Blacksburg Regional

Game 1 is already done - so much for the Zags pitching staff who got worked, and Columbia moves on by a score of 8-2.

Hokies and Weight State get at it at 7pm.

Sorry team - was just now able to tune in and now Wright is on the board. Turning the game off...

An hour long 5th inning and a good bottom inning to answer wright state. The announcer for this game is alot of fun and you can't ell theyre enjoying it. Not typical accn oddities

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

Um, VT pitching needs to tighten up.......

5 point lead is cursed

Yeah, don't feel great about advancing from the regional if we don't fix our pitching, it's been pretty bad for about a month now....

WHY do Virginia Tech sports teams insist on making life so much harder than it has to be? πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

Question (cause I'm ignorant of this): What is the pitching count/inning limits for ncaa division 1 in this tournament?

Pain is Temporary, Chicks Dig Scars
Glory is Forever, Let's Go Hokies!!

No limits on pitches/innings. Honor/shame system only.

I've watched two VT baseball games in my life. The UNC game last week where we got crushed and this one. Hokie baseball is stressful.

Ok not as much anymore

Are these the announcers for the entire Regional?

I would assume so. I thought they were perfectly fine.

I don't watch enough collegiate baseball but I'm guessing pitching just simply isn't as good at this level as the pros so I'm guess closers aren't really a common thing? That was a shaky of a game as you can have scoring 15 runs. Should coach reduce pitching changes I feel like he pulls guys really quickly sometimes.

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

And how many active pitchers are on the roster? Jeez that was a lot for both teams.

Usually about half of the roster is pitchers!

Good to know! I was sweating every time we brought in a new pitcher, thinking "this has gotta be one of the last ones they have."

I don't watch a lot of collegiate baseball either, but I noticed two things similar to you:
(1) the pitchers have very small repertoire and pitch a lot of fastballs with average movement
(2) there are about 1-2 mental mistakes each inning; whether it's hitting the cutoff man, covering a bag, chasing down a baserunner, etc. -- it's a lot; and while I expected less talent than watching MLB, I didn't expect so many mistakes that are easily correctable with better decision making -- I will say the Hokies did play better in the field than Wright State, but definitely made some mistakes that frustrate the hell out of me

πŸ¦ƒ πŸ¦ƒ πŸ¦ƒ

So the game is on ESPN + tonight. Anyone have a way to stream online?

Not being snarky but the answer to that is subscribe to ESPN+

"Not being snarky" is code for "I'm gonna be snarky anyways and the next thing I say will not be helpful at all." There are usually streaming threads for basketball and football on Reddit but can't find any for baseball. I'm new to college baseball so looking for some help

I bought the ESPN?+ app for SB last weekend. I still needed an Xfinity ID to log on. I watched jack shit.

Even when you get skunked; fishing never lets you down. 🎣

Most of the games for softball last weekend were on TV, so they would have been on the ESPN app, but not part of ESPN+, because you'd need the TV log in. This game is just ESPN+, so no TV log in needed.

Go here they have a live stream. Columbia U BB.

I'm just getting the ESPN+ login. Guess I'll have to do the trial if they have one

Pretty sure I get it for "free" through Verizon for our family cell service plan. Might be worth checking out your subscriptions and see if any of them give you access.

stick it in, stick it in, stick it in!

I noticed the catcher and at least one of the other fielders for the softball team in attendance at the game.

Good to see Hokies supporting other Hokies

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

Do we have the pitching to make any noise?

Even when you get skunked; fishing never lets you down. 🎣

We have the offense to carry us. My concern is the pitching - they don't need to be perfect but they HAVE to minimize the bad innings. Too many walks recently have created big innings for the other teams. If we can pitch to contact more and keep it in the park then I like our chances of a deep run.

uva @ ECU in Greensville at 4pm gets the ACCN broadcast?!! They prefer not to showcase a ranked acc host school? What a crock.

"Two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I am not yet completely sure about the universe.” -Einstein

Edit: probably has more to do with the opponents. UVA/ECU has more of a draw than a VT/Columbia matchup.

Why exactly are we, the top seed in the region, the away team tonight???

Same as the softball regional, we will be home/away/home for the first three games i think. Even though we are hosting we are not the defacto home team every game. A bit confusing but I think the intent is to make it more fair for all the teams

VB born, class of '14

Boo this. Wtf is the point of earning a top seed if you don't get the spoils of what a top seed should get.

