I said before the World Series started that I wouldn't be surprised to see La Crosse go "two and BBQ" and Whitewater make the best-of-three Championship Series.

Even though La Crosse dominated Whitewater and the rest of the WIAC this season, they ended up drawing the "Pool of Death" (#1, #3, #4, and #6 teams in the Nation) while Whitewater ended up in the Pool without a Top 10 team.

And once again, I would be wrong.....

La Crosse bounces back after losing their first game to knock off Emory, while Whitewater's the team to go "two and BBQ." The Warhawks bats went silent, and they apparently forgot their gloves at the hotel committing five errors in the first three innings leading to three unearned runs in a 4-3 loss to St. John's Fischer.

For those that might be interested in attending, La Crosse is scheduled to play at 7:30, not 8:30. Times listed on the bracket are EST, not local time.
