The Cougars arrived in Geneva around 5 a.m. Wednesday after bussing home from Eastlake, Ohio – the second leg of a lengthy road trip that began in Fort Wayne, Ind.
"One of those typical bus rides," reliever Matt Iannazzo said. "We got here about 5, went home, slept for eight hours or so and had breakfast at 1 o'clock [p.m.] and came here. The day's kind of switched on us, but we'll get back to the groove here with this homestand."
The Cougars will host Bowling Green and Dayton for the next six games, concluding the first round of interdivision play.
Given the team's late night, manager Mark Johnson switched the Wednesday itinerary slightly.
"Didn't do any early work or didn't hit in the cage early. Just took short BP, just to get the blood going and get back in the synch of things," Johnson said. "Come back tomorrow and have a normal day."
