Postponing the Inevitable
Last night, I got home later than usual, and the Carolina/LSU baseball game had already started. Carolina was up 1-0 in the top of the 1st, and second baseman Kyle Seager had just been hit by a pitch. This loaded the bases and brought senior third baseman Chad Flack to the plate where he was the recipient of four straight balls to walk in a run making the score 2-0 with the bases still loaded. Then the lightning struck and the rain poured. And for three hours, Carolina and LSU sat in the dugouts at Rosenblatt Stadium in Omaha, NE hoping it would stop so they could get back to business.
This is an elimination game in bracket 2 of the 2008 College World Series. One of these two teams is going home at the end of the game. I’m hopeful it’s NOT Carolina and that the rain didn’t wash away Carolina’s momentum. It took three hours for the NCAA to decide to postpone the game until tonight at 7pm where the top of the 1st will resume, but really all the rain did was postpone the inevitable for one of these teams.
