Owls drop a tough one to Oregon state today 6-4.  FAU could not overcome falling into a 6-0 hole as starting pitcher Mike Gipson wasn’t hit hard but just gave up too many bloop base hits and the offense could not recover.  Here is the audio from the post game press conference with Gipson and shortstop Nick Delguidice along with head coach John McCormack.

BASEBALL POSTGAME – FAU vs. South Alabama (SBC Tourney Day 2)

May 28, 2010

Another day, another nailbiter for the Owls.  FAU managed to blow a 10-4 lead but held on for a 10-9 victory over South Alabama on day two of the tournament.  The good news, the Owls are sitting pretty and are guaranteed a spot on championsip Saturday.  The bad news, the bullpen continues to struggle, as Bernal and Boyer allowed five runs in the final two innings, but Bernie got the final out to secure the victory.

Despite this not being an official game, it was worthy noting what head coach John McCormack had to say on the pregame show in the Owls first game in six days on Tuesday against UCF.  Despite the massive thunderstorm  that put a halt to things in the top of the 4th with FAU on top 4-3, Coach Mac got a decent look at his guys and liked what he saw.  Here is what he and Jared Smith chatted about on the pregame interview…
