Bootleg Video: Greg Reynolds Post-Game

The challenge for Stanford's Friday starter is the array of opposing aces who take the mound. A classic example came last night when Cal State Fullerton's Wes Roemer held Cardinal bats quiet for one run through most of the game. It took a big night from Stanford junior righty Greg Reynolds to keep the Cardinal in the game, and he delivered. Afterward Reynolds talked about his first collegiate Friday start.

He threw strikes for his first six pitches Friday night, showing us that he is ready to start the 2006 season with the ability he flashed at the end of 2005 and through his Cape Cod baseball the following summer.  Reynolds allowed just one run through 6 2/3 innings last night in the first Friday start of his Stanford career, all the more impressive considering the potent bats he faced from #5-ranked Cal State Fullerton.  With three strikes against no walks in his work, Reynolds kept the Card in a low-scoring game that was ultimately won with dramatics in Stanford's bottom of the ninth inning.

Reynolds walked away with a no decision, but it was truly a victory for the 6'7" junior to pitch so well right out of the gate against an elite opponent.  He was rightfully proud of his work afterward, and proud of freshman teammate Jeremy Bleich for the 2 2/3 innings of no-hit ball he provided in relief.
