Wow-The Aubs do it again.
Ballgame! Miss State!
Wow. There's a couple of ground balls and a 9th inning Auburn would like a second chance on. Got to get 27 outs
That is the 2nd bizarro walk off loss for the Aubs this year because of sloppy play.
jhfxof-Is your TV still in one piece? LOL.
From Canadian Crusher to Canadian Choker.
First year at 3b & shaky all year on the throws. More time he has, more I hold my breath. Double clutches almost every time on those.
Why I was so glad he just had to stand there and tag Mac.....
You could just feel that coming, couldn't you?
LOL yep. all good.
I said uh-oh in head on about the 3rd Julien pump fake. I was expecting 1st baseman to then throw across to 3rd, ball get down LF line, & MSU just walk it off there.
Noting AU does in any sport good or bad surprises me anymore. Both waves comes out of no where and take you on a wild ride.
Juliens bomb tied record for longest HR at TDA at 418 ft., so theres that.
I also wasn't a fan of going to Burns in 9th. Ultimately worked out in theory, but Fitts was fine, been great in relief roll all post season. Fitts also better chance at producing DP ball w/1 on.
And now Burns done for rest of visit baring miracle run. Ill let the dumpster fire on AU board smolder before I visit, but Im certain Steve Smith is a target of frustration. All 4 top arms were used .
All he had to do was wait, and reach out and touch the runner. But when you're dealing with 18 to 22 year-old kids, anything can happen when the pressure gets dialed up.
So Miss State comes back and wins in the bottom of the 9th. I can't believe ESPN didn't set up another Bruce Pearl interview before the end of the telecast.
if you wrote that ending in a sports book the editor would reject it as too contrived or bizarre... but then it is the CWS and strange things happen when you put pressure on kids
COLLEGE WORLD SERIES
Van Eyk to try to keep FSU rolling
Pitcher hopes to build on opening win, defeat Michigan in showdown Monday
By Mike Malloy Orlando Sentinel Correspondent
Sequels are rarely as good as the original. Florida State pitcher CJ Van Eyk will try.
Van Eyk (10-3, 3.80 ERA) will start on the mound at 7 p.m. Monday against Michigan (47-20) at the College World Series in Omaha, Neb.
“I’ve never faced them before,” Van Eyk said. “I’ve seen them on television a few times, but I’ll just try to take the same mentality I took against LSU, Georgia [in the postseason].”
Junior Drew Parrish threw eight shutout innings and struck out nine in a win Saturday against Arkansas, tossing down a gauntlet Van Eyk will try to pick up.
“That’s the best I’ve seen him throw all year,” Van Eyk said.
The two were teammates in different uniforms last summer, suiting up for the Team USA College National team last summer. It was the second time Van Eyk had been with the organization; he was also on the Under-18 team in 2016, pitching at a tournament in Monterrey, Mexico. He appeared in two games, giving up one run in eight innings, and helping Team USA post a 7-1 record in the gold medal-winning run.

They were probably too busy setting up ANOTHER interview with “11” to be bothered with an interview with Pearl......
