Live Baseball -- sorta

Alrighty, boys and girls, I'm here for actual baseball. Your Tigers are on the field as I'm typing this. As you know, we can't do a "live blog" of the game -- the NCAA frowns upon such things. I'll recap the innings as best I can for ya.

So, away we go on what is sure to be a fantastic voyage ...

JACKSONVILLE STATE v. AUBURN


JSU Top 1
: SP Cory Luckie struggled a bit, allowing a run on two hits. He also balked runners to second and third and walked 'em loaded. Fortunately for AU, that's where he left 'em. He did throw 36 pitches in the half-inning. JSU 1, AU 0

AU Btm 1:
Considerably less drama. Three to bat, three to sit. JSU starter Austin Lucas threw five pitches.

JSU Top 2: Another inning, another runner in scoring position. No harm this time, however. AU still down a run.

AU Btm 2: Think back to the first. It went like that.

JSU Top 3: Couple of balls to the track, but no harm done. Still one-zip, JSU.

AU Btm 3: Couple of balls to the track. Still no harm done by the Tigers.

JSU Top 4: A walk and double play. As an aside, you know what's stupid? Grown men at a baseball game yelling at "Blue."

AU Btm 4: Hey, offense. Your Tigers have plated three runs, despite one of the most awesomest catches by JSU CF Daniel Adamson that saved a grand slam. New score: AU 3, JSU 1

JSU Top 5:
And back come those pesky Gamecocks. Two-run ... ahem, DONG, and an RBI single put them back on top. Your new score: JSU 4, AU 3

AU Btm 5:
And back come the Tigers. They love pepper and hate cinnamon but also don't mind a lead either. Fradejas hit his second -- ahem -- DONG of the season -- this one a two-runner -- and AU is back on top. AU 5, JSU 4

JSU Top 6:
And back come the Gamecocks. Tied this baby at 5-5.

AU Btm 6:
Mr. Gamache went ahead and Ga-Mashed one. AU 6, JSU 5

JSU Top 7:
Eh.

AU Btm 7: Give the Tigers two more. And Gamache had hit one ball six inches higher and another a foot to the right, he'd have six more RBIs. On the other hand, had JSU's first sub-style pitcher been 12 feet to the left on a couple of pitches, he would've just missed outside. New score: AU 8, JSU 5

JSU Top 8:
And back come the Gamecocks ... just not all the way. Couple of runs scored, a runner left at third. Give these guys credit, they're not going anywhere. New score: AU 8, JSU 7

Brief summary:
Auburn wins, 9-7.


Sorry, had to finish a few notes and get quotes. But hey, it was on TV.

Well, I've learned that we didn't leave our bats in Auburn for the SEC tourney last week. We threw them in Lake Martin on the way to Hoover.

8:34 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

pitching change, Scottie B

the Jax state hurler tossed two balls at least TEN FEET outside, runners couldn't advance because the balls ricocheted off the backstop so fast. After those weird throws, he still got Mummey to ground out sharply to 1st, runners stuck at 2nd & 3rd.

Corndogs surviving the group of death...Watched a few innings of that game during the Bam rain delay. Have only read about the Eaters this year, but seeing them really showed they are nothing to sneeze over. A VERY solid baseball team that went to the CWS last year I think.

I still think if the Corndogs come out of this group they're repeating and will be placing at least a small wager if they do.

Bags. Bravo.

Looks like a crazy atmosphere at AU. Packed in and outside of the stadium.

Good Morning Tigers!! Good time last night even though it was so crowded in the terrace it was hard to see. But seeing the extra 1000 or more outside the fence and ALL ALONG each floor of the parking deck was awesome!

The question is ... where does Gus Mazlahn want to coach?

And if Auburn puts up a lot of points this year, he'll probably get another raise. He could make $1 million a year soon.

For that kind of money, is it worth becoming a head coach? Seriously.

Blogger cincytiger said...

Good morning, Hotties! Had a great time at the game last night with Mr. Cincy, WTC and Miller. Although they all kept trying to send me back to the bathroom. :) Everytime I headed down there we scored!

Just got back from an hour long power walk around the campus. It is beautiful! We saw so many things that we don't ordinarily see on football weekends.

10:34 AM  
Blogger Jet G. Hate said...

My guess is Gus is about to step into the no-man's land of coaching -- too much rep to take a small job he considers iffy, too little experience to get a big job he wants.

10:34 AM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

So maybe that means he stays here for a few years and gets the experience he needs to get the big job he wants. Win-win for everyone.

10:39 AM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

I'm pretty content to not spend one second worrying about where Gus will be in 2011 because he hasn't even coached a game yet in the 2010 season. Hasn't even opened up fall camp. Let's wait till we are scoring 40 points a game before worrying about where he'll be in the future.

10:43 AM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

Dartmouth and Florida International are worthy of ESPNU? Really?

11:16 AM

I don't know Gus at all. But from what I've heard of him, I've got to think he wants to try to be "the man" at some point. He'll go when the right job is offered.

