The Frogs are now 11-1 at Lupton Stadium this season after beginning their current 5-game homestand with a 10-3 victory over UTA Tuesday night. They'll look to continue getting back on track tonight when they kick off a three-game home series against San Diego State at 6:30.
Coach Schlossnagle has, for the second consecutive weekend, tinkered with his weekend starting pitching rotation for this series. Matt Purke will be on the mound tonight, Kyle Winkler tomorrow and Steven Maxwell on Saturday. At least that's the plan. Mother Nature could have some effect on this series, as there is a decent chance of severe weather on Friday (although current forecasts have it clearing by the evening).
For those of you that are not yet aware, San Diego State's head coach is Tony Gwynn. Yes, that Tony Gwynn. It'll be cool to have a Hall of Famer on campus this weekend, and here is a video of Gwynn discussing the career (and more) of another HOF'er from our childhood:
(I'm well aware that wasn't even actually funny)
