Second verse, same as the first.
One day after a 12-2 8th inning run-rule drubbing of the Secession Sandinistas of Ole Miss, the Diamond Dores did it again, with an 8-0 shutout behind a complete game 11K effort by Hunter “Mr. Manager” Owen. With those 11K, and inducing many pop flies, Owen made sure that Vanderbilt’s defense just needed to be good—not otherworldly like Thursday night—and the offense would only need to scratch one through.
Thanks, but no thanks, said the Vanderbats, as both RJs went deep—Stone Cold RJ Austin hit a 3 run bomb and Ogre tanked a solo shot—Jack Bulger went 2-4 with a 2B and 2 RBI, and Enrique looked like the Shockwave of old with a 3-5 night including a 2B down the LF line.
Let me kick it over to Chet Harper for the rest of the highlights:
Chet: But then, Olden Polynice says, “I’m not gonna pay a lot for this muffler!” But then Karl Malone says, “Sweet Sassy Molassey! You are gonna pay a lot! And the cost is gonna be prohibitive!” Jazz wins, 99-93! Stu-pot!
Let’s look at some clips from the game:
