Ninth Inning Grand Slam Lifts Heels

New, comments

CWS: UNC 7 LSU 3

Wow were they ever due and Tim Federowicz delivered with a tie breaking grand slam with two outs in the ninth. LSU decided to intentionally walk Tim Fedroff and face Federowicz. The latter made the Tigers pay and registered the 1st grand slam at the CWS since 2001.

The question now is whether the pitching rotation is too hosed up to beat Fresno State twice. Alex White was brought in to pitch in the eighth making it impossible for him to start against FSU on Saturday. Of course it is all about surviving at this point and perhaps the grand slam was the match to the fuse igniting a Tar Heel offensive explosion going forward.

Heels face the Bulldogs Saturday night at 7 PM.
