BIG Game Tonight - SAMFORD vs Bama

Hope our Dogs can pull off the upset. Alabama seems to be much improved over the Tide Team that we fairly easily beat last year. They are 7-0 and top 10 RPI. They have dangerous power hitters all through the lineup, and so far seem excellent defensively.

STARTERS: For Bama it will be RSFr. Garret Rukes, a lefty from Coconut Creek FL. He is 6'4" 195, and was a high school Honorable Mention AA in both of his last 2 years in high school. In watching him pitch(via streaming), I would say his fast ball is in the high 80s, he has a good curve and his go-to is a wicked change up.

SAMFORD - Sr. Erin Baldwin - A 6-5,195 Righty from Lake Charles Louisiana. He is 1-0 with a current ERA of 1.59. Baldwin was a JUCO xfer. He was the #4 ranked RHP in La. coming out of the #1 ranked high school team in the nation. He led that team with his ERA. His JUCO team won the national championship, and again Baldwin had the best ERA. :shock:

Interesting and challenging test for a young Bulldog Team. If you are thinking of attending, come very early, as the UA fans will be there in droves, and probably outnumber us 10-1. The game will also be streamed on the SoCon Digital Network.

GO DOGS!!!!!
