    I've always undervalued speed. In this game he effectively turned 3 singles and 2 walks into 3 doubles and a triple.
    Morrill continues to hunt. For the 2nd time in 11 games, he gets the 4+ steal achievement. He now has 79 steals in 67 games and for his career is at the 160 per 160 threshold, which is ludicrous.

    Whereas Whitney Warren's speed betrayed him (only relatively) in his JR and SR years (176, 168, 143, 120 for 602), Morrill is actually getting faster.

    God wanted to rest on the 7th day, but upon the sudden and worrisome realization that His work was incomplete, lacked perfection, He stood up, created Sung Mayo from all the finest and rarest resources, then He sat back down, pleased with His creation.

    In a spell of mismanagement, LR David Smith ended up with a start against Stanford after moving some starters into the wrong place. Coming into the game, Smith had never lasted longer than an inning and had recorded more than a single out just twice in his 9 appearances. His 3 1/3 innings allowing 12 runs had his ERA at 32.40.

    Yet somehow, Smith managed to throw 6 innings allowing just two runs in a 7-2 victory. He managed zero strikeouts and John Davis worked overtime at 2B to make him look good. The performance helped Smith's ERA plummet to a still not very respectable 13.50.

    Solomon Tipton, who was supposed to start the game, started the next game and allowed 3 ER in 6 innings, clearly giving up his role as the ace to Smith for the foreseeable future.

    Don't look now but the SE is turning into a serious race. 3 teams within 1.5 games of 1st, Florida just 4 games back and UNC a manageable 6 games back. Whenever whoever decides to knock FSU out of our wrongful place atop the division, just be gentle lol.

    Texas won 6-3, but Morrill got his 3rd 4+ steals achievement of the season.

    Morrill could only steal two against our starting catcher! You're only 11 for 11 through 2 games on the basepaths so it's going well.
