It’s a big weekend of baseball at Eck Stadium with South Florida visiting. Shocker broadcast voices Shane Dennis and Denning Gerig give us the scouting report on USF lefty Shane McClanahan, who is expected to go early in the first round of the June draft. Wichita State’s pitching rotation is unsettled and freshman Tyler Davis is working his way up the chart after last weekend’s performance. We discuss Wichita State’s NCAA at-large resume, which is strong in key areas and weak in others. Can the Shockers win their way back into the picture? We discuss Luke Ritter’s bounce-back junior season and Bohm’s candidacy for the Golden Spikes Award. We wrap up by reminiscing about former Shocker Darren Dreifort, the 1993 Golden Spikes winner, who celebrated a birthday last week.
Shane Dennis of KFH and Wichita State baseball TV/radio joins Paul Suellentrop to discuss the Shockers 17-4 record and road trip to East Carolina. They discuss the pitching staff and how the decision for many of them to skip summer baseball worked. Who is the better Liam Eddy comp – Tim Kelley or A.J. Ladwig? Who are the young position players most likely to grow into bigger roles? Where do third baseman Alec Bohm and centerfielder Greyson Jenista fit in recent Shocker history?
