We're Not in Kansas Anymore!

FAU 6 K- State 2. Auntie Em, Auntie Em... There's no place like home...especially when someone pitches like James Callahan did tonight. Our plan was to use a few different guys throughout the game, but after Will Mann's solid three innings, we went to James because of the three lefties stacked together in the K- State batting order. They also had a switch hitter whom we preferred to see bat right handed. So James enters and goes through the Kansas State boys like a tornado. He threw only thirty seven pitches during his five innings! James went to two balls only once. Not one batter reached base the entire time.

For years, I have always called James "the nicest guy on the team". Now in his fifth year, he is the best left-handed reliever we have. You can't ask for a better kid to have this sort of success. James deserves all that he gets this year. He has worked hard and really made himself better.

We got a big home run from Rusty Brown to take a 3-2 lead and then scratched out a few others. Tim Mascia was 2-2. I think he's hitting .500. Derek Hutton did a great job getting a suicide squeeze bunt down on a pitch at his face. Coxie played a great third base with three highlight plays. All in all a good night that started with a downpour and was delayed one hour and twenty minutes, plus 22 bags of Turface. Who cares? We won. There's no place like home. KC
