The Creighton baseball team is preparing for Saturday’s 7 p.m. Missouri Valley Conference tournament championship matchup with Southern Illinois, but that didn’t stop players and coaches from taking a moment to discuss the upcoming game.
Creighton pitcher Ty Blach, whose one-hitter helped the Jays upset Indiana State in their opening game, is slated to take the mound on Saturday. In the video, he covers pitching on short rest, the buzz around a big game, the team’s pitching depth and the season thus far. CU catcher Scott Thornburg discusses his thoughts heading into the MVC championship, and Bluejays coach Ed Servais covers the experience edge (as returning MVC Tournament champions), how his team is playing differently in the tournament and more.
