Slick Rick Speaks

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks
After committing four errors at Texas A&M on Tuesday, Jr. SS Rick Hague didn't need a recorder in his face and a note pad scribbling away detailing what was a forgettable game on his behalf. And after The OG opted to remove Hague from his position at short, it seemed proper to allow him a few days to digest the decision before being asked to provide opinion.

After his 4-for-6 night at the plate in his debut at designated hitter, his first start this season at a position other than shortstop, Hague opened up about the difficulties of the past few days.

"I'm just disappointed in what's going on," he said. "I expect more from myself, obviously. That game was lost by me. That's hurting the team, and I just want to be able to help the team."

Hague on his stellar showing at the plate in the Owls' 20-3 victory over No. 21 East Carolina: "I guess it makes me feel better that I can do something for us and contribute a little bit.

"It was just like a big monkey off my back to be able to come out and kind of open it up early."

Hague now has 13 multi-hit games and five multi-RBI games. His four-hit game was his second this season, and Hague noted that he has felt more relaxed at the plate of late.

The OG said he is leaning toward starting the same lineup against the Pirates on Saturday. The Owls had 20 hits in 44 at-bats Friday night, including seven extra-base hits. They finished with six stolen bases while forcing three errors on ECU catcher Jared Avchen. In 13 Conference USA games, the Owls are batting .360/.445/.530 with 15 homers and 118 RBIs.
