A Brief Update on the 2009 College Baseball Postseason

Why college baseball?  Because today’s collegians are tomorrow’s Bus Leaguers, that’s why.

The right side of the Super Regional bracket got started last night with Cal State Fullerton, Arkansas, Ole Miss and LSU gaining 1-0 advantages in their best-of-three series.  Louisville, Florida State, Virginia and Rice try to avoid elimination today.  Any potential third games will be tomorrow.

The left side of the bracket starts today and continues through to Monday if necessary.

There are eight games on the schedule today (all times are Eastern Standard Time).

It’s Hard Out Here For A Buckeye

Don’t look now, but Florida State has unleashed the hounds on poor, unsuspecting Ohio State.  When the score is 32-0 after five innings, it’s probably not your day.  FSU’s Stephen Cardullo, Ohmed Danesh, and Mike Meschke are a combined 14-19 with 13 runs scored and 13 runs batted in.  They currently lead 33-2.

Assuming there’s no more scoring, Ohio State will be eliminated with two losses by a combined score of 57-10.  That’s a rough weekend.  The Seminoles will be the first team to nail down a spot in the Super Regionals.

Update: The final score was 37-6.  Florida State is actually the second team to clinch a Super Regional slot – North Carolina advanced with a 12-1 win over Kansas earlier in the day.
