05.Jun.2011 Baseball: Oregon State @ Georgia
Georgia wins 5-4 in 11 innings.
Tonight's pitching match up is Josh Osich (6-4, 3.57) vs Blake Dieterich (3-3, 3.43). Whatever pitching Georgia had is being taxed. Rumor has it Hershel Walker was warming up in the bullpen…lol.
The Beavers will be the away team tonight. If they lose, they'll be the home team tomorrow.
I don't know about you guys, but I wasn't impressed by Georgia or Creighton. The Bulldogs pass my "eye test", and I keep hearing they're battle tested, having played the toughest schedule, and come into this tournament with momentum. Yada yada. All that might be true, but what I saw this afternoon was an average team.
The only way I see the Beavers losing this game is if Josh Osich gives it away. The offense should be good for at least 5 runs.
Prediction: This is a tough call. On one hand, I feel the Beavers should win this game somewhere in the 5-3 neighborhood. On the other, I can't stand Josh Osich and have no faith at all in him. It's easy to envision him throwing this game away and putting the team in a bind come Monday. Which do I go with? Well, I am going with what I expect to happen. And that is the better team finds a way to win. Pat Casey, please have a short leash.
