GW on SC; FIU Softball Advances to Final

PORT ST. LUCIE -- Congratulations to Garrett Wittels on having the second longest NCAA all-time hitting streak with a hit in today's game against the Hooters.

Gw GW (left, thanks Alex J. Hernandez photo) is at 48 right now and passed Phil Stephenson of Wichita State, whoSc hit in 47 consecutive games in 1981.

You can catch ESPN News for GW's interview that aired on Saturday's 6 p.m. Sportscenter.

In Friday's SC, GW's hit in his 47th straight game was the No. 10 Top 10 Play.

Let's see what the worldwide leader thinks of No. 48 in tonight's Top Plays.

Followed the action in the last 2 games in Boca Raton from up here in Port St. Lucie as I was sent to the state high school baseball championships where there is an FIU presence here both on the field and in the stands scouting.

David Vazquez, FIU signee and FIU pitcher Andre Vazquez's brother, just won a state championship. Vazquez is the cleanup hitter for McCarthy High and he hit .409 with 4 HR this season.

FIU also got a verbal commit from Deltona Trinity Christian shortstop Chino Vega, who hit .494 this season with 5 HR.


FIU softball won 2 games today in Gainesville defeating Bethune Cookman 2-0 in 10 innings and Central Florida 7-0 to advance to Sunday's regional final against Florida.

Kasey Barrett (right, thanks AJH photo) threw 10 shutout innings against the Wildcats and Jennifer Gniadek tossed the shutout against the Knights.

Ashley McClain went 4 for 9 in the two games and Jenny Welch hit a two-run HR against UCF.

The Panthers will need to beat the Gators twice on Sunday to advance in the NCAA Tournament. The first game is at 1 p.m.
