USC junior pitcher Andrew Triggs entered Thursday’s game against Washington with an ERA of 5.13. He finished it with an ERA of 4.52.Triggs pitched his and the Trojans’ (17-20, 7-6) second complete game of the season, throwing nine innings of one-run ball as USC took game one of a three-game set against the Huskies (11-24, 2-8).His one allowed run came in the very first inning off an RBI double. Triggs shut down the Huskies offense after that.The righty recorded a career-high 10 strikeouts, allowing just five hits and issuing just one free pass. Triggs would allow just six base runners and retired the Huskies in order in the third, fourth, fifth and ninth, including 11 straight at one point.Washington starter Geoff Brown was terrific, as well. The lefty scattered two runs and six hits over eight innings, striking out four and walking just one. But the two runs were all the Trojans needed.Both runs came in the second for the Trojans. With two outs, sophomore third baseman Adam Landecker singled up the middle, and freshman designated hitter Kevin Swick walked. Up stepped true-freshman shortstop James Roberts, who delivered a two-run double into the gap in right center.That was it for the scoring on both sides, and for most action in general throughout the game. Washington coach Lindsay Meggs was ejected in the seventh inning, but otherwise Triggs and Brown kept the game moving quickly.

by, Dr. Bill ThomasTweet10Share17Share4Email31 SharesFor an author publication is something like a birthday. The little idea that wouldn’t let go, the idea that seemed to grow in your mind, the idea that became a book— is presented to the world.It is very exciting and also very frightening. You can pick the book up (it’s on the front table of all U.S. Barnes and Noble stores) and hold it and, like a baby, it feels so small and light. Also like a baby, your book will make its own way in the world. People will love it– or hate it. People will hand it to friends– or ignore it. No one can say what will happen because no one really knows. So happy birthday “Second Wind: Navigating the Passage to a Slower, Deeper, and More Connected Life.”My happiness is somewhat tempered by the changes that are remaking the world of books and publishing. If you care to look at the best selling books that have anything at all to do with aging, they are nearly all about “anti-aging.” Best-sellers are the domain of celebrities with breathless accounts of “anti-aging miracles.” The fact that Second Wind is a pro-aging book written by a (relatively) unknown author means that it is going to have a tough time getting started in the world.It is true that Second Wind was named in the top 10 nonfiction books of 2014 by Publishers Weekly. It is true that the book will be displayed at the entrance to every Barnes and Noble in America today (and many independent book stores). And yes it has been placed in thousands of libraries across America. Widespread distribution is one of the dwindling perks of having a big publisher. But that is not enough.Let me tell you where you won’t find Second Wind. You won’t see the book featured on This Morning or on Good Morning America. You won’t see it on The Daily Show. Oprah did not select it for her book club. In fact, I haven’t been invited to talk about Second Wind on any television program anywhere, let alone one with national reach.As the author of a book that explains why our society struggles against positive messages about aging I knew better than to expect our virulently ageist mainstream media to pay attention to, let alone promote, a book dedicated to exploring the hidden virtues of aging. My extraordinary team of publicists at Simon and Schuster hope to prove me wrong and have not given up pitching the book to national media. But I believe this book will have to find its audience the old-fashioned way– by word of mouth. We are going on the road with the The Second Wind Tour because we want to share its message with as many people as possible. We want to start a new conversation that is rich with possibilities.I now see myself as a writer AND a cultural critic AND an impresario of deeply authentic live experiences:I am a writer and I am proud of the Second Wind book and I do believe that it will help others reimagine their lives, their dreams.I am a critic of the relentless “adultification” of American society and remain dedicated to illuminating the virtues of life beyond adulthood.I am also the producer of a new kind of experience — I believe in the power of live “non-fiction” theater to share insights and, most importantly, help people understand why they so often feel that their lives are out of balance.This is not my dream alone. You can share this journey with me. You are invited to read the book and dispute, embrace and improve its arguments. You are invited to join us in 25 cities across America as we present a theatrical experience that celebrates the joy that comes with catching hold of life’s Second Wind.You are invited into a new conversation about life, growth and reimagination. And the conversation starts right here.The book is currently available for sale at many locations including amazon.comRelated PostsIntroducing The Second Wind TourLast summer I was taken by the feeling that the time was right to start a new conversation about why we so often feel that our lives are out of balance– and how we can restore that balance.What’s Your Best Books on Aging Reading List?In the time-honored tradition of year-end lists and gift ideas, I’m asking ChangingAging’s bloggers and audience to submit their personal Top 5 Books on Aging reading lists.Tribes of EdenIn the mid-1990’s I decided to write a book about aging. It was going to be a serious, deeply researched non-fiction book that would update the state of knowledge regarding aging. In the evenings, when I sat down to write this book — I had trouble concentrating. Instead of working…Tweet10Share17Share4Email31 SharesTags: publishing Second Wind Tour Simon and Schuster
