1-0 bottom 3, with Sibley on 2nd and no outs, would love to see us get a run or two here...

Sibley scores on ground out, 2-0 after 3...close games like this make me nervous.

Looks like Sibley went 2-3 tonight and scored 2 runs. If he keeps getting on base this much I do think our scoring will improve though I still feel that the team's scoring issues aren't on his shoulders right now.

When a lead off guy is hitting .240 and the team is struggling to score runs, it is on the lead off man. I agree that he is not the only guy hitting poorly but, if he can get hot I think we see a dramatic improvement in offensive production.
I also think that if Sibs can get on base, a lot of the other guys in the order will start hitting the ball. For over 150 years one of the best hitters on a ball club has hit in the 1 hole. There is a reason for that. A team goes as the lead off hitter goes.

I feel this is a huge victory for the Cats. Need to go for the sweep tomorrow. Is State back on track?

This is what I posted in the game 1 thread about it.
Originally posted by sweat64: Last 10 games Sibley by my count is 10/34 from the plate good for a .294 battting average. With 6 walks, 2 HBP and 1 sac fly that puts his OBP over these last 10 games at .441.
The good news: If my math was correct, currently (before 2nd UCA game) Sibley is hitting .042 points better in the last 10 games than on the season and reaching base .102 points better.
The bad news: With Sibley playing drastically better, in those 10 games Texas State is 3-7 and averaging 2.7 runs/game in that stretch.
Quick analysis: Lately Sibley hasn't been the problem.
It worries me that Sibley has been hitting decent (and getting on base at a pretty good clip) lately and we still aren't scoring runs.

Sam is a juggernaut!
This shows how much work Texas State still has left. They need to close out the UCA series with a win and take advantage of a pretty favorable schedule from here on out. Would hate to see them go into the final series against the Demons without having a berth already wrapped up.
