Complete Irreverence

Since I am bored at work, I decided to look something up.  I wanted to see the LSU's batting average in games where right handed pitchers started over the course of the season, because of ESPN's praise for their 35-3 record against RHP.  Prior to last nights game, the Tigers were hitting .319 in games where right handers started the ball game.  Last night, Jungmann held them to 5 of 32, or .156, less than half of their season average.  Now, I had to leave after the 5th inning last night, so I had to follow the game by contantly refreshing ESPN.com, and after the game had ended, I looked for a story to see what happened.  They said that Jungmann had the CG, only allowing 5 hits, and of course talked about his 6 pitches in Game 1.  That was it, no respect, no praise, as if it was the Nationals batting against the Red Sox (No offense).  A Freshman went out last night and pitched a complete game against a team that was averaging 9.5 runs a game in the CWS.  He was one missed hop away from a shutout.  LSU's bats were supposed to be unstoppable, and when they did get stopped, it is as if it is no big deal.  I know we are used to this, but, to me, this is on a whole new level. 

Ok, I'm done ranting.
