CBD Quick Hits for Feb. 18th

Here are some of my quick thoughts from games played on February 18th.

One of the things heading into the weekend that I wanted to see was how dominate Marcus Stroman would be with the Duke Blue Devils as a starting pitcher. He was far from dominant in his first start of the year on Saturday, lasting only five innings giving up three runs on four hits and six walks against the Texas Longhorns. I still believe he will be a great reliever but doesn’t have the type of stuff to be a starting pitcher but that is just my opinion. The Blue Devils ended up losing that game 4-0 in seven innings before dropping the nightcap 5-3. Continue reading CBD Quick Hits for Feb. 18th

CBD Quick Hits for Feb. 17th

The first day of College Baseball this season saw a couple of major upsets with some great pitching performances.

One of the biggest upsets of the day was between two ACC teams with Boston College beating Virginia 5-3 behind sophomore Eric Stevens who pitched six innings giving up three runs on seven hits. Leading the Eagles offense was a Spenser Payne three run homer in a four run fourth inning. Continue reading CBD Quick Hits for Feb. 17th

CBD Quick Hits: Texas 4, Arizona State 2

This game, unfortunately, will always be remembered for a unique situation that led to a controversial call from the umpires. From the walk that was overruled by an umpire’s call of batter interference, the Longhorns held the Sun Devils to only a pair of base runners over the final five innings. Arizona State, which picked up their runs on a first inning homer from Riccio Torrez, never quite recovered the momentum they built up in the early stages of the game, and stumbled out of the playoffs in a 4-2 defeat. The win sent Texas to Omaha, while Arizona State went back to Tempe. Continue reading CBD Quick Hits: Texas 4, Arizona State 2

CBD Quick Hits: Texas 5, Arizona State 1

Tonight’s game seemed like it was going to be another nail-biter. Each team was making plays on defense, and the pitching staff was keeping things in check. Then Jordan Etier decided to hit a curveball and sent it over the Longhorn bullpen for a three-run home run in the ninth inning. Texas was able to cruise to victory on freshman closer Corey Knebel’s arm, and force a game three tomorrow night at 6 PM CST. Continue reading CBD Quick Hits: Texas 5, Arizona State 1

CBD Quick Hits: Arizona State 3, Texas 1

Arizona State took advantage of a pair of Longhorn errors tonight in the third inning to pull out a 3-1 victory over Texas in the first game of their 2011 Super Regional in Austin. Brady Rodgers (10-4) took the win, while Taylor Jungmann (13-2) was saddled with his second consecutive loss in what could amount to his final collegiate game. Here are a few notes and observations from the game: Continue reading CBD Quick Hits: Arizona State 3, Texas 1
