by Barca Blog - After a stinging 5-4 loss to in-state rival Middle Tennessee, the Commodores have no choice but to shrug it off if they wish to stay in Louisville past Saturday. Just like last year in Tempe, VU will have to do it the hard way with four straight wins to make it to the super regional.
Head coach Tim Corbin commented on the 'Dores situation after Friday's defeat.
“We just need to put this game behind us. Our team knows that it’s a five-game tournament for us now, but you can’t look at that way when you get into Saturday’s game.
“We have enough pitching to last in this tournament. The MTSU game was obviously a tough loss because it was a one-run ballgame and we left a lot of runners in scoring position that we didn’t drive in.
“Saturday’s a fresh start and if we are meant to continue to play than we will have a good attitude.”
The 'Dores will take on Indiana, the Big Ten Tournament Champs, in today's elimination game at 2 p.m. CT inside Patterson Stadium. Follow the game here.
