    Abel Raises Cain with Arkansas

    What a superb College World Series!

    In the final championship game Freshman Oregon pitcher Kevin Abel got a crucial win against the Arkansas Razorbacks. The Bible says Cain killed Abel. On Thursday Abel got his revenge. Kevin Abel raised “Cain” by registering a complete game shutout of the Hogs. On Tuesday I was rooting for the Hogs to win until...to quote the newspaper, “Arkansas fans serenaded Heimlich with the “Calling the Hogs” chant as he walked to the dugout after getting pulled with the bases loaded.” Oregon pitcher Luke Heimlich had given up four runs to Arkansas in the 5th inning of the game. Heimlich is a first-rate pitcher who didn’t perform like one in Omaha...he had failed to get out of the 3rd inning in both of his previous starts. I was initially in Arkansas’s corner Tuesday because Dave Van Horn, their head coach, used to coach for Nebraska and Arkansas had never won a championship in Omaha before. I found it hard to root for Arkansas though because I simply do not like the Southeastern Conference (SEC). The last straw for me though was that show of disrespect by Arkansas fans for Heimlich as he left the game.

    I was all in for Oregon State after that.

    Paybacks are hell!
