2018 CWS
if it were rock-paper-scissors i would imagine it would go something like:

Beavers eat Bacon
more Bacon is better than more cowbell
Cowbells drown out Beavers

Oregon St eliminates Miss St 5-2.

Sorry OO.

Per OATM's rock-paper-scissors logic, the Beavors will devour Arkansas.

On paper OSU should be favored over Arkansas. However, Arkansas has had the easier road to the finals wining / playing 3 games. OSU has played 5 games after losing the first one. I hope the SEC does not win this one.

I came home Monday evening expecting to watch a college baseball game. Disappointed.
FYI, I'm supporting the Hogs. Former SWC team. Sorry, Oregon State.

RE: 2018 CWS
There were a couple of questionable calls by the umpires that cost OSU. One was a runner interference call that changed the situation from 1 run in with runners at 1st and 2nd and no outs to 2 outs and a runner at 3rd. The following inning with two outs and a runner on first a ball hit the right field line and was called foul, later to be ruled fair by video replay. They gave the batter first base and the runner 3rd.

Oregon State with a bases loaded squeeze bunt to go up 2-1 with the batter safe at first. Looking forward to seeing well executed bunts again from Rice.

Arkansas now up 3-2 going to 7th.

The homeplate ump seems to have a "Joe Savery-ish" strike zone tonight. At least he's been consistently bad.

Either that or no bunts.

Having retired to Arkansas and listened to the arrogance of the Razorback fans.......I've got to root for the Beavers. One would think they've won a dozen championships

Either that or no bunts.

Of course, after falling behind 3-2 in the 5th inning, OSU had runners on 1st and 3rd no outs, and again tried the squeeze bunt. The result? A line drive bunt to the pitcher, who then doubled up the runner at 3B. Live by the sword, die by the sword.

Arkansas still up 3-2 heading to the 8th inning. BTW, how many LHPs does OSU have? Said the same thing about Stanford. Do they grow on trees out West?

RE: 2018 CWS
Down to their last strike with a runner on 3rd ... a Beaver hits what would have been a game/series-ending foul popup down the 1st-base line ... except it's overrun by Arkansas' 2nd baseman and drops equidistant between him and the left fielder and 1st baseman, who had converged on the ball. The Beaver batter then hit a single to left field that tied the game, 3-3 ... and the next batter smashed a home run over the right-field fence to give Oregon State a 5-3 lead heading to B9!!

RE: 2018 CWS
Massive choke job by Arkansas. Bad fielding error by 2B to come charging in like that and distract the RF and 1B, but the pitcher can't melt down like that.

RE: 2018 CWS
After a leadoff walk in B9 and a K (looking) ... a hot-shot back to the pitcher started a game-ending double play. Beavers win, 5-3!

The Hogs and Beavers play tomorrow for the title.
