Narch isn't even a CNU fan....

He also quieted NCWC (twice), Methodist and Greensboro this year. 

I'm sure Hopkins pitching beat up on some less than stellar teams also. 

Everyone knows Hopkins has some formidable offense.

forgive me if i'm not overly impressed with jhu's offensive output against washington college, mcdaniel, swat, muhlenburg, gettysburg, villa julie, dickinson, f&m, springfield, pitt-bradford and the likes...i could be dead wrong about moreland getting the best of the blue jays, but it's not as though the kid hasn't faced his fair share of quality teams in the usasac - his non conference starts included just 2 starts against teams with losing records (hsc at 17-25 and york at 14-27) - his lone no-decision of the season was against a tournament team, and he struck out 12 in 8 innings before turning it over to the bullpen in that game - he beat a d2 team that had a winning record - in all, 8 of his 12 wins (and 9 of his 13 starts) came against teams with winning records and he beat two teams that were at some point regionally ranked...i'm not sure i'd call that beating up on "poor" teams

his season line goes like this:
12-0, 1.70 era, 100.2 ip, 111 k, .192 opp ba

I get that the centennial conference isn't very strong, and fully respect CNU and Moreland for what he/they have accomplished.  I only felt that saying all they needed was him was just a bit premature.  I think it will be a great matchup!

Mr. Taylor,

Are you going to be there the entire tournament? I couldn't imagine a Hornet baseball game or tournament without you there?

After a rough first two innings, Moreland has settled down and held JHU in check.  CNU scores 4 in the 7th to tie the game at 5. Now in the 8th, JHU has brought Steppe into the game.

Long delay here.  Wiegand relieves Steffee
Matt McDaniel is scheduled to bat.  He just needs to get it out of the infield.

Well, Cole scores on a wild pitch by Wiegand, Neal goes to second and then steals third.  McDaniel whiffs.  two outs, with Neal on third. CNU 7-5.
Medina triples to CF and scores Neal!  CNU 8-5.
Giarizzi flies to CF for out #3.  CNU leads 8-5.  Kevin Morleand to relieve Ken Moreland.
