You can watch the game Live-Stream by going to GoDucks.com, and then to Baseball.  Scroll down the schedule and on this day...click on the "Watch" link.  Fun!  And Axel....you are beginning to create a fan-base of your own!  (Count me in!)

Yep.  Jacob Hughes has come in now a couple of times during the week, started (vs. Portland and Gonzaga) and done well.  What I hoping is that USF doesn't have great pitching depth after playing a three-game series last weekend at Portland, and our bats make it a comfortable set of games.
