A coach who does not bunt 95% of the time with men on first and second with no outs is soon to be in another line of work. Ball hit to hole force at third and the DP is still in order. Gotta bunt.
K or infield pop up and hit into a DP inning over.

The NC teams could bunt. They sac bunted very well and could bunt for hits.
We need to bunt better and run bases better.
Move a runner with every out available.
Worst thing is a K with one out and a man on third in the ninth. Hit the ball to the right side and we score.

I think I would have considered pinch hitting for Mooney in that spot on Saturday.

I can tell that many people on this board just started watching baseball when we started winning. You dont understand the game complaining about bunting with runners on 1st and 2nd with no outs. With these new bats the balls aren't going to launch off the bat like they did 5 years ago. If you watch a MLB game depending on who's up they will bunt 99% of the time there are runners on 1st and 2nd and no outs. Baseball isn't a game where you will average 5+ runs a game. In a game where batting .350 makes you a hall of famer/all american you have to get runners in scoring position to give you a chance to score with a base hit. You average getting a base hit more than you do a home run. Also you have to realize bunting gets the ball in play and at least makes them make a play

I agree with y'all. The dude all up in arms about bunting doesn't have a clue about baseball. With the old bats you could sit back and wait on the 3 run bombs but not anymore.

Its playing percentages, and limiting possible negative outcomes, thats most of baseball

Thing is in baseball successful hitters get hits 30% of the time, so being productive when you fail to get is huge

There are certain guys you just don't bunt with. Joey Pankake is one of them.

Just glad we were able to avoid the sweep.
Sadly, our pitching was good enough to win both Saturday and Sunday...offense didn't come through Saturday, but boy did they come through Sunday.

Takeaway from the weekend:
1-Have to improve consistency at the plate...too many games where we score 10 and games where we score 2..got to work on finding that happy medium of scoring about 5 a game.

2-Got to get Monty back to the old Monty. 3-of-his-last-4 starts have been very rough, the worst this Friday. Struggled against Clemson, struggled against Ole Miss, and he is not one we have seen a lot of struggle from. Crowe and Wynkoop are pitching very well right now, but for us to have the type season we want (CWS) we need Monty to get on track.

3-Scoring runners....seems to be our problem dating back to last year...where we struggled getting guys in with one out. Big thing was Saturday with Arendas on third...can't leave the tying run stranded 90 feet away. Again, goes back to consistency.

On a positive...bullpen pitched well again and outside of Friday's fiasco, Defense was pretty good too.

Time to bounce back and win the next series. I do remember, the last time we struggled at Kentucky, our season went pretty well overall.

That's putting it mildly. :)
