OMAHA–Play resumed at 8:05 after a one-hour, 27-minute weather delay, and Jared Bradford picked up where he left off, getting two quick outs on a ground ball and a liner to center field to end the UNC third.
As Steve Pivovar of the Omaha World-Herald points out, we’ve now played 27 minutes of baseball in 26 hours. To think, we could have had this game in the books hours ago if the powers-that-be had actually looked at the forecast when deciding whether to play at 1 p.m. today or 6 p.m. The weather was picture perfect all day until about 6:30 this evening.
As expected, Colin Bates has taken over for Matt Harvey. He hasn’t pitched well down the stretch, but maybe the extra rest he’s gotten in the postseason will have done him some good. Harvey should be able to come back as needed this weekend, should UNC survive tonight.
