Casey sounds like a depressed MR.
Last night I didn’t notice Wetzler’s usual enthusiasm and wondered if he was depressed/distracted/not himself. Good to see his performance so far today. Only 62 pitches through 5, he’ll be ready to go an inning or two if the Beavs play tonight, you know he has the heart.
Not surprised Wetzler is getting it done. He’s a big time player and no doubt he would be at his best. Would be nice if he could get a little help from the lineup
The freshmen are the only ones producing at this point. If they somehow win this game, Casey will need to make some changes at the top of the lineup. It’s pretty shocking how bad Conforto has been. He has usually has been big time in the postseason for Oregon State. Looks so lost at the plate
Finally get a break.
Any tv for this game besides the espn bases loaded program?
ESPN3 on your computer.
I can’t find this game on tv or the pac site. what gives?
Online only, watching on my xbox espn app, just as good.
A couple breaks and it is 4-0 Beavs, so, there is life after death!
Is it just me, or is this Ump really inconsistent with his zone.
I thought the same thing yesterday.
I’d pull an 1890s baseball move. take wetzler out, keep him loose, and use him again tonight…
If they win, a strategy worth trying.
Except they burned their bullpen last night for some unknown and stupid reason…
Wetzler has lost it.
They are determined to lose I guess.
Looks like it…ugh
Update? Some of us can’t watch. Last I saw was 5-0 Beavs.
5-1 Jason. Had bases loaded with no outs. Morrison fumbled a sure DP ball.
5-1 Bottom of the seventh inning.
T8th, 5-1 Beav’s.
Hendrix with a 2 out triple scores Matt Damon…….Caleb Hamilton.
103 pitches for Ben t8.
112 pitches. On to the botto
Top of the 9th.
Conforto whiffs out on a 71 mph pitch.
B9th. Wetzler on to try to extend the season.
Game Beav’s. Ben comes up huge. He has been money the last two years. 128 pitch CG.
First game in the regionals to which I’ve been able to listen – Mike Parker has the loquacious, maddening habit of describing the play – even though it has ended – before telling the result.
Has conforto had a hit yet this weekend?
Yup, started the 5 run rally with a solid single.
Yeah a single in the last game. Got a standing O from the crowd and the guys in the dugout gave him the ball
That was pretty funny.
Scott Schultz came back for the opportunity that presents itself tonight. The game he pitched in relief against LSU in the regional two years ago was one of the most clutch performances ever by a Beaver pitcher. I hope that same pitcher shows up tonight.
Just got home from fishing for the weekend and saw your post on the previous thread about OSU should be fine against UC Irvine’s middle tier finesse pitching last night. Ummm, when I heard Friday night that Elliot Surrey was going to be pitching for the Eaters last night I got extremely worried. You see, I watched Surrey pitch for the Corvallis Knights last summer and he was arguably the best pitcher in the West Coast Conference. Middle tier and finesse my ass. Either way, I hope our boys are pissed after that butt raping UCI gave them last night. Go Beavs!
Hey all you negative Nancys
Any word on who’s starting for irvine?
schultz is starting
I meant which irvine pitcher will the beavs face
oSu is through, face the winner of our region.
Ducks just got sent home in the bottom of the 9th. Pitching completely fell apart with the game tied 2-2.
Peterson should not be hitting 2nd anymore. Should be at the bottom
Beavs a bit unlucky as Conforto just misses. Then makes a baserunning blunder, probably would’ve scored on Keyes base hit.
WTF is with Schultz?
3 hit by pitch
He’s gonna throw a no-no with 10 HBP
I could live with that.
I’m sure we’d all be happy with that scenario.
Weren’t they taught that if you have 2 strikes you swing at the next close pitch?
Not this game, I’m watching few other games at the same time and lots of 3rd strike and looking
Great play by Keyes!
Conforto is back baby.
Conforto’s avg arm throws another out at the dish
Good ‘ol Mo is back. As Hendrix follows Conforto’s throw with a double.
Keyes coming up huge. RBI single.
Offense coming to life. Let’s hope it continues. 4 runs across already.
Thiiis is more like it. Clark with one to the gap that gets to the wall. 4-0 Beavs
Great catch by Conforto.
good running catch by Davis at the track and the Beavs getting the job done and Schultz good enough.
end of 5 and it’s 4-0. Eater starter up to 79 pitches.
As a bonus!!
Really bad baserunning by Hamilton. Only thing they haven’t done well is run the bases. It has cost them two runs
Wasted opportunity, Hamilton at 3b on a steal and throwing error with one out and gets stranded. Hendrix with IBB and Peterson grounds out. 1-16 in the tourney
End of 7. Eater pitcher over 100 pitches but gets out of a jam when Clark GIDP with two on.
Schultz at 85 pitches through 8 full.
For tomorrow, does UCI have any MORE Corvallis Knights pitchers? It would be nice if their pitcher wasn’t familiar with our ball park… Geez
CG 2 hit shutout for Schultz. What a clutch performance. And he looked like he wants the ball tomorrow.
