CWS – Florida State vs. Stony Brook

FSU - C – Stephen McGee – 2012:    .237, 0-HR, 40-RBI, 30-K, 58-BB… drew a walk and scored…

SB – 1B – Kevin Courtney – 2012:  .292, 4-HR, 38-RBI, 25-BB… once again, Courtney’s defense at first looks very good… comes in .320 in post season… struck out looking on a nasty inside curve… great gap double in the 5th, followed by poor running on a single and an errand throw where he should have scored…

SB – SP – Brandon McNitt – 2012: 8-3, 2.50, 100.2-IP, 61-K... Only 5-9… fastball sits in the 84-90 range…  known for pounding the zone… + pitch is the sinker and, if it’s on, there will be bunches of ground balls… 78-slider to end the 2nd… FSU James Ramsey owned him early… got a little rattled in the 3rd after a 2-run error that should have been the 3rd out…  put a high fastball right down the high pipe for a 3-run HR by Justin Gonzalez (0-7). Final line 3.2 IP, 6 H, 9 R 4 ER, 3 BB, 2 K.

SB – RP – Joshua Mason – 2012:  3-1, 3.47 ,36.1-IP, 31-K (.300)… got Ramsey to hit into a double-play to get out of the 6th inning (2-P inning)…

Wonder if Kent State is watching this and taking notes ... felt like both Cinderellas belonged here, but neither has played like it yet

RHP Jordan Sheffield (Tullahoma, TN) little guy with lightning quick arm. 90-93 in 1st with explosive late life

Wareham Gatemen 6, Brewster Whitecaps 4 - Clay Champman (Florida Southern) got the win as the Wareham Gatemen beat the Brewster Whitecaps 6-4 at Spillane Field. Kyle Schwarber (Indiana University) gave the Gatemen an initial lead with an RBI double in the first inning followed by an RBI double by Daniel Palka (Georgia Tech) to increase the lead to 2-0 and the Gatemen never lost the advantage. http://www.collegebaseballdaily.com/2012/06/15/cape-cod-baseball-league-recap-for-june-15th/

Zack Collins is a 6-foot-2, 205-pound catcher and general utility player who swings from the left side of the plate and throws right-handed. At the 16u National Championship, he almost single-handedly led the South Florida Elite Squad 16u Black to the tournament championship. After a loss in the pool-play opener, Collins helped SFES 16u Black to 10 straight wins, including four straight on the final day of the tournament. He was 18-for-29 (.621) with seven doubles, two home runs and 16 RBI for the tournament and an even more incredible 13-for-17 (.765) with all seven of his doubles and both home runs coming in the five playoff games. He was named the tournament MVP.
