    I think so, or Dennis Cook from the OF.

    Sorry, I don't remember Steve Labay starting the game, but I do remember him twisting their hitting star into the ground when he threw the "LaLob" for a third strike, then going back to the outfield.

    I don't remember Cookie ever starting any game in Omaha, just remember telling Randy Hendricks to call Skoal and get him an endorsement after the Jim Katt (??) remarks, "Cook has called time out and is going over toward the Texas dugout. Looks like he's going to change bats as he calls the batboy out." Katt was left speechless as Cookie reached in his hip pocket, pulled out a can of Skoal, took a dip, strolled back to the plate and stroked a base clearing double to give us the lead.

    There’s some pretty evenly matched teams in the CWS.

    I don’t think any scrubs slipped in.

    Texas ran into buzz saw and in spite of an outstanding pitching performance by Madden and Hansen, the Horns will have to play out of the losers bracket. Bracket two has Texas playing Tennessee Tuesday afternoon in an elimination game and UVA playing Mississippi State in the winners bracket Tuesday night.

    Will be interesting to see how Bednar’s next outing goes.

    Likely ready for their game 4. Thus we need UVA to beat Miss St and we play them in game 3 for both teams.

    Stanford slams Arizona 14-5 in their elimination game, as the Wildcats become the first casualty in Omaha.

    N.C. State slips past Vandy 1-0 thanks to a solo home run in the 5th. The Wolfpack had 15 strikeouts over 8.5 innings - were they thinking they could break our record? :smile1:

    Vanderbilt gets shut out in a 2-hitter. Vandy only gave up 4 hits and one run. Game ends on a called third strike.

    There has been some phenomenal pitching at the CWS thus far. The two teams I thought would be in the final, Texas and Vanderbilt are going to have to come out of the losers bracket, Texas will have to do it with 4 elimination games, Vandy with three.

    I was wondering about this stat, and Kirk Bohls gave me the answer:
    Bohls: Longhorns swing and miss

    Horns win 8-4 to advance in the losers bracket and Thursday they will get the loser of tonight's MSU-UVA game.

    Horns will likely start Hansen Thursday even with his two innings of work Sunday as he didn't throw many pitches and that may well have been his throwing day anyway. Texas will have fully rested Quintanilla, Gordon and Nixon in the pen. I will say it again, if there is a team in Omaha with the pitching depth to come out of the losers bracket it is this Texas team, its all about the bats.

    Well said, FWHORN. The key lies in scoring to give the pitching some good run support. I wish the Horns were not in the loser's bracket, but it's what it is.

    Miss St had no hits and no runs thru 7.

    They have scored 6 so far in the 8th and still batting,

    Score 6-4 Miss St

    UVA absolutely dominates for seven innings but their pitching just comes apart in the 8th and chokes away a four run lead. MSU wins and has the two to win one slot for bracket two. The Horns will face UVA in an elimination game Thursday night with winner having to beat the Bulldogs twice to advance.
