  • 40acressports's avatar Homeplate umpire just gave Arizona St warning about arguing balls and strikes. I think ump has called pretty consistent game. #ut #cws about 1 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar Pretty shocked Clark isn’t bunting here. Augie going for the throat? #ut #cws about 2 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar Cameron Rupp tries to catch everything rather than just blocking and smothering it. Results in more wild pitches than necessary. #UT #cws about 2 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar #UT going back to the bullpen. Jungmann will come on with 2 on and 1 out. #cws about 2 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar RT @kbohls Some pitchers duels. The two aces for the teams went 5 1/3 inn combined and gave up 15 hits and 12 runs. Go figure. #ut# cws about 2 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar ESPN censors half a second to slow, miss the F word and then have 3 seconds of silence after it. Is there a 5-second delay on this? #UT #CWS about 3 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar According to Hershiser, if you make a guy look ugly you shouldn’t throw that pitch anymore. That’s some odd logic. #UT #CWS about 3 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar Got out of here in a hurry… RT @aTrubow: Ramirez drills the second home run of the game. It’s 4-0 ASU. #ut #cws about 3 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar Torres hits one right where he did in the 1st inning, but this time ASU had 1B guarding line. 1 out for #UT in the 3rd. #cws about 3 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar @Dustin_McComas As someone who hasn’t watched #UT much until the Regionals etc, he seems lackadaisical back there. Seems mental. about 4 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar Ruffin gets 8th batter of the inning to fly out to CF to finally end bottom of the 2nd. Headed to the 3rd, #UT 0, ASU 3. #CWS about 4 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar Kole Calhoun, who hit ASU homer for games 1st run, looks like Ham from the Sandlot: http://twitpic.com/7kwkr #ut #cws about 4 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar Single to right scores another runner (who was on 2nd due to passed ball) and now Arizona State leads #UT 3 to zip. #cws about 4 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar Mistake by C Cameron Rupp on pitchout gives ASU another run. Just missed it. Rupp has not impressed defensively in #cws. #UT 0, ASU 2 about 4 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar Hit and run worked but not traditionally, SS Loy can’t get to pop up as he breaks to cover 2nd base. 1st & 3rd with 1 out for ASU. #ut #cws about 4 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar RT @ESPN_CWSKyle: 2nd HR in 2 nights for Calhoun. The ball is flying better to left than right this year. about 4 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar Opposite field homer for ASU to lead off the bottom of the 2nd. Didn’t get out by much, but #UT now down 1-0. #cws about 4 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar Through 2 innings #UT has stranded 4 baserunners and struck out 4 times. Really looking bad against Leake’s curveball. #cws about 4 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar RT @kbohls: Already two walks by Leake after 21 all year.#ut #cws about 4 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar Erin Andrews must be thinking about me, really struggled through that fluff piece on Leake. #ut #cws about 4 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar Mike Leake’s stuff definitely looks better here in the top of the 2nd. #UT is going to need to work count and get into bullpen tonight. #cws about 4 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar Not a good at bat for Kevin Keyes. Didn’t come close to several curveballs, including last one several feet in front of homeplate. #ut #cws about 4 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar And after all that, Ruffin gets the swinging K for out number 2 and Rupp nails ASU steal attempt at 2nd base to end bottom of 1st. #ut #cws about 4 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar With all the pickoffs and the foul balls and full count, this has been very long at bat. #ut #cws about 4 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar Strikeout and double play grounder from Moldenhauer quickly end a promising start for #UT. Think that was big missed opportunity. #cws about 4 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar #UT needs to take advantage and score before Leake settles in. Big setback if they can’t put one on the board after getting 1st 2 on. #cws about 4 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar Opening batter of the game Michael Torres puts one right inside 1B line to start game with double for #UT. Great start. #cws about 4 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar RT @Dustin_McComas: Sean McDonough sounds like shit, and Orel just called Ruffin a lefty. Nice start for ESPN. about 4 hours ago

  • 40acressports's avatar #UT baseball about to get underway against Ariz St. Glad to have the very hoarse Sean McDonough but dreading another night of Hershiser #cws about 4 hours ago
