Fall Report: Ohio StateFall Report
With the return of the entire weekend rotation, several key bullpen pieces and six position in the lineup, the Buckeyes appear poised to contend for a Big Ten title and another post-season run in 2020. After three regional appearances in the past four seasons, Ohio State coach Greg Beals didn’t mince words as to what the team’s goals are for next year.
“We left Nashville last year with the mindset that we’re going to host a regional and we’re going win a regional”, said Beals. “Let’s get to a super-regional. Our push is to get into a three-game set to see who goes to Omaha. That’s the next step, and we need to get there.”
Although Ohio State came up short against eventual National Champion Vanderbilt last season, the season could hardly be classified as a disappointment. After an up and down start, the Buckeyes got hot down the stretch, winning seven of their final eight regular season games to get into the conference tournament, then leaned on some hot arms and got timely hits to win the Big Ten Tournament.
