Nathan Rode – Arkansas righthander Ryne Stanek was one of the bigger highlights of the night. He pitched 3 2/3 innings, allowing two hits and two walks while striking out four. The only trouble he found was in the second inning when he allowed a leadoff single, got two outs and then loaded the bases with a walk and fielder's choice. But he got Kentucky outfielder Austin Cousino to fly out to end the inning. He cruised through the third inning and was taken out in the fourth with two outs after walking a batter. He had thrown 59 pitches.

It’s unclear if Jeremy Martinez really needs any help, especially when it has to do with USA Baseball events. He went 7-for-13 at the USA Baseball complex in Cary (where Game 3 will be held) during the NHSI. He went 4-for-10 during the Tournament of Stars, with three hits — one a walk-off homer — coming in one game. He cooled off to a 1-for-7 during the Red vs. Blue “intrasquad” games the 18U hopefuls played before the Classic. But considering he hit .387 for Team USA as the 18U’s primary catcher last year, it’s may seem like a safe bet he’ll get the chance to play again, this time in South Korea for the IBAF Junior World Championships in September.
