COLLEGE FOOTBALL: DEC 04 American Championship Game - Houston at Cincinnati Photo by Ian Johnson/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

Our man Griffin Merritt single-handedly bested Tulane in the opening game of the AAC Baseball Tournament on Tuesday. Merritt belted 2 home runs in the fourth-seeded Cincinnati Bearcats’ 8-1 win over fifth-seeded Tulane.

Beau Keathley pitched a complete game, surrendering just 1 run and earning his fifth win of the season.

The good guys face off with nationally-ranked East Carolina today at 1 PM. The game will be available on ESPN+ for those who can’t make it to Clearwater, Florida. Win or lose, there will be another game to play as this is a double-elimination tournament.

Thanks as always for your support. We will have full coverage of the contest later today. Plenty of great new football content coming up too. We will be bringing on a new writer very soon who will cover the gamut of Cincinnati Bearcats athletics. But let’s get this big win today in Florida.
