    Orange Wins Pitching Duel in Series Opener
    Daniel Apple
    The Orange team won 2-0 (six innings) on Tuesday afternoon in the first game of the Orange & Blue Series, the annual conclusion to finish fall ball.
    Kendrick Calilao hit a two-run homer in the top of the first inning and the pitchers did the rest.

    The Orange team won 2-0 (six innings) on Tuesday afternoon in the first game of the Orange & Blue Series, the annual conclusion to finish fall ball.

    Calilao's two-run shot provided the only scoring in the game. Five pitchers combined for the six-inning shutout for the Orange squad. Kevin Martin, Nolan Crisp, Ryan Cabarcas, and Justin Alintoff each pitched scoreless frames and David Luethje tossed two shutout innings to finish off the scrimmage.

    Good stuff. Sorry I won’t be able to make the last scrimmages. They start too early, but I understand they need to catch the daylight.

    After winning a pitching duel on Tuesday, the Orange team flexed its offensive muscle to win 13-2 against the Blue squad in Game 2 of the annual Orange & Blue Series.

    Sophomore Jud Fabian went 3-for-3 with a home run and four RBI on the afternoon as the Orange team totaled four homers in the game. Kirby McMullen, Brady Smith and Isaac Nunez also homered. Kendrick Calilao had a pair of doubles and a RBI.

    For the Blue team, freshmen Josh Rivera and Nathan Hickey each went 2-for-3 at the plate and Austin Langworthy went 1-for-3 with a single.

    On the mound, Tommy Mace led the way for the Orange side, allowing two runs (one earned) over three innings of work. Christian Scott worked two scoreless innings with four strikeouts to finish out the game.

    Great to see the hitting showed up but this was supposed to be the day with our best pitching. Hopefully its like others on here have said the hitters have seen the same pitching for most of the fall. I guess Leftwich had some trouble because he's not mentioned. Very happy the Ocala Connection came thru again at the plate.

    Love this team's potential.....but feels like the pitching staff picked up this fall right where they left off. Guy is lights out one outing or for a few innings and then gets shelled. Still a ton of inconsistency from pretty much everyone, including the vets. Has to drive Sully nuts cause the talent is there

    Agreed, just don’t have the feeling of “that guy” being on staff that pulls the wagon.....

    Exactly....I have no idea who he fully trusts to give us a great start, eat some innings, or even get a key out. There are 10 guys that can strike out the side one minute and then give up 4 runs the next.
    The crazy thing is it's everybody.....you name a pitcher and we can find the example of unhittable turning into a gas can. Maddening

    Sully might be quicker to pull a pitcher this season. And or, might see lots of shorter outings.

    I have watched Barco for 4 years. Seen almost every start he made during high school. I have confidence he will be this pitcher at some point next year. Lot to ask from a freshman but I believe he will be the guy.

    There have been a number of freshmen that rocked from day 1. My biggest question is the wall that is often reached in May. The college season is 15 starts give or take. That is a big step up for a lot of HS arms. My hope is they move him to the rotation by mid-April but that means UF needs a solid 3rd arm to get them to April. Maybe Scott?

    I thought Pogue did a solid job being a Freshman Sunday guy. Kind of got thrown to the fire and handled it really well I thought for a young guy in that role. 3 out of his last 4 starts were solid.

    This incoming recruit class along with developing sophs make this a very interesting situation.

    Preseason practice starts in just two months. I can't wait.

    Agreed and he seems to be much more consistent this fall than the other candidates.

    There's not any pitcher on the team I can confidently predict will actually be good next year. I'm sure we will have good pitchers, but there's not really anyone who's proven he can be an above-average SEC pitcher. That's a tough position to be in - you like to at least have a couple proven arms you can pencil in for a bunch of innings.
