The Rebs swept Tulane and came from behind to defeat Murray State in the midweek to improve to 8-0, their hottest start in 10 years. But now they head West for a three-game swing with the Long Beach State Dirtbags, a team that a year ago won 40 games and made it within a win of the College World Series. How will the Diamondsharks handle their first taste of the road?

Digital reporter Brian Rippee joins to talk all things baseball and we also touch on some coaching search. Can Grae Kessinger and Thomas Dillard keep it up? And what’s their secret? Will James McArthur get his groove back? Can the bullpen get any more loaded? If Thad Matta is a real possibility does the buck stop there?
