THIS is how the Dirtbags felt about their win today. Jonathan Carlos lets out a guttural yell after escaping a bases-loaded jam vs. Wake Forest.


Long Beach Completes Stunning Sweep of Wake Forest

At The Ballpark

LONG BEACH, Calif. — Pitch. Pitch. Pitch. That’s all these Dirtbags ever do.

And boy howdy, did they make minced-meat of what is probably one of the better batting orders in the country. Using four pitchers, the Dirtbags stifled the Demon Deacon bats to the tune of just four hits in a 6-0 Long Beach win.

Including Friday’s 6-3 win and Saturday’s 7-3 win, the Dirtbags held the power-hitting Deacons to 12 hits in 93 at-bats. That’s a .129 team average here at Blair Field this weekend.

When I introduced myself to Wake head coach Tom Walter he meekly replied, “Well I wish you could’ve met me when our team was hitting a little bit better.”

That was an understatement.  Remember that Wake had six of their top seven hitters from a year ago returning after they hit .290 with 77 home runs as a team. This game is strange man, just strange.
