CWS: Oregon State goes with Nickerson. I got to meet Tanner

By Eric Sorenson - June 22, 2006

Pat Casey and the OSU staff decide to go with Jonah Nickerson, the Monday winning pitcher vs. Georgia, to start today's game with Rice. Nickerson pitched 7.0 innings, giving up just four hits and walking none in getting his 12th win of the season.

The thinking here is that the Beavers will probably start the roller-coaster that is Dallas Buck in game one of the title series, if they win this one.

On another note, big props to the venerable CSTV blogger Glenn Tanner, who I finally got to meet out at his tailgate before the game. His wife was totally cool too, but didn't seem to cotton to my bragging I did about him, explaining that his head was already big enough. Nonetheless, the best part had to be the free beers I was able to coax from him. Thanks big daddy... even if it wasn't Falstaff.
