    Texas pitcher pitched a great game thru seven innings......unfortunately this isnt college softball and they play nine innings...the UCI staff pitched a BETTER game and Texas squandered their opportunities

    UC Irvine wins 3-1

    now its win or go home for the Longhorns as they drop to the losers bracket

    I watched most of both games yesterday and would not be surprised if it becomes an SEC showdown. Though UC Irvine has some awesome pitching, I can't see California teams winning this thing in back to back years.

    Squandering opportunities is an understatement, the 'Horns left 12+ on base. Give the UCI starter credit. He was able to get out of jams over and over.

    Am I the only one who is glad to see actual baseball being played in the CWS? Those 21-14 games were not much to write home about to me.

    It's NOT baseball if the pitchers can get away with any pitch because they KNOW the ball won't leave the park.

    Also not if the pitcher CAN'T get away with any pitch because he knows it WILL leave the park. With the old bats and the wind blowing out at Rosenblatt as hard as it seems to be blowing in at the new place, some of those games more closely resembled slow-pitch softball. But to each his own, I guess.

    While I may think they went a bit overboard at the new stadium, I like the various strategies employed in college baseball beyond power. So put me down as enjoying the current state of the game.
