 Friday night at Hoglund had a festive feel.  There was a "throwback" theme to the night, although I was unclear if the 60's the 70's or the 80's were being celebrated.  Baby Jay borrowed some of my old pants for the night.

The real story of the night was Shaeffer Hall, here getting the jumbo tron treatment on the scoreboard.  Shaeffer pitched a five hit complete game to set the tone for the series.

T.J. Walz kept it rolling on Saturday.  Walz struck out a career high 10 batters while recording his fourth victory of the year.  OSU went into Sunday frustrated at the plate and rag armed in the bullpen.

Sunday's game was played in horrible conditions.  It was cold and windy.  There was a rain drizzle for almost the entire game, puncuated by the occassional steady downpour.  Still the game went on the the Hawks fought through.  It took 10 innings to get the third victory 4-3.  Rally caps and adrenaline kept the home dug out warm through that last rally.
