Baseball Update -- Alex Wood and Joshua Fields

+

(Alex Woods' Twitter) Braves pitcher Alex Wood is happy to see that fellow Dawgs pitcher Joshua Fields has been promoted to the Boston Red Sox' AAA affiliate, Pawtucket. The next link below is to an article on Talking Chop that shows Wood's latest outing, this one for A-level Rome. "Alex Wood, SP: 5 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 8 K, 1.80 ERA Alex Wood sure intimidated the Intimidators tonight (I'll show myself out), dominating Kannapolis over 5 strong innings. Wood allowed only 3 baserunners, giving up 1 run but striking out a whopping 8 men. Wood doubled his previous (brief) career high of 4 Ks in a game, and now has 27 strikeouts in 30 professional innings." -Zeus12888 (TalkingChop author) http://www.talkingchop.com/2012/8/4/3219092/wood-tosses-a-beauty-ahmed-shows-off-his-speed-and-dodig-has-a-five

While only existing at the Division I level for two seasons and compiling an uninspiring 2-25 record in that time, the Bears' lacrosse program has a deadly bullet in the chamber -- its facility -- and the allure of a geographic location that doesn't involve snow squalls and road salt; this may draw some talent from the northeast and also serve as a flash point for some of the emerging talent in the south.

Mercer has hired a new lacrosse coach to go along with the Bears' new lacrosse facility. Meanwhile, we're fielding a club lacrosse team that's forced to use a rec sports facility and conducting bake sales to fund a baseball stadium expansion. What's wrong with this picture? Go 'Dawgs!
