Here are the top performers from July 15th from the Cape Cod Baseball League. The night went the way of the pitchers based on four out of the five games have 3 runs or less scored in them. The other game was a 4-1 victory for the Brewster Whitecaps over Falmouth Commodores.
The Cape Cod Baseball League had a great pitching matchup on Saturday June 26th with LSU junior RHP Anthony Ranaudo facing off against UConn sophomore RHP Matt Barnes. Ranaudo’s Brewster Whitecaps picked up a 5-3 victory over the Barnes’ Wareham Gatemen. Ranaudo went 6.2 innings while letting up only one hit and one walk while striking out eight batters. Matt Barnes ended up going seven innings allowing four hits while giving up one run and striking out 14 batters. The other interesting piece of news is that Arizona State LHP Josh Spence continued his run in the CCBL by pitching three innings giving up three hits while giving up one earned run. He spoke with us after his start last week and it can be checked out by clicking here.
Florida 10 Oregon State 2
Top-seeded Florida (44-15) used a seven-run third inning to post a 10-2 win over third-seeded Oregon State (32-23) in a winner’s bracket game of the NCAA Gainesville Regional on Saturday night at McKethan Stadium. Sophomore left-hander Alex Panteliodis (Tampa, Fla.) (10-2) matched his career high with eight strikeouts over five innings and earned the win to become the first Gator pitcher with 10 victories since Alan Horne went 10-2 in 2005. Seven of Florida’s 14 hits went for extra bases, with three homers, two triples and a couple of doubles.
The Beavers will meet second-seeded Florida Atlantic (36-23) in an elimination game tomorrow at 1 p.m., with the survivor needing to defeat the Gators twice to advance to next weekend’s NCAA Super Regional. Florida will face tomorrow afternoon’s winner at 7 p.m., live on Sun Sports.
We continue to bring you the lighter side of our great sport with another great rain delay video from the Western Kentucky and Florida Atlantic game over this past weekend. This is one of the better ones that I have seen in the last couple of years with some dancing and jokes played on the teams. Do you think it is better then the epic UConn-South Florida one from last year? (Click here for that one) My vote is still for the Division 3 danceoff between Lynchburg College and Christopher Newport University from two years ago. (Click here for that one).
