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 year’s humiliating elimination. The softball team misses the postseason and does not qualify for the series, but Sarah Gilbert tags with the boys for support.

LIU again faces the OSU Cowboys in the semifinals and wins Game 1 13-5, batting first, but only outhits OSU 10-5, stranding nine men from them walking 13. They do not score off of Matt Willis despite a hit and two walks in the first. Dan Pirillo homers and Chris Kievet hits an RBI single next inning after a walk. Jimmy Lopovich hits an RBI single after a walk in the third. OSU ties this game in the fourth via Ty Wright’s blast after two walks and leads 4-3 on three hits off of Adam Sauter. Trey Bell’s double and Greg DeSantis’ groundout after a hit and walk in the fifth put LIU up 5-4. OSU ties this game on a hit-by-pitch, walk, and sacrifice bunt and fly. After a double and two walks in the sixth, two more walks plus DeSantis’ triple puts LIU up 10-5. Lopovich homers after a hit and walk in the eighth off of Oliver Odle. Paul Lopez allows a hit in the eighth. OSU wins Game 2 15-4, just trailing after Justin Friend allows a solo shot in the first to Orlando Cruz (only homer in this game). They tie the score in the bottom half off of Robbie Owen.

LIU bats first in Game 3, scoring two runs in the first on Dan Pirillo’s shot and three in the second off of Matt Gardner, plus two off of Tyler Lyons in the fourth to go up 7-1. Jared Starks and Rebel Ridling homer in the sixth and seventh, respectively, off of reliever Jesse Johnson for OSU. Paul Lopez tosses a 1-2-3 eighth. Chen comes to pitch in the ninth and allows a two-out shot to Ty Wright, nerve-racking LIU as they fear he will blow it again. Oklahoma State fans hope for another miracle comeback versus him. Their wish does not happen. After Coach Don Maines sends him an angry message, Chen faces Rafael Thomas, who hits the 0-2 pitch right back at him. He makes a quick reflex catch to send his team to the final round.

The Blackbirds there will fight the Arizona Wildcats, whose softball team is Ivan’s favorite. He at first is joyful, but gets uncomfortable after learning their star catcher is his childhood friend Daniel Butler, who also loses confidence after learning Ivan is part of the opposing team. As it will feel like battling their best friend in a winner-take-all, neither of them wants to fight in the series now, but Daniel’s girlfriend Jill Malina, who plays for Arizona’s softball team and has Ivan as a friend on MySpace, urges them to discuss this with each other and on the day before Game 1, they promise to play their best and that no matter what occurs, they will be friends forever. Jill claims she will be happy no matter who is victorious. During this, her team wins the Women’s College World Series for the second straight year. 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. Next game, LIU is up 3-0, scoring in the first, fifth, and seventh off of Brett Lorin when Travis Peep makes it 3-1 L.I.U. with a shot off of starter Matt Owens in the bottom of the seventh. Gerard Tingos’ shot in the eighth off of Ryan Perry gives LIU that run back. Kenny Cedel allows a one-out two-run shot in the lower half to Oliver Padre. Coach Maines has Chen replace Cedel. He retires the next two guys, returns to pitch in the ninth, and faces Butler after getting two outs. He considers walking him on purpose due to the situation between the two, but recalls the promise they made and pitches to him. Wildcat fans at the 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 consecutive foul balls and working the count to 2-2, he loses the fight as Chen strikes him out swinging on the eighth pitch. The game ends, the Wildcat fans’ hopes of having two world champions in a year are gone, and LIU wins its second title in five years. The fans moan and whine. Chen falls to his knees on the mound, relieved the series is done as the rest of his team 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 hug on the mound. The softball players are at first confused, but Jill and her close friend Callista Balko explain their situation to them and they applause and go “Aww.” Everybody else follows before Jill goes to the men to join in their hug, saying she is proud of the way they played. At a press conference after the match, LIU is given the championship trophy. Ivan thanks Daniel for keeping their friendship in hard times and Jill for encouraging the pair to play their best.

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 year’s World Series.
