Here's a question, has anyone ever recorded TWO earned wins in one day before as a pitcher?
I don't think Gausman will do it today as he's maxing out his pitch count here, but talk about an EPIC way to end your career in Alex Box in his very last day of playing here before going on to the pro's as the highest drafted player ever.
If I'm Gausman, I would refuse to be taken out of this game right now if I felt my arm could take it. haha He's still throwing great stuff and the ONLY reason SB has three runs right now is because of the rain earlier that appears to have cleared up by now. Keep him in coach if you can safely! This is epic!

If not for miracles yesterday, LSU would be looking at being swept at their own regional right now. I give credit to SB pitchers for largely keeping the ball down and inducing ground outs. But the LSU offense is not very good right now.
Hope we wear the gold jerseys tomorrow. Seems we always have a little more magic in them.
Ironically, I think a rain delay would have helped LSU today. If their starter would have had to go a stretch without pitching, he probably doesn't finish.
Oh well. Time to go earn it tomorrow!
You might be right. The rain seemed to really hit Gausman pretty good at the beginning of the game and favored SB in game 2.
Stony Brook's ace pitcher is pure BEAST MODE. He's pitched three games this week and really high pitch counts with a complete game today giving up only one run. That's unbelievable!
Gausman did unbelievable today under the circumstances, but the rain and our pitiful batting lineup was just too much for anyone to overcome. Sorry his last game in Alex Box had to end like that, but he played really well at least!
SB's coach said he has no idea who will start tomorrow other than a rightie. That's probably not true, but does seem to indicate to me that he doesn't have a true third pitcher to throw at LSU. However Eades is CLEARLY the guy for LSU here, so I feel better about tomorrow's chances now that I've heard that. I'm guessing their pitching staff isn't anywhere near as deep as LSU's. But with an 80% chance of rain tomorrow, it's anybody's guess what will actually happen. All I know is that I hope we never have to see that SB ace pitcher again. Dude is beast mode.
