Golden Rams on a roll

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany State Golden Rams baseball team is out to prove it's not how you start the season, but how you finish.

The first month of the season was a tough one for ASU that included an eight-game losing streak.

Since then though, the Rams have done a complete 180.

Albany State has won 10 of their last 12 ball games, jumping out to a 9-0 start in conference play.

Head coach Kenyan Conner says the secret isn't much of a secret.

"The solution has been good pitching and good run support," he says. "We're just clicking at the right time."

The pitching has been very good, holding opponents to six or less runs in each of those ten wins.

ASU can make it a dozen in a row in conference with the Tuskegee Golden Tigers coming to town this weekend.

Conner says he's just trying to keep his kids focused on one game at a time.

"you just have to make sure they stay focused. They're still young guys. We don't want them to get complacent. We want them to continue to work hard, and try to win 10 in a row, then 11 in a row, try to keep it going," Conner says. "With these young kids, you just have to stay in their ear and keep them humble."

The Rams open their home series with Tuskegee with a Saturday doubleheader. First pitch of game one is at noon.
