Tarred Feathers

The Louisville Cardinals are done for the year. It's sad to see them going, but it just keeps my pick alive. Carolina scored their runs on an error and a few scattered hits, but the bats of the Cards went silent into the night. The Tar Heels pitching came to life after being shelled in the first loss. I think that may be the reason they played loose. Last year they left Omaha as losers. They won the first of the 3 game Championship Series, before Oregon State turned on the light switch and took home the trophy. This was Louisville's first trip to Rosenblatt, and I'm sure not their last.
After scoring 99 runs in 10 game this post season, they only plated 1 this afternoon. They woke some people up this year in the CWS by sending the Bulldogs home and playing today with all they had. This my friends is nothing to sneeze at.

Now the tricky part. North Carolina has to beat those Owls of Rice twice, before losing once. This is going to be a rematch of the blowout earlier this week. Rice will be ready, and they are rested. Coming off the win today may carry the first game to the Tar Heels in the next round; however, the Owls have been ranked in the Top 5 just about all year. Should be a dandy. Heels playing to stay alive and the Owls looking to punch their ticket to the SHIP.
