This week we saw the first start of the season by one of the best arms in the class, the dynamic-duo from Georgia continuing their quest for world domination, and the collegiate bats doing whatever the opposite of world domination is.
• One of the most impressive things about Jonathan Gray's current run of dominance is that he's done it against quality competition, and this weekend he was facing another solid lineup in TCU. Once again, Gray was up to the challenge. The Oklahoma right-hander struck out 12 and gave up just one earned run in his nine innings of work, and didn't give up a hit until the sixth inning. Gray once again hit 100 mph on guns, and his wipeout slider kept the Horned Frogs off-balance all day.
