BC blows out UM 10-1

DURHAM, N.C. -- Here's today's live blog from the University of Miami's final game at The ACC Tournament against Boston College Friday at Durham Bulls Athletic Park.

> UM starter Iden Nazario didn't get to stick around very long for the Canes. He's out after just 1 2/3 innings. He gave up four earned on three hits with three walks and three strikeouts. David Gutierrez replaced him.

> Another great start for the Canes on offense. The first six hitters get retired in order a day after they were able to get just one hit off FSU starter Brian Busch through five innings and two days after Georgia Tech pitcher Deck McGuire no-hit UM for 5 1/3 innings. The Canes enter today's game hitting a tournament worst .206 (13 for 63 in the series).

> At least today's stadium sound guy is keeping this entertaining. He's playing TV show tunes and has already thrown out the tunes from Night Court, Melrose Place, Dallas, Everybody Loves Raymond and The Jefferson's.

> If there's one thing UM might have gotten out of this tournament its having David Gutierrez recapture some of his confidence. He picked up the win against Georgia Tech Wednesday with three solid innings of relief. He's done a good job again so far today. That could loom large in the regionals next week. I'll have to ask Morris if he might consider moving Gutierrez back into the rotation.

> Ted Blackman picks up UM's first hit with a one-out single to center in the third. UM can't do anything with it. By the way, I never realized how dumb the lyrics to the Who's The Boss intro really was until now.

> By the way, being Cuban-American I had a hearty laugh at this internet commercial filmed here in North Carolina. I found it appropriate to share. By the way, the guys who filmed this commercial are the same ones who created the Red House commercial Dan LeBatard was playing last week on his show on 790 The Ticket.

> Another 1-2-3 inning for David Gutierrez in the fourth.

> Canes blow another golden opportunity to get on the board with a run. With runners on first and third, Harold Martinez can't come through with the clutch hit. Instead, he swings and misses at strike three. BC starter Pat Dean has looked like Randy Johnson today. Dean is BC's No. 3 starter. He came in with a 5-4 record and 3.54 ERA.

> It's only fitting we'd hear the sappy theme from Hill Street Blues as UM finds itself in a nasty situation here in the fifth with the bases loaded and nobody out. John Housey replaced Gutierrez, gave up a hit and walked three -- including BC's fifth run -- before leaving. Sam Robinson will now try to save the Canes' behind.

> Maybe Jim Morris can bring in Jacory Harris next. Canes trail 7-0 here in the fifth and could use one of those Harris touchdown passes to Laron Byrd or Aldarius Johnson to get back in the game. Speaking of the football Canes, did you see Bruce Feldman's interview with Randy Shannon earlier this week?

> Another first and third situation produces zilch for the Canes when Ryan Jackson grounds out weakly to the mound to end the fifth.

> Looks like Morris has thrown in the towel. He's made a few defensive substitutions here in the seventh to give some of his bench players some work. I'm throwing in the towel too.

> Scott Lawson saves UM the embarrassment of being mercy-ruled when he singled home Dave DiNatale, who started the inning with a double, with two outs in the bottom of the seventh.

BOO-BOO

i got my rose bowl 01 rally cap on. come on canes. Seems like this year has been the same for us in every sport, but we'll come back and get em. and next year we'll be good in all the sports.

These kids don't know how to win and stay consistent yet. Unfortunately, a leader comes up, he turns pro. There is no consitency. I am sick of seing this team win a lot throughout the year and then fold at the end. FOLD.

I knew "bigdog" was a Siemenhole. See his post on the other article! Funny- now they are coming out of the woodwork. It's ok. We are used to it Noles fans. You- GAtors and Noles are twins separated at birth. You think alike, You sound alike, you live in simlar trailors, you both hate on the U, U are both jealous of the U. But of all peopl, I would expect the noles to be humble, polite and quiet, b/c the NCAA is aboutto strip your dumb--sses of 14 wins from 2006 and 2007, plus, you've never wona a College WS, and now the gators are ahead of you in NCs!!!!

Bobby Bowden: shut up you old demented hound dog.

Manny,

If BankUnited goes bankrupt or is sold, as being reported, what's the new name of the UM Basketball Stadium? Back to convocation center?

http://blogs.trb.com/sports/custom/business/blog/2009/05/bankunited_center_business_as.html
The bank – the largest headquartered in Florida – signed a 10-year agreement to put its name on the Coral Gables arena in November 2005. So the bank has a contract and a bank spokeswoman said Friday that it’s “business as usual.”
It’s possible the contract will be honored and the name will remain, particularly since the bank is to continue being called BankUnited.

Jim Morris has a young team, pitching depth will be better next season! Miami fans miss thst line-up from last year that could score runs in bunches! This team did lay down today which makes all cane fans sick! hEY AT LEAST they won acc tile last year, football has not been close!

Always next season with U Cane fans ... Like Football, like Basketball, like Baseball ... U lay down and still think it will be better next year.

To the blogger above (which I suspect is kehoen)-

UF did nothing. Nothing. from 1996-2006. Nothing from 1872 to 1996. Now U going to tell me UF fans have never said...maybe next year?

This is a young team, butthey laid an egg and quit on Morris. Morris has to take some responsibility with this pathetic performance, after a great performance against GT. Otherwise there is noway they are making it out of regionals!

what did Gaytr baseball do? Hmmm. Swept by Canes in Trailerville earlier this year. No need for next year. We pounded them this year.

Wasn't that about the same time that all U Canes were popping off how Bryce Brown was going to be the next "Edge" and great U runningback ???

Well, it's now late in the season and Tourney time... Ur Third major Sports team in a row this year that is laying an egg once again when it counts. Funny thing is, U Canes seem to be getting used to this and are accepting it quite well as the norm.

what did Gaytr baseball do? Hmmm

They WON their Division and will be hosting a Regional by virtue of what the accomplished over an ENTIRE season. Can U comprehend ?

Well U can always bring in a ton of freshman next year in football, basketball and baseball and keep up Ur Excuse mantra of " We are young, we'll be better next year."

It is what U have become, "Excuse U."

Kudos to U 4evr ... The first step to resolving a problem is to identify it... U might want to save Ur quote for next November and just insert Shannon and New Years Day Bowl appearance.

Congrats, U have now been reduced to a women's tennis school...
