Our final battles of the day, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go back and let your voice be heard on the rest of them! You’ll find the links at the bottom of this post.
3) Matt Morris vs. 11) Brian Jordan
How they got here: Morris easily eliminated Todd Zeile 39-4, Jordan squeaked past Jason Motte 23-20.
Notes: Jordan was the only upset of the first day, taking out a current Cardinal to boot. Now a couple of guys that just overlapped each other in St. Louis take to the field.
2) Red Schoendienst vs. 7) Jason Isringhausen
How they got here: The Ol’ Redhead blasted Todd Worrell 41-1, Izzy said lights out to Ken Reitz 33-7.
Notes: Easily the most letters in any of the tournament matchups. Even if Izzy gets out to an early lead, this might be the hardest save he’s ever tried to lock down.
That’ll do it for today’s pairings. Come back tomorrow when we tackle the second half of the second round!
