05.Jun.2011 Baseball: Oregon State @ Georgia

Rating: 5.0/5 (1 vote cast)

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.

5-3, Beavers

    So, if you could decide, which team would you rather see? Creighton Jays must have the better “book” on this current crop of Beavs but I don’t know if that is enough for me to vote for the Bulldogs.

    Still tied, top of 8th inning.

      Creighton has the better pitching and defense, and they seem to have focus and an “it” quality about them that’s dangerous. So, I’d rather see Georgia. It’s pretty even…you can make a case either way.

    Cal and Rice are in a rain delay in the middle of the 8th. They just put the tarp on the field. Zona already played their way back to the final series against aTm, and it looks like UCLA will do the same to play Irvine.

    I don’t care which team comes through against us. I just want to see us be consistent with our game. That should be enough to get them through tonight and carry over to next week.

        If Cal beats rice, and Kent St beats Texas in one of two then it wasn’t a good showing for the Texas regional hosts. aTm is the only one in the driver’s seat against Zona.

        I guess Dallas Baptist is essentially playing at home, but it’s not their field.

        Purke might still be back at TCU. We’ll see where he goes in the draft tomorrow, but I think he’s demanding about half again what he’s going to get for signing. Personally, I would take $5m and go play ball.

      With Stamps it’s always been about making contact. When he makes contact he can be a tremendous hitter, but he hasn’t made contact enough. He has made contact a lot this weekend and we’ve seen the results. More of it would be nice.

      I disagree on this one…getting to 3rd with 1 out is huge…you can score on an out instead of a hit. Georgia executed perfectly, and that’s what it took to get him. Good risk, bad result.

        Exactly. Most of the time Keyes gets a triple out of that. That was a FAST transfer on the cutoff.

    Got to give Casey credit, earlier he uses the ‘ol busted bus thing to motivate the team and now pulls the switch on the lights to give time to treat Tony!

    What I liked about this game: OSU didn’t have the opportunity to cruise, but showed that they can gut out a tough win.

    What I hated about this game: Starting Osich and baserunning errors.

    OSU should be pleased with themselves after this weekend.

      Pretty crazy stuff. OSU would have an advantage with it being at home. Second time they would be expected to play a SR in Nashville and got it at home instead. The baseball gods don’t want the Beavers in Nashville apparently.

        It’s the CMA music festival, actually. Bonnaroo is happening the same weekend but it’s about ninety miles away. And I wouldn’t get your hopes up. The NCAA might have booked hotels in advance, or they might not consider it justified to send the national seed across the country.

        I don’t think that it would be justified to send Vanderbilt to Corvallis for that reason, no matter what the hotel situation is. One of the advantages of a national seed is that you get to sleep in your own bed. Tough beans for the unseeded team if they’re visiting on a busy hotel weekend. If the positions were reversed and the Pope, Barack Obama, and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad were all coming to Corvallis next weekend, I wouldn’t want the baseball team to have to travel to Nashville.

        Maybe the guys can camp out in the outfield. They can play with silly string and glow sticks and ask each other if they believe in God.

    I find Osich telling Casey “I need extra rest” and then throwing one inning all a bit suspicious given it was the eve of the draft. Makes you wonder who’s in his ear. Casey’s patience with him seems shot, too.

      Osich declined to talk to the media. His velocity was poor. The draft is tomorrow. Who knows what’s going on. Again, I think he’s got potential and I would love to see him play pro ball, but I don’t want to see him take the mound for OSU again this season.

      FWIW…According to the GT Osich has had a stiff back.

      “Osich didn’t have his usual velocity and control. He told the coaches he felt stiff before recent games and needed an extra day off between starts.

      Since his no-hitter at UCLA on April 30 he has an 0-3 record and two no decisions. His ERA over that stretch was 5.32.

      “He has been stiff, sore in his back,” OSU coach Past Casey said. “He hasn’t used some of those muscle for more than a year. I really don’t know. I just know he didn’t look right. He wanted to stay out there because he’s a competitor, but I didn’t think that’s the right thing to do.”

      As for his availability in next weekend’s Super Regional against Vanderbilt, Casey didn’t know.

      “He’ll see the trainer (today) and team doctor (today),” Casey said. “I really don’t know. He didn’t have a lot of answers, but he didn’t have any command.”

      That is just a dumb statement. The Beavs really have played just as well on the road this year as they have in the State of Oregon. I understand that many on this site don’t understand that critical doesn’t mean fatalistically negative, but let’s get a grip. This team has been a great joyride this year. Enjoy it, however long it lasts.

      Angry gripes about the Orange tinted glass wearing fans that feel OS can do no wrong. I fully understand that perspective and that annoys me as well. But I think it even worse the fans that feel that the sky is always falling and that OS only wins because Neptune and Saturn have aligned. Being critical is important in continuous improvement to make sure that nobody becomes complacent and that the right questions are being asked. Being negative is destructive and unfortunately extremely contagious.
