Aftermath of UM baseball's Game 2 win

It's Sarah Rothschild again from Mark Light Field. I got back a few minutes ago from the Game 2 postgame press conference. (I'll be live blogging again Sunday night from the game here).

First, an update for all of you Canes fans wanting to purchase tickets to Sunday's winner-take-all Game 3 at the Light. You can get tickets now at hurricanesports.com, the All Canes sporting goods store on 5831 Ponce de Leon Blvd. beginning at noon and if any remain will be on sale at 5 p.m. at the stadium. (Tickets did not go on sale until after the game). The 7 p.m. game will be televised on ESPN2.

*The Hurricanes seemed relieved and happy in their postgame news conference, and said they didn't really feel like they had the game won until the 9th inning.

*Catcher Yasmani Grandal and first baseman Yonder Alonso, who each had three-run home runs, said the team didn't panic after facing a 4-0 deficit in the first inning. Alonso, a junior, talked about how all good teams have to be able to come back from deficits and that the Canes showed they weren't going to quit throughout the game.

*UM's 14-10 victory snapped Arizona's six-game winning streak

*Winning pitcher: David Gutierrez, younger brother of junior and UM closer Carlos Gutierrez (who was drafted in the first round of the MLB draft by the Minnesota Twins Thursday). David Gutierrez pitched four innings in relief, giving up four hits, three runs and threw 68 pitches. Arizona reliever Mike Colla took the loss.   

*Rightfielder Dennis Raben's six walks Saturday tied a NCAA record set by Oklahoma State's May 29, 1999.

1st? Really?


I almost had a heart attack after I check the scores at 0 - 4, then 4 - 4, then 4 - 7 --- then 7 - 7. I ready to pack it in when coming back from a very weird Indiana Jones movie to find out they won. This team has its destiny -- to win it all!

Goooooooo Caaaaaanes!!!

So many things happened in this game. Our catcher being Mr Clutch? Why not comment on that? Like Denatale last week, a different guy stepped up. What about Jim Morris patience with the younger Guiterrez when some coaches would have yanked him early. Why not focus on Erickson, after the initial disaster, getting us to the fourth inning. There were alot of heroes today, but this article that says tickets can be purchased at so and so doesn't capture the great win, IMHO.

everytime I miss a game the Canes win. I'm just going to stop watching!

What a great game, heartattack city but great, GO CANES bring us to Omaha tonight!

"He's looking to sign two or three from the area. When talking about Miami-Dade and Broward, Meyer always likes to stress "quality" over "quantity" -- an indirect reference, of course, to Shannon cleaning house with the most 2 Star Recruits in the nation.

You can't spell canes without sounding it out in a chant.
