Frogs vs. New Mexico Tonight at 9

TCU opens the conference tournament tonight against 6th seeded New Mexico, who beat 3rd seeded BYU in 11 innings yesterday to become the lowest seed to advance which earns them a date with the Frogs tonight. TCU is fresh off a sweep of New Mexico where they exploded for 46 runs over the 3 game set, and they will not have to face UNM's #1 starter Rudy Jaramillo (no clue if he's related to the former Ranger hitting coach, but I'll just assume he is). The starting pitcher is yet to be named, but I'll assume it's Purke tonight, albeit on a limited pitch count (probably around 60-70 if I had to guess). I was planning on doing an elaborate look at our pitching depth for the tournament, since the injury bug or rest bug seems has set in again just when we though we were getting healthy, as ace Kyle Winkler will be unavailable this week. Also, I'm still not sure about the availability of Steven Maxwell, who we haven't seen in over a month. Good news for me and the readers is that I don't have to go into detail on the whole ordeal, because our friend David Peterson at already took an in-depth look at the pitching breakdown, and he's far more knowledgeable on the situation than we are over here.
