Rating: 0.0/5 (0 votes cast)

8pm start.

That was a close call last night. I’m not as down on the offense as some guys here. Beavs should be okay.
UC Irvine threw their best guy (Morales) yesterday, so they are into their mid-tier, finesse pitching.

Go Beavs

      They will get there. I think Petey being out was more of an issue than Keyes. But Keyes getting back to form will help.

      Petey just provides that “get’em on” and “move ’em over” spark. Conforto and Davis both hit better when the opposition is pitching out of the stretch. Clark seems to be hot all on his own. But the late part of the order does much better when Petey is in play. Morrison and Hamilton aren’t forced into being what we need from Petey, therefore, they can play their ball and let the top of the order bring them in.

    This is reminding me of last year in the tournament. Last year at this time they also had a terrible time getting hits. Conforto is way to anxious at the plate.

      He’s way ahead of junk. He sees it. He can probably hit some of it, which frustrates him. But nobody is going to try to challenge him with a FB. He might do well to show bunt a couple times just to challenge a P to throw him something fast. That would at least give him a good read and the upper hand when he goes in for the kill.

      Afternoon game has to be Thompson/Schultz. Schultz is their fourth best pitcher, gonna have to ride with him as a starter most likely cause the options are very limited. Big reason why it was so important to win tonight cause of their lack of starting pitching depth. They’ll go Wetzler should they make it to game tomorrow night

    If Hendrix scores on that passed ball, they need 3 in the 9th to tie, which is doable with a good inning. 4 is nearly impossible. They may have intentionally walked Davis, too, instead of him popping out. Huge play.

    Some really shitty approaches at the plate tonight. To me, walks mean more when you have some real power in the line up. I guess trying to get walked works when you have one of the best pitching staffs in the nation, but when the pitching fails it’s ugly. Too late to change now, let’s hope the pitching is amazing in the next game.

      Doubt it, they look lifeless. Irvine is destroying their mystique. Hope I am wrong but I wouldn’t be surprised if UNLV gets another shot on them tomorrow night. Beavs look dead on arrival this year. Potentially a brutal ending to a great season but that’s life. Some teams get hot, some go into a slump…This feels like the debt owed for the 2007 run right now.

      You mean you didn’t want to see the best hitter in the P-12 try a lame bunt for a base hit or one of the top pitchers in the nation hit four players in one game? How about an experienced veteran try to take second on a hit that was clearly just a single? You already mentioned the numerous strikes taken by players with a whole season under their belts. It sounds like you missed an “unforgettable” live experience.

        I did not mind the Conforto bunt attempt, he just needs to get the bunt laid down. The thought process was right though. He needs to get teams out of that shift and bunt for singles is the best way to do it. I remember watching Griffey lay down the occasional bunt as a Mariner when teams were giving it to him…Its a smart play, gotta execute though which is did not do.

    I too waited in line for tickets, and got them. Sat with the Anteater crowd. Yes, it was “unforgettable”.

    From the absolute get-go it was apparent the Beavs had let the pressure get to them. The energy and simple joy of being on the field was apparent in everything the “eaters” did from pre-game onward. Since I was drowning in eaters I have an honest question: were the Beav faithful not so faithful right from the beginning of the game?

    An eater fan asked me why the crowd was so quiet and when I told him of our apprehensiveness about our offense he replied, “But, thats when you need to pick them up”. As others have said, the pressure got to the Beavs last night and there is only more pressure now.

    Turnarounds happen, but you gotta swing the bat and play smart.
    GO BEAVS !!

    EDIT: Fear another word for Pressure, see Jason Quick’s piece:

    I guess I didn’t realize that the teams the Beavs faced in the regular season must have been full of a lot of real wild pitchers. Some of the Beavs have unimpressive batting averages, but great on base percentages (100 points higher in some cases). Now that they are facing pitchers who are consistently throwing strikes they look clueless up at the plate.

    Obviously, the Beavs are in serious trouble, for all the reasons noted in the comments above. The situation is epitomized by the epic struggles of Michael Conforto, but other OSU stars are underperforming, too — many Beavs seem to be playing with a lack of poise and confidence.

