NEW BLOG IS UP!

Go Canes

Any time we can show a Wannabe their place in the natural order it's a good day.

To quote Keoiki...F the Turds!!!!

Go Canes!!!!

Also, UVa played UM tough all season long, taking the regular season series. However, they were the low team on the totem pole in the UM ACC tnmt pool. Worked out okay for them though...

JCane

Meant to say UVa wasn't looking like a great ACC baseball team during the season. During the postseason they've been great.

JCane

FU has knocked the crap out of FSU pitching the last two days, and now goes to Omaha to face the U. It should be exciting. I don't expect an outing like Woodrey had today would have still had us tied vs. a better hitting team though. Abrams was a monster coming in with the based loaded, nobody out, and getting us out of the 3rd unscathed.

UVa, not looking like a great ACC team, along with conference foe, UM, will be in pool A, along with FU, while still having the Arkansas MoSt superregional knotted. Props to Missou St. for taking game 2 after getting destroyed in game 1 and not getting to have their own superregional at home as a host, as should have been.

In the other pool, ACC rival and overall #3 Louisville was beaten in the 10th by perennial powerhouse Cal State Fullerton, wasting the 9th inning comeback run that tied the game.

There will be more Omaha invites determined tomorrow. It's all fun when the U is back in the promised land. Hope to put the fighting turds in the loser bracket quickly.

I'm going to go out on a limb and predict the U plays CSF in the championship, although CSF still has to get another game in Louisville first.

@pbpsports: #Gators are 3 outs away from meeting Miami in the opener at the College World Series

Which colleges have the most eligible students and alumni in the US?

Hinge curated its list of the most desirable universities using two criteria: attractiveness (the alumni from these universities have high "swipe right" rates on their profiles) and academic ranking, using US News & World Report's competitive ranking of national universities, which doesn't include liberal arts colleges.

7. University of Miami

Beauty: These alumni are swiped right on 15.8% more than the average Hinge user.

Brains: US News & World Report ranking: No. 48.

Finally the canes have come back to Omaha! Just what The Rock would have said.

VfB_Cane

So far, it looks like we'll be facing the Gators unless the Noles show some comeback qualities. They are down 8-2 after 4 innings.

Virginia is the second team to qualify for the CWS; they scored 3 runs in the bottom of the 9th being down 4-2 against Maryland to win 5-4 after winning 5-3 on Friday.

The series between Missouri St. and Arkansas is tied. The other four matchups have game #2 scheduled for tomorrow, so no one will advance today.

first opponent will be winner of FLA/ FSU thats already determined.

Game ball to Abrams

Posted by: BEERicane | June 06, 2015 at 03:00 PM

... plus free shakes at the Light the rest of his life!

And big props to Heyward for getting the go ahead run with some excellent running, scoring from 1st with two stolen bases and on a passed ball.

VfB_Cane

Top 8th: Pitching change for VCU.
Iskenderian - walks; Collins - fly out; Thompson - ground out, Iskenderian to 2nd; Kennedy - ground out.

Canes up 9-3 going to the bottom of the 8th.

BEERicane

Game ball to Abrams

VfB_Cane

BTW, for you soccer aficionados: Barca leads Juve 1-0 in the Campions League final.

VfB_Cane

Bottom 7th: Single, fly out, fly out, wild pitch advances runner to 2nd, walk, strike out.

Canes lead 9-3 after 7.
Six outs to go!

Terrance Sullivan

9 outs to Omaha! Miami Hurricanes Finish Them!

VfB_Cane

Abrams' day is done after a career-high 4 innings where he allowed only 1 hit, Mediavilla takes over.

Terrance Sullivan

Boom Baby!

VfB_Cane

Eusebio reaches 1st and scores Lopez, Abreu out at 2nd. Barr grounds out.

Canes leads 9-3 going to the bottom of the 7th.
Nine outs to go!

VfB_Cane

Heyward sac fly scores Kennedy. Canes up 8-3. I smell Omaha.

VfB_Cane

A walk scores Thompson. 7-3, bases loaded, no outs.

VfB_Cane

Lopez singles, Canes up 6-3. Bases still loaded, no outs.

BEERicane

Wow. Great play by VCU short to prevent multiple runs from scoring. Should have gone to first with it, though.

Canes looking to do MAJOR damage. Loaded. 0 out. Up 6-3

VfB_Cane

Kennedy walks, bases loaded with no outs and the Canes up 5-3. Here comes the chance to blow this game open.

VfB_Cane

Top 7th: Iskenderian - double; Collins - walk; Thompson - single, 1 RBI, Collins to 2nd.

Canes lead 5-3, no outs.

VfB_Cane

Abrams retires all 3 batters and the Canes lead 4-3 after 6. After Woodrey's struggles, the Canes have played good defense.

A little offense would help, of cause.

JCane

Man crush on Abrams!

VfB_Cane

Top 6th: Abreu - single; Heyward - sac bunt, Abreu to 2nd; Eusebio - ground out; Barr - strike out. Not a good inning offensively.

Canes still lead 4-3 heading to the bottom of the 6th.

VfB_Cane

Bottom 5th: Another stellar inning by Abrams - strike out, single, fly out, ground out.

Canes lead 4-3 after five innings.

VfB_Cane

Canes lead 4-3 heading to the bottom 4th.

