Update

Court records show that Josh Shirley, Shaq and Paul Richardson were all arrested on Wednesday afternoon for felony theft and released on Thursday.
The Richardsons both had $20,000 bail, while Shirley was released without bail.
It appears the three had a court date on Friday, but no comments have been made.
The LA Sheriff’s Department records office is closed for the weekend, and the officers involved are likely at the Wooden Memorial.

More info as it comes.

*To clarify: Originally I wrote Shirley was held without bail, but I misunderstood the report. He was indeed released without bail.

That was fast

TCU pitcher Kyle Winkler threw nine pitches, one for a strike, and was pulled with no outs in the first inning, moments after Blair Dunlap smoked a three-run home run to left field. UCLA is up 3-1 in the first with a Cody Regis on first base and one out.
This, after Trevor Bauer gave up a home run to Bryan Holaday in the first inning.

Needless to say, this is a crazy start.

OMAHA, Neb. –

Matt Purke had four million reasons to enter professional baseball last June.

He had one reason to attend college.

He’s waited all season for this, through 17 starts and a nation-leading 16 wins and zero losses, his chance to send the TCU Horned Frogs to the College World Series championship series.

TCU’s fabulous freshman shut down UCLA for 6 1/3 innings before giving way to the Horned Frogs’ bullpen, who closed out a 6-2 win in front of 22,334 at Omaha’s Rosenblatt Stadium on Friday afternoon.

The teams will meet again this afternoon at 11 a.m. to determine half of the championship series matchup, the winner advancing to meet either South Carolina or Clemson.

“This place is an adventure on its own; you never know what’s going to happen here,” said Purke, who spurned a $4 million signing bonus from the Texas Rangers as the No. 14 pick in the 2009 draft. “But it’s just the same ballpark. Just another day of baseball and you’ve got to attack it the same way. I was able to go out today a little different than what I’m used to throwing, but hey, I’ll take ground-ball outs all day.”
