ACC: Weather or Not
By Glenn Tanner - May 23, 2007
After three quick innings in game three today, Miami leads Clemson 2-0.
Miami had a runner in scoring position in each of the first two innings, but couldn't capitalize. That changed in the third.
#9-hitter Ryan Jackson singled, moved to second on a sac bunt, and scored when Roger Tomas smoked a double by the third base bag. Daniel Moskos struck out Yonder Alonso for the second out, but Jemile Weeks blooped a single to second to make it 2-0.
Miami pitcher Scott Maine stranded two runners in scoring position in the first and is keeping Jemile Weeks busy – the second baseman had four 4-3 putouts in the first two innings.
The wind is still blasting straight in and we've had a continuous rotation of sun and clouds all day. With Jacksonville's coastal location, scattered rain is usually a fact of life, but that small shower we had after game one has been it so far. (Knocking on this wood paneling next to me.) This stadium's location near the St. Johns River also adds to the weather weirdness. Some of the local were sharing stories about how frequently the rains stall just above the river, and one guy who works at the stadium insisted there was a night when it was pouring on the right fielder for several minutes, but not raining at all on the infield.
