31-0 And Counting

Jarvis Christian College is UT Tyler's latest victim. The Patriots won 19-2 tonight to extend their perfect record to 31-0. And, with just seven games left, the Patriots are looking like they might just be able to pull this off. Here's how the remaining schedule breaks down:

Friday, April 13th - LeTourneau @ Tyler, 6:00 p.m.
Saturday, April 14th - LeTourneau @ Tyler (DH), 1:00 p.m.

LeTourneau is always a threat because of the emotion involved in being an East Texas rival, but the Yellowjackets are just 9-20, 3-9 in conference action. They've won just 3 of the last 13.

Tuesday, April 17th - Southwestern Assembles @ Tyler, 6:00 p.m.

The Patriots beat the Lions 14-3 on February 20th.

Friday, April 20th - @ Louisiana College, 6:00 p.m.
Saturday, April 21st - @ Louisiana College (DH), 1:00 p.m.

This is the series that has the best chance to put an end to the streak. The Wildcats are 20-12 (7-5) and have won six of their last eight games.

Realistically, any of these teams could beat the Patriots on any given day. An error or two can lead to an extra run or two which can lead to a win. Having said that, there aren't any ranked teams left, and facing the prospect of no postseason baseball, you know the Patriots will be focused and gunning for that perfect mark.
