CWS: That had to hurt

By Lindsay Schnell - June 26, 2006

A kid sitting on the third baseline right behind the OSU dugout just got nailed with a foul ball. No word on if he's okay, but the first aid people are down there checking on him now.

I'm betting that the Detroit Tigers, who drafted Nickerson in the seventh round of the draft this year, are sitting at home drooling -- Nickerson is going today on three days rest; he went against Rice on just two days rest. And man, he looks good. He struck out the side in the top of the second and didn't flinch while doing so.

OSU got one runner on in the bottom of the inning but couldn't score him. We're still tied at 0-0.

Oh, and Eric is right -- I hope OSU athletic director Bob De Carolis plans to up Casey's pay and make it worth his while to stay in Corvallis. The good news is this: I was talking with De Carolis the other day and he said he wouldn't be surprised if after the postseason the Beavers are having, Goss Stadium gets the expansion it needs.