BEERicane

VCU with an E2 to allow a run. Canes 4-3, on what really was a good inning for VCU.

Matt Porter @Mattyports
Meanwhile, UM OL Hunter Knighton posts on Facebook that he is "cleared for everything" and will be returning to camp this August.

Matt Porter @Mattyports
Knighton: "So close to becoming the first d1 player to return from a catastrophic heat stroke. All thanks to God for building my faith ..."

BEERicane

Abrams is the man. Gotta come away with the W here for that remarkable salvage job of his. Because he will need to toss a lot of innings here.

VfB_Cane

Abrams rises to the challenge, retires 3 batters in a row with the bases loaded and the game is still tied 3-3 after three innnings.

VfB_Cane

Abrams strikes out two in a row and there is light at the end of the tunnel. Bases still loaded, two outs.

VfB_Cane

Batter hit by pitch loads the bases and Woodrey's day is done. Abrams will come on, trying to get us out of the 3rd in a bases loaded, no outs situation and the game tied at 3-3.

BEERicane

I'd keep him in there. Let him watch those runs pile up as a result of his inaccurate noodle arm and keep the pen for Sunday.

BEERicane

Lead off walks. Worse than a lead off HR

VfB_Cane

Woodrey walks the first batter, then gives up a double. Runners on 2nd and 3rd with no outs.

VfB_Cane

Bottom 3rd starts with Woodrey back out there. Abrams warming up.

VfB_Cane

Top 3rd: Collins - walk, Thompson - ground out (Collins to 2nd), Kennedy - fly out, Lopez - ground out.

Game tied 3-3.

VfB_Cane

VCU ties the game 3-3 in the bottom of the 2nd. Woodrey is in big trouble, over 40 pitches already and unable to locate his pitches. The bullpen will have to win this one for us.

BEERicane

Woodrey is a middle reliever at best. He throws slower than Maddux without the control.

BEERicane

Awful catching. E2. Run. VCU at 2 with runner in 2nd. No outs.

BEERicane

Lead off walk. A sentence worse than death.

VfB_Cane

Top 2nd: Lopez - fly out, Abreu - walk, Heyward - single, Eusebio - strike out, Barr - RBI single, Iskenderian fly out.
Canes lead 3-1.

TonyCane

Not sure if you have seen thus graduation video yet, but it's pretty funny:

http://www.miaminewtimes.com/news/southwest-miami-high-school-graduation-rocked-by-stone-cold-stunner-7662714

VfB_Cane

Ground out, strike out, fly out and Woodrey gets out of the 1st inning with the Canes in front, 2-1.

VfB_Cane

Yikes. Lead off HR for VCU makes it 2-1.

VfB_Cane

Kennedy strikes out. Top of 1st is done, Canes up 2-0.

VfB_Cane

Now it's 2-0, Thompson scores Barr on a sacrifice fly. 2 outs, Iskenderian on 3rd.

VfB_Cane

Sorry, it's only 1-0, Barr stayed on 3rd.

VfB_Cane

Iskenderian with a 2 RBI double, Canes lead 2-0 with no outs.

VfB_Cane

Top 1st starts with a double by Eusebio, then Barr hits a single, runners on the corners with no outs - great way to start the game!

VfB_Cane

15 minutes till the game starts that should get us to Omaha. Go Canes!

NativeCane

Dem Canes!!!

JCane

Canes win, but we're not super yet. Gotta win one more!

Thx for the call, Ohio. I monitored in between things at work on gamecast as best I could, and was able to get out early to watch the last inning and a half at least. ESPN 3 is great for watching on either the computer or by way of downstreaming to the TV.

Nice d, solid pitching, although the lightning clearly made us make a decision to take out a starter who'd been rolling but might have gotten hurt after having that long a break. Since we got the W, I'm sure he could go again for a few innings on Sunday, if it were necessary. One concern, that I've had since the ACC tnmt, in spite of the great offense all season, is the up and down hitting (never know what to expect any given game the last few weeks....3 runs by Columbia killed us, next day it was irrelevant). Granted, the pitching has gotten tough and we're not sneaking up on anyone now, but the meat of our order isn't doing a whole heckuva lot on a consistent basis. Another worry is Eusebio's base stealing. He was caught twice today, but he was also caught one or 2 x during the regional if memory serves. He is not getting good jumps and is paying for it. We can't afford innings killers if not hitting the ball well anyway.

Concerns aside, this was a game we probably should have lost but didn't. We didn't blow a save, a concern during the ACC tnmt, and the U found a way to win in spite of 4 hits. If we have to have a bad offensive game, finding a way to somehow win it is amazing. No way VCU comes out of today thinking of this as a good game and feeling proud that they could play with the U. They have to be feeling more that they had a golden opportunity, the U wasn't hitting and they still couldn't get the W. It's demoralizing. :) Let's pour it on tomorrow and get 'er done.

UVa won their opener with Maryland, so the 1 seed slot could potentially be an ACC team. The 4 seed slot is not looking good for FSU at the moment, with the last score I saw showing FU well ahead. The 8 seed slot had Arkansas as an easy winner over Mo State. These all matter for the U, as these are the superregionals whose winners will be grouped together in pool A at the CWS, along the winner of the 5 seed slot in Coral Gables. 1 will play 8, and 4 will play 5, in the CWS openers.
