If you call a 1.049 OPS "pretty good" lol. He's been by far our best hitter. Very big blow. But, getting Carter back is just as important. He controls the other team's running game at an elite level, and takes very good AB's. I have to admit, I was impressed with the job Colin did behind the plate over the weekend. WV was determined to run on him at almost every chance, and he continually gunned them down.
Actually meant that jokingly. He’s is having a great season. Big time growth offensively over a year ago. Shortened his swing, let’s the ball travel more, and he has become a good hitter. Because he has learned to go with the pitch he is very dangerous because with his size, he’s a threat to hit any pitching mistake out to any part of the park.

you guys lost a game 1 to a very good pitcher. Baseball scouts say he'll go in top half 1st round.
last night he struck out 15 as WVU shut out number 11 Texas tech.

WVU bc cold weather cant practice outside until much later than most, so its baseball team typically starts slow and then builds mo.

WVU isnt a baseball school though, although it can play role of spoiler at times.

Losing to WVU shouldn’t happen.

Bleeding? I’m confused. You’re right bad games happen Chief. Tell me the last time an OSU team was out hit 17-3 on their home field?

Here is another nugget for you - against the three best teams this pitcher has faced (OU, Baylor, and Oregon State) he is 0-3 and gave up a total of 11 earned runs in those games. I would think you would agree the Cowboys are at that same level, so I guess OSU batters were just blinded by his brilliance.

Keep living in fantasy land Chief.


Manoah Adds Second National Pitcher of the Week Honor

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – For the second time in the last three weeks, West Virginia University junior right-handed starter Alek Manoah has been named the National Pitcher of the Week by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA).

Manoah is the second Mountaineer in program history to be recognized with NCBWA weekly accolades twice in the same season, joining left-handed pitcher Harrison Musgrave, who was honored twice in 2013.

Manoah also earned the Golden Spikes Award/D1Baseball.com Performance of the Week award for the third consecutive week, USA Baseball announced today. Yesterday, he was named the Big 12 Pitcher of the Week and the WVU Student-Athlete of the Week for a third consecutive week and one of Collegiate Baseball's National Players of The Week for the second week in a row.

For the second consecutive start, Manoah struck out 15 batters in a complete-game shutout. In WVU's 1-0, walk-off win against Kansas on April 20, he once again did not walk a batter and allowed just three hits.

Against KU, Manoah matched his career high with 15 strikeouts, set a week before, as he became the first Mountaineer in program history to strike out 15 batters in a complete-game shutout in back-to-back weeks. He is the fourth player in WVU history with multiple 15-strikeout games in the same season, and the first since John Radosevich struck out 17 once and 16 twice in 1965.

As Manoah extended his shutout streak to 31.2 consecutive innings, he earned his team-leading sixth win of the season with his eighth quality start in 10 starts this year.

The Miami native struck out two batters in an inning four times and struck out three in the first. He had at least one strikeout in every inning and retired 12 in a row beginning in the second inning. He added four perfect 1-2-3 innings.

Manoah was the lone Big 12 pitcher to notch more than 10 strikeouts and the only one to not walk a batter in more than 5.1 innings pitched last week.

On the season, Manoah leads the Big 12 in nearly every statistical category. He is No. 6 nationally with 95 strikeouts, No. 7 with a 0.80 WHIP, No. 13 with two complete games and No. 19 with 5.30 hits allowed per nine innings. He also leads the Big 12 with a 1.81 ERA, six wins, 69.2 innings pitched, two shutouts and a .170 opponent batting average, while he is second with one home run allowed.

From April 8-9, Manoah was named the NCBWA National Pitcher of the Week, Big 12 Pitcher of the Week and earned the Golden Spikes Award/D1Baseball.com Performance of the Week award after he struck out 11 batters in 8.0 shutout innings in a series-opening victory at then-No. 23 Oklahoma State on April 5.

The following week, in a complete-game shutout against then-No. 11 Texas Tech on April 12, Manoah struck out a career-high 15 batters and held the Big 12's highest-scoring offense to four hits with no walks in WVU's 2-0, series-opening victory. He was recognized as the Big 12 Pitcher of the Week and named the Golden Spikes Award/D1Baseball.com Performance of the Week award winner for the second consecutive week.

Manoah's performances have helped the Mountaineers to series wins each week, as West Virginia has won four consecutive weekend series and 10 of its last 13 games.

Anyone else find it funny that @Nolaeer was so wrong about basketball this year, then goes on to rag on Randy Mazey, and now he has his team in position to host a regional? Some of us on here tried to tell you he was a good coach. lol, wrong again Nolaeer.
I never said he was a "bad" coach, i said it's time to produce. WVU built a new stadium and has invested a lot in sports like baseball and wrestling, with little to nothing to show for it.

What I said is he's had 7 years and zero big 12 titles or cws appearances and that is unacceptable. WVU may have the nation's best pitcher, hopefully mazey can parlay that into a big 12 title.

DH wasnt a bad football coach, but no one shed any tears when he left bc he never won big 12 titles and WVU is used to winning titles.

Well, it's true what you say, but WVU baseball didnt really exist prior to big 12. It was final straw to why mizzou got in SEC over WVU. WVU's old baseball field didnt have a locker room. opposing teams had to change clothes on bus and they couldnt shower.

So, yeah WVU basically had no baseball team prior to joining big 12. Oliver Luck, however, spent a lot of money to change all that, which included building a top notch baseball stadium. So yes, WVU had no expectations whatsoever 7 years ago, but those expectations have changed with new stadium.

Same with wrestling. before big 12 it was in a gym and rain actually came in door and got on mats. Luck built a state of the art wrestling venue to improve WVU's wrestling program, which has yet to pay any dividends.

You got your brand new stadium in 2016. You guys had a strong case for the NCAA Tournament in 2016, and IMO, got screwed by the NCAA (it happens), then he took you guys back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in forever in 2017, and now you guys are sitting in a good spot to host a regional in 2019. You said time for Mazey to produce. He's been producing all along. Sheesh, this is like talking baseball with an OU fan, they don't know jack about their own program......

Your wrestling coach has had one season... just chill. He'll get y'all to being a consistent top 15 program if you give him a couple of years. No matter how good the facilities are, Penn State and Pitt will probably be better, so you need to sell those guys in the Pittsburgh area on coming down to Morgantown to compete and build something.

Your best finish at the tournament ever is 9th... You can't get much worse. Cycling through coaches isn't going to make it better.
