Remember this about last night, if nothing else: Andrew Moore had not, in his college career, given up even three earned runs in a start before last night. That is where we're at going into tonight's matchup; in two games against the nation's second-best pitching staff, we've still managed to score five runs a game.
Much to my surprise, it appears as though Brad Hill is going to go with his freshman closer, right-hander Jake Matthys (9-1, 1.89) to start the critical elimination game. Oregon State will counter with their usual #3, junior lefty Ben Wetzler (8-1, 1-98). Winner goes to Omaha; loser's done. Simple as that.
Swing those bats tonight, Cats. And I don't mean in the futile gesture sort of way.
