Waiting for runs at Rosenblatt

June, 17, 2009
OMAHA, Neb. -- We're halfway through this elimination game between Arkansas and Virginia and still waiting for the game's first run.

Virginia had a chance to break the scoreless tie in the bottom of the fourth. Phil Gosselin led off with a double deep to right and later advanced to third on a wild pitch to UVa starter Danny Hultzen. But a pair of strikeouts to end the inning left Gosselin stranded on third. The one to end the inning was the second of the game and the seventh of the CWS for center fielder Jarrett Parker, who is now 0-for-8 here in Omaha -- although he does have four walks.

The Hogs and the Hoos each have four hits and three left on base through 4½ innings at The Blatt.

A lot of attention is being paid to the local radar as several bands of thunderstorms have popped up in this part of the state. And there is a tornado watch -- not an uncommon thing on a hot summer night here in the heartland -- until 9 p.m. local time.
