Titan Connection - March 20 edition

Bryan Conant delivers against Pepperdine earlier this year
Since the last Titan post, none of the Cal State Fullerton HarbourCats have seen any action, but that's all about to change tonight when Bryan Conant "the Barbarian" - our six foot five inch tall, 220 pound lefty - takes the hill for his first start in the second game of a two game set against Nebraska.

CSF baseball (@BaseballTitans) just tweeted this tidbit of information, along with a picture of Mr. Conant's newly buzzed head. This is exciting news for Conant who has 4 appearances and 3 and a third innings of work so far this year. He enters the game with a 5.40 ERA and 1.61 WHIP - stats that are admittedly not that indicative of performance, given the small sample size.

If last night's game against the Cornhuskers was any indication (an 11-inning thriller won by CSF), tonight's game should also be a good one. The 'Huskers are only 6-12 and are hitting .235 as a team compared to 17-3 and .271 for the eighth ranked Titans so let's hope for many Nebraska zeroes and many crooked CSF numbers.

This is a great opportunity for the freshman Conant to show his stuff, not only to us (his summer hosts!) but to the Cal State bench bosses in charge of dolling out precious innings. He will be the sixth CSF pitcher to start this year, where they seem to have a pretty set four-man rotation. It would be EXCELLENT (said in best Mr. Burns voice) to see Conant have a solid outing.

Tonight's game is being streamed live at Big West TV if you want to check him out. Come on, take a lawn chair and your laptop out to your front porch so you get yourself warmed up for the balmy Victoria opener.

Here's hoping for a great start!
