CWS: Day 5 – Supers 1 & 2

Bulldogs Fall, Cardinal Shocks… Day Two of the Super Regionals with some interesting results.

Fullerton Super: The Stanford Cardinal are moving on to Omaha.  The shock Cal State Fullerton in Game @ winning 8-5. Castro Valley High School’s Jason Castro hits a bases clearing double in the sixth to get that 8-5 lead they would never lose. The Titans are sent packing. Stanford is really surprising me… as i didn’t think they would make it out of their own regional bracket, let alone Fullerton’s Super.

PLAYER OF THE GAME: Stanford   CASTRO: 3-4, 2B, 4 RBI, R, SB

Tempe Super: Game 1 of this regional really put Fresno State in its place. The Cinderella Team out of the WAC got swatted back to reality by the Sun Devil bats. A 5 run fifth and 4 run  eighth demolished the Bulldogs, who appear to be fading into the Arizona Sunset. Fresno State’s run ends today I fear.

PLAYER OF THE GAME: ASU  Sontag 2-4, 2 HR, 3 R, 4 RBI, BB

Athens Super: NC State is still alive. They defeated the #8 Nationally Ranked Georgia Bulldogs to force a Game Three today. I see Georgia as the winner in this three game set, but the boys from North Carolina are being a little pesky. The win featured a four run fourth seventh including an RBI double by Foschi. He’s our..

PLAYER OF THE GAME: NC ST  Foschi: 2-3, 2B, 2 RBI, SB

Cary Super: UNC is the obvious favorite here and no problem dispatching coastal carolina yesterday 9-4. Evenly Distributed Offense and solid pitching make the Tar Heels a difficult foe for CCU… It’s doubtful they will respond in anyway today.

PLAYER OF THE GAME: UNC  WIlliams 3-4, HR, 2 RBI, 2 R

Tallahassee Super: Florida State answers back and now it’s a toss up in Game 3. I knew this one would go the distance and Wichita State now must find a way to out hit the Seminole Bats. The 14- 4 win for Florida State featured huge offensive performances by Tapley, McGee and Posey. The Florida State Bats are going to take control and move on to Omaha.

PLAYER OF THE GAME: Florida State   McGee: 3-4, HR, 3 RBI, 2 R, BB

Houston Super: Rice and A&M in an all Texas Super. This one could stay interesting into Monday. Rice takes Game 1, but only by 2-runs. A & M Attempted a comeback in the top of the ninth but was shutdown by Rice’s St. Clair who got the win. It will be interesting to see if A & M will respond and force a game three Monday. I’m not going to even try on this one.

PLAYER OF THE GAME: Rice   Dodson 3-3, 2B, 4 RBI, 2 R, BB, SB

Baton Rouge Super: Uc Irvine make a case for itself in the Louisiana regional taking game one from the LSU Tiger 11-5. Irvine got hot in the back half of the game scoring 9 runs in 5,6,7,8… Irvine pitcher Gorgen pitched six strong innings allowing just one earned run. Anteater Bardeen hits a pinch hit homerun in the eighth inning to support the cause. LSU will bounce back today and force Game Three tomorrow night.

PLAYER OF THE GAME: UCI   Cusick 3-4, 2 2B, 2 RBI, R

Coral Gables Super: Miami Answering back after being beaten by Arizona in Game 1. This offensive battle featured 24 runs in a game that Arizona looked like they might win. They jumped out to an early lead putting up a four spot in the bottom of the first, then tying the game at seven in the fourth. Miami’s six-spot also in the fourth included a homerun each for Hagerty and Alonso.  And don’t think this game was close after that inning. Miami left 13 runners on Base in this Game. I’m not worried, They’ll advance as the #1 seed.  RF Draben drew six walks and 2 runs… Six walks…

PLAYER OF THE GAME: Miami    Sobolewski 3-6, HR,
