TCU's Preston Morrison (11-3, 2.55) will start for the Horned Frogs.

There is only one place that matters, I like this move a lot......and Lange has responded very well with additional rest. Poche has been nails the last two starts too!

Ok, I am confused is Jared Poche a LHP or RHP? You have both.
I love this strategy by our coach. Jared has been pitching lights out, and we still have Lange to go in either a elimination game or a chance to go up 2-0 in the winners bracket!

Strategy: Go big or go home! I like it.

I think it's a good strategy.... Heavy lefty lineup and Ta&m's lefty gave them fits and I believe Poche is very similar to that pitcher. Also Poche has been pitching really good as of late and is probably the most poised def the most veteran pitcher we have. Then if you win will probably be facing Vandy which I believe Lange has the stuff to beat that lineup so yea it's a great strategy IMO.

It's a bold strategy, Cotton. Let's see if it pays off for 'em.
