Newman got blasted right out of the park


Pitcher No. 3 was done. 1/3 innings pitched, no hits, one earned run, one strikeout, and three batters faced.

Peterson fell apart in a hell of a hurry. He walked two batters to start, then crossed a run on a sac grounder. Still, he accounted for the first two runs of the inning, but that couldn’t keep him in the game. Next up: Hunter Newman. Poor, poor Hunter Newman.

Pitcher No. 4 was done. 2/3 innings pitched, no hits, two earned runs, no strikeouts, and two batters faced.

Newman is a big-time arm. He owns a 2.73 ERA for the season and can routinely throw heat in the high 80s and low 90s. This game should have done better by him.

As it turned out, though, Newman got blasted right out of the park, inheriting two runners from Peterson then walking Larnach on four straight pitches to load the bases

No. 7 Louisville and Texas A&M kicked off the early session on Sunday, and the Cardinals wasted little time in getting up on the Aggies in the second. Thanks to a flurry of five singles in the bottom of the frame, Louisville plated five runs there and things looked to be getting out of hand for A&M.

But the Aggies found an answer in the form of a fourth inning two spot, then a sixth inning dash for two runs that ended lefty Brendan McKay’s outing. That brought on bridge man Sam Bordner, who managed to stop the bleeding and get out of the jam. Bordner in fact pitched out the rest of the game, surrendering no more runs in the process.

Cason Sherrod took the hill for A&M in the bottom of the Cheap Dolphins Jerseys sixth, but Cheap Authentic Jerseys he must not have seen the Aggies’ offensive fireworks, because he got himself into a bases-loaded jam with just one out. Then, a throw-and-catch blunder at second on a chopper to the right gap pulled him off the bag so that he failed to complete the tag. That moved everyone forward one base and crossed Louisville’s sixth run of the day.
