West Virginia baseball had a jam-packed and successful week on the diamond in Morgantown, which will have skipper Randy Mazey riding high in this week’s WVU Coaches Show — but, as he says, there is still some work to do.
This week, we’ll take a look across Mountaineer sports — namely, an update on the beginning of the Neal Brown era, and a recap of the winning week for the baseball ‘Eers.
The Mountaineers began their conference campaign with a trio of losses at Baylor, and continued that with a loss in the first matchup against 19th-ranked Oklahoma. We’ll see how the Mountaineers were able to turn it around against the Sooners to nab the last two games of the series.
“You don’t want to get too far behind the 8-ball in this league, so we needed to get back into it, and you can’t win two until you win one,” Mazey said. “So we’re just taking it one game at a time.”
The Backyard Brawl made its return to the Monongalia County Ballpark on Wednesday, and this year’s matchup showed that the rivalry is still alive and well. In front of a program-record crowd of 3,487, the Mountaineers were able to edge out Pitt 5-4. In this week’s WVU Coaches Show, we’ll relive WVU Baseball’s 108th win over the Panthers.
WVIllustrated sat down with Coach Mazey to get his thoughts on this season — form the performance of the young Mountaineer bullpen, the bounce-back to take the series against the Sooners, a preview of Oklahoma State and much more!
