Down But Not Out

Ross Vance and Ryan McBroom were obviously disappointed with West Virginia's 9-4 loss to Baylor on Friday, but the pair also kept their hopes up concerning a possible NCAA bid and their futures in baseball.

Vance, who was clearly upset with his performance, said he didn't have his best pitches at his command in the defeat. While he wouldn't say it, he didn't receive much support from his West Virginia teammates, who managed just two hits off Baylor freshman starter Nick Lewis through six innings of play.

Vance also described the pitches on which he gave up a pair of solo home runs, and discussed WVU's chances for an NCAA bid and his return to anchor the starting rotation in 2015.

There aren't any second chances for senior first baseman Ryan McBroom, but he expressed no regrets at having passed up a shot at pro ball for a final year at West Virginia. He detailed some of the improvements, both on and off the field, that he made in coming back for his last year, and also expressed his thoughts on WVU's chances for the postseason.
