WVU Drops Backyard Brawl

GRANVILLE, W.Va. – KC Huth might make Sportscenter with his diving catch in centerfield, but West Virginia didn't have much else to hang their hats on. The Mountaineers dropped their 25th loss of the season to a weak Pittsburgh team, and are now in serious trouble of making the Big 12 Tournament.

A lot of #SCTop10's were mentioned on Twitter after KC Huth made a tremendous diving catch in centerfield. Coach Randy Mazey said it was one of the best catches you'll see at any level of baseball - check our twitter page to see the catch. Sadly, the spectacle was overshadowed by a crushing defeat to Pittsburgh (19-31). The Mountaineers had plenty of opportunities including runners on second and third in both the seventh and eighth inning, but never capitalized.

Kyle Davis produced the most offense of the day. The freshman finished 3-for-5, and scored WVU's only run. Davis said this weekend is the biggest weekend of the year, as it is their last chance to get into the Big 12 Tournament. The top eight teams from the conference make the contest. As of now they are tied via record with Kansas at 7-13, but the Jayhawks own the tiebreaker.

Mazey's postseason hopes are dwindling, and he knows it. The question is whether or not the rest of his team knows what this weekend's final series against Texas Tech means? The coach said his team knows what is at stake, but they need to practice hard this week, and mentally prepare themselves.
