Well…At Least they FOUGHT to the finish.

June 13th, 2008 · 3 Comments · Sports

It is with a saddened and distraught tone that I belatedly announce the failure of our beloved, number 3 nationally ranked, baseball team to advance past the super regionals this past weekend. I think we were all expecting, or at least hoping for, a more satisfying result than the one we’ve been dealt. Yes, they lost. However, it’s not just the losing that hurts, it’s how they lost. The ASU men’s baseball team had not lost in 4 straight games in the post season. They were a perfect 4-0 trying to close out a “little hope” Fresno State team that had their backs to the wall after falling soundly to the Devils in the first game of the series 12-4. Fresno State fought back like any good team does and skimmed past the Devils in the second game of the series 8-6 handing ASU their first loss of the post season. No biggy right? We’ll get ’em tomorrow thought the devils as well as the faithful fans. Fresno State would have no part of it though.
