Grambling baseball didn’t enter the SWAC tournament as they hoped. The Tigers have dropped five straight games. Their last win was on April 30, a 5-2 home victory over Prairie View A&M.
Any hopes to releasing any bad vibes before postseason play were dashed, after weather forced a cancellation of GSU’s final two regular season games at Dallas Baptist.
Now, James Cooper and company are forced to wake up at the crack of dawn, and suit up for a 9 a.m. date with Alabama A&M. This 2021 SWAC festivities will take place in Madison, Alabama – a suburb of Huntsville.
The scheduled first pitch time isn’t ideal. But, it comes with the territory of being a No. 2 seed, in this case. The Bulldogs are ranked No. 3, also in the West bracket.
Coach Cooper assures that entering postseason action on a losing streak has some positives.
“With the downtime we’ve had, we’ve had a chance to rest some guys, ” says Cooper. “…Especially when you look at some of the starters that we’re playing in 40 consecutive games. Those guys needed a break. So the downtime did give us a chance to rejuvenate our batteries, so to speak.”
Grambling and Alabama A&M play Wednesday morning at 9 a.m. in Madison, Alabama. The game can be seen by clicking, here.