    What to do? If I were Pat Casey, I would send a message by NOT starting Wetzler in the first game today. I would call on the team to pull together and do what it takes to beat UNLV without their senior ace on the mound. Yes, it’s a big risk, and this risky strategy might fail. But if it succeeds, it could turn everything around.

    If we can beat UNLV without Wetzler, I think we would likely beat UC Irvine tonight in the second game behind Wetzler. That would give us momentum going into a Monday night finale against UC Irvine (where both teams would be employing an all-hands-on-deck strategy, but where OSU would have the advantage both in terms of momentum, and also because of the home crowd). And if we could emerge as the winner of this regional after all this, I think we would be a more formidable team going forward (with some of our stars — esp. Conforto and Fry — taking advantage of the opportunity to shine). I would then expect us to win the super regional, and to do well in Omaha.

    Of course, that’s a lot of “ifs”. But I think it starts with the decision on whether to save Wetzler for the second game today. Yes, it’s a huge risk. But I’m hoping Pat Casey decides to go with that strategy. We’ll see soon enough….

      “We have nothing to fear but Anteaters themselves.” Franklin Delano Schwartz 1941. Casey should have used this famous quote last night. JB

    It all started before the first pitch. You should’ve seen how pumped up the eaters dugout was during the lineup announcement. Whereas the Beavs looked like it was just another game. Fry’s biggest mistake wasn’t the WP but the decision to go home instead of conceding the run and getting the out. If he goes to first I think he gets out of the inning with just the one run scored. But that’s the pressure you put on yourselves when the offense isn’t going. Fry wasn’t sure that his team could score more than 2 runs.

      The decision to go home compounded itself with a carry over later when Fry did go to 1b even though he had a force at the plate. Your comment that Fry wasn’t sure his team could score more than two runs is spot on, as is the observation that it all started before the first pitch.

    Also I don’t think Hendrix not coming home on the ball that got away was an egregious error. Down 4 and one out you certainly don’t want to become the second out on that play with your best chance of getting knocked in at the plate. Who woulda bet that Davis was going to pop out? Stay put, let Davis do his job.

      BS, that was a terrible error, you go there and you suddenly have runners at 2nd and 3rd where a base hit scores 2 runs bringing you within 1 run….They might even walk Davis leaving 1 out and the tying run on 1st base…All you need is a double and its a tie game. Staying on 3rd on that passed ball was a huge error….Could have changed the entire inning. Defending it is defending passive baseball. Passive baseball loses games.

        Davis was pretty aggressive trying to turn a long single into a double. That didn’t work out so well.

          No, Davis was being stupid…Not aggressive. There is a fairly sizable difference between the 2 situations. Sorry but a guy standing on 3rd when a passed ball gets all the way to a back stop is not defendable.

    90+% of the setup is staying in the winner’s bracket. Wetzler needed to get the call against Irvine. He is on fire and his ERA is 0.76. Then Fry has a low pressure chance to finish the clean sweep of the Regional. Instead of great odds we now face a mountain to climb because we went with less than our best.

      I actually agree with this, I understood going with Moore on Friday but don’t get why Casey didn’t go with Wetzler and his experience last night. Fry has been great but he hadn’t been in this situation before and you don’t know what the pressure will do to a guy. It was a bad risk by Casey IMO, Wetzler should have pitched last night then hopefully gets the relaxed first postseason start in a game where a loss doesn’t mean quite as much.

    We need Shultz to get a win and Wetzler to get a win in order to set up Mondays winner takes all. So, which teams is easier for Shultz, UNLV or Irvine? I’d put the more difficult match up on Wetzler. Anything short of two wins today simply doesn’t cut it in my book. Set yourself up to win both.

      You worry about what is right in front of you, you can’t win them both at 2pm. If Wetzler gives you the best chance to beat UNLV (and I think he does) you pitch him. Worry about Irvine when you get there. You have to beat UNLV first, do whatever that takes to get that done.

    Couldn’t have started much worse than that. Pick off and Conforto leaving his bat on his shoulder….Awesome start….

    A high school pitcher could throw a shutout against the Beavers at this point
