22.Apr.2011 Baseball: WSU @ OSU (Game 2)
With 90+ comments in the Game 1 posting, a new writeup beckoned.
It was great to see some new commenters in yesterday's post. It shows the baseball team is finally garnering interest. From what I hear they're the talk of Corvallis right now, even more so than football. I don't doubt that. For spring football to be interesting there would need to be legit position battles or a young, dynamic player in the mix. The Beavs have neither.
On paper today's matchup, Sam Gaviglio (6-1, 1.34) vs Chad Arnold (0-3, 7.65), clearly favors Oregon State.
Keep an eye on Sam's battery mate, Parker Berberet, who suffered a hamstring cramp in yesterday's game. He's the one player they can't lose.
What else…Oh…Cliff Kirkpatrick described Nygren's outing as "lights out"
RHP James Nygren (6-1) was lights out in his start. He defeated WSU ace Adam Conley. Nygren struck out eight in eight innings.
I felt obligated to quibble with his accolades.
