USC Morning Buzz: Baseball Improves To 5-0

Timmy Robinson’s two-run single in the ninth propelled the USC baseball team past North Dakota State, 4-3. It’s very, very early in the season but so far USC’s pitching looks like it could keep the Trojans competitive this season.

    It is still extremely early, as USC only has one win against a likely tournament team in CSU Fullerton (and midweek games are notoriously poor indicators of team talent since they usually involve pitchers well down the depth chart). But what’s good in this club right now is the ability to win close games (like the marathon one against Northwestern) and how the team Barkley’ed their way last night, down 3-0, and then scoring four times in the last three innings to come back. A 2 out walk-off hit showed some real grit. (Yes I included the Barkley reference to see if Bucket or any of his pseudonyms start their Pavlovian drooling and respond).
    Granted, North Dakota State had started their season last night, and because of the weather hadn’t even played outside for months. The Trojans were aided by a couple of killer errors in the 9th by the Bison. But Robinson’s game winner came after Garrett Stubbs had popped out with the bases loaded and one out (and Stubbs has been the Trojans best hitter this year). Robinson picks him up and gets the win.
    Dan Hubbs’ team is showing some signs of life. It’s not enough to get excited, but 6-0 sure as heck beats 0-5.

    Did Fred Lynn make the line up?

    I seem to remember another USC sport who charged out of the gate like Secratariat…..oh who was it….oh yes, BASKETBALL.

    But then when the Pac 12 started, they collapsed like a two-dollar beach chair trying to hold up a fat guy.
