The Golden Eagles will play on Tuesday at Eck Stadium. It’s not a game with a whole lot of meaning, but the Shockers need to play. They didn’t have a mid-week game last week. I don’t think you want to go into the MVC Tournament with six games in two weeks. I’m guessing Mateychick will start, and we will see plenty of bullpen arms.
I’m most interested to see Tyler Fleming or Clint McKeever in a pressure situation. I’m sure Fleming will pitch after not throwing over the weekend. He has the makeup and arm to help WSU, if he can get his new sidearm delivery sharpened up. Same goes for McKeever, who hasn’t pitched much this season. Up to this point, they’ve pitched in low-stress situations.
