Here is your Fullerton Regional for Day 1 of action.
Minnesota 3 Cal-State Fullerton 1
FULLERTON, CA – Minnesota’s Seth Rosin scattered just three hits over eight innings of work and the fourth-seeded Golden Gophers scored all the runs they would need in the first inning en route to a 3-1 upset of top-seeded Cal State Fullerton to close out the first day of the 2010 NCAA Baseball Regionals at Goodwin Field.
Minnesota (31-28, 1-0 in NCAA Regional play) advances in the winners bracket to face third-seeded New Mexico, a 9-5 winner over No. 2 Stanford earlier in the day. First pitch is scheduled for 8 p.m. PDT or 50 minutes following the completion of the first game.
New Mexico 9 Stanford 5
FULLERTON, Calif. — The Stanford Cardinal probably are wishing the Lobos NCAA drought was 49 years instead of 48. On Saturday, the Lobos will be looking to make one more NCAA team unhappy to see "New Mexico" on the NCAA World Series bracket.
A handful of Cardinal pitchers found out pretty much what most pitching staffs find out about the Ray Birmingham Lobos. Eventually, these guys will mash you — or simply find a way to get it done.
The Lobos found their way through four Cardinal pitchers in the top of the seventh inning to score four runs on two singles. The Cardinal-aided rally — three walks and one Lobo hit-by-pitch — pushed the Lobos up 7-4. UNM held on for a 9-5 win in a first-round NCAA game at the Cal State Fullerton Regional.
