CWS: Gundy in to close

By Lindsay Schnell - June 22, 2006

As the guy sitting next to me just said, "Nickerson had a hell of a ballgame." I agree. And now the Beavers are going to give the ball to Kevin Gunderson to finish things off.

Okay, honestly, did anyone expect this? It's not just that the Beavers are thisclose to playing for a title -- it's the fact that they're doing it after being just hammered in the opening game. Nickerson threw 109 pitches, had 2 hits, no runs and threw 9 strikeouts. Yes, I think that can be defined as "one hell of a ballgame."

OSU is up 2-0 and Rice can't seem to get anything going offensively. It's looking like we're going to have two first-time finalists duking it out in Omaha to bring home a national championship.

One word, my friends: WOW.

I think the East Coast go so excited about all the ACC teams in the CWS, they forget that the Pac-10 is the toughest conference in the Country. OSU has seen better pitchers all season. OSU realized they couldn't win games based on there press clippings. They finally started playing like they have all season. The NCAA selection committe obviously spent to much time reading the East Coast hype in the newspapers. Cal State could have easily been in the finals with OSU too.

I can't believe you found a way to get "Duke" into this coverage of this sport and their team is nowhere to be seen........"duking it out."
