Week two of conference play is in the books and the Necks are making some noise. We gave South Dakota State a couple of gifts last weekend, which hurt, but we had no time think about what could have been with Oral Roberts coming to town.
I thought last weekend’s series against Bradley was a disappointment. We got another solid pitching performance from Dan Russell on Friday night which we let go to waste because we couldn’t find a way to put runs on the board.

Tom Lilja ignited the offense with two homeruns in two games, and Ryan Cowhey also added a 3-run shot of his own. Just because the win/loss column is not how we would […]
