College World Series: #1 and #2

Well, we finally made it to Omaha. And the Shocking appearance by Stanford and Fresno State will keep this double elimination dual-bracket eight team dogfight interesting.

Yesterday’s Games:

Game #1 Stanford vs. Florida State: With the Seminoles coming from behind twice in the same game, I thought certain they would prevail in the bottom of the Ninth. The move of future giant Buster Posey to pitcher in the 9th was a rough one. The Cardinal put up 11 runs in the top of the ninth, to solidify their presence in the Winners side of Bracket 1. It almost didn’t happen though. The ridiculous blunder of the first base umpire calling a chalk drenched base hit by Jason Castro foul almost nullified the rally. Castro did deliver anyway, but the foul ball would have scored two runs. Either way, Cardinal Advance to face the winner of…

Game #2  Miami  vs. Georgia: It should have been an easy one  for the Hurricanes, though this Bulldog team came powering out of the losers side of the Athens Bracket. They have shown no fear since. Ane they showed no fear in the ninth inning down 4-3. The Bulldogs capitalized on some Miami errors and had timely hitting putting together a four run rally and a nail in Game #2. The Bulldogs will see if they still have the magic against Stanford Monday.

Today’s Predictions:

Game #3 Fresno State vs. Rice: Call me a pessimist but i just don’t see it. While I love the WAC representation in the CWS, but the buck stops here. Rice easily wins it for Dad. Fresno State should be out of here by Tuesday.

Game #4 LSU  vs. UNC: Tough Draw for LSU, They’re going to lose… UNC! UNC!
