Son got in 5 innings of work vs LCU. Showed some rust from the Thanksgiving holiday-wedding-Christmas holiday-honeymoon-New Years' holiday. Still had 3 shut-out innings, allowed 3 runs, but was strong against the top 5 in the batting order. Son was matched up against Burkburnett Blacksox 2004 summer teammate Chris Hoguin-Lubbock Estacado/Seward County JUCO/LCU. Chris allowed 1 run thru 6 & threw great. Good job Hogi!
