OMAHA—Smoke is billowing across the outfield here at Rosenblatt Stadium, a product of some grill blazing behind the left-field bleachers. Whatever’s cooking out there, it can’t be as good as what’s cooking on the field. Texas and Arizona State are locked in a 2-2 tie after five innings of a tight, crisp ballgame. ASU righty Mike Leake, working on two days’ rest, has been better than he was Tuesday against Texas, striking out six and working around seven hits to hold the Longhorns to two runs so far. He’s approaching the 80-pitch mark, and there was action in the ASU pen last inning, so I can’t imagine Leake will be in the game much longer.
Texas starter Cole Green has been solid yet again, using that devastating slider of his to rack up six strikeouts of his own. Green has already topped 100 pitches, but he’s considerably more rested than Leake. Still, I see action in the Texas pen as well, and I get the feeling Green’s outing is close to finished, too.
