Wow 24 runs against LSU, now that's impressive. Don't they have their Ace going tomorrow?
Does my heart good to see a whoopin like that put on the Coon-ass kitties.
There's gonna be fights at the Leavenworth pub tonite
1. What the heck is the Leavenworth Pub?
2. Looks like the Gators will face the #1 overall pick in the MLB Draft in Paul Skenes for the Tigers on the mound
Problem might be that Skenes' pitch count was rather high in his last outing from what I heard.
LSU went with Hurd to start the game.
Well the 24 runs yesterday sure isn't helping today.
Doesn't look good for the Gators.
It's all LSU right now. 9-2
Well, LSU just destroyed the Gators tonight. 18 runs, 24 hits. Didn't even need Skeenes, the best pitcher in college baseball.
How did a kid who developed into the best pitcher in college baseball, start off at Air Force?
They didn't need him for sure, but here's Curt Schillings take on that high pitch count from Thursday impacting whether he should (have) pitched tonight.
FWIW it looked like they were going to bring him in to finish off the 9th, but with the big run outburst I guess they figured what the heck he wasn't needed why not give that freshman some more big game experience.
Leavenworth lounge/pub was a staple of CWS bars when the "Blatt" was the home....fans of past know this and still pack the place during the CWS...old school single rail bar that has stood the test of time for decades....my dad drank there in the 50's.
Curt Schilling? If I'm looking for an opinion, his wouldn't be the one I'd seek. As it turned out, they didn't need him, and MLB teams seeking to draft him breathed a sigh of relief.
The 57 total runs for the three games has to be a record.
I agree with Schilling. Nobody coddles their pitchers more than the New York Yankees. If the wind changes directions they are taken out of games. And they are constantly hurt. Let the kid play baseball.
Well two epic beatdowns in the last two games.
Unfortunate for the Gators but congratulations to LSU.
Was that the bar that Bob Gibson hung out with your Dad?
Minor stat: Although LSU had 6 less runs than FL the night before, they had one more hit, 24 to 23.
In the 1957 CWS, the first one that Notre Dame Baseball participated in, the Irish beat Colorado State 23-2 in the 1st Losers Bracket game and then beat Texas 9-0 in the next game to make it to the semi-finals where they lost to Penn State 5-4, California beat Penn State for the Championship.
Until the Gators scored 24 runs the 1957 Irish and the 1984 Arizona State squads held the record for the most runs in a CWS game at 23. That '84 ASU squad had Barry Bonds.
No, that was the original Dundee Dell in Omaha.
Northwestern fired their baseball coach, he's been accused of mistreating players.
