WHAT I SAW AT THE CWS, DAY TEN
A repeat of last year, essentially. In 2014 Vanderbilt won game one of the CWS Finals over UVa 9-8, before the Cavs roared back to take game two 7-2. This year is a very similar scenario as the Wahoos took game two tonight 3-0 with an unsung cast of stars.

CWS 2015 – Day Seven

Tyler Alexander seems to be making a throw from the dark recesses of the Frogs' season. But really, he's just making a throw to first during the first inning.

CWS 2015 – Day Six

LSU pitcher Parker Bugg must feel a million miles away as he sits on the Tiger bench in their half of the ninth inning, just hoping his teammates can score four more runs to where he can pitch again and extend the season another game.

We’re through two rounds of the 2015 College World Series and the two unbeatens are Virginia and Vanderbilt… just like last year. The two teams we’ve said goodbye to are Arkansas and Cal State Fullerton. The remaining four teams all stand at 1-1 in Florida, Miami, LSU and TCU. You find any of that surprising? And secondly, are we headed for a CWS Finals rematch?

Due to Mother Nature’s major form of intrusion, we had three games conclude today and also had this turn into Late Night at TD Ameritrade. The continuation of Sunday night’s Fullerton-Vanderbilt game was supposed to start at 11:05 am, but due to persistent, even maddening rain, today’s first pitch didn’t take place till 2:02pm. The last pitch of the day finally came at 12:26am.

 
 

CWS 2015 – Day Two

 

Cody Jones was one of TCU's heroes and gets that kind of welcome coming back to the dugout after throwing out LSU's Jared Foster at home plate to preserve a scoreless game.

The 2015 College World Series rolled on today with TCU becoming the third team to start the week with a win and Vanderbilt and Cal State Fullerton had an upset brewing in the sixth inning before the rains came down to put a halt to the game. The two teams will continue their game at 11am on Monday. See you there.
