A number of today’s early games are over, and higher seeds have won in six of the first seven games to finish. The one exception came in Austin, where third-seeded Boston College overcame a 5-2 deficit against Texas State with six runs in the ninth inning. John Spatola’s three-run homer was the big blow. Texas State scored twice in the bottom of the frame on Paul Goldschmidt’s two-run homer, but BC held on for the win.
Some other observations:
• Coastal Carolina cruised to an 11-3 win over Kansas behind a strong outing from Nick McCully, and the Chanticleers have sophomore lefty Cody Wheeler waiting for a potential winner’s bracket game tomorrow against North Carolina, whose struggles against southpaws have been well documented. Coastal’s got a real chance there.
• Kansas State crushed Xavier 16-8, and the Wildcats did it without star righthander A.J. Morris, who is now looming for a potential winner’s bracket showdown against his former high school teammate, Rice righty Ryan Berry. The Owls will start righty Mike Ojala today against Sam Houston State.
