Here's a quick recap of Friday's super regional action:
Baton Rouge Super Regional
Friday's most dramatic game has yet to reach a conclusion. Upstart Stony Brook carried a 2-1 lead into the ninth inning in Baton Rouge, but JaCoby Jones led off the bottom of the ninth with a game-tying solo homer—and that was just the beginning of the drama. Stony Brook regained the lead with a run in the top of the 10th—and LSU answered again with a solo homer by Tyler Moore to tie the game in the bottom of the frame. The Seawolves took the lead yet again in the top of the 11th—and LSU answered yet again with a third solo homer, this time off the bat of Mason Katz to lead off the frame. The game was halted by rain in the top of the 12th and will be resumed at 11:05 ET on Saturday. Game Two will start 50 minutes after the conclusion of the first game.
Los Angeles Super Regional
UCLA erased a 2-1 deficit with five runs in the sixth to beat Texas Christian 6-2. After TCU elected to intentionally walk Brenton Allen (who has just 14 at-bats on the season) to load the bases in the sixth, Cody Regis hit a three-run double to highlight UCLA's rally. Adam Plutko (7 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 7 K) allowed just a pair of solo homers and improved to 11-3 on the season.
Tallahassee Super Regional
Florida State trailed 1-0 before storming ahead with seven runs in the fourth inning against Stanford ace Mark Appel (4 IP, 5 H, 7 R, 5 ER, 4 BB, 3 K), then breaking the game wide open over the next three innings to win a 17-1 laugher. Devon Travis (3-for-5, 3 R, 6 RBI) and James Ramsey (3-for-5, 2 R, 2 RBI) led the FSU attack in support of Brandon Leibrandt (6 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K).
Tucson Super Regional
St. John's scored five runs in the fourth against Kurt Heyer (9.1 IP, 17 H, 6 ER, 0 BB, 4 K) to take a 5-0 lead, but Arizona rallied back to force extra innings. The Red Storm took a 6-5 lead in the 10th, but the Wildcats answered with two runs in the bottom of the frame, capped by Trent Gilbert's walk-off RBI single against James Lomangino, giving Arizona a 7-6 win.
