After a good start, Wichita State's West Coast baseball swing is in danger of turning into a nightmare.
The Shockers (10-3) play a two-game series at Arizona (11-4) beginning tonight. After an 8-0 win the series opener at Long Beach State, WSU committed nine errors in two losses.
"Long Beach State capitalized on every mistake that we made, and we made plenty," WSU coach Gene Stephenson said on the school's athletic Web site. "We have not played well, and that's unfortunate because I really thought that we were capable of coming out here and winning."
Arizona has won six straight after sweeping Northern Colorado over the weekend. The Wildcats lost two games to Long Beach State earlier in the season. They have not played a road game.
WSU has lost two in a row for the first time this season.
"We need to play the way we're capable of playing, and play with some confidence," Stephenson said.
