Mark Pope will take on Mercer’s Brandon Love at 7 p.m. Friday in Tech’s regional opener.
Tech coach Danny Hall said on Monday that he was considering holding in reserve Deck McGuire (8-3), who is normally his team’s Friday starter.
The question becomes how long will Hall hold McGuire?
Should Tech win, and Elon upset Alabama, will he rest him until Sunday and send him out for what could be a clinching game?
Perhaps we will find out at Thursday’s press conferences.
Until then, here’s how Pope and Love compare:
Record 7-1 8-3
ERA 4.26 6.19
IP 69 2/3 68 1/3
H 85 87
R 37 52
ER 33 47
BB 11 27
K 63 62
