Next up for the team is another weekend on the same field.
Not sure if the team is headed back to E.L. for the week or staying in S.C.
Fri 2/22 doubleheader
Western Carolina and Cincinnati
Sat 2/23 vs. Furman
Sun 2/24 vs. Miami-Ohio
Thank you for the updates.
Alleman pitched 1 1/3 today with 3 strikeouts. That has to be a huge confidence boost.
Big Ten not getting the start we need.
We are digging a big hole to work out of (Conf. RPI strength-wise)
Still early, but all teams need to step up or we could be headed for a one-bid year.
The Big Ten is 11-22 on the season.
Ranked 25 of 31 in conf. winning percentage
Records after the first weekend.
1-1 MSU (win against NW doesn't apply to conf. records)
1-1 NW (loss against us...same)
2 games today, weather permitting.
Check MSU baseball twitter for updates and links to iscore or gametracker feed.
I won't have much opportunity today to post updates.
The Michigan State baseball team travels to Greenville, S.C., for the second weekend of the First Pitch Invitational and will play four games this weekend (Feb. 22-24) at Fluor Field. The Spartans open this weekend's slate against Western Carolina on Friday at 1 p.m.
MSU beat Western Carolina 4-1. 2nd game (Cincy) is underway.
Spartans have put up 4 in the bottom of the 4th. Still have runners on 2nd and 3rd with 1 out. MSU up 4-0 on Cincinnati.
Some great pitching from Waszak and Kinley in today's first game against WCU.
Michigan State IP H R ER BB SO

Kinley still doing great I see. I thought he had a good season last year.
Walks and an error help Cincinnati in their half of the 5th.
5-3 headed to bottom of the 5th.
Spartans add another. 6-3 going to the 6th.
Thanks for updating the score. I drove up for the game from Tampa, but my fingers are not in typing shape. This Florida boy is cold.
Good guys threatening. 1st/3rd, 1 out, Cincy pitching change.
No problem. Glad I could help.
11-6 MSU in the bottom of the 7th. Bullpen needs to put this one away.
Cincy goes down quick in the 8th. Still 11-6, bot 8
3 more for State. 14-6 MSU. Runners on 1st and 2nd with one out in the bottom of the 8th.
Cincy's box score is 6 6 6. Can't say I've ever seen that.
Ballgame. MSU wins
The Michigan State baseball team won twice on Friday in the First Pitch Invitational at Fluor Field, defeating Western Carolina in the opener, 4-1, and topping Cincinnati, 14-6, in the nightcap. The Spartans improved to 3-1 on the season.
MSU game starts at 2 today at Fluor Field. Western Carolina vs. Miami-Ohio going on right now. Hopefully we can avenge the loss last weekend against Furman.
The stadium is pretty sweet. This is our 6th year playing down here. It seems like all Boston farm clubs have incorporated the green monster into the field design.
The Big Ten played better yesterday. Hopefully a good overall weekend by the league can correct some of the bad from last weekend.
