the Etta Express is laying the wood to Thomas More early on; looks like the offense is rolling at the right time the last few days.  they lead 9-0 in the 2nd....if things hold up, tomorrow's winner's bracket final with Manchester could be a slugfest, which is always fun!!

Chris Winpigler has 5 RBIs in the first 3 innings. He wasn't even a starter until about 15 games ago...such is life as Alex Toth's backup lol.

EDIT TO ADD: another RBI. 6 in 5 innings now. 12-0. Mulvey still pitching for Marietta...believe he's faced one above the minimum and I'd doubt if he's thrown 40 pitches through 4.

Kudos to the seeding committee.  The top two seeds are the two undefeated teams, the first two teams going home are the bottom two seeds, and all the rest are 1-1.  Pretty rare to see a regional go so much to form.

Wooster finally puts up a crooked number in an inning for the first time since the 1st inning of their 1st game with TMC!  The Scots have put 3 across in the bottom of the 7th to break up a 2-2 tie with W&J and now lead 5-2 with 6 outs to play! 

And the errors continue to not only mount for Wooster but continue to be costly?!   :(  An error on what would have been an inning ending out allows W&J to load the bases and the next batter clears them for a game tying 3-run double in which all 3 runs were unearned...  :-\  And then the Presidents tack on another for good measure so now Wooster trails again 6-5.

That's now 9 errors in less than 3 games complete.  They had only committed 3 or more errors in three games all season long and this is now the 2nd game out of their 3 played so far in this regional that the Scots have committed 4 errors.  Bad time to leave their gloves at home...   ???

Come on someone win this...I got stuff to do before the Marietta game but want to see the end of this one! :)

Liller has been everywhere in this tournament for W&J.

That's how I felt when OWU played Wooster. Not sure it would have made a difference, but OWU had 2, 6 and 3 errors respectively in the three games they played Wooster. It did not help that we were walking guys either.

TM ousts IWU, 10-6.  Mart Hart of the Titans was cruising along with a shutout and 3-0 lead through 5, but then the roof caved in.  Trailing 10-4 with 2 out in the bottom of the ninth, IWU did not go gently: the game ended with the bases loaded and the tying run at bat!

Manchester up 7-5, 2 in scoring position for Marietta in the 6th and Bryce Murphy coming in to replace Padgett on the mound.

Murphy threw 4 innings yesterday but was probably only around 50 pitches. He'll need to go almost as far today to secure a big win for the Spartans.

Well, well, well....  those three wins should help Manchester's SOS.

Murphy, Niemann, and Marchant are All-Americans.

Gotta a really good team there.

Well, whatever went wrong with Marietta in the OAC tournament...safe to say it has been addressed and corrected.

9-0 after 2, just beating the ball all over the yard after jumping on a pretty good pitcher from Behrend last night.

What was wrong with them in the OAC Tournament was Otterbein.

I don't think it was Otterbein as much as Marietta.

Otterbein's not as good as anyone in this regional.

Like Case Western in the regular season, Manchester is just a good team that was better today. They've been here before and they're experienced as a group.

I actually thought the committee was right to make them the 1 seed with how Marietta finished. They earned it and today they showed why they deserved it.

Lot of baseball yet to be played.

that's the great thing about baseball...they had a great season against crappy competition (cantbe argued), were awarded with the #1 seed in the regional, and PROVED up to this point they deserved it. now they just need to play up to their seed and finish it to advance.

we'll see how tomorrow goes, but regardless, they have shown they have a very solid line-up and decent enough starting pitching, and a great closer, to be in the hunt for a national title.

enjoy it, for most schools the opportunity doesn't come along very often.

The opportunity came along last year and Manchester ran out of pitching and was a deer in headlights against the all mighty Etta Express.  They should at least be able to out slug anyone this year if that's the case again.  Now that the mental block of playing Marietta is out of the way, they should be in a better state of mind going into tomorrow.
 
Don't be surprised if we see Murphy again at some point.  His arm apparently doesn't get fatigued, ever.

38-5-1(2-0 in the OAC) ain't bad.... even against the worst teams in the country.

I'm sure Murphy will throw again tomorrow...but I'd still rather see him with 100 or whatever pitches on him in the last 2 days than not.
