The Morning After - Weekend Edition

O's 7 Phillies 2: The Phillies home woes continue as Rich Hill pitched a rare good game holding the Phillies to 2 first inning runs over 6+. Antonio Bastardo pitched relatively well allowing 4 runs over 7 innings. Jayson Werth, the only Phillie who showed up for this homestand, had a 2 rbi double for the Phillies in the first inning giving them an early 2 run lead, beofre th Phillies decided to put their bats away for the night. For anyone looking for a bright spot, the Phillies got 7 innings from a starter and only used Bastardo and Jack Taschner so they should have a fairly rested bullpen for tonight's game. The NL East lead is down to 2 games. Happ looks to right the ship tonight against Brad Bergesen, another no-name who the Phillies will try to make look like Cy Young. No, I think Happ pitches a gem tonight and Hamels wins tomorrow. Go Phils

LSU 14 Arkansas 5: LSU cruises into the CWS Final riding a 13 game winning streak. Arkansas tried to keep it close using Closer Stephen Richards to start the game due to an exhausted rotation. He did, up until the third inning when LSU scored 3 runs off of him and relievers. There was no stopping LSU. Tigers starter Anthony Ranaudo pitched 6 scoreless innings, only throwing 77 pitches, which may make him available for game 2 of the finals on Tuesday.

Texas 4 Arizona State 3: Two outs from forcing a rematch to decide who makes the CWS Final Arizona State could not hold on. Texas' Cameron Rupp hit a game-tying solo homerun with one out in the ninth and two batter later Texas won on a walk off homer by Connor Rowe. The Instant Classic sets up a CWS final between Texas and LSU.
U.S. OPEN: Mike Weir (-6) has a 2 stroke lead after round 1.
U.S. Basketball: Villanova's Corey Fisher and Penn State's Taylor Battle are two of twelve collegiate players named to the U.S. Team for the World University Games in Belgrade, Serbia in July. Road Trip anyone?
