This year I have typed this and this.
Against Little Rock yesterday, UTA had 10 hits to the Trojans six.
UTA had base runners in seven of nine innings.
UTA left seven runners in scoring position.
UTA held Little Rock scoreless in all but one inning.
UTA gives up two home runs, accounting for every Trojan run.
Like the other 12 losses where I've noticed this trend (one bad pitching inning and/or one missed hit away), UTA could have easily won. At a record of 23-24, UTA could easily be one of the top teams in the conference. As it is, a spot in the conference tournament is not guaranteed.
I wonder how long this can be tolerated. I'm beginning to expect this outcome, one where we come up just short, rather than thinking we are going to win. Sad.
