The Irish their season off with some highs and lows. LHP Teddy Klingsporn has been dominant in 2 starts for the Irish continuing the success he had as a Sophomore at Luther College this spring. Veteran RHP Mike Fritz has been rock solid in his first couple outings as well. While the pitching has been good the bats have been slow to wake up thus far. With a very deep and talented pitching staff to with solid defense the Irish have a chance to be very tough this summer especially when the bats start to come around.
