Collision knocks Owls' Rendon out of game
This is a devastating loss for Rice, and it's only the top of the second. Rendon, one of the best players in the country, was 3-for-4 on Friday against LSU with two RBIs and a home run. The true freshman is a standout defensive player, an excellent hitter and a leader and plays beyond his years. He had started all 60 games for the Owls and was batting .390. Jimmy Comerota moved from first to third base to replace him. Rendon won't be coming back, making Rice's 1-0 deficit seem even more troubling now.