No offense, but this has been the format for baseball and softball for a good while now. Are you just now realizing this?

In the super regional stage, for baseball if a third game is required, the home team is determined by a coin flip.

The advantage you earn by being a top seed is by not having to travel and playing in your home park with your fans. The results since 1999 when the tournament went to 64 teams generally favors the host teams.

I am actually. Seems like something that needs to be adjusted.

It's basically the same in professional sports. Look at any sport that plays elimination series - baseball, basketball, hockey. The higher seed doesn't permanently play at home, but they are given home field advantage so they are home in potentially decisive games in the series.

Gonzaga advances and eliminates Wright, but their pitching got shelled once again in their 11-9 victory. Whatever it is, this isn't the same pitching staff that was heralded coming into this and now they are taxed going in to tomorrow's elimination game.

Also - GT and Wake live to see another game, and Liberty is ousted. You hate to see it.

Bret Boretti thinks Pat Nardouchie is one fantastic coach; if not, the best of all time.

Even when you get skunked; fishing never lets you down. 🎣

Let's go!!!

I bet the guys spinning their arms behind home plate have visited him several times already.

Can anyone give and update? Cant watch tonight cause im travelling....

I can't watch either but ESPN does have live scoring. Top of 4th, huge inning for the Hokies. We've scored 9 this inning and have 1 out. 10-2 Hokies

Edit: 13-2, still 1 out, runners on 1st and 2nd. Man I wish this was on TV

Currently 12-2 Tech in the top of the 4th now, with VT still batting.

Also, the slow-mo replay of Demartini doing what I assume was a big dick celebration, and the PBP asking the color guy, "What to you call that", was just *chef's kiss*.

LOL inside the park HR on a routine fly ball to left field that got lost in the lights, not sure I have ever seen that before. This game is just bonkers.

Three lost balls in the stadium lights. How? This is nuts

There is a mercy rule in college baseball, but it rarely happens as the head coaches have to mutually agree to the outcome.

Yup.

The regional is a four team double elimination tournament

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

Yes. The Hokies will play whoever wins the Gonzaga/Columbia game tomorrow.

We have to win 1, the other team will have to beat us twice.

Random interviews with whomever on the team is near the headset on the air is fun

I'm still figuring this out.

I turned a baseball game on and a football score broke out.

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

I'm glad we went for 2 before getting the safety.

We put the K in Kwality

This is absurd, please bring home the natty!!

Umm. I checked in late to this one, but I imagine the broadcast sounded something like "Touchdown Tech!" for most of the game.

Mostly just 2 in the fourth frame with a fairly constant trickle besides that

I'm still figuring this out.

More runs last night than points scored in 6 football games last season...

So you're saying we should give our football team bats? I think that will lead to unnecessary roughness calls.

For those not already tracking - 2nd elimination game today @1pm between Gonzaga and Columbia (game is on ESPN+). Hokies play the winner tonight @7pm (dont know yet which network will have the coverage).

Every other elimination game today is being carried by ESPN+ with the following exceptions:
- Louisville vs Oregon (ACCN)
- Georgia vs UNC (ESPNU)
- Central Michigan vs Florida (SECN)
- FSU vs UCLA (ESPN 2)

Here it is, 3pm and no one knows where this game will be televised???

I may not be able to watch the game live and would sure like to record the game.

Jeez!

Just gonna assume ESPN+ for now I guess

ESPNU and ACCN have the 7PM timeslot as teams TBA. The 7PM game possibilities are as follows (ACC teams in bold):

  • #1 Tenn v. GT/Campbell (GT currently up 10-4)
  • ND v. #16GA So/Texas Tech (TT currently up 3-1)
  • OU v. #13UF/CMU (currently tied 5/5)
  • #4 VT v. Columbia/Gonzaga (Columbia currently up 14-4)
  • UConn v. #15 Maryland/WF (Maryland currently up 8-5)
  • Ark v. #7 OSU/Missouri St (Mis St currently up 13-9)
  • LSU v. #11 S. Miss/Kennesaw St (Ken. St currently up 2-1)
  • #14Auburn v. FSU/UCLA (FSU currently up 1-0)

I would expect #1 Tenn to get the ESPNU game, but it's possible they're on ACCN if ESPN desires another matchup (but who? Arkansas v OSU maybe). If GT is on ESPNU, that leaves ND, VT, WF and FSU as possibilities on the ACCN, with WF and FSU needing to win their elimination game. My guess is #14Auburn v. FSU and maybe ND v. GA So./TT would be selected over #4 VT v. Columbia.

