College World Series


Arkansas 4 - Virginia 3

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.


  1. Nice you have tomorrow off to watch it....

  2. It was a great win last night, but LSU is just way too good.

    I'm watching ASU and Texas right now. I don't know if either team is playing well enough to beat LSU 2 out of 3. But it's Omaha and anything can happen.

  3. Sandee: A couple of days with dad is always fun.

    Bond: It was nice to have Friday off, enjoy the game...not so much.

    Travis: I believe you're right. Every team in the tournament has used last minute heroics to win at least one game...with the exception of LSU. They just come out and pound you into the ground with their hitting and keep you off the scoreboard with pitching and defence. Texas in going to have their hand full.
