2007 College World Series
Winson Thai

In 2007, Ivan Chen and the LIU baseball team return to the College World Series, held in Tuscan, Arizona this time, hoping to turn things around after last yearís humiliating elimination. The softball team misses the postseason and does not qualify for the series, but Sarah Gilbert tags with the boys for support.

The Blackbirds reach the semi-finals, where they once again fight the OSU Cowboys. LIU scores five runs off of starter Matt Gardner over the first two innings and two more off of reliever Tyler Lyons in the top of the fourth to lead 7-1. Jared Starks and Rebel Ridling homer for OSU, respectively, in the sixth and seventh off of reliever Jesse Johnson. Paul Lopez throws a perfect eighth, then Chen comes to pitch in the ninth. He permits a two-out homer to Ty Wright, cutting his teamís lead to 7-4 and nerve-racking them as they fear he will blow it again as OSU fans pray for another miraculous comeback versus him, but their wish does not occur. After Coach Don Maines sends him an angry message, Chen faces Rafael Thomas as he hits the 0-2 pitch right back at him. Chen makes a quick reflex catch to close the game and send LIU to the championship round. In the previous game, OSU goes up 1-0 on Matt Lopezís groundout in the top of the first off of Mike Maynard with runners on second and third. However, this is the only time OSU leads in the series. Maynard and Chen shut them out for the rest of the game. LIU ties the score in the fourth off of Oliver Odle on Jimmy Lopovichís sacrifice fly with runners on second and third, then goes atop 2-1 off of Odle next inning on Marcus Wynnís RBI double with men on first and second. LIU strands 12 runners.

For the finals, LIU will play the Arizona Wildcats, whose softball team is Ivanís favorite. Initially, he feels joyful, but becomes uncomfortable after learning the Wildcatsí star catcher is his childhood friend Daniel Butler, who also loses confidence after learning Ivan is part of the opposing team. As it will be like fighting their best friend in a winner-take-all, neither of them wants to play in the series now, but Danielís girlfriend Jill Malina, who plays for the Arizona softball team and has Ivan as a friend on MySpace, urges the men to discuss this with each other and on the day before Game One, they swear to play their best and that no matter what occurs, they will be friends forever. Jill says she will be happy no matter who emerges victorious. During this, her team wins the Womenís College World Series for the second year in a row and they celebrate this with a party at a local tavern. A few big fans join in too and Sarah hangs out with them.

Chen does not pitch in the first game of the best-of-three as LIU, batting second, pounces Arizona 12-1. In the next match, LIU is up 3-0, having scored in the first, fifth and seventh off of Brad Mills when Travis Peep puts Arizona on the board in the bottom of the seventh with a blast off of starter Matt Owens. LIU gets that run back on Gerard Tingosís blast in the eighth off of Mike Colla, but Kenny Cedel allows a two-run home run in the bottom of the inning to Oliver Padre to trim his teamís lead to 4-3. Coach Maines replaces Cedel with Chen. He retires the next two batters and returns to pitch in the ninth and faces Butler after getting two outs. He considers intentionally walking him due to the situation between them, but then recalls the promise they made and pitches to him as Wildcat fans at this game, including the softball team, cheer for Butler, hoping he could force a Game 3 or at least tie this one. While he fights hard, hitting three foul balls straight and working the count to 2-2, he loses the fight as Chen strikes him out swinging on the sixth pitch. The game ends, the Wildcat fansí dreams of having two world champions in a year are dashed and LIU wins its second title in five years. The home crowd collapses in despair as Chen falls to his knees on the mound relieved that the series is done. The rest of his team comes out and celebrates at home plate.

Daniel goes to Ivan and asks if he is okay, then congratulates him on the victory. Ivan gets up and says he himself was good and both admit this was the best game they have played. When Ivan asks if they are still friends, Daniel says yes. They cry in happiness and have a friendship hug on the mound. Initially, the softball players are befuddled, but after Jill and her best friend Callista Balko explain their situation to them, they go ďAwwĒ and applause and everybody else follows. Jill runs up to the two to join in their hug, saying she is proud of the way they played. At a press conference after the game, the Blackbirds are given the championship trophy and Ivan thanks Daniel for maintaining their friendship in hard times and Jill for encouraging them to fight their best, which made this a nice series. Butler is given MVP despite Arizonaís loss for hitting six home runs, 12 RBIs, nine extra base hits, and stealing four bases, which are all records.

The Blackbirds head home the next day, but having nothing to do until he starts work in July, Ivan stays with Daniel and Jill in their hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona. Sarah stays also, not wanting to leave her lover behind. Daniel and Jill would usually show Ivan and Sarah around town. Before they leave, Ivan tells Daniel and Jill he had a fun time with them and hopes to play them again in next yearís World Series.
