Flames pulled off 5 double plays today, including a couple of spectacular ones.
SS McClain O'Connor (UCSB) dove into the whole to make an impossible stop and threw a perfect relay to second baseman who made perfect exchange and those to first to nab the runner. Prettiest play I have seen in some time.
Pitcher Gunnar Groen (Pepperdine) threw a 2-hitter for 7 innings in the high temp and humidity on the OCC turf. Used only 86 pitches of which 51 were strikes. League leading ERA of 1.67. Flames bullpen finished up.
