Three more runs would eventually come across for the 49ers before all was said and done, and FIU would miss their shot at winning the first C-USA series of the season.
Turtle Thomas didn’t hang his head too low after the series finale, as he told student media that Loyola Marymount “can execute better than any team we’ll play all year”.
After splitting both games from the business week, FIU looked towards the weekend to make things a little better. The Seton Hall Pirates made the trip from New Jersey to Sweetwater to take on the Panthers.
The Panthers were overwhelmed and outplayed by a team we’ll likely be hearing a lot more from in the next couple months, in Ole Miss.
The Panthers’ milkshake menu features returning right-handers Andres Nunez, Williams Durruthy, Cody Crouse, Robby Kalaf, Garrett Cave, and Chris Mourelle. They’ll also be bringing back the left-hander, Dominic Lobrutto.
The question is, can this new, fun and exciting option fill the hole left in the belly of the Panthers, now that they’ve lost their fish? Or will the gimmick of a couple junior college transfers fall short of satisfying the FIU faithful, and their winning tastes, alike?
