Matt Gelb's article this morning in the Cape Cod Times reports that today's pitching matchup between Bourne and Falmouth pits Missouri college teammates against each other. Rick Zagone for Bourne will face Kyle Gibson for Falmouth -- both Missouri Tigers. This one day after pro prospect Aaron Crow -- also of Missouri -- got the win for Falmouth in Bourne yesterday. I overheard one of the Missouri players yesterday in Bourne asking a young lady (who probably also was from Missouri) who she plans to root for.
What are they putting in the water out there in Missouri? Whatever it is, it spells M-i-s-e-r-y for batters. Whatever it is, it got their coach, Tim Jamieson, named as the midwest coach of the year.
Missouri finished the year ranked 24th overall by Baseball America with a 42-18 record.
In the Eastern Division tonight at Chatham it will be Tom Milone of USC for Chatham and Scott Green of Kentucky for Y-D.