Designated home team will be decided by a coin flip. Beaver defense was stellar behind Schultz. At least 4 excellent plays and Conforto’s throw to the plate. It would’ve been nice to get to their pen but the Eater thrower put in quite a performance himself.
Coin flip complete, Beavs will be visitors.
Really dislike. Really stupid
I don’t mind batting first but what’s the point of changing dugouts? That’s part of the home field advantage, being comfortable in your surroundings. It’s a crappy deal for the seeded teams.
Jim Wilson says a dugout is a dugout – makes no difference- I think it would on a hot day in terms of sun and shade but I have no experience with dugouts.
This thread good for tomorrow or you guys want a new one? I’m going to be out most of the day. What time is the game?
Ok good, should be home. Let me know if yous jerks want a thread.
Hey!! .. who you callin JERK?!? ….oh, wait, ….yeah, you nailed me… 🙁
NO NEW THREAD! …(you’ll jinx it!)
Man, this team didnt roll over and die! Way to GO!! Lose or not monday, I am proud!!!!!!!!!!!!
Agree. No jinxing.
Pitching predictions: Davis starts and goes 3 assuming he can find the plate. Thompson for three or four and Max in for the last couple. Get some early runs boys!
5 innings and a quality start. Dylan picks up the win. Karma since he got screwed out of a win earlier in the year.
Only has a couple pitches so 2nd time through the lineup gets tricky unless he is really lighting up the radar gun.
“Moore, Fry, Wetzler & Schultz May be good for an inning. Davis, Thompson, Jackson, Engelbrekt & Reser must limit ‘Eaters to 4 runs”………per Jim Wilson.
Just say no to Reser. He has gone in the tank the last month. He did deliver earlier in the season, but those days are long gone.
If you are talking about the stat quality start you have to go 6 innings.
Go Beav’s !!!
It’s all going to come down to who can get to today’s starters early and which bullpen can hang on.
Looking at UC Irivine’s stats, their 4th starter is Manarino. 3-3 on the year with a 2.94 ERA.
Beavs should go with Davis. While he does have walk issues, he’s the best chance to win. Plus if he starts in the RF, and comes into pitch, they’ll risk losing his bat for the game if he doesn’t finish the game on the mound.
If whoever the Beavs start can go 6, they have a great shot at advancing.
Can someone clarify that rule for me? I remember the announcers made a comment last night too implying the Beavs would be in danger of losing Davis’ bat late in the game is he was used as a reliever and I didn’t understand why.
Scenario: If “Pitcher X” starts the game and goes three innings before he is pulled for Davis, why couldn’t the substitution be “outfielder 4” into the game for “pitcher x” with Davis moving from RF to pitcher? Then in the 7th, couldn’t “pitcher Y” come out of the bullpen with the substition being made for “outfielder 4”, having Davis and “pitcher Y” switch positions, putting Davis back in RF and keeping his bat in the lineup?
My thoughts as well. Seems to me the guy who plays RF in place of Dylan is the one whose bat is at risk of being lost if Dylan is pulled from the mound (or the “bump” for you young pups). The question I haven’t thought much about is, how does the DH come into play here?
I’d like a clarification too, I was always under the impression two guys could rotate between pitcher and outfield the whole game every other batter. Maybe not be entitled to warmup pitches is all. But alas my expertise is in track, not baseball.
Here’s how the DH rule works,
1. A player can be both the DH or P. He can be replaced as either and stay in the game as the other. (Say Davis starts as the DH/P, he can stay in the game as the DH when relieved. If he’s pinch hit as DH, he can still pitch.) This only applies when the player starts the game as P/DH.
This is why Davis has only started in the games he’s pitched.
2. If Davis starts in RF, the lineup will have a DH in the lineup. If Davis relieves the starter, he becomes the P/DH and whoever the DH was is now the RF. Davis can’t go back to RF unless another player in the field comes on to pitch. If Davis is relieved, he is out of the game and the place in the order is now occupied by the pitcher.
This is where it essentially becomes the AL DH rule. A fielder comes into pitch and the “DH” goes out into the field. Thereby losing the DH for the rest of the game. Unless the pitcher switches with Davis.
It’s a hybrid rule between high school and MLB. Designed to keep the good hitting pitchers in the game.
Good stuff thanks for the info!
Here is a bit more information re UC Irvine pitching and tonight’s game.
Junior left-hander Evan Manarino, UC’s 4th starter this season, appeared in 19 games, started 10 games, pitched 52 innings, walked only 7 batters, and struck out 42. However, opposing batters hit .317 against him. He is the likely starter for UCI tonight.
UCI’s star pitcher, Andrew Morales, threw 107 pitches on Friday against UNLV. With two day’s rest, Morales might be able to go a couple of innings in relief if UCI needs him.
