CWS: Good stuff

By Mark Etheridge - June 17, 2006

Those of us who enjoy a good pitchers' duel and soaking it in today. Through 5 1/2, there were just three hits in the game - all by Rice. There were also nine walks - six by Rice.

Eddie Degerman has been very tough to read, with his over the top delivery. Georgia has taken a lot of pitches to get a better look at him. They've gotten six walks but stranded four and had two strikem-out throwem-out DPs.

As I type this, RIce has loaded the bags on Georgbia starter Brooks Brown with two singles and a hit batsmen. There's no outs, and Dave Perno elects to stay with his starter in lieu of top setup man Rip Warren.

Rice leads 2-0 after a sac fly.

BTW, we have some un-June-like temperatures in Omaha today. The high is in the 70s and it has a fall-like feel to it. A great day for baseball.