Enjoyed the game last night... Nice to meet Mr & Mrs. Cincy.
It was a bit muggy out, and I think I sweated through 4 layers of clothing... I apologize if any of those layers were yours...

Sorry I didn't liveblog the game here... I did tweetblog it though.


Here are my 5 keys to AU beating Clemson today:
1) AU pitcher have to throw 1st pitch strikes and work ahead in the count...
2) The defense has to be sharp. Players have to be thinking ahead and know what to do if the ball is hit to them... and field it cleanly of course.
3) Eliminate the little league baserunning mistakes. Can't run themselves out of innings on the basepaths.
4) Hitters have to be patient at the plate, work the count.
5) Play with Energy and Enthusiasm. I haven't seen AU play with it since the OM series.

The National Hoopie Service has issued an Invalid Negative Speculation Warning for Miller County until January 2011. This means condtions are ripe for invalid negative speculation.

Something is definitely ripe...It has been confirmed...

By the way, I thought I read where the NCAA was issuing their findings on USC on Friday... that was yesterday. Did I miss it?

It prolly doesn't really matter...all they will get is a swat on the butt and told that they better be good little boys from now on!

Good Wetzel column speculating on the USC ruling (which hasn't been issued yet).

from Rivals...
"Dartmouth is about to eliminate FIU which means Garrett Wittles will have to keep his hair growing all through the offseason. He has not cut his hair during his 56 game hitting streak and is two games short of the NCAA Record set by Robin Ventura. Wittles could look like a ZZ Top cover band by next spring."

NCAA is required to furnish report to the school 48 hours before public release. So question is, did USC get report on Friday? I guess we'll find out Monday when NCAA folks are back in the office. Or maybe as late as Tuesday if the 48 hours=2 "business" days. Or maybe the report still hasn't been delivered to USC.

My guess is we'll hear about USC sanctions before the next iPhone hits the store shelves.

Oops, my fault ...the meter wasn't set to detect "traces".

Jet that warning would have been for: "Unreasonable expectations followed by Anger". Those type storms usually precede the negative speculation storms by a couple of seasons.

Negative speculation storms can suddenly appear if Chiz were to lose favor with those certain aging members of the PTB. It's happened before.

THT ...seems I heard on ESPN radio that the NCAA no longer gives the school the 48 hour notice.

FUTBOL/WORLD CUP

HABOTN/GWCB FIFA Fantasy League is up. Email me at sean_logan@att.net with your e-mail if you're interested in playing. The league code is also here: 245272-98231

you may have, Hoopie. But ESPN also reported the Braves were vying for a record 10th straight win last night. The team record is 13 straight in 1982.

I had not noticed before that LSU opens at UNC on the evening of Sept 4. That's only 4 miles away and I'd love to see it. However, another game 500 miles away requires my attendance that day.

Wow you folks have been busy lately.

I have been busy - cleaning bathrooms! First time to give the ones here at the condo a good cleaning since the boys moved out. Need I say more?

I just figured out that with our house and two AU condos, I have 9 bathrooms to clean!! Something has got to give. Hence our meeting with a realtor in about an hour to see about listing the old condo. Last chance to buy without a realtor fee :)

Guess AU's game will start quite late. Just now if bottom of first inning in USM-JSU game.

cincy - I'd love to, I really would. But, that just ain't in my cards. Now, if you were to just give it to me, think of the tax write-off you could have.

It's funny, Norm. I have quite a few offers to take it off of my hands for free...

Cincy- give me a $100 and the condo and you'll have an even bigger tax write-off.

I haven't seen F4* since around 1p Saturday last week. Thanks to a myriad of travel delays yesterday, it was almost 9:30 last night before I got home so he was already in bed. So to make up; this morning we played Hot Wheels, went to breakfast at our usual spot with Hot Wife and one of our friends, then he and I goofed off which included going to a church car wash, playing at the park, watching some kids play in a baseball tourny, play in our yard, put up a new rope swing, now we're watching Justice League. Sure, we should probably still be outside down at the pool, but I'm tired and he's pleased with what we're doing. It's a good day.

Hot Wife is happy too since all of the above allowed her to run a number of errands.

If the NCAA has any sense of humor at all, they will hit USC with some of the hardest penalties since SMU got the death penalty. At the same time, ESPN should have a prime time special showing Kiffikin's reaction when he learns the news. Playing Rocky Top in the background wouldn't be bad either.

that's nothing, Norm. I went back to bed after breakfast and have sat around coughing all afternoon.

JSU starter Hunter Rivers faced four batters, got one out and gave up a 3-run homer to USM's Adam Doleac

cincy - I'll double, no, I'll quadruple THT's offer. Then, after we've Closed on the deal, I'll take any of the cincy's in attendance out to dinner.

THT - you should quit chain smoking Camels. I hear that stuff is bad for you.

I would not walk a mile for a Camel. In fact, there are very few things for which I'd walk a mile. AU football being one.
