That sucked. Feel a little sorry for Mize - he goes the whole season with only 12 walks, then gives up 4 in 5 innings.
Ouch, Best of 3 Series at least.
Huskies are also down 0-1, play again this evening.
Duke's up 1-0 in the 5th inning of their first game.
Weird, I must have misread. The Huskies won Game 1, lost this evening.
Duke is down 0-1 - really.
I kinda like MN, but it's down 0-1.
Not that I'm much of a fan, but UNC has advanced to the Best of 3 Championship Series, the only team so far to do so. O Really will be happy if he ever surfs to this thread.

O Really doesn't much care.
I enjoy 2-3 live games a year, usually MLB Spring training and a Tourist or similar game. Maybe watch the end of the World Series. Not much more likely to follow college baseball than college soccer.

That's what the Alumni Association has said for years. But sure, in any given circumstance, if it's a choice of preferring a UNC win or loss, I'll prefer the win. But some events appeal to me more than others. College baseball is not one of the more.

Agreed - whew!

We were up 2 - 1 going into the 9th when their 2nd batter hits a solo home run on the first pitch.

The Huskies game was even crazier, total of 7 scored by the 2 teams in the 9th and 10th, also won on a walkoff. Advances to the Best of 3 Championship Series!
Duke crushed Texas Tech 11-2, Game 3 this afternoon.
OR St. has also advanced on the other side of the bracket. I kinda like them, not as much as OR or the Huskies. I'll root for them over there, then TX (if it advances today) and UNC.
MS St has also advanced on Auburn's side of the bracket.

Wow, what a fucked up way to end an 11 inning game. I ended up rooting for Auburn so that we'd have something to (trash) talk about.
Duke got beat 6-2. It loaded the bases in the 8th and didn't get squat.

Bracket 1
Go WA, then OR St, then UNC.

Bracket 2
Go FL or TX.

If you didn't watch - they got their 2nd run, the run that caused extra innings, on a steal home. Nothing like a wild pitch, just our pitcher standing on the mound watching the runner on first with his back to the runner on third and the guy takes off and scores.

Excellent play on their part. The runner on first put on a show by falling down and our pitcher fell for it. By the time he heard the catcher screaming, it was too late.

:lol: I'm poison. UNC lost 12-2 to MS St, plays OR St in the Bracket 1 Elimination Bracket tomorrow. The winner plays MS St for 1 or 2 games to advance to the Championship. The one team that I did not want is in the catbird seat.

OR St came back brilliantly with 4 runs each in the 8th and 9th to beat UNC, first game I've won in this round. Now plays MS St for 1 or 2 games to advance to the Championship, starting tomorrow afternoon. OR St has to win 2, MS St just one.

FL plays TX Tech in the Bracket 2 Elimination Bracket game tonight. Go 'Canes.

Another win, FL beats TX Tech 9-6 in a lively game. Now plays Ark. for 1 or 2 games to advance to the Championship, starting tonight. FL has to win 2, Ark. just one.

If Ark. vs. MS St, I will completely lose interest.
