UWF baseball surging

A surging University of West Florida (UWF) baseball team is playing at home the next two weekends. After a slow start, the Argos have really found a groove.

UWF baseball started the season with high expectations, but the early results weren't so good. They lost eight of their first 13 games.

They've clearly figured it out - winning 13 of their last 14 games.

An explosive offense is leading the way, the Argos are now averaging over 10 runs a game in that stretch.

Moving senior Nic Strasser to the leadoff spot has been a catalyst.

The momentum will be tested. Strasser broke his hand on Wednesday and will be out for four to six weeks.

Coach Jeff Coat's inspirational speech comes with a tactical move.

Junior college transfer Matthew Jones will take over the leadoff spot.

The shortstop is on a tear at the plate himself - his 380 average now leads the team.

The Argos' pitching staff has been solid, going with an unconventional all lefty starts on the weekends. The group will be led by junior transfer Dylan Mill-Derouen. A no-hitter three weeks ago is part of his stellar numbers.

A great chance to keep the momentum going with home conference series the next two weekends. It starts Saturday against Alabama-Huntsville.
