Saturday Game Thread: at The Kentucky Blue Balls

Dores take Game One 10-0 and make a little history in the process.

Despite the Kentucky announcers mentioning it eleventy billion times, both McBain and Little were able to ward off the jinx and pitch a combined no-hitter against The Kentucky Blue Balls. All this with McBain not exactly having his A level stuff.

Final lines for the pitchers on the Vanderbilt combined no hitter:

Chris “McBain” McElvain (W, 5-2)

7 IP 0 R 0 H 3 B 9 K on 104 pitches (66 strikes)

Christian “The Answer” Little

2 IP 0 R 0 H 1 B 4 K on 27 pitches (18 strikes)

On the flip side, the Blue Ball pitchers couldn’t find the plate, yielding 12 H and 12 BB to the Diamond Dore attack. Beyond that, they emptied their pen—burning through 6 pitchers on the night.

Still, there are two more games in the series, and two excellent chances to build our resume to host a Regional. We’re now 27-10 (8-8 SEC). Let’s wrap up the series with some brunch time baseball.
