UHV Baseball Preview & STJ Baseball Wins

Posted: Updated:

UHV baseball starts a big conference home weekend series Friday. The Jaguars have lost ten in a row. Last weekend, UHV was swept in Red River play at Jarvis Christian. I asked two Haguars how tough that series was. Said pitcher Nate Pena, "It's like Coach Puhl said, that in this game you have to have a thin skin. You have to keep moving forward as your season progresses." Said outfielder Zak Vela, "We just have to get our heads in the game, start seeing pitches, hitting them deep, playing our game how we usually do." 
UHV baseball starts a three-game Red River series against the University Of The Southwest. It starts at Riverside with a single game Friday afternoon at 2:00.

St. Joe baseball improves to 7-11 on the season with a Thursday night road win. The Flyers win at Austin St. Stephen's, 10-1. Matthew Janak tosses a four-hitter with six strikeouts. Alex Angerstein goes 3-for-4 with three runs scored and two RBI's.Eight days before opening day, Jake Arrieta made his first appearance for the Philadelphia Phillies.
Arrieta allowing two runs that included Miguel Cabrera's solo homer during a 6-2 loss to the Detroit Tigers.
He struck out two and walked none, throwing 31 pitches over two innings. He gave up three hits.
Arrieta and the Phillies finalized a $75 million, three-year contract on March 12, a deal that could be worth up to $135 million over five seasons. Aaron Nola will start the March 29 opener at Atlanta, and it is not clear whether Arrieta will take a turn in the first time through the rotation.Three more major league teams are emphasizing life in the fast line - for fans.
Atlanta, Oakland and Seattle will open express entrances to members of CLEAR, expanding the fast-entry lanes to nine of the 30 big league ballparks.
CLEAR is used at 24 U.S. airports to speed passage through security and opened at Yankee Stadium and Coors Field in 2015. It expanded to Marlins Park and Citi Field the following season and added Detroit's Comerica Park in 2017.
CLEAR is available for a $179 annual fee, with discounted prices for members of Delta's SkyMiles program. The company plans to experiment this year in Washington state with biometric identification of fingertips that prove age verification for alcohol purchase and hopes at some point to use fingertip identification for stadium entry.
