Every year about this time of the season I start to tire on the college game as it is such a long season. I just wait for that moment to recharge my energy and tonight that event happened. Holy Cross blew a three run lead in the top of the ninth inning while also giving up the lead to the Bison heading to the bottom of the ninth. HC would get a two out single to tie up the game by Eric Oxford and Steve Tkowski would hit a fly ball to right field which was lost in the lights allowing the winning run to score in front of a raucous crowd. You can check out my full recap of the game by clicking here and my Live Blog I ran during the game by clicking here. I will be running a Live Blog during Games 2 and 3 on Saturday on this site.
Kentucky and Pittsburgh likely played themselves out of the NCAA Tourney on Friday with some very bad losses. Kentucky was absolutely blown out by Georgia 20-0 as the Bulldogs picked up their first SEC conference series victory of the season and have an SEC record of 5-22. Pitt lost a doubleheader to South Florida on Friday night by scores of 7-3 and 14-12. Kentucky will definitely miss the NCAA Tourney and Pitt is going to need a good showing in the Big East Tourney to improve the RPI.
Oakland University junior LHP Aaron Wick pitched a seven inning no-hitter over Southern Utah on Friday night. He walked three batters while striking out five to pitch the fifth no-hitter in the school’s history and the first since the school joined Division 1.
