USC lost to Washington, 9-5, at Dedeaux Field today. The Huskies won the series, 2-1. This comes on the heels of USC getting swept at Stanford last weekend and outscored, 34-2.
USC is now 3-6 in the Pac-12 and 13-11 overall. And Washington is 6-3 despite a 13-11 overall record. Here’s a worse stat: Since 2010, Washington is 10-2 at Dedeaux Field and has won four-straight series. That’s unforgivable.
A former USC player tells me there is talent on the current roster and the pitchers are good enough to make the Trojans an upper echelon Pac-12 team.
This might be true. But at some point, USC baseball needs to improve. And I highly doubt Lynn Swann wants to deal with it. He will simply dish it off to an assistant.
