I imagine the Beavers will be a pretty desperate squad, given that they've now slipped all the way into 9th place and their postseason hopes are really starting to flag. They've got a pretty distinct edge in pitching in this one, given that Stilley has not impressed since returning from a shoulder injury. The Cougs will likely need a surprisingly effective start from him to have a decent shot of winning this one.
If the Cougs lose this one, tomorrow will decide whether this was a successful weekend. But if they can somehow win today? Tomorrow becomes absolute gravy.
I like gravy.
