The TAMIU baseball team is looking to make a little history of their own this weekend as their magic number to make the Heartland Conference tournament sits at two. That means any combination of two TAMIU wins or two Newman loses will clinch the 2nd ever postseason berth in the programs history. The task will not be an easy one though as the Dustdevils hit the road to take on a St. Edwards team that swept them in Laredo. Despite that the guys are confident they can go to Austin and get the job done.
"Last time we faced them i don't think we saw enough pitches. We swung and helped them out by swinging at balls and i think if we focus and swing at strikes we'll be alright." (Fernie Garza, Dustdevil right-fielder)
"We've been preparing ourselves very well for this weekend. This is the last weekend which will determine the tournament for us. If we pitch like we have been and the hitters are a little more consistent, i think we have a good chance to make the tournament." (Manolo Mendoza, Dustdevil pitcher)
Game one of tomorrows doubleheader is scheduled for 1:30 pm and can be followed live on the godustdevils.com.
