Going into Saturday’s game, pitcher Jason Postill had something to prove. After starting 11-0 on the year, Jason’s last two starts had been rough. His last start in the conference tournament was his worst start of the year, and for someone who is so fired up to pitch, it was difficult for him to sit around and wait two weeks to get the chance to get back on the mound and prove himself!
Well, in the biggest game of my life, his life, and the programs history he came with his best stuff! The stage was set for a rematch against conference rival North Alabama, and Pensacola came out in full force! The stands were packed with the Argonaut faithful, and Postill gave them a great show!
After going down 1-0 in the top of the first, Dustin Lawley came up and blasted a two run bomb into the oak trees! Postill never looked back, and went into Lawn Care mode… mowing down North Alabama batters! The defense came ready to play as well, with a few spectacular plays made by gold glove shortstop Brandon Brewer! He’s been a solid catalyst at the Prime Time position all year!
We have been playing a great style of baseball throughout the tournament, keeping great energy during all parts of the game! The offense came ready to prove that the conference tournament was a fluke, and that we were ready to make a push to be the first team to dog pile on Jim Spooner Field!
The Argonauts are prime to make that a reality on Monday, when we play in the regional championship! Our pitchers are fresh, and whomever we play will be running on fumes, because they’ll have to eventually beat us twice on championship day! Its been a great four years for me at UWF, but nothing could be better than winning this regional in front of our fans and going to the College World Series… well… maybe one thing would be better, but you’ll have to stay tuned until next week to see how that ends up!
