Canes Defeat Bethune Cookman

Miami took care of business today in Game 1 of their CWS Regional. Much had been made of the fact the Canes got the #1 overall seed but still somehow received the toughest draw of any of the teams hosting a regional. I still don't understand it, but what can be done? Maybe the hatred of the football team spilled over onto our baseball team, who knows.

Regardless, Miami has to win to prove they are among the elite. It didn't really matter who they were matched up against. Today's game vs Bethune Cookman was key. BC held a 9th inning lead against us earlier this year, and was the regional's 4th seed, so you can imagine just how difficult a draw this was for the hometown Canes.

The 7-4 victory was hard-earned, but still welcome when every win counts and 2 losses sends you packing. Enrique Garcia gave us a good outing, which is good news because we can now send in our aces Chris Hernandez and Eric Erickson out for games 2 and 3 of the regional and give us a good chance of advancing to the Super Regional.
