Jones back on track at Tech

It's only one start, but Louisiana Tech's Jericho Jones seems to be over the dreaded sophomore slump that plagued him a year ago.

Jones was one of three Tech pitchers who combined on a three-hitter in Saturday's win over McNeese.

It was almost two years ago when Jones burst on the college baseball scene, earning Freshman All-America honors from Baseball America magazine. He then, like numerous other athletes, suffered through a less productive sophomore season.

Injuries and game plans designed to not let him beat the opposition took their toll on Jones.

In his first pitching appearance of 2008, however, Jones looked like he was on his way back to being the two-way standout Wade Simoneaux so desperately needs if his Bulldogs are to break their regional drought.
