It’s the bottom of the fifth, bases loaded, ORU is down by two. Cam Schiller steps up to bat and a few pitches later hits into a double play.
Although ORU would score a run in the inning, it would be held to three and give up six, losing April 17 to the University of Oklahoma and falling to 17-18 on the season. This year, ORU has underperformed as a whole, while at times flashing moments of brilliance that fans are accustomed to seeing.
Outside the conference, ORU is 13-15 while within the Summit League the squad is 4-3. Although neither record is horrible, some feel that ORU has underperformed this season. The main example is the team’s offense, which is hot and cold from one game to the next.
The Golden Eagles have 14 games where they scored 2 or less runs (1-13); but have 13 games where they scored more than 6 (13-0). ORU is swinging for the fences, which can reap benefits or dig a grave.
