College World Series
It took twelve inning and over five hours, but Arkansas finally beat Virginia 4-3 last night and advance to the bracket finals in the College World Series. That's the good news. The bad news is they now have to beat LSU twice! Monday night the Tigers had BBQ'd pork as they smoked the Razorbacks 9-1 and remained undefeated in their bracket. I do think that the Hawgs can pull of the upset and win one, but I don't know if they can beat the Tigers back to back. LSU has some of the best pitching in the CWS and they are now a very well rested team, while the Razorbacks are coming off of a twelve inning marathon. Arkansas does get the day off, as the two teams will play Friday afternoon. The Tigers haven't had to play since Monday night when they put a whoopin' on Arkansas. I've got the day off Friday, so I'll be watching.
