What To Expect
As Philip Westmoreland pointed out earlier this week this is a very good Long Beach State team. Although hey are solid on the mound, they have struggled at the plate. Of course, Baayoun is a very good pitcher and has been effective as a Friday starter for Long Beach State. However, the game tonight could easily be a low scoring affair between the two teams.
Of course, the Rebels will be on fire on the rubber for this weekend. They have something they want to prove against a quality opponent. However, Long Beach State will be a formidable opponent this weekend and could be a really resume’ builder for the Rebels moving forward.
If the Ole Miss baseball team can be effective at the plate against Baayoun there should be no problem with the Dirtbags. First pitch for game-1 is set for 8pm CT and can be viewed via Beachvision.Of course, good luck to coach Mike Bianco and the Rebels. Hotty Toddy!
