TCL NOTEBOOK: APRIL SHOWERS

“Rain, rain, go away…” was the tune that universities and colleges around the nation were singing this past week.  Actually some, including the MLB’s Cleveland Indians, are asking themselves, “Why is there a snow blizzard in April?”  Teams are now trying to reshuffle and reschedule their games that were cancelled due to inclement weather and attempting to get their squads back on the field.

But, through all the lightning, soggy turf and even snow, there were still stand-out performances by Texas Collegiate League players this week. See below for the TCL players that played well despite the conditions.  Stats are through games as of April 10, 2007.  

Baylor
Baylor's Wade Mackey (Mineral Wells–2006) allowed only one run on seven hits and a walk with two strikeouts over 5 innings but earned a no decision against TCU on Tuesday.

Duke
Catcher Matt Williams (Duncanville Deputies) led the Blue Devils to a victory over 5th ranked Virginia .  Williams went 3-for-5 with a double and seven putouts defensively.  The Deputy-to-be is hitting .327 on the year with 18 RBI.

Oklahoma
Nich Conaway (Weatherford Wranglers) pitches another gem in relief throwing 2.1 innings giving up no runs with five strikeouts against Baylor last Friday. Overall, his 18 appearances rank in the Big 12’s top ten and in 30 innings pitched in 2007, Conaway has 44 strikeouts, the most among a reliever and tied for third best on the staff.

Jared Freeman’s (Wichita Falls Roughnecks) bat has stayed hot as he leads the Sooners in hitting with a .365 batting average.  Freeman went 2-for-3 with an RBI against Baylor in game one on Friday.

Pittsburgh
Kyle Landis (Duncanville Deputies) continued his outstanding pitching on the season closing out the game in the 14th inning against Akron giving up no runs on one hit for the save; his third of the season.

Prairie View A&M
Wrandal Taylor (McKinney Marshals) didn’t allow any earned runs over six innings against Grambling State Saturday but was handed his third loss of the season.  Taylor (7-3) allowed seven hits and three unearned runs with four punch-outs.

Rice
Freshman pitcher Mike Ojala (Denton Outlaws) earned his first win on the mound by working a 2.1 innings in relief. The left-hander from Kingwood High School scattered two hits and struck out one.

San Diego State
Brandon Glover (McKinney Marshals) and head coach Tony Gwynn led the Aztecs to a weekend sweep over New Mexico .  Glover, a transfer from Texas A&M, went 5-for-11 with 3 doubles and two RBI.

Texas Christian
Jake Arrieta (McKinney Marshals–2005) earned his fifth win of the seasons pitching 6.1 strong innings against Air Force.  The
Preseason First-team All-American only gave up one run, five hits and struck out four.  Before the Falcons scored a run in the third, Arrieta pitched a string of 15 scoreless innings.
