    Buckeyes (33-17, 13-8 B1G) and Bearcats (26-24, 11-10 AAC) to play at 11 a.m. Tuesday in Cincinnati

    COLUMBUS, Ohio
    The Ohio State baseball team opens its final week of the regular season with its final midweek game, traveling south to play at Cincinnati Tuesday. First pitch between the Buckeyes and Bearcats is set for 11 a.m. ET from Marge Schott Stadium. The midweek contest will be the Bearcats’ annual Education Day at the ball park with local schools in attendance.


    The Bearcats are 26-24 overall and 11-10 in conference action. Last time out, Cincinnati claimed a 4-3 upset over No. 10 East Carolina May 11, but fell the final two games of the series in Greenville, N.C. ECU hit a walk-off single in the ninth despite trailing 5-1 through seven frames and won, 6-5. The Bearcats are hitting .251 as a team with 79 doubles and 43 home runs. Manny Rodriguez is batting .302 with 14 doubles, three ripples and 10 home runs. On the mound, Cincinnati holds a 4.38 team ERA.

    Ohio State is 69-42-2 all-time vs. Cincinnati. The Buckeyes fell to the Bearcats, 7-1, in Columbus in 2017. Ohio State shut out the Bearcats, 6-0, in the last meeting at Marge Schott Stadium during the 2015 campaign.

    Well, that couldn’t have gone any worse. Pretty embarrassing.. 14-4 and we essentially quit in the 7th. I get that we have to travel to East Lansing for a game Thursday and it’s prettty hot today....just not a good look,imo.

    Was hoping for a better offensive performance but only managed 4 hits. Pitching was what it has been midweek...lots of hit batters, walks, and surrendering bases loaded XBH. We’ve been giving up a lot of those bases clearing hits the last month.

    That’s 45 runs allowed in our last 4 midweek games. That doesn’t bode well for the post season when pitching depth will be tested.

    Midweek games are killing us. We’ve been giving up the ground we gain on weekends by losing midweek. Today’s loss may not cost us too bad it appears. Big group 1 road wins by Minnesota and Indiana have helped offset some of the damage done by our loss.

    Sparty got pounded by CMU today, but they played Minnesota tough last weekend. They’ll be fighting for their B1G tournament lives this weekend, so they’ll be motivated for sure. We should be too because this series is every bit as big for us. A series loss to a 200+ RPI team would likely put us in bubble territory per Boyd’s RPI needs report. Going into the B10 tourney needing to win a couple games to get off the bubble is the last place we want to be.

    Despite today, Our resume is still at large worthy and we’re comfortably in at the moment, but again....history has shown us that we can’t breathe easy until the very end...we’ve blown a few at large bids the last 8 years. :smash:
