Ben Wetzler and his 7.84 ERA take the mound at 10am today. Beavs starters have a combined 7.15 ERA and only 14 strikeouts in 34 innings. The story this year has been (lack of) pitching and defense. The offense has actually been quite good (at least by OSU standards), and that's what's kept them in games.
We'll probably have to suffer through one more weekend of Wetzler, Baylis, Childs, and Wilkerson before Pat Casey accepts reality and puts Boyd (and Schultz, though he has been bad so far) in the rotation. Cole Brocker can fill Boyd's role. Jace Fry is about a week away. I expect him to join the rotation on 3/9 in Corvallis.
St. Mary's starts Martin Agosta (1-0, 0.60). The team is 5-3 overall and not very good. Beavs should win if they get a decent start.
