I would say that we hit the ball ok, but not great. The main issues were the wind seeming to cut down a lot of extra base hits and turning them into easy fly outs (though it saved us on a bomb late) and a lack of timely hitting. Our leadoff hitter was 4-4 and I don't even think he was the 1 run.
The other thing to keep in mind that was their ace and is supposed to be pretty good, not that we wont see better once SEC pitching comes around. I think people were expecting us to come down and slug it all over the place, but Maryland is better than most of the scrubs we seem to play in the beginning of the season. They played well in the field and stole a lot of hits from us too. We definitely need to pick up our play, but it was opening night and there's a lot to look forward to. Mostly baseball.
