Tuesday Game Thread: vs. The David Lipscomb Improperly Pluralized Bisons

Last week’s game was rained out, so we’re playing tonight at Hawkins Field—6 pm CT on SECN+.

Remember to go to this game if you’re in town, as it benefits a good cause:

‘23 Record: 9-14 (4-2 ASUN).

The Improperly Pluralized Bisons actually opened the season in surprising fashion, taking 2 of 3 from the Notre Dame Diamond Jesi. The also took 2 of 3 from perennial Vanderbilt midweek opponent the UIC Flames. Then they lost 11 straight. In conference play, they took 2 of three from Jacksonville (not the Jaguars) and Queens (not NYC). What does that tell us? Nothing much. Just don’t take them lightly and we’ll be fine.

Player to Watch: #21 Jr. OF Alex “Sophia” Vergara (.333/.425/.640 with 5 2B, 0 3B, 6 HR, and 14 RBI). The Bisons offense is hardly a stampede, as Al Bundy’s hot wife from that Modern Family show is one of only two starters batting north of .300 (the other one being Mason “Todd” Lundgrin, who only wants to bang on the drum all day).

Anchor of Gold Tiger Beat Hottest Pitcher: #15 Grad LHP Noah “Homer Thompson of Terror Lake” Thompson (4-1, 0.91 ERA). He tossed complete game shutout on Sunday against the Kings of Queens, so we do not need to worry about facing him today.