So, route for UCLA to win and it makes it more likely for VT to be on ACCN, but may be all moot if ACCN goes with ND anyways or if Tenn v. WF isn't picked up on ESPNU.

Update: And what should have been completely expected but I didn't anticipate based on timing: ACCN coverage now begins at 6PM to cover UNC v. VCU, because we don't get enough UNC and the UNC v. UGA game on ESPNU earlier today was not enough. *sigh*

πŸ¦ƒ πŸ¦ƒ πŸ¦ƒ

They're probably waiting to see what the actual matchups will be based on the 1 PM games.

ESPNU, SECN, and ACCN all have college baseball regional games scheduled at 7 PM. ESPN2 has one scheduled for 9 PM, but that's probably the Corvallis region game based on the overall schedule.

SECN is showing Kentucky spring game on my schedule at that 7PM timeslot, but YTTV could have it wrong, or it could be based on regionality (I'm on West coast).

πŸ¦ƒ πŸ¦ƒ πŸ¦ƒ

I'm looking directly at the schedule on the ESPN website. The Kentucky Spring Game is scheduled for 4 PM ET but right now they have the Florida/CMU game running over.

OK, well YTTV is wrong then.

It would not surprise me to see ESPN to use ACCN as proxy to show three SEC matchups at the 7PM timeslot. If FSU loses, I would lol if they show Tenn v. GT on ACCN to get OU/UF on ESPN2 and either Auburn or Arkansas or LSU on SECN.

πŸ¦ƒ πŸ¦ƒ πŸ¦ƒ

So how does this championship game work? Since we haven't lost and it's a double elimination tourney, if we lose tonight is there a second game?

Yep. Whoever wins at 1pm today has to beat us twice.

If a 2nd game is necessary it would be Monday!

Because of the differences in pitching I think it is much harder in baseball than softball to come back and win two in a row.

It's Time to go to Work

Ideal scenario developing in the Gonzaga v. Columbia. Both teams in their bullpen early and pitch counts are high. With the extended BP use yesterday by Columbia, their staff will be tired. If Gonzaga can put up a fight and make a comeback of sorts, Columbia will have to use up more of their staff. The hammering Hokies should be licking their chops.

Update: Gonzaga not putting up much of a fight. Columbia's RP put up 5 1/3 innings of three run (1 ER) ball. Can Columbia put up numbers like that again against VT tonight?

loluva just blew a 6 run lead to coastal Carolina in their elimination game! 6-6 now, top of the 8th.

Their rested staff gave up 15 walks last night. As long as our hitters can stay disciplined and not lose focus this could be fun to watch.

The Sunday night game will be on ESPN+ at 7pm.

May seems to be one of Columbia's best pitchers put of the pen. He pitched 3 innings (40 pitches) of shutout ball on Friday. 1 2/3 innings (31 pitches) thus far tonight, including slamming the door on a bases loaded 1 out in 3rd. It's hard to imagine him going too more than another inning or 2, and the Hokies need to work him as Columbia probably should pitch him until his arm falls off.

Warning: this post occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors)..

From a numbers standpoint I'd go with Oklahoma.

According to the D1 Rankings page, Oklahoma was ranked at the end of the season while Florida was not. However, Florida is the favorite and they are hosting the regional. According the the Massey Rankings, Florida is the 7th best team and Oklahoma 20th. Both teams have top 20 offenses, but Florida's pitching was much better than Oklahoma's.

As much as we dont care for their fans I say bring it on and lets shut them up for a while.

How do they do the two CWS brackets? Is it reseeded, or is it pre-set based on the super-regional?

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

Maybe it's just me, but I thought Tennessee seemed like an awfully cocky bunch in Saturday's game. And quite frankly, they're in the asteroid game for me with ND. Wouldn't mind seeing them taken out, but I'd hate to see ND advance too. At least they'd be a known entity.

Take the shortest route to the ball and arrive in bad humor.

I'm going to be at the beach with my Vol fan in-laws the week of the round robin play. I don't know if I want them to lose to ND so I can lord it over them by watching at the beach house... or if I'd prefer them to get through so we can put them in their place while I'm in the same room watching.
