Mazey didn't use that as an excuse, and noted that WVU baserunning errors and Marshall's hitting and were keys to the win.

"They just beat us. We made a couple of baserunning mistakes that cost us some runs early in the game. It wasn't their bullpen, that was their weekend starters out there. That's what they do, and they pitched better than we did."

Matt Frazer got a rare start in the field, and played well in left, tracking down two deep balls near the wall and playing another off the barrier flawlessly. He said he enjoyed the chance, but noted that the key now is to get as much rest as possible before the Oklahoma State series begins on Thursday.
