Beauty of baseball

Baseball, in its purest form, is an everyday battle.

There are few off days during a Major League Baseball or a minor league season. And, now, with a more compressed college schedule, it's becoming that way for NCAA student-athletes.

Said schedule now allows for more two-game midweek series instead of the more common single-game matchups.

In turn, that allows for the beauty of what happened in New Orleans on Tuesday and Wednesday.

On Tuesday, Northwestern State and Tulane played a taut, 11-inning thriller with Tulane winning 4-3. On Wednesday, however, it was time for the bats to take over.

In something resembling a typical midweek game, the Green Wave finished the two-game sweep with an 18-11 game in which one Green Wave hitter went 6-for-6.

Such is the beauty of an everyday game -- one day it's all about pitching and defense, the next is an offensive onslaught.