Other than that, the likely relievers tonight for UCI are as follows:
Sam Moore (closer, threw 13 pitches against OSU on Saturday)
43 innings pitched
.223 batting average against
Jimmy Litchfield (threw 21 pitches vs OSU on Saturday)
37 innings pitched
.248 batting average against
27 innings pitched
.262 batting average against
Mitch Merten (threw 10 pitches vs OSU on Saturday)
24 innings pitched
.287 batting average against
Kyle Davis (has a live arm and good stats, but coming back from injury and has not pitched that much this season — could be a wild card in tonight’s game….)
19 innings pitched
.156 batting average against
Need to score early and often.
Jake Thompson starts. That’s the word on campus.
Hopefully with a very quick hook
Davis makes more sense to start but if Casey thinks his walk issues are too much, then Thompson is the next guy up.
I doubt Moore will come in and pitch. He’s not quite Jonah Nickerson yet. Maybe maybe he closes the game out.
Wow that would be a little bit of a surprise
Gregg Gottlieb hired by Tinkle… not the first Gottlieb to be an assistant here.
Question: Does this mean Doug will stop being a shit about the real OSU?
any online source for watching the game?
I had ESPN3 on appletv yesterday. Not today. (Not a cable subscriber). Its on ESPN U if you can find that.
Thompson won’t be in long
Stanford with a sweet walk off home run to advance. Go Beavs!
Andy Peterson is basically another Max Gordon who gets on base less at this point. No idea why he hits second. He’s a 9 hole hitter. Automatic out
Wonder if the piece on his parents was bad timing, he has been off his game ever since it dropped.
Time to get a new pitcher
Too late Nate is back. Should have had someone up between innings. Looks like it’s gonna burn the Beavers
Can’t give them extra outs, those four last inning lead to a run. Ice has been good, but he needed to get those.
This game feels over. Beavers look lifeless offensively once again and Yeskie blew it big time.
Have to agree. Has the feel of Sat’s game.
Coach Casey is a great coach, but Gillespie is beating him bad. Yeskie finally gets to go to the mound about 4 batters too late. This is on the coaches at this point….I am so disappointed, we are just giving these guys the opportunity to go on. 5 innings is all you wanted out of Jackson (and we got it)….not impressed at all with the management of this fiasco at this point!
Jesus H Christ.
Well that wasnt a very beneficial pitching change…
Casey has been totally out coached.
So much for Jackson. Geez, can’t afford to hit them
Yeskie looks as lost as the rest of this set of pitchers……something wrong with Andrew Moore at the end of 5 to finish our side of this? No we go with fr, hbp man, now englebreck….we did not develop a bullpen during the season an it shows big time now….Most disappointed I have been with Beaver baseball in a long time!!!
Offense stinks right now and the bullpen has been an issue for years. Yeskie doesn’t develop bullpen arms. You don’t win a title with a crap pen, yet it’s been a problem for a few seasons. Probably won’t change any time soon either.
I feel okay, the Beavs will score 4 runs over the next 2 innings and win 5-3…Calling it.
Irvine looks the part, well coached. Deserved to get in the tourney
Only the freshman can hit.
Well that probably does it.
How much has Mike Parker been drinking today? He’s getting pretty hard to follow
I’m on my way to goss with napkins right now
I haven’t watched any of it. Am I better off not turning it on?
Ps. Is Jack dead? Would anyone know?
It has been painful.
Like Sat., a passed ball on Ice opened the gate and this team takes advantage of chances.
Yes. Beavers are dead in the water. This looks like 6-1 or 7-1 loss. They’re done.
Now that the game is lost, they bring in Andrew.
Looking at how they went through relievers in the 6th, it looks like the plan was get to the 7th and let Moore finish it. It wish they went to Max earlier in the 6th, instead of trying to save him in case Andrew struggled.
Pitching has not been the problem. Our offense is dead, the best swings we have had are from our freshmen. Peterson and Clark have had horrible at bats.
Morrison should have been in the 2 hole a while ago. Peterson cannot hit. Amazing that Casey didn’t realize how much of a liability Peterson is. Conforto never has anyone on base when he’s up and never gets a pitch to hit then.
Shocked by how poor the offense has been…I figured 5-6 runs tonight but nope…Look like they are pressing just as bad as Friday and Saturday…Casey has to learn how to keep his guys lose. They aren’t the unknowns anymore. They are the hunted.
Our fan base sucks. Where’s the support?
Tough when you are in shock..
This is hard to watch.
This is the most I have commented ever. Yeskie needs to follow Lees and leave….we need a different mindset than complete game starts or nothing (no bullpen). UCI looks good, but I would be surprised if they win one at Okie State. They so far are the better team!!!
A four spot would be nice here for us
5 outs left.
I’m ready for a new thread.
Peko pass that English class?
Damn, if Davis hits that to left it may have gone off the wall or gotten out. Bummer. Can’t remember the last time a ball went out to dead center at Goss. Balls just die in front of the track there
Why wasn’t Moore in at the start of the 6th?
new thread up. this one is bad luck
