3 run homer by the Canadian Crusher
11-5, bottom of 9th. Good on Auburn for what it's done, but the UNC bullpen has really, really sucked. Should have stuck with the starter.

Congrats to freshman Kumar Rocker. I sure wish his Auburn Dad had sent him to Auburn.

Fan not calling balk or blowing whistle during play (in 80s Tenn got a huge sack on us after fan blew whistle and our qb stopped play).

35 years ago?

A whistle is bad, but distracting chatter is part of baseball, and making the pitcher drop the ball was kinda funny.

Hard to forget. It happened right in front of me.


I probably agree about the balk. It sure must have seemed real for a college pitcher to hold up a pitch.

Still, go #3 Duke > #1 Vanderbilt, game 3 today at 3 ET.

Go #1 UCLA > #3 Michigan, game 3 today at 9 ET.

#1 Oklahoma State - #1 Texas Tech, Series Tied 1-1. Ugh, can they both lose?

#1 Florida State leads 1-0 vs #1 LSU. Go LSU, game 2 today at 6 ET.

#1 MISSST leads 1-0 vs #1 Stanford. Go Stanford, game 2 today at 9 ET.

#1 Arkansas leads 1-0 vs #1 Mississippi. Ugh, can they both lose?

#1 Louisville wins 2-0 vs #1 East Carolina. Oh well, but I don't hate Louisville.

Wow, that bottom 3rd UNC RF run, catch of a foul ball, flip over the railing and sticking the landing should make the alltime highlight reels.

Or maybe it was lsu. The Tenn embarrassment I saw from those seats was 2 or 3 1st down pick 6 screen passes to put Tenn up by a bunch without having made an offensive play.

Great relief by both teams.
UNC had 9 walk, 15 LOB!, coulda been lots worse for Auburn.
