School of Hard Knox

If there was ever a day to have a game start at 9:30 am, today was the day. About the time we were wrapping up our second-straight 10-1 victory, the rain started to fall. In fact, it is still raining. There will no doubt be a host of games canceled this afternoon. Nevertheless, we were able to play and play well.

Nate Arenson went 7.0 strong innings to pick up his second win of the season, allowing only one run on five hits while striking out six and walking only two. It was a similar performance to Tyler Herman's outing in game two of the Luther double-header. Arenson was good, the defense played well, even after one of the worst pre-game infield/outfield sessions I have ever seen, and the offense seems to be starting to click.

Matt Abraham had another three-hit performance, his second in as many games, giving him eight hits on the trip. Nick Robinson added three hits and Dan Scott scored a trio of runs. The top of the order of Robinson, Scott, and Abraham went a combined 7-for-13 with six runs scored and three driven in.

With the rain still coming down, the rest of the day will be spent in the hotel room until a team dinner later tonight. The Cards will take on D'Youville, NY tomorrow in a double-header. Check out http://twitter.com/thecoachscave for updates during the day.
