Ryan Tezak turned in the best performance of the pitchers Mazey sent to the mound, hurling two innings and allowing just one walk while aborting a potential Morehead State rally that looked promising. With runners on second and third and no one out in the third inning, he recorded a strikeout and a double play to get out of the inning.
That was the highlight of the evening for the staff, though, as they allowed five runs on nine hits and seven walks. Add in two hit batters, and control was not the watchword for most of those taking the hill. Still, Mazey liked the fact that a number of players got some work in, while none threw so much that the would be unavailable this weekend for the Texas series.
Designated hitter Matt Frazer broke out of some of the struggles that he has gone through in Charleston with a booming double in the second inning. He drove in two runs and scored two more, and admitted that he might have been trying to do too much when playing near his home in the southern part of the state.
