Seven days off results in some significant lineup changes for WSU. Cody Lassley will hit second as a reward for his eight-game hitting streak. Ryan Jones is batting sixth. Chance Sossamon will start at third for the second straight game. I thought he looked very good defensively and that may help against Creighton’s bunts. Chris O’Brien will DH. Bret Bascue is in left and Ryan Engrav in right.
Future Shocker Garrett Bayliff is playing in the Class 4A tournament in Oklahoma.
Ex-Shocker Andy Dirks is moving up in the Tigers organization.
