I just hope we win our second game then.
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.
UVA leads Tennessee 3-0. 7th inning. Winner faces winner of our game tonight.
Now it’s UVA 5-0 over Tenn. 8th inning.
More insurance. 6-0 uVA. 9th inning.
There’s some pretty evenly matched teams in the CWS.
I don’t think any scrubs slipped in.
Except the Texas Longhorns...
Yep, Bednar’s an animal…
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.
So much for Zona as the dark horse.
Damn. I thought Zona would win.
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?
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.
What time is game today?
Chop and FWHorn
You have spoiled us.
Texas plays Tennessee at 1 central today, Tristan Stevens (11-3 2.97 ERA) will start for Horns. Game is on ESPNU.
Most of previews I found were behind paywalls but here is Express News article:
After 'humbling' loss, Texas seeks to regroup before CWS elimination game against Tennessee
Looks like Vols starter is 10-3 with 3.57 ERA.
Here is Tennessee's preview:
Tennessee, Texas to square off in College World Series elimination game on Tuesday
Requiem for a Tuesday: Vols looking to bounce back in Omaha against Texas
I was wondering about this stat, and Kirk Bohls gave me the answer:
Bohls: Longhorns swing and miss
Way to go DEFENSE!!
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
Well well well, rematch.
Not so fast. Gotta get by UVA first.
Oops got that wrong, sorry.
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.
