  • Shocks at Tulane

    Big road series for the Shockers as they take on Tulane this weekend. First game will be on ESPN3 at 6:30 tonight.

    The Shockers hot streak (10 of the last 11) has boosted their RPI 17 points in the past week to #69 per Nitty Gritty. After Tulane, they'll be coming home for a crucial eight-game homestand against strong competition ( #29 OSU; #75 Houston; #36 UCF; and #32 OU ) that will likely tell the tale of the season.

    Go Shocks.

    It looks like these games will be on CST, probably meaning a blackout on ESPN3.

      Weather Forces Changes to Series at Tulane

      4/5/2019 10:10:00 AM
      NEW ORLEANS, La. -- Due to weather in and around the New Orleans area this weekend, the series opener between the Tulane Green Wave and the Wichita State Shockers will now begin at 7 p.m. Friday, with a doubleheader scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. Saturday to finish the series. There will be no game on Sunday.

        I kind of feel like spring training has come to an end and the real season starts today. Hopefully, this year's team is more ready for what lies ahead than last year's team was. Only time will tell whether or not they are.

          Time for the Shox to make a statement!

          Another headscratcher today with Cincinnati going to Storrs and beating the Huskies 5-4. Cincy led 5-1 into the 9th and had 2 outs when UCONN launched a rally. Walk, walk, double, double and it was 5-4 and the tying run in scoring position but a K ended the game. Cincy is 12-16 and UCONN 18-11 but both teams are 4-3 in conference.

            Shocks go with


            Boyer drills a double off the wall on the 1st pitch. Gibby moves him to 3rd and Ritter scores him on a single. Good start.

              Cadena walked, O'Brien struck out and Wallace destroyed one over the scoreboard. Slavens grounds out. Shocks 4-0.

              No way it could start any better or stay this good. Snavely with a 10 pitch 1-2-3 inning against a group of guys hitting .375 with 20+ homers.

              4-0 Shocks top 2.

                Tulane gets 1 back in the bottom of the 2nd. 4-1 Shocks top 3.

                  UCF continues USF's nightmare in conference, scoring 3 in the bottom of the 1st to bury the Bulls 4-1. UCF moves to 2-5 in conference, USF 1-6.

                  Shocks going through the motions at the plate in the 2nd and 3rd inning. Need to get the bats going again because I doubt 4 runs holds up against these guys.

                  Bottom 3 still 4-1 Shocks.

                  Memphis, playing out of conference, takes a 1-0 lead into the 8th against Southern. Southern gets a 2 out single run to tie the score, then get 5 in the ninth on ONE single and a handful of walks, errors and wild pitches. 6-1 loss for the Tigers.

                    Snavely living on the edge last couple of innings. Tulane get another one and it's 4-2. Shocks needed a double play to get out of the 3rd. Still not doing anything at the plate after that 1st inning explosion.

                      6 pitch top of the inning. Gotta like that.

                        Shocks really blew a chance in the top of the 6th, the kind of muck up that drives everyone crazy. Gibby and Ritter single to lead off the inning....1st and 2nd nobody out and Gibby gets picked off 2nd by the catcher. Just a mental mistake. Ritter then steals 2nd but we get nothing else.

                        Then Snavely, who has struggled in the 5th or 6th in every start but 1 leads off the bottom of the frame by walking the leadoff batter. Come on Shocks!

                          walks, walks, walks....walks, walks, walks
