Sorce has a good start, and in bottom of 1st, Troy has two men on, no outs.

Disappointing results after getting two on with no one out in the first inning. Left both on. 0-0

Defensive aggressiveness by Troy the last two days have resulted in big innings for the opponents.

Not being critical but we are not a sound defensive team. We have won with offense for the most part and 2 good pitchers. I think we have room to improve defensively for next season.

We are ranked 6th in the country in fielding percentage, and we are ranked 5th in the country in fewest errors committed.

We are one of the BEST defensive teams in the country. That's why it's so puzzling why we are attempting illogical defensive plays.

I stand corrected then. I was more referring to several games we lost on errors...droped fly ball etc. Could be pressure of trying to win, anyway, we won the conference and got to regionals. Hopefully some day we get over that hump to make the Super's.

Wow! What a win! And how great is it to eliminate Bama?

It doesn't get any easier though. In an hour and a half, we gotta play FSU again. So eat your snacks, and get back to the TV/Computer/Stadium for the next game.

What a win. I wanted to give up a couple of times, glad the players are not like me. Great job by our players and coaches. If nothing else, we ended Bama's season and that makes me smile very big.

They seem to be a bit upset with their HC Gaspard. I agree with them, in that the way their pitcher was struggling, someone should have visited the mound. But, it was to the benefit of our Trojans, so I'm happy. I do feel bad for the kid pitching though, because he was left out there with no one to come talk to him or anything to break the momentum we had.

Poor coaching on Bama's part, but an entire team effort on Troy's part. I think everyone but the bat boys played in that game.

That's what I figured, and I think it's the right call, We may have to use 3-4 pitchers tonight, and again tomorrow after we win tonight.

McCain threw 6 innings the first game. I am guessing if Tate gets in trouble they bring him in.

Frankly, Gaspard's coaching in this game was some of the worst I've ever seen. Any high school coach worth a grain of salt would've used the opportunity to visit his pitcher to break tempo, calm the kid down and give another pitcher some warm up time to come in. Bama's pitcher can't be blamed for this one. TROY was sitting on pitch counts waiting for strikes while Gaspard hung his kid out in the wind.

Agree 100% how can you leave a kid in after he gave up a couple of runs and hit the first of two in the inning. Poor coaching, proud our guys didn't give up! Anyone know the channel on Direct TV?

Both of these wins were extremely exciting and fun, buT just think of the impact they can have on recruiting. Especially in state!! A lot of baseball fans and players had the opportunity to watch Troy take two games on a national stage from Alabama. Those games carry much more weight than a Wednesday night game in Tuscaloosa!

Weekday pitchers.

And I think beating them twice on national tv in a NCAA tourney weighs MUCH more.

Why not put the scores up - Beating Bama- TWICE - in the NCAA tournament is about as big as any football Victory we have ever had. Coming from behind in the bottom of the 9th by scoring 4 runs - it's like a Mastercard Commercial - Priceless.

Those clutch hit s should be played on the Video Board at every home football game with the call by Barry or the ESPN guy. You can't put a value on it.

March on Trojans!

I hope we are not that small time, where our best is two wins over a mediocre Bama team.

While I don't see a need to put the score up anywhere, I disagree with your statement that Alabama is a mediocre team. They were an at large bid into the NCAA tournament with a higher RPI than us by about 10-12 numbers. Why minimize Troy's two victories in the tournament, over a good team, by calling them mediocre?

The wins were great for Troy, I celebrating them.

I disagree that we should put banners up over two wins over a Bama team that was mediocre history wise for them. They were 34-25 and had a losing record in conference 14-15. Why would we put banners up over a couple of wins over a mediocre team.

anytime a $15,000,000 beats a $90,000,000 budget - its a great thing - period
Bama should beat us - but we beat them in tournament when it matters and we came from behind in the final at bat

and

Any win over an SEC opponent is big

I don't think Bama should have beat us. We have the better proven talent and leadership. The Sunbelt validated itself as a tough baseball conference and the tv pundits agreed. This team was made as hard as pig iron last season when it ran through that gauntlet of incredible injuries. I've seen some great teams over the years but this team will be one of those special ones.
