Did the Oregon State coach cross the line..

with his use of his freshman pitcher, Kevin Abel? He pitched 3 games in 5 days

– 95 pitches in a win over Mississippi State on Saturday to reach the CWS finals against Arkansas

– 23 pitches during an inning of relief against Arkansas on Wednesday to keep it a 1-run game

– 129 pitches in Thursday’s shutout win over Arkansas

Naturally Abel didn't want to come out of the Championship game, and he was just terrific, threw a 2 hit shutout. But should he have pitched that much in such a short period of time.
