Couple of interesting tidbits about that 13-inning Sunday game.


When the recap says the third out came on a fielder's choice with runners on first and third, that's true. What happened was a ball was lined somewhat softly straight to the third baseman (Servin), who had it but the ball popped out of his glove. Meanwhile, the runner at first apparently forgot the out count (2) and dove back to the bag. So Servin just picked up the ball and gently tossed it to second.

Give y'all the second tidbit in a bit. Hint: prayers work.....

Prayers Answered

So, the Javelinas' half of the 13th inning starts with a grounder hit directly to the 1st baseman ..... but -- quite miraculously-- the ball veers two feet right but stays "fair" just before the fielder can glove it and step on the bag.

I have never seen a clearer example of Divine Intervention in my life. Direct answer to prayers for a rally. That's how the inning started, and it ended with a walk-off grand slam.

I say this somewhat tongue in cheek, but prayers were definitely asked and answered. Who knows if the Lord would actually get involved with a baseball game?

Thoughts?

Curious. Anyone ever put up prayers related to baseball or sports -- maybe related to your kid? Any recognizable result stories?

That pebble ball-bounce was almost eerie.

Thanks, Lance! That was some amazing baseball to watch, and I'm just glad that Eric could do what he does to help the team get wins. Go Javi's!!!

I pitched at Angelo State 2007-2009, that conference always has some great teams. And I’m getting old...

Funny hearing the name Kasparek, I played in the tx collegiate league with him one summer. Guy was one giant goofball, only UT player I ever met that wasn’t arrogant as hell.

This is truly awesome! Coach Dave: the fact that you took time out to go find Eric, who you've really only known from my posts on here is awesome. He was impressed. Heck, I am impressed, as well! Thanks so much. Really shows the kind of spirit that exists on TBH among the brotherhood. You rock, sir!

As far as today's games:

We split. The Javelinas took the first game 15-2; Cameron took the second 6-4.
Eric did not pitch in either game, although he was warming in the bullpen at the end of the second game, which was tied in the bottom of the last inning but got away quickly with a homerun by Cameron.

My pleasure. It was fairly easy. Went to the bull pen and said which one of you guys is a submarine pitcher from Navarro. They all looked at me like who the sam hill is this guy? He was standing right beside me.
He did mention for you to "send money" he was a starving college kid

Thanks, again, Dave. That's funny.

Update: Saturday's game was postponed until today due to heavy rain Friday rendering the field unplayable. Anyway, Javelinas currently lead Cameron Aggies 1-0 in the 4th inning. Game is being streamed live at the link I'll post below. In case you can't access it that way, just go to the TAMUK Baseball site, click on Schedule, then scroll down to today's game and click on Watch. They have announcers, replays and everything!

Update:

The bad news is the team lost today 5-4 in the 12th inning. From my standpoint, Eric put forth an epic effort to keep his team in it. Entering after the 3rd Inning, Eric pitched 8 complete innings, yielding No Earned Runs on only 2 hits, while striking out 6. Did all this in 96 pitches. Not bad for a short-term reliever and closer, historically. After he finished the 11th, Cameron got a man on in the 12th, and ultimately singled him in for the win.

So, Eric didn't figure in the Box Score, but his ERA is now 1.95, and he has 27 Strikeouts in 27.2 Innings Pitched.


His record remains: 4-0, with 3 Saves

Cool thing is that these long stints are giving entire line-ups two or three looks at Eric without being able to hit the ball squarely. A recap article a couple of weeks ago referred to Eric and another Javelina reliever "mystifying" a potent line-up from West Texas A&M.

It was only three weeks ago, that this short-stint/closer went 6 innings and 101 pitches against Angelo State. Now, he goes 8 innings. Closest stamina comparison I can recall is going back to 8th grade, when he threw a complete game 78-pitch gem for a semi-final World Series win in a USSSA select game. Neat thing about that series was the fact that his teammates voted him their season's Most Valuable Player.

Here's the recap of Monday's game, from the Javelina website.

Nice subhead: "Sandoz throws eight scoreless innings in relief with six strikeouts"

TBH brothers and sisters: help me out, please. Follow me on Twitter as Tradtiger @Tradtiger and Tradtiger@Tradtiger1. (Apparently I accidentally opened two different accounts). Feel free to retweet to all followers -- especially baseball people and scouts.

Anyway, my purpose -- stated clearly on Twitter -- for being on Twitter -- is to try and get son Eric @TheSoarin_Eagle Sandoz #submarine pitcher into pro baseball AND to help other parents get their young athletes into college level sports.

Update:
Javelinas took the series over Tarleton State, winning three out of four. Anticipating weather today, played two 9-inning games yesterday. Eric pitched 3.2 innings in the final game. He struck out 7 in that span, allowing only two hits and one run. The run is his first earned run allowed since early February. Season stats now: ERA 2.01, with 34K's in 31.2 IP; Batting Avg Against .176. Record 4-0, w/3 Saves.

Update:

Bittersweet moment. Last day as a Javelina. Last day as a college pitcher. Played in the Lone Star Conference semi-final tournament today versus West Texas A&M's Buffaloes. Our Texas A&M-Kingsville Javelinas couldn't quite figure out starter Joe Beckett's 95 mph FB, along with a nice breaking ball. Final was 2-0, Buffs.

Eric entered in the fourth with 2 on, 1 out; threw 3 pitches and got a ground-ball double play. Went on to allow No Runs on 2 Hits, with 3 Strikeouts over Four complete innings.

Finishes his career this season at TAMUK as follows: ERA 2.35; 46 Innings Pitched; 48 Strikeouts; .189 Opponents BA; 4-1, with 3 Saves.

Edit: Want to add a note of thanks to classy WT Buff fans. No less than 4 parents made a point to speak to me and offer compliments for the way Eric pitched. That is a good-hitting team he shut down.

Glad he finished on a strong outing.

Btw, just need to make a correction on the opposing pitcher's name: it was Joe Corbett (not Beckett).

Thanks, RTP. Bet your correct about bigger, better things. The kind of grit it takes to compete at these levels should translate to anything. Still hoping for the playing route. I believe he can do it. Time will tell.

Thanks. And you never know how that might happen. I know there were at least two scouts (Boston and Milwaukee) at yesterday's game. I'm sure they were there to look at the big righty Corbett for WT, but they got a pretty good view of the submarine guy Sandoz doing what he does -- coming in with men on, holding, then getting outs for 4 scoreless innings. The only two hits were bunts that could easily have been outs.

Three-pitch Double Play. Eric comes into conference semi-final game with 2 on, 1 out; throws two swing-and-miss strikes, then gets a weakly hit grounder up the middle for an inning-ending double play. Goes on to pitch a total of 4 scoreless innings, allowing only two (bunt) hits.

Hope this video works for all:

If video doesn't play, you can see it by going to YouTube and search: Eric Sandoz baseball.

This video is named "Eric 3pitch DP vs WT copyyt"
