AI7: Amanda Sent Home & Quick Notes on MSU

Posted by Kevin on March 20, 2008

Yesterday, I predicted Kristy, Ramiele, and Chikezie to be in last night’s bottom three with Kristy going home.  I couldn’t have been more wrong, and neither could the voters.  What the hell are you people thinking?  It’s not that I had a problem with Amanda leaving.  She didn’t have a shot to win the competition, but her one good gimmick is still better than anything Kristy Lee Cook or Ramiele have to offer.  I was surprised to see Carly in the bottom three.  I’m not much of a fan, but just her straight vocal ability should have kept her higher than Kristy/Ramiele.

Next week, the idols will sing songs from the year they were born.

Mississippi State:

As bad as State looked against Ole Miss in last week’s SEC baseball opener, sophomore Ricky Bowen pitched an absolute gem against the Rebels to prevent a series sweep.  In his SEC debut as a starting pitcher, Bowen threw a dominating complete-game, two-hit shutout over the #5 Rebels earning him honors including the SEC’s Pitcher of the Week, one of College Baseball’s newspaper’s Louisville Slugger National Players of the Week, College Baseball Foundation’s weekly “National All-Star Lineup”, and the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association’s Pro-Line Athletic National Pitcher of the Week.

In this week’s mid-week game, redshirt freshman Jason Nappi set a new SEC record by driving in 11 runs in State’s slugfest 24-10 win over UAB.  The Blazers put up six runs in the first inning off struggling Chad Crosswhite and raced out to an 8-2 lead before the Bulldogs sent 16 batters to the plate in an 11-run fifth inning, followed by  seven more runs in the sixth.

Nappi became the first Bulldog to hit three home runs in one game since Brad Johnson accomplished the feat against Southern Mississippi in 2004.  Nappi was 3-for-5 on the evening, hitting a three-run homer and a grand slam in the same inning.  The two-homer inning tied an NCAA record and his seven runs were the second-most ever in college baseball.  In his final at-bat in the ninth, Nappi narrowly missed securing his fourth home run in the game when his bid was caught at the wall on the warning track.
