Moisekapenda Bower of RiceOwls.com has an excellent article on the return of Mike Ojala to the Rice pitching staff. Ojala had his first appearance on Friday against San Diego where he worked 1.1 innings out of the pen while striking out two batters. He had surgery done on his pitching elbow for a tear in his ulnar collateral ligament on June 18th. If Ojala can make a solid contribution to the Owls staff in the coming months to help offset the team ERA of 4.95 ERA, then the Owls will be a force to be reckoned with in Conference USA.
