    Well, both Georgia teams took a page from the Braves manual for post season success and bowed out early. The #1 seed and the CWS favorite play an elimination game today. The Pac-10 fights to keep their lone representitive alive tonight. It has been a surprising series so far.

    Fullerton gave away that game. They threatened in seemingly every late inning and just couldn't push a run across because they kept screwing up.


    They managed to rebound in their second game with a late rally though. I really thought that they were going to lose their second game because of that fan interference HR that gave Georgia Tech the 5-4 lead late in the game.

    Historically the Pac 10 has dominated the CWS but this year is a majorly down year. The Pac 10 has won almost half of all the CWS that have been contested.
    I know, just over in the thread in Web Improvements, someone said that he was kind of upset at the Pac-10 being too dominant.

    GT gave up their chance to win that game when they removed the starter. He had a 2-hitter through 7 and then the bullpen was just awful. I think Clemson scored 7 runs before GT even got an out in the inning. Complete collapse.

    Yeah. I was listening to the game on the radio while on a friend's boat, and I just happened to hear the go-ahead homer. Wasn't happy, that was for sure.

    Fullerton has the best pitching and I think that will carry it for them. I believe they led the NCAA in ERA this season and they have 3 great starters and a good closer. Tough to compete with that pitching depth when most teams only have 1 good starter.

    Offensively, they are good but not great. They lack power but they have great speed and play small ball. They put extreme pressure on the defense and are always looking to take the extra base and force the defense to make plays. This keeps them from being prone to outages when they aren't hitting HR's.
