The elusive first one
After a tough weekend series against Sun Belt foe South Alabama, the Mountaineers (9-16) are still without a conference victory and have fallen to 0-9 in such contests.

It looked like App State could steal one in the second half of a Saturday double header, but was edged 3-2.

The other two games didn’t go well for the Mountaineers, either, as the team lost the other two road games 6-1 and 8-0, respectively.

Runs, runs, runs
It seems like a simple concept, but indeed, when the Mountaineers pour on the runs, the wins come, too.

In the month of March, App State has scored more than three runs only twice, one of which was in a 6-5 loss at ULM and the other was a thrilling 12-9 comeback win over UNC Charlotte.

Obviously, 12 runs goes a long way in helping do the little things like letting pitchers afford mistakes and settle into grooves.

Swing the bats and see how it goes. Pouring runs on UT Arlington in Boone might allow the team to truly settle into a groove for the first time this season.

We hope you appreciate this article! Before you move on, our student staff wanted to ask if you would consider supporting The Appalachian's award-winning journalism. We are celebrating our 90th anniversary of The Appalachian in 2024!

We receive funding from the university, which helps us to compensate our students for the work they do for The Appalachian. However, the bulk of our operational expenses — from printing and website hosting to training and entering our work into competitions — is dependent upon advertising revenue and donations. We cannot exist without the financial and educational support of our fellow departments on campus, our local and regional businesses, and donations of money and time from alumni, parents, subscribers and friends.

Our journalism is produced to serve the public interest, both on campus and within the community. From anywhere in the world, readers can access our paywall-free journalism, through our website, through our email newsletter, and through our social media channels. Our supporters help to keep us editorially independent, user-friendly, and accessible to everyone.

If you can, please consider supporting us with a financial gift from $10. We appreciate your consideration and support of student journalism at Appalachian State University. If you prefer to make a tax-deductible donation, or if you would prefer to make a recurring monthly gift, please give to The Appalachian Student News Fund through the university here: https://securelb.imodules.com/s/1727/cg20/form.aspx?sid=1727&gid=2&pgid=392&cid=1011&dids=418.15&bledit=1&sort=1.
