After the game, All-American catcher Chris Okey took it upon himself to perpetrate a prank on the Tigers' star pitcher with a dose of humble pie--cream pie, to be specific. The consummate teammate Krall took it in stride and laughingly said afterward that the worst part was tasting what he thought to be whipped cream that was in actuality shaving cream. Apparently, not even a face full of shaving cream was able to rattle Krall, as he continued with his post-game ESPN interview without missing a beat.
