    Definitely especially in today's game.

    Gophers lose game 1 but the bigger concern tonight is if we lost Max Meyer for more than just this weekend. Wasn't a good view on BTN+ but Max was going to back up a throw home and next thing you notice he is laying on the ground and looked like grabbing at his left knee. It happened with 2 outs in the 1st inning and Siebert definitely fell silent. He was helped off and I did see him back in the dugout later in the game with crutches. Definitely hoping that it wasn't something serious and more just a scare but very worried that it is more than that just based on reaction.
    Gophers just gave Maryland way too many base runners definitely 10+ between walks, hit batters, and errors. Have to tighten things up and be sharper than that at this time of the season if you expect to win games.

    Nice win to even the series. Patrick Fredrickson made his return to the rotation as the BTN announcers said Sam Thoresen had to be scratched but didn't really elaborate. Fredrickson was really solid and has been each of his last few outings. Gophers finally strung together some hits scoring 4 runs in the 1st to jump out to the lead and then another 4 in the 8th after Maryland had cut the lead to 2. The announcers did say Max Meyer's injury is a sprained left ankle so the good thing I guess is it wasn't a knee but sprained ankles can be pretty tricky too and they didn't really mention when or if he could possibly be back.

    Great to see Fredrickson working his back. The Meyer injury happened when he stepped on a bat running to back up home. Interesting it turned out to be his ankle as he was grabbing his knee when he went down. Brother and family were at the game and saw it happen.

    Gophers win 2-1 over Maryland to win the series. Gophers scored 2 in the 4th on a Jack Wassel double, a Jordan Kozicky walk, a Easton Bertrand sac fly, and a Drew Hmielewski single and then the offense really didn't do anything the rest of the game. Josh Culliver got the win pitching really solid and getting out of a jam or two. Ryan Duffy went 2.1 innings escaping trouble once with a couple strikeouts and 3 total for the day. Brett Schulze picked up the save although it was definitely shaky. Fastball command wasn't there right away as pitches were up and Maryland took advantage of it as they got a leadoff homerun followed by a double and a hit batter. The next batter got up 3-0 showing bunt but then couldn't get the bunt down as he took the 3-0 pitch, fouled off the 3-1, and Schulze painted the inside corner at the knees for strike 3. A 3 pitch strikeout and groundout followed to allow the Gophers to escape with the win.

    Haven't seen Meyer update. Anybody know what they are looking at?

    I don't expect to hear a word about Meyers until he shows up to pitch. The team certainly never disclosed anything about Fredrickson's progress and eventual return.

    Gophers list their probables for the Northwestern series as Fredrickson, TBD, and Culliver. Hopefully Thoresen is ready to go and make that start Friday. I think the ideal scenario if everyone is getting healthy would be to start Fredrickson, Thoresen, and Culliver for the Northwestern series and use Meyer in a relief outing. Then you can bring Meyer back to start game 1 of the B1G tournament and he is well rested and all the other starters could stay on normal rest for the B1G tournament then too.

    Gophers jumped on Northwestern early and held on. The game started with a triple from Riley Smith followed by doubles from Zack Raabe and Eddie Estrada and then a 2 run home run from Eli Wilson. Jack Wassel added a solo home run with 1 out to make it 5-0. The Gophers hit everything hard in the 1st inning and after singles from Easton Bertrand and Drew Hmielewski it looked like they were going to add on more as Riley Smith sent a frozen rope to center but it was right at the outfielder. Gophers did have some very hard it balls the rest of the game as well but Northwestern was very good defensively and a little lucky and there were times the Gophers just left a couple on. Patrick Fredrickson got the win and Brett Schulze picked up a 2 out save but in between Nick Lackney was really good after a rough start to his outing. After Lackney was able to get out of the 5th where he allowed a couple hits and a couple runners to come in as well as a walk he went 3 shutout innings and was really in command striking out 5 and allowing just 1 more hit the rest of the way. Max Meyer did travel but is still in the walking boot and not dressed. Will be interesting to see if Sam Thoresen is able to make the start tomorrow after being scratched last weekend.

    A 7 run 5th inning did the Gophers in today. Ryan Duffy made his first career start and he was solid. Made a couple mistakes and didn't get some help from his defense making his numbers look worse than he really pitched. Jake Stevenson came on to try to escape the bases loaded nobody out jam in the 5th but had probably his worst outing of the year allowing a couple of bases loaded doubles and walking 3 in a row as well. JP Massey was very good finishing things out going 3 hitless/scoreless innings and striking out 5. At the plate it was an all too familiar story as just couldn't string at bats together or come through with the timely hit to really make things a game after falling behind.
