Owings does it again

In 2005, Micah Owings used his two-way ability to make Tulane the top-ranked team in college baseball for much of the season.

That Green Wave team entered the College World Series ranked No. 1 in the country thanks in large part to Owings and Brian Bogusevic.

Now, with the major league postseason right around the corner, Owings finds himself in the spotlight again.

Owings, now a rookie pitcher with Arizona, stepped in for defending NL Cy Young winner Brandon Webb on 2 1/2 hours notice Thursday and spun 6 1-3 innings of shutout baseball against Pittsburgh to keep the Diamondbacks on top of the NL West.

And, oh by the way, the former first baseman went 4-for-4 at the plate with three doubles. It seems that when the pressure is at its highest, the Georgia boy who made a name for himself in the Big Easy is at his best.
