Saturday Game Thread: vs. The Okie Pokes in the College Baseball Showdown

We got boat raced by the Horny Toads. Puke, rally, and beat an orange team today.

Lifo fifo at high noon.

Game Two vs. The Okie State Okie Pokes

‘22 Record: 42-22 (15-9 Big XII).

The Okie Pokes were the #1 seed in the Stillwater Regional, but were bounced by the Arky Woo Pig Sooies 7-3 after being them 14-10 in extras the night before.

This year, they’re 1-0 after beating fellow conference foe Missourah (spits).

Player to Watch: #4 So. OF Zach “Ehrmagehrd” Ehrhard (.332/.429/.409 with 8 2B, 0 3B, 3 HR, and 31 RBI). Be glad that Jake “Homer Thompson of Terror Lake” Thompson is no longer a Pistol Pete, though also watch out for the power stroke of Jr. Nolan “Healthy Fast Food Menu Item” McLean, who hit a team high 19 dingers in ‘22.

Anchor of Gold Tiger Beat Hottest Pitcher: #27 Jr. RHP Brian “High School Hero” Hendry (2-5, 5.00 ERA with the St. John’s Red Storm in ‘21). Now why did I choose a transfer reliever who was out with an injury for the entirety of 2022 as the Anchor of Gold Tiger Beat Hottest Pitcher? Because he is a proud graduate of the same high school as yours truly. SHAWNEE HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL RULES!!! BEAT THOSE LENAPE LOSERS!!!
