Missouri State will log some hours this week on the bus as they travel to Oklahoma State for a mid-week matchup and then follow that up with a 3 game series against Minnesota. Oklahoma State is not an easy matchup especially a mid-week matchup. The Bears and Cowboys faced off last year in Springfield that saw the Cowboys take that one 6-5 in 10 innings.
MoState will be led by Jeremy Eierman who has been on a tear since the start of the year. Eierman currently have 6 homeruns to go along with his .341 average. However, MoState has certainly not been quiet on the pitching mound. Bears have only allowed 17 earned runs in 100 innings to equal a 1.53 team era.
I really like this matchup for the bears early in the season. It makes for a solid bench mark matchup and give Missouri State some ability to see where they stack up against the highest competition.
